Racing UK's Tom Stanley gives us his picks from Saturday's Races.
Experto Crede is well worth a bet at York. He's lightly raced and was thought good enough to be sent off at 9/1 for the July Stakes last year having won his maiden. He's not exactly chucked in on the bare form of that success but a mile could well bring out the best in him and he didn't have the race run to suit last time on reappearance over 7. Well drawn to ensure he doesn't get too far back, Antonio Fresu is back on top for the first time since that debut win and he's a nice price for all it's a very open race.
Noble Peace certainly looks worth chancing at Goodwood. He went very close at the track on debut and had some solid form last year, notably in behind Mick Channon's Kassia, who ran well at Royal Ascot and looks a filly to improve this term. 3lb higher now, he has shaped for a step up in trip in the majority of runs over 6 furlongs and got that last time when winning over 7 at Lingfield. His jockey said that day that this trip on turf may stretch him but this track should be fine and he's well drawn. He'll be ridden patiently enough but there is pace on and he has a great chance if getting the breaks. Yard form is a niggling concern but he's worth supporting at the prices.
One more play in the form of Arctic Feeling at York. He's a course and distance winner who handles most ground, though the rain around would be no bad thing to take the firm out of the going description. We saw at the Dante meeting that a low draw was a positive on the straight course and he comes out of 7 here. He'll be helped by pace in 5 and 2 and should have this run to suit. He's been eased 1lb since running well over course and distance last time and easier ground with a stronger pace will help his cause. I'm not saying he's the best treated horse in the race - he's not - but he is likely the right side and has plenty in his favour.
