We're Wild about the Fillies

York's Ebor meeting's 2nd day is Ladies Day & is a showcase for the best British female equine talent with 3 races at Listed or higher level restricted to fillies & mares - we've got picks for 2 of the 3.

The feature race is the 1 mile 4 furlongs Yorkshire Oaks & last year's race was a cracker with the exceptional Midday beating the best of the 3 year olds Snow Fairy with a great performance. Neither the winner or runner up take part in this renewal with Midday rerouted to the Juddmonte, finishing a respectable 2nd, & Snow Fairy withdrawn because of the ground & will now run in France on Sunday. This makes our job easier because of the remaining older horses none have the form in the book to be winning a Group 1, Crystal Capella is near the top of the market & is a 3-time Group 2 winner at this distance but at 6 yeras old is not going to be improving & looks held at this level. Vita Nova was unlucky when beaten by the useful Gertrude Bell last time as rider Tom Queally lost his irons when looking to challenge, she's lightly raced & of the older horses she's most likely to improve & can offer a challenge.

The 3 year olds bring top form, none more so than Godolphin's Blue Bunting winner of the 1000 Guineas & Irish Oaks. Always thought of as a middle distance horse it was a bonus for her to win the 1st Fillies Classic & a big disappointment to only finish 4th (should have been 3rd but Dettori dropped his hands) in the English Oaks, she showed that form to be all wrong when triumphing in similar conditions to today in the Irish equivalent. Blue Bunting only beat the tough Banimpire by a short head that day & had Wonder of Wonders back in 3rd, she can uphold that form & at a price of 11/4 is crying out to be backed as the only Group 1 winner in the field. Banimpire has run 9 times already this season, winning 6, & will be a tough competitor but needs to bring more if going to win. Meanwhile Wonder of Wonders has a big reputation but from what we've seen on the track again looks slightly below winning at this level at this time, Aidan O'Brien has had a poor start also with red hot favourite Await The Dawn comprehensively beaten (likebuyingmoney tipped to lay for a place) & other runners performing poorly, she should be avoided.

The 4.15 mile & a half Listed race shouldn't take much working out with one potential star taking on some reasonable sorts. Wild Coco disappointed at Goodwood last time out but the ground was completely against her, she is a German bred (by superstar sire Shirocco) & needs cut in the ground to shopw her best, as shown when cheekily beating the very useful Meeznah on only her 3rd start. Wild Coco is trained by the best man to handle fillies, Henry Cecil & should be able to stamp her authority on this field. She is open to all sorts of improvement & can be competing in & maybe winning Group 1 races this time next year. She's as short as 13/8 with SkyBet so make the most of the 2/1 available with Paddy Power & Coral & prepare to see your money trebled.

York 3.40 - Blue Bunting at 11/4 (general)
York 4.15 - Wild Coco at 2/1 with Paddy Power & Coral
