York Ebor Festival: Day 3 Tips and Odds

Sound And Silence wins at York's Ebor Meeting

Day 3 of the 2020 Ebor Meeting takes place on Friday, with the feature race being the Nunthorpe Stakes. Raced over the five-furlong distance, it’s a race for the speedballs and will be run at a cut-throat gallop. Battaash is a warm-order to be taking the contest, but faces a massive three-year-old challenge, including Art Power and A’Ali.

There are a pair of Group 2 races too, with the Gimcrack Stakes and Lonsdale Cup also providing some top-class action.

York Ebor Festival Day 3 Tips

The Lonsdale Cup kicks off the group action and ENIBHAAR is the one to beat. She was highly progressive last season, winning three Group 2 contests in rapid succession. Nearly breaking through at Group 1 level to end last season, she’s run well on both her starts this season. A return to fourteen furlongs saw her score in facile fashion at Goodwood last time and up to two miles, the sky remains the limit for this mare.

The Gimcrack is a six-furlong test for the two-year-olds and SEVEN BROTHERS has a great chance of extending his unbeaten record. Kevin Ryan’s colt is two from two, building on an Ayr win when toughing it out under a penalty over course and distance. He’s ground and tactically versatile, which makes him a straightforward ride, and there is plenty to like about his chances.

The feature contest is the Nunthorpe and it’s very difficult to oppose the all-conquering BATTAASH. The “Batmobile” has looked better than ever this season, winning both the King’s Stand and King George Qatar Stakes in facile fashion. The latter success came in record breaking time, and he could shatter one of his other records today back on the Knavesmire.
