Verdict

This isn't a great race by York's normal standards but it could be a good opportunity for GRAND DIAMOND to get off the mark for the season. Jim Goldie's charge stays further but is in good heart and only a pound higher than when successful over a similar trip at Ayr in August and, with several front-runners in opposition here, is likely to get the fast pace he requires. Moheebb had Ours behind when a close-up third at Carlisle 11 days ago and has a good draw, but Violent Velocity was beaten off a lower mark at Musselburgh last time and Gala Casino Star also looks to be back in the handicapper's grip now. Mountrath wasn't beaten far off his new mark at Goodwood, however, and makes more appeal than Spavento who is upped in grade today.
