Saturday's tips:

13:50 (York) Star Jasmine

14:05 (Sandown) Dual Identity

14:25 (York) New Image

14:40 (Sandown) Adaay In Devon

15:00 (York) Salt Bay

15:20 (Chester) Blue Prince

15:35 (York) Garfield Shadow


13:50 (York) Star Jasmine

It could pay to concentrate on those towards the foot of the weights with Star Jasmine selected to come out on top in the Queen Mother's Cup Handicap.

The George Boughey-trained filly shaped as though a step up in distance would suit when a close third on handicap debut over 1m1f at Hamilton recently.

She may get the better of Southern Voyage who stuck to his task well to score a 1m4f Doncaster handicap in latest.

Arrange produced a good fourth over course and distance last start and must be respected with Jody Townend in the saddle.

Runner-up that day Piecederesistance also needs to be included after subsequently posting a decent sixth-placed finish here.


14:05 (Sandown) Dual Identity

This looks competitive with slender preference going the way of Dual Identity in the Listen To Betmgm On Talksport Handicap.

The William Knight-trained gelding had the option of Royal Ascot following his comfortable course and distance success but connections can be rewarded with sticking to this track as he bids for a fourth win here.

Two Tempting battled on gamely to score by a nose attempting a competitive Epsom handicap last time. Could be thereabouts off this revised mark.

Recent Chester runner-up Dancing Magic brings good form among Group company last season. Remains well-handicapped up 1lb.

In-form and bottom-weight Great Blasket is another to note.


14:25 (York) New Image

The improving New Image was nicely on top when successful tackling this trip at Musselburgh.

Racing for trainer David O'Meara and looks to be heading in the right direction, so could defy a 4lb rise in weights in the Sky Bet Proud To Support Macmillan Handicap.

Dropping back to seven furlongs could suit Aalto. This Ian Williams-trained gelding finished a decent fourth attempting a competitive seven furlong handicap at Newbury last time and rates highly with Ryan Moore on board.

Woven might get involved following his decent fourth-placed finish over 6f at this venue.

Lightly-raced Newmarket winner Our Havana cannot be ruled out stepping up in grade for an in-form stable.


14:40 (Sandown) Adaay In Devon


Adaay In Devon can get back on the winning trail in the BetMGM: It’s Showtime Scurry Stakes.

Rod Millman’s filly has been a superb servant to her connections, with 14 career starts so far yielding six victories and four runner-up finishes.

A Listed triumph at Bath in April suggested she had improved over the winter and she has since run two fine races in defeat, finishing best of the rest behind Jasour in a Commonwealth Cup Trial at Ascot before placing third behind another exciting colt in Elite Status in Newbury’s Carnarvon Stakes.

On those two pieces of form, Adaay In Devon sets the standard as she looks to double her Listed tally and a drop back in distance from six to a stiff five furlongs is viewed as a positive move for a filly who likes to get on with her job.


15:00 (York) Salt Bay

Salt Bay is of interest in the Sky Bet Race To The Ebor Grand Cup.

Ralph Beckett’s charge may have only managed one win from eight career starts, but he has run a number of sound races in defeat, including a career-best effort when beaten a neck into third place by high-class mud lover Hamish in the John Porter at Newbury in April.

While Hamish went on to finish a one-length second to Luxembourg in the Coronation Cup at Epsom, Salt Bay has since disappointed on his return to Newbury for the Group Three Aston Park Stakes, where drying conditions perhaps went against him.

The four-year-old is the highest-rated runner in this Listed field and any rain that falls on the Knavesmire will aid his cause.


15:20 (Chester) Blue Prince

Blue Prince brings good placed form including a smart third among this handicap company over seven furlongs at Goodwood and has a leading chance in the Horseradish Catering & Events Roodee Handicap.

Witness Stand showed plenty of ability here at the May Festival when second in a 1m handicap. Remains at the same level running off the same handicap mark.

Brunel Nation won easier handicaps at Chelmsford and Newmarket before a Goodwood fourth when one place behind the main selection. Makes for appeal.

Monfrid showed promise and is open to further improvement. Looks one to note.


15:35 (York) Garfield Shadow


The £100,000 Churchill Tyres Supporting Macmillan Sprint Handicap looks as competitive as ever, with the vote going to the Richard Fahey-trained Garfield Shadow.

The three-year-old took his career record to three from three when springing a surprise at Chester’s May meeting and travelled like the best horse in the race on his latest outing at Newmarket before looking to struggle with the Newmarket dip.

Running off the same mark of 90 on this more level surface, a bold bid is anticipated.
