Windhoek: Backed to score at York today.

Market Movers:


1:30 - Disegno - 11/2 from 13/2

Needs to improve on the formbook, but evidently thought one of Sir Michael Stoute's better juveniles.

2:05 - Muraaqaba - 13/8 from 9/4

Made a good impression to win on debut and strongly fancied to maintain unbeaten record.

3:15 - Watchable - 9/1 from 14/1

Tipped up by Ben Linfoot's Value Bet and again in the Racing Post. Richard Hughes a fascinating booking.

4:25 - Lord of the Dance - 12/1 from 20/1

Left his rivals for dead 12 months ago and capable of finding sudden improvement - which he'll need to.


2:55 - Windhoek - 9/4 from 7/2

Solid level of form this season and punters sticking with same team who took feature contest at track previous night.

4:05 - Gurkha Friend - 11/2 from 12/1

Fascinating to note support for this one in race sponsored by leading website.

4:40 - Grandorio - 4/1 from 11/2

Down in grade and looks the preferred one of stable's two representatives.


3:55 - Fast Track - 5/1 from 8/1

Strong support for this northern raider who shaped well last time out.

Today's Price Boosts:

Telescope - 3.50 Ascot

Mercury - 4.05 York

Windhoek - 2.55 York

Madrasa - 3.40 Newcastle

Munaaser - 5.05 Newmarket

Mister Bob - 7.35 Lingfield

Munfallet - 7.50 Salisbury

Celestial Fable - 2.15 Wexford

Traders' Tip:

Muthmir - 3.30 York

A strong pace on fast ground is what Muthmir requires and he gets that today on the Knavesmire with plenty of pace drawn middle to high he should be in a good stall in 12 judging by the sprint races last night. His latest run at Newcastle is strong form been just beaten by Tatlisu who went on to be just touched off in the Scottish Stewards' Cup with Kimberella over two lengths behind who went on to win impressively at Chester and renews rivalry with Muthmir on worse terms here today. A penalty is required to get Muthmir into the Stewards' Cup next Saturday so today is a big one for him and connections. Around 11/2 looks a fair price in what is a great renewal of the Sky Bet Dash.
