Welcome A very warm welcome to YorkMix Family Sunday with its feature race, the £52,000 Listed BioWaveGO Garrowby Stakes. It is a very special day for York Racecourse full of racing ponies, thoroughbred racehorses, mechanical racehorses, retired racehorses, meerkats, snakes, tortoises, plenty of sheep and one famous very famous rabbit! I hope you and your family thoroughly enjoy your day. With prize money for this day on offer for the seven thoroughbred races of close to £150,000 starting at 2.10pm we have 68 declared runners vying for the honours. We have some top-class horses and jockeys racing today, made possible by both your support and the backing of the YorkMix, our partners and sponsors. We are delighted to welcome locally based leading rider at York, Danny Tudhope, not to mention a pair of previous Champion jockeys in Paul Hanagan and Silvestre De Sousa, plus a Grand National winning rider, Graham Lee. The feature race today has been backed by BioWaveGO, new supporters to York who would be pleased for you to visit their display in the Ebor Stand lobby, it really is a clever box of tricks for anyone looking for non-pharmaceutical help with pain relief. This support has been rewarded with a small but interesting field, with Gulliver returning to the scene of his big race victory in last year’s Coral Sprint Trophy, for leading York handler, David O’Meara, taking on Fivethousandtoone from the yard of Andrew Balding, an operation that currently sits top of the national Trainer’s Championship Prior to the thoroughbred racing we are proud to host two legs of the Pony Racing Series. York is delighted to welcome these ponies, young jockeys and their connections to the Knavesmire - who knows maybe they will return one day as professional pilots. You can bet on the outcome and I hope that you will enjoy the extra sport. Our last race is contested by Apprentice riders, many from Yorkshire yards, so it is highly appropriate that it forms part of Go Racing in Yorkshire inspired “Future Stars” Series, which culminates in a Final at Doncaster in November. Now in its seventh year, coming into this race, Oisin McSweeney leads by 5 points from Rhys Clutterbuck, but with the legs at York and Catterick plus the Final itself still to go, there are still enough races for the situation to change In terms of the wider attractions, I hope you can find time to visit the Racing Interactive Zone or to see Peter Rabbit, both set in the picturesque surroundings of the Edwardian Weighing Room Lawn. There is yet more entertainment based in our “big top” in the middle of the course; Joe’s animal encounters, bubble football, the jungle slide, are just part of the fun. For more details of all the extra entertainment today see page seven. All of the entertainment be it The Sheep Show, bouncy castles or face painters around the racecourse, are free for our younger (and young-at-heart) racegoers. Racegoers are free to move both sides of the racetrack at the crossing by the Thatched head-on box. A big thank you to all the younger listeners who entered the “Design a racecard cover” competition with YorkMix. Well done to Isla Walker from Bishopthorpe on her winning entry! Do visit the YorkMix website later this week to catch up on all the photos from today. I hope you thoroughly enjoy the racing and experience of this unique day in our season.

The William Hill Betting Shops around the course offers a full SP service, so bets on racing and the wider sporting world. The colour of the main betting ring returns, set in front of the Knavesmire Stand, take on the challenge. Contactless payment is available for all the above options. Good luck.

EMERGENCY PROCEDURES York Racecourse always strives to ensure your safety, comfort and enjoyment. However, an incident may occur which is beyond our control. We have employed professionally-trained and experienced stewards. In the event of a situation which requires a partial or full evacuation of the stands, announcements will be broadcast and stewards will usher you to a place of safety; it is essential that you follow their instructions. Please take your belongings with you and proceed out of the area quickly and quietly. If we are unable to re-occupy the stands, you may be invited to return to your car or coach. Departure from car and coach parks will be under the direction of the Police. The foregoing is a precautionary tale. 13


A RACECOURSE FOR ALL We want the racecourse to offer both a welcome and an enjoyable day to all our racegoers and in delivering that we recognise that some may need additional assistance from us.

