KEY FACTORS

  • The 2019 Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes looks to be an intriguing affair with the top three in the betting all having big claims whilst there are a couple further down the field that could spring a surprise.
  • Michael Dods won this race in two consecutive years in 2015 and 2016 and he has two runners in this field with Mabs Cross the one to keep an eye on as she has a good chance of making it first past the post with the five-year-old mare coming into this race with an official rating of 114.
  • Battaash will hope to make it third time lucky in this race having fallen short in the previous two renewals but despite producing some brilliant sprinting performances over the years, he has never won at York.

ANALYSIS

This is a really difficult race to call with the two shortest priced horses in the betting market potentially set to battle it out at the front. Ten Sovereigns was an impressive winner of the July Cup but dropping back to 5f for the first time leaves question marks and Battaash may be worth siding with to finally handle the occasion.

TIP: BATTAASH (WIN)
