NAP – ROYAL SCOTSMAN @ 3/1 with Bet UK 3.00 York

Our NAP of the day comes from the third day of the Ebor Festival at York Racecourse, where we have selected Royal Scotsman for Paul & Oliver Cole to triumph in this Class 1, Group 2 race over six furlongs – the Gimcrack Stakes.

This 2-year-old colt comes here in some fine form, with two wins in his four racing starts, most recently winning at Goodwood in July impressively. Royal Scotsman triumphed in the Richmond Stakes over the same trip as today’s task, winning by a length and a half to Al Karrar.

Royal Scotsman faces a three-pound rise today but looks to have had the most experience at a higher level than the other horses in this field. Jockey Jim Crowley every chance of making it back-to-back wins for the impressive colt.

NEXT BEST – STATE OCCASION @ 3/1 with Bet UK4.10 York

Our Next Best bet of the day also comes from the racing at York this afternoon, where we have sided with State Occasion in the Heritage Handicap over the 1m2f56y distance.

This 4-year-old filly comes here with a win, two runner-up finishes and two third places in her last six races on the flat turf. Most recently, State Occasion triumphed at Goodwood in July, winning off a heavy 9st 13lbs handicap. She is down four-pounds in the weights today, which should make this task a bit easier for the filly.

This Ralph Beckett trained 4-year-old most definitely has what it takes to beat the rest of the field here. Rossa Ryan is given the ride today on State Occasion, looking for back-to-back wins for the first time in the horses racing career.