The first thing to say, please just ask for help, if the team don’t have an instant answer, then they know someone who will. The team in the Racecourse Reception (behind the Ebor Stand) act as the link to the rest of the team, as needed. FAQS Is there disabled and blue badge parking? Yes, I hope you found it. All our car parks have designated spaces near their front row. Can I get help with getting to/from the car park, taxi rank or shuttle buses? Yes, there is a complimentary buggy service to all these points, ask at racecourse reception or next time you arrive just call 01904 620911. Thank you for your patience as the buggies can only transfer 4 people at a time and it’s a big site. Can I bring a wheelchair? Yes, if you need to; but we also offer complimentary hire, again from Racecourse Reception (see told you they were the hub). As we hope you’ll appreciate, there are only so many wheelchairs on site, if you need to reserve in advance then call 01904 620911. Can I bring somebody to help? Yes, we appreciate that will come in various forms, we hope our “carer comes free” scheme is a help, before your next visit check it out online at www.yorkracecourse.co.uk or just ask the team today. Are there wheelchair viewing platforms? Yes, in all stand side area and Stands - easiest thing to do is to ask our Stewards, though a map is available from, you guessed it, Racecourse Reception. Please use these in the spirit intended, with carers being prepared to step aside to allow space for those who need the view the most. What about toilets and are they part of the Radar scheme? Yes they are, all the permanent toilet blocks have a disabled capability, please ask for directions or check that map from you know where. Are their wheelchair height food and drink counters? Yes there are but not as many as we’d like, please ask a member of the team to assist you. Wheelchair height betting? Yes, there are some Tote counters set at a reduced height though a better plan might be to use the courier service that operates in areas such as the main Champagne Lawns; the Tote team themselves are always willing to help. There was one more thing? Please ask, we value your feedback so we can keep improving in this area.

There are various points and different ways to bet here at York. 1. Place a bet with the tote. 2. You can go to the betting ring. 3. Use a William Hill Retail SP Betting Shop. With over 300 tote betting points located around the course, there is always one nearby. The main betting ring is situated in front of the Knavesmire Stand with an additional ring in Course Enclosure and sometimes a third set of bookies on Bustardthorpe Lawn.There are three William Hill Retail SP betting shops at York; one at the southern end of the stands, the second on the ground floor of the Knavesmire Stand and the third being the refurbished shop on the ground floor of the Melrose Stand. In addition, racegoers in the Clocktower Enclosure will find a William Hill Retail SP facility underneath the clock tower. PLACING YOUR BET WITH A BOOKMAKER Shop around for the best odds against your selection. When you have decided on where to place your bet, state the number of your chosen horse and the stake, for example “number 4, £2 win”. Listen to the bookmaker repeat the number of the horse and the stake to his/ her clerk and hand your stake to the bookmaker. You will then be given an itemised receipt that gives details of the bet and shows potential winnings. You should keep this ticket safe. COLLECTING YOUR WINNINGS If your selection wins (or, in the case of a place bet, is placed), hand the ticket back to the bookmaker for settlement. NEVER destroy your ticket until after the “Weighed In” announcement has been made. There may still be a stewards enquiry and the first past the post, or placed horses, may be disqualified. On rare occasions even the horse coming fourth has been awarded the race. You may bet with confidence with any bookmaker as they have all been approved by the Administration Of Gambling On Tracks Limited, which administers the betting rings at each of Britain’s 59 racecourses. The AGT also offers a full late pay service, in case a bookmaker leaves the course before you have collected your winnings. Late Pay Claims should be sent to Administration Of Gambling On Tracks Limited, 3a, Kings Hall, Parsons Green, St Ives, Cambs, PE27 4WY.

WAYS TO BET STRAIGHT EACH WAY

Official BHA Ratings The BHA Handicappers allot ratings to horses once they have taken part usually in three races to enable the Handicappers to make a numerical assessment of each horse’s ability. The principal purpose of the ratings is to determine the weight to be carried by each runner in handicap races, with the Handicappers aiming to provide each participant with an equal chance based on its best recent form under its optimum conditions. A horse rated 100, for example, would be set to carry 1lb more than a horse rated 99 (ignoring any penalties or allowances). The ratings published in the racecard for handicap races are the ratings that were used to calculate the weight to be carried by each horse, whilst in non-handicaps races the rating shown is that of each runner at the time that the entries for the race were confirmed. Any subsequently published change to a rating, either up or down, is shown in brackets following the rating. Racing Post Standard Times is an independent assessment based on how long it should take a 90 rated horse to win on Good To Firm ground at York. Race tactics, rail movements, and wind direction are amongst the many factors to also affect the time for each specific race. Non-runner Ground - The Trainer states the ground is not suitable for this horse, the official going has changed since the time of declaration. Vet - The Trainer states the horse is subject to a Veterinary Certificate. Self Certificate - The trainer has advised the authorities that the horse is not able to race today.

