It’s already been a top midweek at York but it’s not over just yet as we head into the final day this Saturday.
The Sky Bet Ebor Handicap is the day’s feature and despite another ultra-competitive field there are several key trends help out.
Did you know? Sixteen of the last seventeen Ebor Handicap winners carried 9st-4lbs or less and were aged six or younger. While it might pay to look for horses draw high, as fourteen of the last seventeen winners came from a double-figure stall.
Away from York, there is also afternoon action at Newmarket, Goodwood, Chelmsford and Cartmel, plus the evening racing fix is supplied by Windsor and Redcar.
We’ll be highlighting our TOP FOUR trends to look for from the ITV Racing and putting them in a big-priced ‘Cracker Acca’ – plus, giving you the ‘best of the rest’ trends from around the other tracks this Saturday.
Plus – don’t forget, you can also get more help finding the winner for all this Saturday’s races on our Free Horse Racing Tips page.

3.10 Chelmsford: We’ll be hoping for a royal winner here as the Queen’s CALCULATION could be the answer. A winner of his last two races in taking fashion and with just six career runs should have more to come. The Sir Michael Stoute yard also have a decent 22% record with their runners at the track.
3.20 Newmarket: The Mark Johnston camp have made this race their own in recent years – winning the last three runnings. THEMAXWECAN, who won well at Ascot last time out will be looking to add to that fabulous record.
4.45 York: Frankie Dettori and John Gosden team-up here with FOREST OF DEAN. This three-year-old has won three of his last five races, including an impressive victory at Glorious Goodwood last time out. Up 7lbs for that, but looks to have more to give. The Gosden yard also have a cracking 32% record with their three-year-olds at York.
6.50 Windsor: The David Simcock-trained DESERT ENCOUNTER won this race last year and looks to have had it as a target this year too. Will be spot-on after a nice win at Goodwood last time and, as well as being the top-rated in the line-up, is also two-from-two at Windsor.
