York – Ebor Festival NAP: REAL WORLD | 1:50pm Sky Bet And Symphony Group Strensall Stakes (Group 3) | Dom’s Pick
Sin bin Suroor’s colt has come on leaps and bounds since returning to English shores, and he looks to have too much on paper here for his rivals.
Given the manner of his Royal Hunt Cup success at Royal Ascot, which was followed up in sparkling fashion at Newbury, there could be more improvement to come and he could be even overpriced at this side of evens.
The reduction in trip doesn’t appear an obvious negative given the class he showed on Berkshire on his penultimate start, and he can land the hat-trick under Marco Ghiani here.
NB: PRIMO BACIO | 3:00pm Sky Bet City Of York Stakes (Group 2)
Ed Walker’s filly has really come on as a 3-year-old which started with a cracking fourth in a Group 3 at Newbury back in April.
She then blitzed a classy field at this track a month later, and wasn’t disgraced in the Falmouth from a contest that has worked out very well in the aftermath.
The ground in Deaville was probably too much on the soft side but connections keep her over the seven-furlong trip, and she should have a say back down in class.
