Ebor Festival

John Gosden’s superstar fully, Enable, was undoubtedly the star of the show on day two of the Ebor festival. The five-year old romped to victory in the Darley Yorkshire Oaks to claim yet another Group 1 win. The Queen of Horse Racing was probably seen on a British racecourse for the last time and could bow out this autumn if she claims a record breaking third Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. Jockey, Frankie Dettori, could not hide his emotion after passing the winning post and the jockey has now chalked up an incredible fourteen Group 1 wins of his own this year. 

On to day three and we have another six top-class races taking place at York, the day’s feature race is the Group 1 Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes. Here at Compare Betting Sites we’ll take a look at the day’s races, offering tips and odds via our comprehensive list of betting partners. 

1:55 – Sky Bet Handicap 

We start Friday with a wide-open handicap that will be contested by 20 runners. Enable’s dream team of John Gosden and Frankie Dettori head the betting with Corelli. The four-year old looked far more comfortable back over 1m 4f last time out after failing to see out the 2m 6f trip in the Queen Alexandra at Royal Ascot. Now up 3lbs but will be at ease over 1m 3f. Corelli is available at 13/2 with several bookmakers but as William Hill are paying out for a massive seven places, you may opt for the 11/2 on offer here if you’re going each-way. 

Jedd O’Keefe’s stable are in red-hot form at the moment and enter Jazeel in this handicap. With Jamie Spencer on board and an encouraging second at Goodwood last time out, this 13/2 chance could prove excellent value. 

If you want to find something at a bigger price then you may want to consider Western Duke. Ian Williams’ five-year old won over this distance at Ascot just four weeks ago. He was staying on at Ascot to win by a length so should make light work of the 4lbs rise for that win,  

2:25 - Weatherbys Hamilton Lonsdale Cup Stakes (Group 2) 

The Gosden/Dettori team enter another much-fancied favourite in the day’s second race as Stradivarius chases a ninth successive win. In the past few years Stradivarius has been the country’s dominant stayer, winning three Goodwood Cups and two Ascot Gold Cups. Stradivarius won this race last year and connections believe he’ll be even better this year. Stradivarius is odds-on at 4/9 with most bookmakers however you can back him with William Hill or Unibet at 1/2. 

The biggest threat to Stradivarius’ hopes of back-to-back wins in this race is likely to come from Dee Ex Bee. Mark Johnston’s popular colt has finished behind Stradivarius in each of his last two runs but a 3lbs swing in the race offers connections some optimism. Most bookmakers are offering 7/2 for Dee Ex Bee to win.  

3:00 - Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Gimcrack Stakes (Group 2) 

Despite lining up against 13 rivals, Threat will go off at an incredibly short price in the day’s third race. Richard Hannon’s two-year old has only had three previous runs, winning a Class 3 race at Newmarket on debut before two consecutive second-placed finishes in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot and Richmond Stakes at Goodwood. Betfred’s 15/8 is the best price available on Threat but there could be value elsewhere in this 14-strong field. Check place terms before backing any each-way picks in this with many bookmakers paying for four places whilst others pay for three only. 

Abstemious is currently 12/1 with most bookmakers but will almost certainly go off shorter than that. Trainer, Kevin Ryan, has won this race four times, including last year and Abstemious looks the pick of his three runners this time around. Both previous runs were over C&D, including a five-length win last time out. Under jockey, Jamie Spencer, Abstemious could run a big race. 

3:35 - Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes (Group 1) 

Ten Sovereigns is a deserved favourite in the day’s feature race after a dominant run in the July Cup at Newmarket. Aidan O’Brien’s three-year old has looked impressive over 6f and is currently unbeaten over the distance however, this race will be a lot quicker over the shorter minimum 5f distance. Having not run over 5f before, Unibet’s 13/8 on a Ten Sovereigns win looks rather short. 

Battaash has plenty of experience over 5f and was last seen when winning the King George at Goodwood earlier this month with relative ease. Has failed to deliver in this race in each of the past two years but held the other main challenger, Mabs Cross, at Royal Ascot. If the Battaash we’ve already seen this year at Goodwood, Ascot and Haydock was to turn up then at 5/2 he could prove a snip. 

4:15 - British Stallion Studs EBF Convivial Maiden Stakes (Plus 10) 

The bookies make Molatham a 6/4 favourite here having impressed on his debut at Ascot last month. That run looks all the more impressive given the dominant performance we saw from race winner, Mums Tipple in the Premier Yearling Stakes here on Thursday. 

This maiden is an intriguing race with so many first-timers involved. Keep an eye out for place terms ahead of this race, Betfair, Boylesports and Paddy Power are paying out for four places whilst most other top bookmakers pay for three only. 

Western Hero looks to have the best chance of the newcomers and is available at 14/1 with most bookmakers. Kevin Ryan’s colt is half-brother to seven race winners and with Danny Tudhope in the saddle he could be worth a market check throughout the day. 

4:50 - Nationwide Accident Repair Services Handicap 

Edaraat is the 9/2 favourite to win the day’s final contest however, we are opting for something slightly bigger here. Mark Johnston’s Dark Vision is a 10/1 shot to win this but with all the major players drawn wide, this three-year old could fulfill the promise shown when winning the Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood last year. 

Dark Vision finished right down the field at Goodwood this year having struggled to overcome a wide draw of his own. 1-1 at York and was far more impressive in penultimate race at Newmarket. Albeit that run was over 1m 2f, as opposed to the 7f he’ll run over here. James Doyle takes the saddle.