You must be 18 or over to place a bet You may be asked to provide proof of your age when placing a bet If you cannot produce this your bet will not be accepted

Characters of the Scree

- AND TURF PETER RABBIT

Both “Peter” and “Rabbit” have have featured in a whole host of racehorse names throughout the year’s however none have had the pleasure of being named after Beatrix Potter’s very own ‘Peter Rabbit’. One of the more local ‘Rabbits’ was the Tim Easterby trained White Rabbit, who ran twice at York and was owned by York Racecourse Life President, Lord Halifax. She had two great placed efforts at the track including an agonising second, despite her consistency she only managed to register one win at Pontefract on debut. Interesingly her highest rated progeny on the flat and over jumps, Magic Show, went onto be trained by Peter Bowen but didn’t run at York during his career. Peter Beaumont was another who had great success and brought the Cheltenham Gold Cup back to Yorkshire, he is greatly missed and remembered fondly by all. His local contemporary, Peter Easterby is another with a glittering CV, including three Champion Trainer titles from the jumps code.

HARRY POTTER AND THE SPORT OF KINGS Harry Potter, who almost cast a spell over the field in a claiming race here in 2004, but had to settle for third place. Had it been Quidditch rather than horse racing, he would definitely have won. Harry’s teacher, Hamish McGonagall, is another to have run well here, second to by coincidence to another name from children’s drama, Barney McGrew, at the 2009 Welcome To Yorkshire Ebor Festival.

PUGH, PUGH..... Barney McGrew, trained in Darlington by Group One winning trainer, Michael Dods, was a York regular, and set a new track record for five-and-a-half furlong races that day. The horse is named after one of the characters of the much loved Trumpton TV Show.

COMIC HEROES

The Comic Strip Heroes, whose horses run in the red and black hooped colours synonymous with Dennis The Menace himself. Arguably the syndicate’s best horse, however, is Winker Watson. The Peter Chapple-Hyam trained colt, who like Desperate Dan is a character from the Dandy, is a two-time Group 2 winner, including the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2007. 26


A LICENCE TO THRIL The James Bond connection with the Knavesmire has been strong with the likes of Casino Royale, For Your Eyes Only and Moonraker running here over the years. Sir Roger Moore made his racecourse debut here at the 2015 Dante Festival but Felix Leiter, Bond’s colleague in the CIA, has enjoyed success here twice for Middleham-based handler Karl Burke, most recently on Macmillan Charity Raceday 2016 before transferring to sunnier climes.

G TTA CATCH ‘EM ALL! The Pokémon Go craze may have been and gone but the cuddly (or not so cuddly in some cases!) creatures have been scarce on the Knavesmire. Squirtle, a 65-race veteran, Lanturn, the 1999 Kerry National winner, and Mulk, last seen in the Tercentenary Stakes at Royal Ascot of 2016, are some of the more renowned Pokémon to have had horses named after them but it is Blaine, a gym leader in the fantasy world, that has enjoyed great success here. Thirsk-based trainer Kevin Ryan, sent the speedster to his three career victories at York, including in the Group 2 Al Basti Equiworld Gimcrack Stakes.

FROM THE HORSE’S M UTH

Unsurprisingly, there have been numerous equine stars of the silver screen represented by those on the track. Mr Ed, named after the famous talking horse, ran twice at York for Peter Bowen but enjoyed greater success in the National Hunt sphere while Beau, John Wayne’s steed in the film True Grit, was another to excel over jumps. Black Beauty and Bullseye, of Toy Story fame, didn’t have the most illustrious of careers but Fury, who shares his name with the eponymous American TV series of the late 1950s, was a different story. In a 25-race career in which he amassed upwards of £350,000 of prize money, the William Haggas-trained miler graced the Knavesmire five times and landed the Hambleton Stakes at the 2012 Dante Festival.

