3:40 York - Carlton Frankie 8/1 (26th May)

Horse racing tips from York
YORK 3.40
A huge field of 19 but only 4 natural front runners, Boundsy is my 3rd top rated and a versatile sort with its tactics and races as though a stiffer track or longer trip would suit it better, Batten The Hatches is a front runner and my 2nd top rated drawn in stall 4 while my top rated horse is CARLTON FRANKIE 8/1 another front runner and drawn next door in stall 3, it led last time out at this c/d distance on its 1st run of the year and only got beaten three quarters of a length so hopefully its fit enough today to hold for the win this time out.

Carlton Frankie 8/1 9th
A cracking Group 2 dash and I've got it very tight at the top of my ratings, so on that point I have to go with BATTASH 4-5 as my joint top rated who is set to carry a 5lb Group 1 penalty, it will be its 1st run of the year but it has won 1st time out for the last 2 years so I'm hoping it can do so again here, my other joint top rated is MAB'S CROSS 16/1, a nice each way price, who is an improving type and entered in future Group 1 sprints so I will go with the 2 bets in this race to show a profit whichever one does the business.

Battash 10/11 1st
Mab's Cross 16/1 4th
With half the field being 3 year olds makes this race too tricky to be confident with, I'm not sure exactly how good 5 of the 3 year olds are and could be dangerous, if I went on form/times already achieved then ALL OUT 10/1 would be the selection and it recorded its best time last time out at Newbury a week ago so its in fine fettle which is a positive but would need to be good value for me to have a bet or I could well leave the race alone.

PS: I might go with a small each way bet now I've seen the betting.

All Out 10/1 Unp
There's 15 runners but only 2 known front runners and Dandy Highwayman is one of them and 5th top rated so could be dangerous with an easy lead but may set the race up for others who finish strongly, *ATHOLLBLAIR BOY 5/1 is 2nd top who needs good to firm going to show its best and is a hold up type, MESHARDAL 14/1 comes out top and likes to track the leaders I will go with 2 small bets.

* NR - Athollblair Boy
Meshardal 20/1 4th
