The Darley Yorkshire Oaks (3.35) is the feature on the Thursday of York's Ebor meeting and Racing Post tipster Graeme Rodway gives six of the best for day two on the Knavesmire.
Kinta @ 12/1
Metahorse @ 11/1
Tyrrhenian Sea @ 11/1
Golden Lyra @ 11/4
Land Of Summer @ 16/1
Adaay In Asia @ 7/1
Dramatised is a short-priced favourite for the Lowther Stakes (1.50) and will be hard to beat, but I've been taken with the way Kinta has progressed this season and she can cause an upset.
The George Boughey-trained youngster made short work of her opposition when easily landing back-to-back wins on the all-weather at Lingfield and Kempton on her first two outings, but it was her latest run in the Princess Margaret that points to her being top class.
She came from a long way back and dropped to the rear after finding trouble four-furlongs out, but from there she motored home to finish a clear second behind smart winner Lezoo.
Kinta is open to further progress on just her fourth start and can do better with a clean run.
The Goffs UK Harry Beeby Premier Yearling Stakes (2.25) has attracted a huge field, but there is a big gap between the best and worst of them on BHA ratings and Metahorse should be good enough to make the places at the very least, in a race that lacks any strength in depth.
Metahorse has improved with each of his four runs so far and gained crucial experience for this sort of test when landing small-field events at Chester (6f) and Thirsk (7f) recently.
He was well on top on both occasions and now returns to deeper company following consecutive career-best Racing Post Ratings. Further improvement might be enough.
The Clipper Logistics Handicap (3.00) is always a competitive race and this year is no different. Maybe Tyrrhenian Sea can provide the answer to the riddle for Roger Varian.
The grey son of Dark Angel won three in a row on the all-weather over a mile last winter and progressed well in defeat to finish second on finals day at Newcastle behind subsequent Group 2 winner Living Legend. That was over 1m2f, but he seems versatile regarding trip.
Tyrrhenian Sea was given a break after that and is entitled to come on for his reappearance run at Windsor in June, when he finished close up in last of four to the classy My Oberon.
He remains unexposed and open to improvement, so can step forward with that behind him.
Thursday's banker runs in the British EBF & Sir Henry Cecil Galtres Stakes (4.10) in the shape of Golden Lyra, who has loads more to offer tackling 1m4f for just the second time.
Golden Lyra is bred for stamina. She is by Lope De Vega out of a Sea The Stars mare and her half-brother Going Gone stays 2m4f. It's therefore encouraging that she was able to run so well over 1m2f at Newbury in June, finishing a close second in a hot Listed fillies' contest.
She made short work of her opposition when sent off at 2/13 for a novice on her first start at this trip at Kempton last time and can take another step forward with that effort behind her.
The Or8Wellness EBF Stallions Nursery Handicap (4.45) is a cracking betting heat and Land Of Summer makes lots of appeal from an each-way perspective for Richard Hannon's yard.
Land Of Summer was thought good enough to contest both the Albany at Royal Ascot and the Super Sprint at Newbury earlier this year and she wasn't disgraced in midfield in either.
She returned to calmer waters in a nursery at Goodwood last time and ran an eyecatching race. She was squeezed out early and had loads to do a furlong out, but flew home to finish fourth and be nearest at the finish, shaping like she would improve significantly for further.
She gets her chance to prove that here now up to 7f for the first time and should go well.
A step up in trip might also do the trick for Adaay In Asia in the British Stallion Studs EBF Fillies' Handicap (5.20) because she has shaped like 7f might be needed on her recent runs.
She comes here on a hat-trick after three consecutive victories over 6f and all on three occasions she was no stronger than at the finish. That was definitely the case when she won the Shergar Cup Sprint at Ascot on her latest start and that is one of the stiffest sixes around.
She is up 6lb, but looks sure to come on again and it often pays to follow a filly in form. Adaay In Asia is just that.
