Showalong will make his debut in York ahead of Royal Ascot.


Showalong will make his debut in York ahead of Royal Ascot.

On Saturday afternoon at York, the Pavers Foundation Catherine Memorial Sprint Handicap (Heritage Handicap) (3.40pm) can be won.

The Michael Appleby-trained horse can win the Coral ‘Beaten By A Length’ Free Bet Scurry Stakes at Sandown (2.15pm).

There’s plenty of decent action around the country, with excellent quality events being held at Chester, York, and Sandown ahead of next week’s Royal Ascot.

Tim Easterby is a consistent winner at York, and Showalong might be one of his wins in the contested six-furlong race on the Knavesmire.

Easterby has won three of the last seven runnings of this race, and Showalong appears to be another potential type for the stable.

Last season, the three-year-old son of Showcasing won two of his four races, including a five-furlong race at York in soft conditions in October.

On his second start of the season, he won another five-furlong race at the Chester May Festival last month, bringing him back to the winner’s circle.

He should be able to step up to six furlongs and go very close to winning ahead of the main contenders, Kevin Ryan’s and the Willie Haggas stable’s hat-trick hopeful.

With a good chance in the Queen Mother’s Cup Handicap (For Female Amateur Jockeys), Easterby may have previously had a couple of winners (2pm).

And there’s a chance he’ll bounce back in the JCB Handicap (2.35pm).

Both horses have been out of form recently, but Sameem is 10 pounds lower than his previous winning mark and should be ready to race after only a couple of outings this season.

Golden Apollo has previously won on the Knavesmire and is now down to the same handicap mark as when he won the Ayr Silver Cup in 2019. He will also be improved for his recent run at Haydock Park.

Frankie Dettori travels to Yorkshire in the hopes of landing a winner aboard Ed Dunlop’s, who can win the Listed Sky Bet Race To The Ebor Grand Cup Stakes for the second year in a row (3.05pm).

Others. The summary comes to a close.
