Not one of the seven races scheduled for York Racecourse this Friday has a prize fund lower than £10,000. By the end of the final race, just over £1 million will have been awarded. For today’s racing tips, the focus is on the latest analysis from Sky Sports and the Racing Post.
The 14:30 Handicap will feature 13 runners aged four or older competing for a share of the £20,000 prize fund. Although rated as second-quickest at 92, Maven is the favourite at 4/1. However, a potentially better option is the 11/2 Final Countdown, twice a winner in its last three races.
A £25,000 prize fund has then been stumped up for the 16:10 Fillies Stakes, which features 11 runners aged four or older. Jamie Spencer rides the crowd-leading Sleepy Sioux at 101 and odds of 14/1, but Ridge Ranger looks a better prospect at 4/1 after winning twice in its last three.
