GYTO Notebook Double for Sunday 23rd June

Pontefract 2.00 Selection (13/8)

I know Violet Love has won her last two and she will likely prove popular in her hat-trick bid but she has to give away quite a bit of weight and I liked that debut run from SELECTION to finish second at Hamilton. 

She was beaten just a length at the line and the winner Liberalised looks a smart type for Karl Burke. She will know a lot more this time around and I think it represents a good opportunity for her to make the breakthrough now.

Violet Love is probably still the danger despite giving the weight away as she knows how to win. Komorkis was a place behind the selection when third at Hamilton on debut so if improving is another one who has a squeak as well.

Ffos Las 3.40 Zoran (9/4)

The way ZORAN made all at Kempton last time was impressive and back on turf off just a 4lb higher mark if he is in the same form then he really should be winning this. 

There is a bit of pace on but I don’t think he’ll have any issue getting the lead and if he gets dictating then he should have an obvious chance to follow up. Charlie Bishop takes over from Oisin Murphy but is more than capable of giving him a good ride so no concerns there.

Clan Chieftain finished last on reappearance but left that behind to finish second at Salisbury last month. If he builds on that again then he looks the biggest danger. Navarre Express is still fairly unexposed and is another one in with a chance.

Value Tip for Sunday 23rd June

Pontefract 4.00 Dancing In Paris (11/4)

With just the five rivals to beat this looks a great chance for DANCING IN PARIS to get back in the winners enclosure. He impressed winning readily by three lengths at York last month and shaped as though he was still in good form when beaten a length at Goodwood last time. 

The winner Miller Spirit has gone in again since to frank the form and even the third Genesius has run well chasing home Kardia at Ripon so it is stacking up. He is off the same mark and must have a great chance.

Kingman filly Al Anoud went down just half a length on handicap debut at Windsor and won both starts as a 3yo before that so could threaten if improving again. Knightswood has run well the last twice and is another one capable of getting competitive.
