6f Sky Bet Lowther Stakes (Group 2) (Fillies) (Class 1) (2yo)
The favourite, Sandrine, carries a penalty for her Newmarket win and that makes this way more competitive. HELLO YOU has placed behind her the last twice and is far from the finished article as she pulls quite hard. She’s wearing a hood for the first time and, if she settles, she is going to improve and be very competitive so I reckon 8/1 is quite a big price. I’m also going to have another go on NAZANIN at a big price of 28/1 as she too looks like she’s got more talent than she’s shown so far, also racing keenly and a bit awkwardly to date. She ran really well at Ascot in a race where the pace collapsed and she did too much too soon. She might not be good enough but she was punted like a good horse on debut and has Group One entries for the rest of the season, so they must like her. This race is wide open if you can see past the favourite.
1pt win Hello You @8/1, 13:50 York, Thursday
1pt win Nazanin @28/1, 13:50 York, Thursday
