Good to be back after two very enjoyable days at York ,with the main highlight for me being Sea Moon winning the Great Voltiguer on the Wednesday in great style by 8 lenghs at incredible SP of 11-2 .
I was more than happy to take 7-2 best price guarantee the return of 11-2 SP was huge bonus with over £913 profit.Also good to see Twice Over win another group one race beating his more fancied stable companion in thrilling race .
Moving on to Saturday's racing the final day of York Ebor meeting ,going concentrate on group two Lonsdale Cup at 3.05
2 MILES GROUP TWO LONSDALE CUP YORK 3.05
HARRIS TWEED : Consistent group race performer been in good form this season finishing placed on all three starts .Ran good second last time at Glorious Goodwood in the group three Glorious stakes over 1 mile 4 furlongs just getting touched of by Drunken Sailor in close finish.Has to prove his stamina over 2 miles ,though wasn't stopping when winning over 1 mile 6 at Newmarket last season.
VERDICT :Interesting group two contest with three main contenders Opinion poll ,Blue Bajan & Harris Tweed.
Last years winner Opinion Poll should go well after winning last time in Goodwood Cup and will be suited by easy ground conditions ,though this looks tougher race than last year.
Blue Bajan looks closely matched with Opinion Poll on Goodwood Cup running and has 3lb pull in the weights .Should be thereabouts with conditions likely to suit.
HARRIS TWEED has some very decent form over shorter trips this season and shapes as though he should stay this longer trip .Trainer William Haggas has been in excellent form this month. At around 4-1 looks very fair value.
