Sweetspots: Mystic Flight set to soar to York glory for Varian
Roger Varian saddles Mystic Flight (4.50 York) for his handicap debut. The trainer has a 21 per cent strike-rate with his handicap debutants and the gelding looks open to improvement over a mile.
Sir Mark Prescott has a 36 per cent strike-rate at York and he saddles St Michel (2.25) for another attempt at the same race in which he was third last year. This looks tougher but he was a bit unlucky 12 months ago and he is fresher than most and he could run well at big odds.
Oeil De Tigre (6.35 Goodwood) has won three times from four starts at the track. Ridden by regular partner Sophie Ralston, Tony Carroll’s runner looks likely to put in another big run at a track that doesn’t suit many.