The IRE Incentive, It Pays To Buy Irish EBF Novice Stakes (GBB Race)

5f 89y Novice £13,000 2 Farside

Five Furlongs About 89 Yards (1,000 metres)

See page 77 for conditions of this race.

RACE DESCRIPTION We start the day off with a Novice, this race is limited to 2yo horses and is over the unusual distance of five and a half furlongs. Those that have made a winning debut already this season will carry additional (so called penalty) weight which is why Sophie’s Star sits at the top of the tree after her Beverley & Thirsk successes. The other fillies start with a lower burden, see how Kindness is one to carry less than Profit And Loss, a male rival. All are registered with the European Breeders’ Fund. This means that their sire (father) is based and registered in Europe with the EBF, which is a scheme to encourage the best in bloodstock. Perhaps the advice of our expert panel on the Winner’s Podium at 12.45pm will give you the answer.

LAST YEAR’S RACE Winner: MAMBA WAMBA Trainer: Adrian Nicholls Jockey: Barry McHugh Age/Weight: 2-8-11 Runners: 13 SP: 6/5F Broke well and tracked leaders to the furlong pole where he made smooth headway into first place. Pushed out by Barry McHugh to win going away.

KNAVESMIRE TIP Despite carrying a penalty, experience may be able to guide SOPHIE’S STAR to a third career victory having finished third in Listed company last time out. The Karl Burke-trained two-year-old has been enjoying a progressive campaign and rates the one to beat with Pierre-Louis Jamin claiming 5lb. Buckshaw Village has displayed plenty of encouraging signs on his two appearances and he rates the biggest danger. True Icon cost 130,000gns as a yearling and the intriguing debutant merits plenty of consideration.

NEW BEGINNINGS BECAME A CHARITY IN JANUARY 2016. The ‘passion’ behind New Beginnings is to provide a safe supportive environment for former racehorses to adapt and learn new skills after they have finished their first career in racing. They have brought the following horses to parade this afternoon:

MISTER MCGOLDRICK AKA MAC Ridden by Dawn Mawson • Trained by Sue Smith

91 starts over hurdles and chase, with 15 wins including the Racing Post Plate at Cheltenham in 2008 Total earnings of over £372,000 A true Yorkshire legend who is now an ambassador horse for New Beginnings.

GINGER’S LAD AKA JACK Ridden and adopted by Mark Holmes • Trained by Mick Easterby

45 starts over hurdles and chase, with 2 wins and total earnings of over £14,000 Successfully rehomed and now doing BE competitions and thoroughly enjoying his new career.

FREQUENCY AKA LOUIS Ridden and adopted by Debbie Foster • Trained by Keith Dalgleish

59 starts over the flat and hurdles, with 11 wins and total earnings of over £32,000 Successfully rehomed and loving his new life as a riding horse and competing at showing and dressage.

LOUKOUMI AKA KOUMI Ridden and adopted by Jess Cunningham • Trained by Tim Easterby 21 starts on the flat, with 1 win and earnings of over £5,000 Recently rehomed and just starting her new life as a competition/riding horse.

PLAY THE FLUTE AKA FLUTE Ridden by Kirstie Rainford • Trained by Michael Blanshard

5 starts on the flat, with no earnings Recently came to New Beginnings and is working well and looking for her new home.

Hopefully our mix of horses highlights that every former racehorse, whether successful or not, has the ability to retrain and have a new career. They can then achieve their own potential in a safe and secure, loving home.

They all deserve a ‘Life Past The Post’. If you want to find out more about rehoming a racehorse talk to the team at Racehorse Corner or contact New Beginnings Horses CIC on 01759 369810 or visit nbhorses.org.uk

2nd Race 2.40 The John And Judith Marshall Memorial Stakes

6f Handicap 76-95 £17,000 3 Farside

Six Furlongs (1,200 metres)

See page 77 for conditions of this race.

