York: Space Traveller | 4:00pm Sky Bet Ganton Stakes (Listed) | Dom’s Pick
A brilliant weekend of sport kickstarts with a packed day of racing this Friday and the meeting at York takes centre-stage.
Our best bet of the day is Richard Fahey’s Space Traveller, who felt the impact of lack of race fitness when finishing well back in the field on his seasonal reappearance at Doncaster in March.
That was only his second run since November 2019, however, and on official ratings he is well in at the weights here if able to recapture his old form.
His sixth in the Queen Anne last year alone is probably enough for him to win this contest, having clocked up two Group 3’s and an Irish Group 2 in his career to date.
He finished third in the Strensall Stakes here two campaign’s ago and he remains relatively lightly-raced given he is five.
