1.45 Awake My Soul 10/1 from 14/1

Interesting to see he's the choice of stable jockey Daniel Tudhope, given the yard also has Grandorio in the race, and the drop back to 10 furlongs looks in his favour.

2.15 Aetna 9/1 from 12/1

Disappointed favourite-backers at Beverley last time but the fact she was sent off 9/4 in a 12-runner handicap that day shows how well she's regarded.

3.15 Tropics 10/1 from 14/1

Has had a couple of spins to sharpen him up for this and enjoyed one of his best days in the Sky Bet Dash here last summer.

5.00 Gabrials Star 2/1 from 5/2

Described by Richard Fahey as his nap of the meeting and it's not hard to see why as he escapes a penalty for his easy Chester success in an apprentice riders' race. Ryan Moore on today and the punters aren't holding back. 

Price Boosts:

2.45 York - Cambridge

7.25 Chepstow - Dream Catcher

7.15 Naas - Dazzling

8.05 Perth - Killeenmore

4.35 Uttoxeter - Santo Thomas

2.05 Worcester - One Lucky Lady

Traders' Tip:

3.50 York - That Is The Spirit

The bet of the day looks to be That Is The Spirit in the 3.50 York. After bolting up on debut at Doncaster he looks a group horse in waiting and, around the 4/1 mark, can take this en route to better things later in the season.
