York Dante Festival: Noon Star | 3:10pm Tattersalls Musidora Stakes (Group 3) | Dom’s Pick [+£14.87 profit on £1 stakes for Flat NAP’s]
Day one of York’s Dante Festival kickstarts on Wednesday and there’s a fascinating trial for the upcoming Cazoo Oaks in the form of the Tattersalls Musidora Stakes at 3:10pm.
Our team is siding with Sir Michael Stoute’s Noon Star to keep her undefeated start to the season in place and head to Epsom Downs with every chance at landing her handler a first Oaks success since 1987.
The Galileo filly gave a good account over six furlongs on her debut at Salisbury, where the form has proceeded to work out strongly, and she was even more impressive over the mile trip at Nottingham thereafter.
She kickstarted her three-year-old campaign with a bang at Wetherby, putting the subsequent Lingfield Trial winner Sherbet Lemon well in her place.
This beautifully bred sort is sure to keep on improving and she looks the one to side with here, albeit Teona and Mystery Angel demand huge respect with Classic prospects of their own for Roger Varian and George Boughey, respectively.
