York Tips: Copper Knight
Won over course and distance last season and returns only 1lbs higher. Still only four and could still be improving. Sharp track will suit.
Low draws have dominated this race in recent years with 8 of the last 10 winners coming from stall 5 or lower. That’s not to say it won’t change because draw biases are a moveable feast but until I see otherwise i’m sticking with those in single figure stalls.
Copper Knight started the 2017 turf season strongly, winning twice before the end of may and i’m expecting him to make a fast start again. He won over course and distance in impressive fashion and is only 1lbs higher.
Copper Knight mixed it with his elders last season and could potentially be even better as a 4-year-old. He’s got plenty of early speed and will enjoy quick conditions on a sharp track.