RACE DESCRIPTION Now for the first handicap of the day, this race is for just 3yo horses over six fulrongs. Designed for close competition, the handicapper is an independent assessor who rates horses on their past performance seeking to get them crossing the line together, by handing out differing weights. The opposite way around to golf, the best on past performance, will be the highest number, so will carry most weight, First Folio has the dubious honour here. Need some help? Look further for the letter “C”, which shows that the horse has won at York or “D” which denotes a win over this distance; see how Imperium Blue qualifies on both counts.

LAST YEAR’S RACE Winner: MR CARPENTER Trainer: Tim Easterby Jockey: David Allan Age/Weight: 4-9-0 Runners: 19 SP: 25/1 Held up in last after a slow start but made steady progress through the field before being sent for the winning post inside the last furlong by David Allan. Long-time leader Anythingtoday had no answer once passed.

KNAVESMIRE TIP PAGAN shapes like a sprinter who could take higher rank in time and the form of his latest win at Brighton has been given numerous boosts with the second, third, and seventh all winning since. An 8lb rise may not be enough to stop him and he can fend off the attentions of First Folio, who drops in grade having won impressively over C&D back in June. The consistent Bergerac also warrants consideration, as well as Imperium Blue, who is expected to relish the step up in trip for his in-form stable.

See page 77 for conditions of this race.

RACE DESCRIPTION Our richest race is a part of the Pattern pyramid (think divisions in football) which denotes the best contests, Listed (such as this), Group 3, Group 2, rising to Group 1. This means it is in the top 300 races in the land. Open to three-year-old horses and older, the competitive edge is sharpened by the nuance that horses who have won this season in the top two divisions are excluded. What’s more, those with a win at either Group 3 or Listed level would have to carry extra weight, but today’s quartet are all looking for a first “W” at this lofty level. Though there is provision for fillies to start with less weight, none of the girls are taking their chance today. An in-form stable could be the clue here, see the table at the beginning of this race.

LAST YEAR’S RACE Winner: STARMAN Trainer: Ed Walker Jockey: Tom Marquand Age/Weight: 3-9-0 Runners: 9 SP: 7/2 The excellent Starman announced himself as a special horse when he took this race 12 months ago. Came with a sweeping run around the field and readily completed the hattrick.

KNAVESMIRE TIP GREAT AMBASSADOR has shown improved form since switching to this yard and, having registered his second win of the year when landing a Newmarket handicap last month, the four-year-old looks capable of taking this step up in grade in his stride. Tabdeed has performed well on all three of his starts this year and rates a serious threat, while Gulliver produced an excellent effort when second in the Stewards’ Cup on his latest start and is also worthy of respect.

HOW MIGHT YOU SOLVE A BIG SPRINT HANDICAP? THE JOHN AND JUDITH MARSHALL MEMORIAL HANDICAP STAKES

This afternoon’s John and Judith Marshall handicap looks a tricky betting proposition for novice racegoers with twelve closely matched runners set to go to post. Is it best to plump for a lucky number, an interesting name or a set of jockey silks you like the look of? Whilst all of these strategies may throw up the odd winner, a safer and more prudent approach would be to apply some straightforward methodology. Narrowing down the field of twelve declared runners is easier than you think if you follow a few simple guidelines, to hopefully identify the winner of this and the other handicaps. Before we start, it is important to understand what a handicap is. Once a horse has raced three times they are given an official rating (often referred to as a handicap mark) by the British Horseracing Authority. This provides a numerical guide to each horse’s level of ability. Ratings usually start at around 40 for a modest performer with the mighty Frankel finishing his career in the 140s. The ranking operates the opposite way around from a golf handicap, so each time a horse runs this rating is adjusted either upwards for a good performance or down for a weaker effort, so that it reflects the horses most recent form. Each of these rating points are meant to reflect 1lb in weight, so looking at today’s race, First Edition, who is rated 92 is considered 1lb “better” than Desert Gulf who is rated 91. If these horses were to race carrying the same weight theoretically First Edition should win every time as he is the better horse. Races which were too predictable wouldn’t make good viewing and therefore the handicap is designed to set a level playing field. So in this example First Edition carries 2lb more than Desert Gulf which should in theory see them cross the line together and that rule applies to all of the thirteen runners – but, despite dead heats being a possibility, you won’t ever see all dozen runners cross the line together so how to separate them in advance? Horses which won or ran well last time will attract the interest of the handicapper and a rise of 6 or 7lb can often follow. Sometimes this can prove a step too far as horses then struggle to concede weight to lower rated rivals. Eventually as the horse continues to run without winning their rating will come back down to a winnable mark and the whole cycle begins again. The art is working out which category your horse falls into. Don’t forget to ensure you keep an eye and an ear out for non-runners, there will be announcements over the PA system and the screens around the course will be updated with non-runner information, as they have to be in it to win it!

