Latest betting moves and going updates on the last day of York's Dante meeting

View from the top tier at York which finishes its three-day Dante meeting today
1 of 1

John Gosden rather hogged the Group 2 headlines at York on Thursday and the Newmarket trainer looks to have another string to add to that bow with Stradivarius in the feature Mansionbet Yorkshire Cup.

As York comes to a conclusion so Newbury starts its two-day Al Shaqab Lockinge meeting, with Newmarket and later Hamilton plus Cork in Ireland in the late afternoon making it five Flat meetings.

Aintree's popular evening meeting and Downpatrick in Northern Ireland add some jumping action after the nine-to-fivers have finished work.

Final thought
