In the hope that MISTIROC (Best price 16-1) was ridden too aggressively at Hamilton last time and that race was a tune up for today’s event then the gelding is worth risking at a big price too. The five-year-old was fourth in the November Handicap last autumn and boasts one excellent run on the Knavesmire last summer when runner-up over 10 and a half furlongs. He could outrun his price with the excellent Gina Andrews on board.
Muwaary is a class act when fit and is unlikely he will lack for fitness given connections.
Although raised 9lb for that comprehensive win, the reassessment may not be enough to end her winning sequence as the daughter of Aqlaam has struck up a terrific association with David Probert whose figures aboard the filly read 4111. The rain at York shouldn’t inconvenience her chance either as there was cut in the ground when she won a Salisbury handicap on her reappearance and her stable excel with improving fillies of her type.
Dommersen looked a little errant in scoring at Wolverhampton but is progressing rapidly, while the blinkers could also iron out Chester Street who boasts ability but a lack of focus at present.

Willytheconqueror has already shown his affinity for this track and may emerge best of the bigger-priced horses.