1) FORM Here at York it often pays to side with horses in form but it is also important that they look like they still have a bit of improvement left. There are a few who come here without having the best of recent records and so might be best ignored today; International Dream, Ava Go Joe & Lost My Sock. 2) THE DRAW Where a horse is drawn in the stalls can be an important factor, particularly in a sprint and is perhaps one of the most debated topics in racing. Some punters swear that being drawn close to a rail is an advantage as it keeps a horse focused on running straight. However here at York, in recent seasons those drawn down the centre of the track have often held the upper hand, the counter logic being that their jockey can keep an eye on the competition on both flanks. Perhaps another nail in the coffin for Ava Go Joe. 3) DISTANCE Having a runner who has already shown their liking for a particular trip can be invaluable. Those without a win over today’s six furlongs distance include: Pagan, Imperium Blue. 4) GROUND If you thought the debates over draw were intense then try talking about the impact of ground to a racing anorak. In simple terms, different horses run better on different types of surface, just like some human athletes might prefer cross country to the track. Desert Gulf is one who will enjoy a quicker surface. However Ey Up It’s Maggie’s win have come on a surface that is a little softer. So make sure to check the weather and the ground description. 5) YORK RECORD “Horses for courses” is not a popular phrase by accident, just like football teams have a lucky ground, the same can hold true for our equine athletes; but of those who remain, only Imperium Blue has won at the course. 6) CONCLUSION Following these simple rules has helped to narrow down the shortlist. Going on a hunch that ‘good to firm’ will be the description, the William Haggas-trained Pagan might well continue is flying form and could take all the beating. He loves the six furlongs and will get his favourite surface. He has been on a steep upward curve and although he i stepping up in class he has proved he goes well at York after a narrow second so gets the nod here. 51

4th Race 3.45 The Coopers Marquees British EBF Future Stayers’ Novice Stakes (Sire and Dam-Restricted Race) (GBB RACE)

Distance: Race Type: Prize Money: Age: Stalls:

7f Novice £17,000 2 Farside

About Seven Furlongs (1,400 metres) See page 77 for conditions of this race.

RACE DESCRIPTION A rare type of race, made competitive by only being open just 2yo horses, but with an added twist that one of their parents (sire=Dad/dam= mum) had won a race over a distance of more than ten furlongs. Imagine a school sports day race limited to the offspring of just talented middle-distance runners and you can see how the gene pool is intended to create close competition. The broader intent is to encourage a wider pool of horses into becoming bloodstock, not leaving future generations simply to those who were successful over the shorter distances. All are registered with the European Breeders’ Fund. This means that their sire (father) is based and registered in Europe with the EBF, which is a scheme to encourage the best in bloodstock. The advice is to rely on your choice of the two ‘p’s pedigree or pin!

LAST YEAR’S RACE Winner: LENNY’S SPIRIT Trainer: Ed Dunlop Jockey: Tom Marquand Age/Weight: 2-9-5 SP: 22/1 Runners: 8 Tom Marquand continued his excellent form to win for trainer Ed Dunlop and his mount Lenny’s Spirit was extremely game when pressed by Eclipse De Lunar.

KNAVESMIRE TIP The two last-time-out winners, Boondoggle and Flash The Dash, both have to be respected despite carrying penalties. The former was joined on the line when attempting to make all at Newcastle last time, while the latter’s two runs have both been at Gosforth Park and he impressed when running away with the race latest. MISTRIX gets plenty of weight from those two rivals, though, and George Scott’s filly has only been narrowly denied in both starts so far, so she could be the answer.

