Best Is Still To Come, From Palmer’s Inmate

There are meetings on Wednesday at Carlisle, Chepstow, Kempton and Worcester, however the main focus will be on York where the world-famous Ebor Festival will get underway.

There will be a trio of Group encounters, beginning with the G3 Acomb Stakes (2.30). Hugo Palmer’s Best Of Days gave one of the most-impressive performances of any 2-year-old, this year, when winning at Sandown by 6 lengths. Bear Valley, Lockheed and Courage Under Fire all have more experience and present the biggest threats to the Azamour colt.

O’Brien’s Charge To Power Home, In The Volt

The G2 Great Voltigeur Stakes (3.05) is an opportunity for Sir Michael Stoute’s Across The Stars to further his credentials, following his victory in the G2 King Edward VII Stakes. Many punters are not entirely convinced about this Saeed Suhail-owned colt and Aidan O’Brien’s Idaho is indeed preferred. Despite not winning since October, he was 3rd in the G1 Epsom Derby and Across The Stars certainly doesn’t have any form in the book to match that.

Check out Stephen Wundke’s in-depth preview of the Juddmonte International Stakes and his preferred selection for this Group 1 British Champions Series race.

Listed Action, In Ireland

There are also 7 races at Killarney, where the Listed Vincent O’Brien Ruby Stakes tops the bill. Air Vice Marshall, 4th in this season’s G1 2,000 Guineas, should prove too good for his rivals considering how strong the form from that race is (despite Massaat imploding on his most-recent appearance). Air Vice Marshal finished almost 2 lengths ahead of Zonderland and looks the genuine class act in this renewal.
