Thursday 22nd August Lowther Stakes Bet

Day two of York Ebor meeting with the two feature races being group one Yorkshire Oaks over 12 furlongs and group two Lowther stakes over 6 furlongs for 2 year old fillies .

Going concentrate on group two Lowther stakes at 2.30 on ground described as good/firm .

9 runners declared for group two Lowther stakes over 6 furlongs for two year old fillies .This looks decent contest with two main contenders being .Lucky Kristale & J Wonder .

LUCKY KRISTALE :Won 3 times from four starts .Good winner last time of group two Duchess Of Cambridge stakes at Newmarket beating the useful Rizeena by 2.5 lenghs .Went off 20-1 shot that day ,though there looked no fluke by that victory .Should go well with ideal conditions .

J WONDER :Unbeaten after 2 starts winning at Newbury & Newmarket .Won in good style last time in 6 furlong nursery handicap at Newmarket beating Midnite Angel off mark 79 .That form has been boosted with Midnite Angel finishing 2nd in group 3 Sweet Solera Stakes at Newmarket last time .Looks open to plenty improvement after two starts .

VERDICT : J Wonder has to be respected after winning both starts ,though that last win did only come off mark 79 and will need to show a lot of improvement to win this group two contest .Odds around 5-2 look too short .

LUCKY KRISTALE IS 3LB clear on official handicap ratings and looks the one to beat here after winning in good style last time in similar group two contest .I was expecting lot shorter price here around 7-4 / 2-1,though the 3-1 has now gone. 11-4 still looks good value .