RACE DESCRIPTION Getting the hang of handicaps? Your vital statistics are; 3yo+, rated 61-80, going two miles. A race for the established stayers, watch them come past the stands twice as they race over the longest distance of the day, completing a circuit of the Knavesmire. Remember, the best will be the highest rated and so will carry more weight, Khagan has top weight here. Looking for help? Then follow the racecourse tipster, who has marked his selections with a red bi plane.

KNAVESMIRE TIP The hat-trick seeking Gift Of Raaj has to be given plenty of respect following victories at Redcar and Musselburgh in recent weeks, but preference is for ALPINE STROLL. The son of Nathaniel remains a maiden but he has run well in defeat in some very competitive handicaps this year. He should find this to be easier than his most recent outing in the Melrose here last month and he appears to be on a workable mark. Others to note are Arabian King, Doublethetrouble and Gold Arch.

6th Race 4.50 The Hanson Springs Stakes

1m 2f Handicap 76-95 £17,000 3+ Inside Rail

One Mile About Two Furlongs (2,000 metres) See page 77 for conditions of this race.

RACE DESCRIPTION Another ticklish handicap to solve, the twist is for 3yo+horses only, rated 76-95, this time over ten furlongs. The high handicap rating band of 76-95 means that it will attract some pretty smart types (like for Test cricketers at The Oval, a score of near 100 denotes a top performer). The horse considered by the handicapper as the best will carry the most weight, Pivoine in this one. Perhaps take a close up look in the Parade Ring before they go to post.

LAST YEAR’S RACE Winner: ALBEN SPIRIT Trainer: Richard Fahey Jockey: Paddy Mathers Age/Weight: 3-8-7 Runners: 16 SP: 17/2 Alben Spirit just got his neck in front after a ding-dong battle all the way to the line. The Richard Fahey trained three-year-old kept on finding to narrowly deny Many A Star and Abstemious.

THE TALE OF THE CLOCK Race Average Time: 1m 11.64s Racing Post Standard Time: 1m 9.60s Course record: 1m 8.23s by Mince (09-Sep-12) All times are based where possible on the corresponding race over the last seven years

KNAVESMIRE TIP It may prove best to focus on the three-year-olds in this contest with a number of intriguing candidates, and narrow preference is for the Owen Burrows-trained MOKTASAAB, who displayed a smart change of gear when getting off the mark at Yarmouth on his latest run. Aramaic cruised home when landing a Musselburgh maiden last month and doesn’t look harshly treated off an opening mark of 87, while Duty Of Care made his first turf start a winning one at Pontefract last time and is also feared.

Yorkshire Regiment Back in March, the

Integrated Defence and Security Review unveiled a blueprint for a modernised Army. Over the next 18 months, the Army will embark on what is possibly the most significant transformation since mechanisation in the 1930/1940s, when it moved from animal feed to fuel cans and adopted the combustion engine. As Colonel, I have been involved at the Brigadier Zac Stenning OBE heart of the plan that will produce an Army that is more rapidly deployable, more digitally connected and networked, linking satellite to soldier; and when it fights, an Army that is more lethal, more mobile and much better protected. Importantly, over the next two years, your Yorkshire Regiment will be at the heart of this transformation re-energised with new roles and challenges. Although it is still early days, it is clear that the future role of 1 YORKS at Catterick will build on their 20 years of armoured infantry experience and on their return to the UK from Cyprus in summer 2022, 2 YORKS will lead the Army’s programme of experimentation, trials and development. This is an exciting proposition for 2 YORKS who will be at the forefront of future infantry tactical, technical and procedural development which will no doubt attract a great deal of attention on the abilities and performance of our soldiers.


