Couple of decent runs from yesterdays 2 with Brae Hill and Fitz Flyer finishing 4th & 5th. Both look sure to win soon of their current marks.
York 4:25 NON RUNNER
Barren Broke was one I fancied at a big price for the Lincoln this year but he was withdrawn on the day. He has had a poor run since, but has a decent bit of York form and I’m hopeful that he is ready for a big run today. He has form on soft and is down to a career low mark. He is tried in a hood tomorrow. He’s worth a risk tomorrow at 18/1.

Vendor has been a disappointing horse this year after a very decent 4yo campaign, but he was possibly not suited by the soft ground he encountered, and did appear to be running better last time until unseating 3 out on better ground. He has looked as if the step up in trip here will suit. He is probably the most unexposed in the field and this race should really suit him. 11/1 looks decent value.

This race has a complete different look about it now that Cavalryman is gone, as I couldn’t see him beat here. I’m quite surprised the Royal Diamond is the price he is here and I wouldn’t think there is a lot between most of these on form. He ran a very decent race over a trip too short in the Sheema Classis this year and if he can travel as well here as he did there I think he will have a great chance here. 11/1 seems a good few points too big not the the fav has gone.

It’s a difficult race where I’m having difficulty making a case for anything. Spanish Duke is possibly decent value give that he should appreciate the step up in trip and is in here on a very low mark. He looked to be heading the right way on his seasonal re-appearance but was poor next time at Epson. This race should well be more suitable, and give that the favourite looks too short here, 16/1 looks a bit of value for him to get back to form of a nice racing weight.
