3.35 York, Saturday, August 26

The Ebor Handicap (3.35) at York on Saturday is as competitive as ever, but Nakeeta has recorded all her best form on good to soft, or softer, going and looks to have a sporting chance under highly capable apprentice Callum Rodriguez. Iain Jardine’s 6-year-old mare remains 14lb higher in the weights than when winning at Haydock two seasons ago, but she was only beaten half a length, off a 4lb lower mark, in the valuable November Handicap, over 1 mile 7 furlongs, at Leopardstown last October and far from disgraced when fourth, on ground probably a little faster than ideal, when last seen at Newmarket in June. Over her optimum trip, with cut in the ground and a decent pace to aim at, she looks cracking value at 16/1 with Sportingbet, Boylesports or Stan James.

Selection: Nakeeta to win
