We pick out an eyecatcher from York while there are gallops pointers with an eye on the Ebor Festival too.

Wednesday's Eyecatcher

Roossey could only finish fourth behind the well-treated Felix Leiter in the six-furlong nursery at York but there should be a decent prize in William Haggas' juvenile.

Arriving on the Knavesmire after winning a Ripon maiden, the Acclamation colt was well fancied to strike for his Yorkshire-born trainer but was out of luck when needing to be switched out of trouble with a furlong left.

Roossey did pretty well in the end to end up where he did, and Haggas ought to be able to find him another suitable target over this trip before the summer is out.

Pointers From The Gallops

Sir Michael Stoute worked his horses at separate venues, utilizing the Round Gallop and the Trial Ground in Newmarket.

GOTHIC opened his seasonal account at Leicester and he looked in good order coming up in single file with ENOBLED and FESTIVAL THEATRE on the Round facility.

RADIATOR hasn't found her niche so far this year, but her work with ROYAL SEAL was encouraging.

RYE HOUSE enjoyed his spin with ABSEIL, with no questions asked of either.

SAVANT is in good form and showed that by pulling two lengths clear of MATRAVERS.

A group of juveniles also worked, with MUSTARD (Ryan Moore) almost inseparable from SWAHEEH (Shane Kelly), STRAVAGANTE and ZIGIANA.

Several horses bound for York worked together on the Trial Ground.

This was not demanding work, with York-bound trio MUNAASER, BOLD SNIPER and STOMACHION cantering for a quarter before the tempo raised slightly from the two to the six.

Bold Sniper appears to be in very good heart ahead of his tilt at the Ebor. FREEMASON also worked with this group.

A group of juveniles engaged in light work with DARTMOUTH shading CAPEL PATH and DISSOLUTION.
