The Tout’s tips for the York Ebor meeting
During the reconstruction of Ascot, The Royal Meeting was held at York and what a great success it was. This meeting is one of the summer highlights and The Knavesmire, as the course is known, never disappoints unless there is heavy rainfall and the River Ouse bursts its banks but this year it seems we are blessed with perfect ground.
The meeting kicks off with one of the most important races on the calendar in the shape of The Juddmonte International for horses of all ages over a mile and a quarter and Aiden O’Brien runs “the best” he has ever trained.
The Tout reckons that we should all have a small patent tomorrow in the first three races in the shape of Growl in the first race, Kingston Hill in The Voltigeur and Australia, the duel Derby winner and “the best”, to polish things off. The bet is a permutation of seven stakes and includes three singles, three doubles and a treble.
Let’s hope for a perfect start to the meeting and The Tout will certainly enjoy a grouse from a local moor with a fine burgundy if all three selections go in.
