It’s the second day of the June meeting and the weather forecast… isn’t that bad.

After the downpours the official going for today’s Macmillan Charity Raceday is good to soft, conditions which are tricky for tipsters. Talking of which, over to our very own Dick Turpin…

The Pavers Foundation Catherine Memorial Sprint (3.35) attracts a very high class field of the country’s best three-year-old speed machines, Turpin writes.

The £62,250 prize looks to be at the mercy of three main contenders: Roger Varian’s Doncaster winner Moraawed, William Haggas’s Ripon winner Victory Day, and Pamela Sly’s Newmarket victor Dazzling Dan.

Preference is for the latter to gain revenge for Moraaweed’s neck victory. The gelding is still improving and looks capable of pulling this off with David Probert on board.


Sir Michael Stoute’s Mekong looks the one to beat in the Sky Bet Race To The Ebor Grand Cup Stakes (3.00).

The Frankel gelding has progressed nicely thus far: a good second over 14f at Ascot at the end of last season was followed by a first run second over two miles at Sandown in May; now back to 13furlongs, he looks a much better option, as long as the ground isn’t too heavy!
