Welcome to Arseonlineracing… The 100% Independent website with NO affiliate links…

This week flat racing heads to York for the Dante meeting & with a sprinkle of Newmarket before we head to Newbury for the Lockinge  Stakes & the French Guineas! A busy week…

Between the 4 of us, we will blog for 3 days each with a day off & see whose still standing on Sunday! So to kick us off… Charlie, Jamie & Rich!

The going at York is… Good, Good to Soft in Places

Charlie –

3.10 – Tatersalls Musidora Stakes (Grade 3) for Fillies over 1m 2f 55y

Selection – Noon Star

3 year old filly out of Galileo and Midday, has had 3 career starts so far beginning with a 5 and 1/2 length 3rd place to Lady Hayes when making debut at Salisbury on the 3rd September 2020 over 7f. Was sent to Nottingham for next race on the 14th October 2020 and won when beating Ocean Road by 3 and 1/4 lengths over 1m 75y. Wasn’t seen again until making reappearance on the 25th April this year at Wetherby over 1m 2f, Noon Star won again beating Loving Dream by 2 and 1/2 lengths with Franklet a further 6 lengths adrift in 3rd. If showing same attitude as last 2 runs should take this race at the expense of main threat Teona who is by Sea The Stars and has finished 2nd and 1st in both starts so far although they came at Newcastle on the all-weather.

4.15 – British Stalion Studs EBF Novice Stakes over 5f

Selection – Second Wind

2 year old Colt Out of Kodiac and Princess Janie, has had just the one run so far and it was a victorious one at Yarmouth on the 20th April this year, when beating Robasta by 3/4 of a length over 5f and 42y. Carries a penalty for todays race and has Tom Marquand on board this time around and another bold display can’t be ruled out, biggest dangers come in the shape of debutants Project Dante who is out of Showcasing and Jadhlaan who is out of Dark Angel.

Jamie –

2:40 – Duke Of York Stakes (G2) – Selection: Oxted

This looks to be a strong renewal of this top 6F sprint. You could make a case for 5 or 6 horses in here who could all win on a going day. With a couple of runs under his belt already I am going to side with July Cup Champion, Oxted. Roger Teal’s charge hasn’t reached that level in three subsequent starts but he looks to still have it in him to take a race of this magnitude. Things didn’t go his way out in Saudi Arabia in February when he didn’t quite take to the dirt. Last time out in the Abernant at Newmarket he ran well but just couldn’t hold off the late charge of Summerghand. I expect Oxted to come on for that run and he can confirm the form with Emaraaty Ana. The ground is okay for Oxted too. Big chance.

3:40 – Sky Bet Handicap – Selection: Huddleton Mac

A nice little 7F Handicap to close out the coverage on ITV Racing today. Several more exposed horses clash with the likes of Huddleton Mac & Rifleman who are much less exposed, I am opting for the former. I base my selection on the fact that this is a big drop in class from G3 level to a Class 3 Handicap. That G3 race he ran in was the Greenham Stakes at Newbury, so he was keeping good company that day. Although he ran too free and was well beaten at the line but connections must think quite a lot of this horse to run him in that kind of race. With that reappearance under his belt he should be hard to beat today on ground he likes. Hopefully he will settle much better today. At a big price Bowman could nick a place.

Rich –

2.40 Handicap – Class 2 – 4yp Plus – 1m 3f 188yds…
Throne Hall – Kingman X Appearance 4yo gelding.
5 career runs, 2 wins & 3 places.
Runner up in this class on 3rd start to Ilaraab over 1m 2f at Beverley by a neck on final start of 2020. Started 2021 with a win at Doncaster in a Class 3, 1m 2f Handicap in March before stepping up to this trip at Thirsk, when finishing a 3/4’s of a length runner up on April 17th. Up in Class – Each Way

4.15 Novice Stakes – Class 3 – 2yo Only – 5f….
Jadhlaan – Dark Angel X Muteela Colt.
Debut for this Dark Angel colt for Mark Johnston, who trained the Dam to a pair of Listed races over 7f & 1m. He always has his horses ready to go & are notoriously tough to beat…

That’s everything for you today folks, see you tomorrow… Thanks for popping by we really appreciate your support..
Stay Safe.
Gamble Responsibly.

All the Best – The Arseonlineracing Team
