Richard Fahey's horse-by-horse guide to his team for the final day of York's Dante Festival.

Maggies Angel is our first runner at York on Friday in the Langleys Solicitors British EBF Marygate Fillies' Stakes.

The form of her maiden at Ripon hasn't worked out well but all they can do is win and she absolutely trotted up. This is a great race to be involved in but any one of seven or eight could win it.

I'm a little worrie d about the going for Shypen in the Irish EBF Frank Whittle Partnership Fillies' Handicap, she doesn't have any form on it. It's very frustrating as on quick ground I'd have given her a big chance.

We're double handed in the Yorkshire Equine Practice Handicap. Boundsy ran well on his reappearance at Nottingham and has come out of it well. The ground won't bother him either.

It is a bit of a concern for Megan Lilly who I thought ran ok at Chester last week. She just half missed a beat at the start that day but still finished third and is in good form if handling the surface.

We also run two in the closing 7IM Supports Cystic Fibrosis Care Handicap. We've had discussions over whether Lord Commander is going to stay the trip but we'll find out here and he's in good order.

Sue's Angel can be very funny in the stalls but the step up to a mile-and-a-half here is going to really suit her. I'd love her to run a big race for her owner and she is one who won't mind the ground.
