Luke Morris feels Found has proven herself at the top level ahead of Yorkshire Oaks at Ebor Festival

FRANKEL has made a brilliant start to his career as a stallion and it’ll be interesting to see whether he can claim another big win with Fair Eva in the Lowther Stakes at York. She’s looked a superstar so far and she’ll be one I’ll be watching closely.

I’m headed to Chepstow and the whole reason I’m going there is to ride Miss Marina Bay (4.30) for my boss Sir Mark Prescott and I’d like to think she’ll make the trip worthwhile. Having said that, I’d like to think I’ll have a few chances of getting some winners on the card as a whole.

1.55 York – Miss Infinity
She looks the progressive horse in this field and comes in off the back of a Listed win in France last time. She should handle the ground and has tactical speed so I’d expect her to run a big race.

2.30 York – Fair Eva
King George VI Weekend - Day Two - Ascot Races

It’s hard to look past her. She’s won both of her starts impressively and nothing looks capable of improving enough to beat her. She’s a potential superstar and I’m looking forward to seeing what she can do.

3.05 York – Azraff
This should be a truly-run race so being drawn wide shouldn’t be too much of a problem for him. He’ll need the rub of the green as it’s a big field, but I’ve ridden him before and he’s got plenty of talent and he’s on a handicap mark he can exploit.

3.40 York – Found
Found

Endless Time has been supplemented after her Lancashire Oaks win and it makes the race a lot tougher. However, Found has proven herself at the top level on many occasions and she should have too much at the end in my view.

4.20 York – Abingdon
She’s been generally progressive this season and she was beaten by a good one in Fireglow at Newmarket last time. She looks the class horse in this race and I think she’ll be back to winning ways.

4.55 York – Show Stealer
She’s been a bit disappointing since beating me on Marsha at Newmarket earlier in the year. If she came back to that sort of form then I think she’d be the one to beat. It’s just a case of whether she’s able to do that.

Cheers,
Luke
