2:20 York Racing Tips (17th May)

York Racecourse
YORK 2.20
CARLTON FRANKIE 100--20/1 LINE OF REASON 98--11/1 EAST STREET REVUE 97--14/1 DARK SHOT 97--25/1 EDWARD LEWIS 96--12/1 EXCESSABLE 95--20/1 ROYAL BRAVE 95--14/1 WOW! What a race this looks, class 2 with 19 entrants over the minimum trip it should be fast and furious, there's 6 runners in the race that have led before and I've got very few negatives as expected at this level. There's not much between, Edward Lewis, Excessable and Royal Brave in 4th, and joint 5th positions, East Street Revue would be 3rd top using a 2016 time but didn't reach that level during 2017 so I would need to see some improvement before i could think about backing this one, Line Of Reason is in 2nd top position but I'm not sure stall 5 is ideal at this course as a high draw seems favoured. My top rated is CARLTON FRANKIE 20/1 who raced over good to firm going at Nottingham last year and led all the way for an emphatic victory, so is entitled to contest this class and at the price it has be done as an each way bet, it seems to like fast going and a level racing surface so this track should suit it and a repeat of that time would see it win this race, it is this horses first run of 2018 but has won twice before after a break but with such a large field my stakes will be kept on the low side.
