York Festival 2021 Tips: NAP, Next Best And Outsider To Follow At Today's Meeting

Ladies and gentleman, it's finally here. The York Ebor Festival, one of the biggest Flat meetings of the year, is back - and we've got you covered with three cracking tips from Wednesday's card.

As well as a star-studded card at York, racing fans will be pleased to know that there are four other fixtures to enjoy today with races at Carlisle, Bath, Worcester and Kempton.

In the opener at York - the Symphony Group Handicap at 1.50pm - Henry Candy and David Probert take to the course with favourite Twilight Calls - seeking to bounce back after a flat run at Goodwood last time out.

Later on, Aidan O'Brien's High Definition will also look to bounce back following a discouraging run in the Irish Derby at the Curragh. He heads the betting in the Great Voltigeur Stakes at 3pm.

And after that, it’s the big one - the Juddmonte International Stakes - where Mishriff and Love will do battle in the Group 1 showpiece of the day at 3.35pm. 

Can Love get back to winning ways in the Juddmonte International Stakes this afternoon?

NAP (best bet)

York 4.10 (Sky Bet Handicap)

Tip: Arcadian Sunrise (9/2)

Plenty are in with a shout, but they may well fall prey to further improvement from the Irish challenger Arcadian Sunrise.

He was a big improver over hurdles this summer - winning two starts in handicaps - so has to be taken seriously now returning to this code.

York 3.35 (Juddmonte International Stakes)

Tip: Alcohol Free (11/2)

Likeable filly who has made giant strides, cementing a career best when beating Poetic Flare in Goodwood’s Sussex Stakes.

Also bagged the Coronation at Ascot earlier in the summer and is a big player if her stamina holds out here.

Outsider

York 5.20 (Nursery Handicap)

Tip: Frankella (16/1)

Off the mark at the third time of asking in 6f Newmarket maiden last month and ran as well as could have been expected next time, but latest effort at Goodwood was sub-par.

However, both sire and dam won the International on this card in 2012 and 2015, so she is not to be dismissed off this mark.
