Ebor day is here and what a week its been on the Knavesmire.
Chump of the week has to be Frankie Dettori who started celebrating Lady Aurelia winning the Nunthorpe before the result of the photo finish.
Frankie was busy shushing the crowd, waving and shaking hands with other jockeys whilst many in the crowd who were on the well backed favourite seeing Frankie began to celebrate too and make their way to collect.
The only slight issue for Frankie was the horse had actually got beat by Marsha and cue much embarrassment for the cheeky chappy as he made his way to the runners up enclosure. This embarrassing scene rather overshadowed a brilliant performance from Marsha and Luke Morris to win the race and mark her down as a very special filly.
Prescott was convinced she would run a big race back on better ground and this must be one of his greatest moments in racing and for Frankie well we all make mistakes but I suspect he will wait from now on when he is in a tight finish.
Today the meeting kicks off with a cracker in the shape of the Group 3 Strensall Stakes and Mondialiste can keep the prize in Yorkshire for that man O’Meara. Mondialiste has taken time to warm up this season but ran a screamer here last time to be second. This is a race the horse has triumphed in before and I’m sure its been the plan all year to return.
O’Meara has had a quiet spell but had an excellent winner in Lincoln Rocks on Thursday and there are very strong vibes that Mondialiste will add to his brilliant record on the Knavesmire. The 3/1 with Coral looks very tasty.
Lets have a great last day and if Mondialiste is in a photo finish… well you know the rest!
Back next Saturday,
