This D Menuisier trained gelding is sure to find improvement from his seasonal debut run when third behind the H Morrison trained Candidate over one mile four furlongs on soft ground at Doncaster 20 days ago so with cheekpieces fitted for the first time and R L Moore taking over in the saddle he has to enter calculations today with the sounder surface in his favour

Berkshire Spirit has stepped in trip the past 2 runs on the AW and has improved for it. Likes to race prominently and was just nabbed close to home last time out. Seems to be improving for the experience and the Andrew Balding horses might just be coming to form with some good runs yesterday. Should like this galloping track and Olsin Murphy is in the saddle.

5.40 YORK


Trainer David Menuisier ...... ....... ...... ....... ...... ...> Jockey Ryan Moore

A David Menuisier trained 3 year old who has had 3 races on the flat finishing 2nd and 3rd once. He had his 1st race as a 3 year 20 day's ago when stepping up in distance in a class 5 handicap over 1m 4f on soft going, after being held up, stayed on well to take 3rd of 8 runners beaten 3 1/2 lengths. He is in a class 4 handicap over 1m 4f on good to firm going, and has top jockey Ryan Moore in the saddle, and has cheek-pieces applied for the first time. This horse run well for his first try over this distance after a break, got better ground today, trainer generally does well with 3 and 4 years old's , has a chance in this race today.

york 5.40

making miracles

With Pivotal and Galileo running through the bloodline the Mark Johnston 3yr old could progress nicely. Took him 3 races before the penny finally dropped when staying on at Pontefract in a Class 4 Novice Stakes over 1m 2f. That was followed up with another decent 2nd next time out at Newmarket again over 1m 2f but this time on firmer going. Has had a break and been gelded but still couldn't go one better at Pontefract first time out this season but maybe needed the run and the ground was soft that day. Think the drier ground and the extra 2 furlongs will suit and the booking of De Sousa could be a bonus.

5.40Y - Brisk Tempo
Last run was in a class 4 over 1m 2f 43yds where he finished a respectable 3rd of 11 keeping on
inside the final furlong but not having pace to threaten to be beaten 2 1/4 lengths. The ground
was soft which may not have entirely suited so could be seen to better effect on todays good to
firm and the extra couple of furlongs. Jockey P.McDonald has rode him on each of his four career
runs so should know how to get the best out of him and trainer R.Fahey has his horses in good
order with three winners here on Wednesday.

Nuits St George

Got going a bit late when stepped up to this trip last time, that run was his first for 6 months so entitled to come on for that. Fast ground an unknown but Jockey booking interesting as I think this is his first ride for the stable. First time pieces should also benefit.

Making Miracles

this is a 3yo race , at a quick count only 6 of the 16 runners have ran the distance of 12 furlongs, and only around 10 of the runner, have ran in a class 4 race, but not necessarily at todays distance, and only around 7 of 16 runners have ran on good/firm ground, but not necessarily at todays distance, however after a few rendition of Eeny, meeny, miny, moe, and a few rolls of the Yahtzee dice, this selection sums up the logic of todays race selection, and echos the need for an equal class and distance from the form guide , so that Eeny, meeny, miny, moe can be omitted. this selection is trained by Mark Johnston, has ran at a class 3 at 10 furlongs on good/firm ground, and was 2nd, steps up to 12 furlongs in to days contest, ground should suit, Silvestre De Sousa is in the saddle, has ew appeal, yet to many question marks needing answers, so relying on lady luck to give the answer to todays contest.

Trainer's nags aren't quite firing yet but he proved a deft touch at improving handicappers last season. The booking of elite jock catches the eye, his first for the yard (from what I can see), although dilutes the "correct" price a little. Travelled quite well without finding much stepped up to this trip last time, however, gets a much sounder surface and cheekpieces (something that has worked the oracle for this mob before).

(try yet again to get through a comp without having to bail)

He is still a maiden, but ran a creditable 2nd, LTO, his first run since being gelded. This is his first try at today's distance, which could suit him. The firmer ground should be to his liking. De Sousa takes the reins for the first time and this is a definite plus. He is decently weighted and handicapped. He has a good chance of breaking his duck, today.

Making Miracles - I feel like the ground has played a big part in York this week. Though he is yet to win in six starts, he has proven that he can fair well on any going. He got beat by 1l out at Newmarket on GF and has a good reappearance at Pontefract getting beaten by half a length. Look to take advantage of the of the up in trip today.

York 17:40

Victory Chime

Ralph Beckett's charge Victory Chime ran well against Banksy's Art beating him by by 1 1/4 lengths on his latest outing at Goodwood earlier this month. Today this step up in distance will suit him and he should be able to cope with the 6 lb rise for it doesn't look too harsh. Louis Steward is back in the saddle again today.
