98-1 Sunday double for trainer who is +£59.75 at York so far in 2021

2021 has been a huge year for Andrew Balding. About to pass his best winners tally for a calendar year despite only being in early September, Balding should be well into triple figures when all is said and done. York is one track that Balding has had great success so far this year.

A 30% strike rate and a level stakes profit of +£59.75 are both notable and they make his two runners there on Sunday of huge interest, forming a 98/1 double with the pair. There are also cards at Fontwell and Perth for fans of jump racing on Sunday afternoon with horse racing tips for all three on the site.

3.15 York – Biowavego Garrowby Stakes

Just four runners here and Fivethousandtoone is the only one who tends to race right on the speed. That is often a big plus on the sprint track here and he should be able to dictate things to his liking.

It’s fair to say that this season has not seen him build on a smart juvenile campaign when runner-up in a Group 2. Heavy ground and two runs at seven furlongs, however, have probably not been ideal for him so it is probably harsh to judge him off that bare form.

This should suit him much better and a big jump forward on that 2021 form could well happen and that coupled with a race run to suit him with no pressure on the lead should see him run a big race.

4.50 York – Hanson Springs Handicap

York suits Pivoine well. He has won two of his four starts here, finishing fourth earlier this season in a race where the gap he was looking to go through closed on him. He won on his very next start at Haydock under this jockey, just two pounds higher here.

Oisin Murphy has ridden him the last twice but for some reason that combination don’t seem to work. 0/7 together, he should appreciate having Silvestre De Sousa back in the plate here. His two prior wins are both in the top three RPR’s of his career so the return to this track should see him back in a far more positive light.
