Saturday Preview. (York, Sandown, Chester & Leicester)

Saturday 16th June 2018

All my views on this Saturday’s action on the level at York, Sandown, Chester and Leicester. Again a slightly below par day’s action for a Saturday with Royal Ascot next week however there’s still some decent contests to look forward too.



1.50 – Mukhayyam (6/1) (E/W) (Jockey: Miss E Easterby – Trainer: T D Easterby)

(Progressed with every run this season so far and this looks to of been the target, runner up last year and could well be bang there again this time around.)


2.25 – Spanish City (11/4) (Jockey: R L Moore – Trainer: R Varian)

(Lightly raced sort who appears to be appreciate fast ground, won well at Doncaster the last day where the form has since been franked, Ryan Moore booked suggest a bold showing is likely.)


3.00 – Weekender (11/4) (Jockey: L Dettori – Trainer: J H M Gosden)

(Slighlty disapointing at Sandown last time but still remains progressive for top connections, could well bounce back here with Dettori once again on board.)


3.35 – Beshaayir (7/1) (E/W) (Jockey: J Fanning – Trainer: W J Haggas)

(Missed the break the last day and was ultimately disappointing but still remains with a lot of potential, has several Group 1 entries to her name so is certainly well thought of by connections. Bang in form yard have plenty of winners around here and she is clearly a player in this.)



3.15 – Via Serendipity (7/2) (Jockey: F Berry – Trainer: S C Williams)

(Quick turn around from second placed effort in a decent contest at Chelmsford in Midweek. Likely to give another bold showing here as has form over some of these.)


3.50 – Flavius Tituis (13/8) (Jockey: A Atzeni – Trainer: R Varian)

(Looks a typically progressive type for top yard and has been raised a sizeable ten pounds for win the last day in a lesser contest. Could well be better than this Grade still and could take some beating.)



2.40 – Istanbul Sultan (7/2) (Jockey: M Harley – Trainer: W J Haggas)

(Steps up in trip here but brings solid form to the table, well drawn and likely to give a bold showing. Austrian School looks the one they all need to beat but concedes a fair amount of weight all round.)


3.45 – Midsummer Knight (3/1) (Jockey: H Turner – Trainer: K R Burke)

(Very consistent sort that has a decent draw here, likely to go very close if breaking well and represents a yard that are bang in form.)



7.40 – Shaheen (11/2) (E/W) (Jockey: J Hart – Trainer: J J Quinn)

(Quick turn around here following a win at Pontefract midweek, however that was a higher grade than this and he won it well. If coming here in the same form he could well go close again.)


NAP: Midsummer Knight (3.45)

NB: Spanish City (2.25)
