Richard Fahey guides us through his team for Saturday and Sunday

Richard Fahey - busy weekend in store

Seven runners for our columnist at York on Sunday - check out his horse-by-horse guide to them all.

12:15 York – Gorytus

He’s quite nice, a son of Footstepsinthesand and a big horse. He goes OK at home and while I’d be a little surprised if he won first time out, he’ll definitely be winning races at some stage.

12:15 York – Seasett

Similar comments apply to him really too. He shows enough at home to tell me he’ll be winning races but whether he’s ready to do so first time I’m not sure. He's by Wootton Bassett and can go well if the penny drops.

1.20 York– Galeophobia

We like this horse and were disappointed with him on debut at Hamilton but it was his first run and it can happen. It will be interesting to see how he goes here as he works well at home and we still think he’s nice.

1.55 York – Ventura Rebel

He ran as though ready to go up to seven furlongs when third in the Commonwealth Cup last time and we’re happy to do that here. It was a good run at Ascot, in fact a blinder, and he’s a horse who still hasn’t had a lot of racing and is on the upgrade. It’s a tight race but if we stay we’ll go close.

2.30 York – Mighty Spirit

I thought she ran an absolute cracker when fifth behind Art Power at Royal Ascot. I was delighted with her. She wears her heart on her sleeve and tries very hard. She’ll run her race – she always does.

3.35 York – Hot Team

He’s had two runs for us and now and we don’t have the key to him at the moment but hopefully we’ll work him out. I’m just a little worried the ground might get too quick for him and we’ll monitor that.

3.35 York – Toronado Queen

She’s been very disappointing on her last few runs and this is a big day for her. We need to find out where we are – and whether we drop in grade or even ponder retirement. She’s in very good form and we’ve no excuses from what we’re seeing at home.
