There’s a great prelude to Friday weekend action with the Group One Fillies’ Mile in Newmarket and some really competitive handicaps in York, where I’m involved. As always, you can watch all the action on Racing TV.
Empirestateofmind has been the most consistent this season and seems to have a lot going for it here.
He has continued to improve, despite losing, since winning at Thirsk in another wide-court handicap and still looks well-treated with a 95 rating.
His draw in stall 5 looks ideal for a horse that likes to be up there and his trainer, John Quinn, and jockey, Jason Hart, are currently enjoying very good form. Everything is going well for this five-year-old and a good race seems assured.

This cheap-bought racer has certainly found gold-rimmed racetracks every time he starts. He won each of his four starts, including a very valuable nursery and a big sell-out run at the Curragh.
He’s in another here and it’s probably his toughest mission yet. I think he’ll be up to it because he’s proven himself over the course and the distance on his penultimate start and has a smart toe turn. Danny Tudhope takes over from his usual jockey but that’s not a problem, especially at York.

Has run two stunning races in his last starts, being beaten by less than a length in the Ayr Bronze Cup last time out.
Arguably he could have done even better in both contests had he not raced in the disadvantaged group in massive fields.
He may well have had the best of the draw here in stall 10. Midfield is often the best place to be in York and certainly seemed to be the case on Friday with several point guards drawn close.
Mattice has had a lot of races this season but ran his best race last time and shows no signs of overtaking. Also, he will not be inconvenienced by this descent at the minimum distance.
