It’s been a good period for our ‘notebookers’ as we reach probably the last few weeks of the season with horses at the top of their form.

York Ebor Preview….

Pallasator landed an Ascot handicap in July and has been solid to the view that it should be a virtual formality? Trained by ‘middle-to-long distance expert’ Sir Mark Prescott, he has steadily improved with each run and rated at 123 by Timeform looks a group horse in a handicap?

However, in a 20+ runner handicap at 6/1 hardly represents value where we can get 4 paid places?

Looking to our ‘notebookers’, The Ebor has probably been on one of our Mighty Yar’s targeted races and is prominent in the betting but with good each-way appeal against this year’s 3/1 ante-post favourite Pallastator.

Mighty Yar is trained by last years winning trainer Lady Cecil to record another popular Ebor success with the lightly raced four-year-old.

He has a similar profile to last year’s winner, Tiger Cliff, and his form this year points to a big run this Saturday. Is season didn’t start well when well beaten in a listed race at Nottingham. However, he won a big handicap at Newmarket with one of our ‘twelve to follow’ , Van Percy in his wake.

The way he has been coached suggests connections have been targeting Mighty Yar for a race similar to the Ebor and now sneaking in at the bottom of the handicap, any ante-post bets are looking a shrewd investment.

Marco Botti’s De Rigueur has aton of form that also targets him as an Ebor candidate. He beat Pallasator in the Old Newton Cup last time out and his ‘idling’ in front tactic,  has not hit too hard by the handicapper.

Previously he had beaten a good field of handicappers, including Mighty Yar, at Newmarket  but the lack of pace in the race makes it questionable form?

Irish entries Eye of The Storm and Pale Mimosa warrant a mention with strong Group form in staying races in Ireland, however they don’t look particularly well in at the weights because of that group form?

Saeed bin Suroor’s, Wadi Al Hattawi went straight into our notebook when winning here first time out this season. 7th at Royal Ascot, this lightly raced sort is another for each-way considerations?

Pallasator is being backed as though this is a formality but we look for the value in Mighty Yar or even Wadi Al Hattawi to come up trumps?

Suggested Bets:

Mighty Yar in the Ebor at a best priced 10/1 with Betfair

Wadi Al Hattawi in the Ebor at a best priced 12/1 with Betfair