The future of our regionally-based 4 YORKS Reserves also looks good and it is our intention to extend the reserve footprint across the region. We will also look to shape our recruiting, training and career development to better integrate our reserves into the new roles undertaken by the regular battalions. As the new Colonel, it will be my privilege to lead the regiment through the changes and opportunities that will present themselves over the next couple of years. I know as Yorkshire folk, we will stand proud and grasp the opportunity to spearhead the Army’s Experimentation programme and continue to lead the way in armoured and mechanized infantry capability, never more so than 2 YORKS’ recent performance in Kabul. The last of the 2 YORKS soldiers have now returned safely to their home in Cyprus, marking the end of a remarkable operation which saw 2 YORKS deploy their Lead Company group to Afghanistan to assist the international evacuation effort in Kabul. As the only county regiment remaining in the British Army, it has been a privilege to contribute to Op PITTING. Yorkshire’s Infantry can be rightly proud of their achievements and we are privileged to have deployed along with the UK Armed Forces to support this humanitarian effort.

THE BAND OF THE YORKSHIRE REGIMENT

The band was formed on 1st October 2008 following the Future Army Structure Review which culminated in a reduction of six Regular Army bands and the re-introduction of four new Army Reserve Bands. The band is established for 21 musicians and is co-located with C Coy, 4th Battalion, The Yorkshire Regiment, at the Army Reserve Centre in the heart of Huddersfield. Apart from one full-time band administrator, the musicians are all volunteers and are drawn from all areas of Yorkshire, they also hold full time civilian careers as well as some being students studying at Huddersfield University. There are also a number of the band who have served on Operations and as full-time Musicians in the Regular Army. THE DIRECTOR OF MUSIC CAPTAIN GARY CLEGG LTCL, LRSM, PSM, MBE Honours and awards have been the main theme during the last year with the New Year’s Honours List bringing well deserved recognition for Captain Gary Clegg, the Director of Music, with an MBE for his services to military music and the Regiment. Musician Chloe Barker was presented with Commendation for her achievements, including selection as the vocalist with the British Army Jazz Orchestra. Lance Corporals Birch and Hawksford were proud to receive their Volunteer Reserve Service Medals marking their 10th year of service in the Band. Despite the restrictions brought about by the pandemic, training has continued resulting in some interesting use of the available space to ensure safe distancing. Musicians peered around gym equipment, took to storerooms and rehearsed along corridors to maintain their performance levels ready for the resumption of engagements in recent months. Lockdown also allowed some members of the Band to take on new roles. Musician Farthing was selected for national recruiting as part of a 6-person Regular and Reserve team and Sergeant Keith Marsden took up the position of Drum Major following completion of a 10-day training course in Catterick. Although the opportunities for live performances have been restricted by the pandemic, the Band delivered a successful digital service of remembrance reaching over 4000 people on the Band’s social media page alone. Of note, Musician Browne performed the last post at the funeral of Captain Sir Tom Moore. In more recent weeks the Band has conducted public performances in Hull, Halifax Piece Hall and in York and are gearing up to a welcome return of performances across the region and beyond. Please drop by and say hello to us on the Roberto decking, to the south of the Knavesmire Stand- just listen out to find us.

1m 4f Handicap 66-80 £12,500 4+ Centre

One Mile About Four Furlongs (2,300 metres) See page 77 for conditions of this race.

RACE DESCRIPTION Another handicap completes today’s card, your vital statistics are; 4yo+, rated 66-80, going one and a half miles. An added dimension to the contest is that all the riders are still apprentices. Connections can reduce the weight carried by their contender by choosing which apprentice jockey to use; the level of the reduction depends on the past success of that apprentice. You can see this reflected in the bracketed figure after the rider’s name. So, follow the relative experience of Billy Garritty who partners Pearl Warrior, or take the weight relief by supporting Joshua Thompson who rides Red Force One.

KNAVESMIRE TIP The step up in distance seemed to unlock plenty of improvement in EMARATY HERO when a comfortable winner at Musselburgh last month. He can continue in that vein of form with Pierre-Louis Jamin’s 3lb claim negating half of a 6lb rise. The former Johnny Murtagh-trained Pearl Warrior followed him home that day and can do so again here. The Dancing Poet must be respected as he goes in search of a hat-trick, while stablemate Ghadbbaan has finished runner-up on his last two visits to the Knavesmire.
