As you may expect, there is plenty of discussion about Frankel ahead of the festival getting underway. Widely regarded as the best horse in the world, the Sir Henry Cecil trained horse will be in action for the Juddomonte International Stakes on Wednesday and this is definitely a highlight.
The honour of the most eagerly anticipated race at the festival goes to the Betfred Ebor handicap though. Taking place on the final day – Saturday – this is the race which the rest of the events at York are built around.
Amongst the horses going for glory in this one is Motivado. Following a storming victory at Glorious Goodwood, big things are expected of Sir Mark Prescott’s Colt. There are no fewer than four other horses at 10/1 or less though – including the popular Camborne – and all the ingredients are there for a thrilling race.
Other highlights over the next few days include Nunthorpe Stakes – which helps decide the best sprinters in the business over five furlongs – as well as the Yorkshire Oaks, a race which Frankie Dettori famously won last year.
Overall, it should be a thrilling few days with no time to take your eyes off the action.
Between Wednesday afternoon and Friday evening there are 25 races to place your bets on with the much discussed Betfred Ebor taking place from 3.40pm on Saturday afternoon.
