Too firm at York

The going has become too firm for many at York, despite the course commencing watering. At the time of writing (11:00am) there are 18 declared non-runners.

There were no winners from the 2 selections yesterday, but there were some good things to draw from the races. WORKFORCE looked very uncomfortable and unbalanced for the majority of the race, staying on over the final quarter-mile to be 2nd to the Aidan O’Brien horse Cape Blanco. My initial reaction was that the horse ran green and perhaps didn’t like the track. But, apparently the horse had pulled its bit through its mouth, which explains him hanging, so all-in-all this wasn´t a bad effort. He could prove to be much better over 12f NTO.

In the Hambleton Handicap, the ground was too quick for MULL OF KILLOUGH and it was withdrawn. As I expected, there was a market move for ACROSTIC who having opened at 5/1 started the 7/2fav. For those traders who make their money on the exchanges from market moves prior to the “off”, this was manna from heaven [£1,000 placed @ 6.10 and meant that it was possible to “lay-off” at 4.90 and secure a £245 profit – less commission – before the stalls opened]. ACROSTIC was held just off the pace, as expected, but could not reel in the all-the-way winner Fareer nor hold off the finishing burst of runner-up Rainbow Peak. With both those two entered in Group 1’s at Royal Ascot, this result could suggest that ACROSTIC’s effort was a fair one come mid-June.
