Sam Turner's Best Bets BlogFRANKELLINA (York, 3.35) was withdrawn from a similar trial at Lingfield on Saturday because of underfoot conditions, but she is reportedly held in high regard at home and her stable love having winners at this meeting.

Her Yarmouth win wasn’t exceptional but she should thrive now she steps up in trip and could prove too strong for Sandown scorer Sparkle Roll and Sand Share.

SPACE BLUES (York, nap, 4.05) looked to find Nottingham’s extended mile stretching the upper limit of his stamina last time out but still recorded a time which could ensure he is competitive in this seven-furlong handicap.

The Godolphin colt had also raced exuberantly on his Newbury comeback over ten furlongs and a strongly-run event at today’s trip could ideally suit a horse with his cruising speed.

His trainer has enjoyed success at this meeting in recent times and Space Blues looks nicely drawn to run a big race.

Progressive stayer STARCASTER (York, 5.05) may be on the scene at the business end of the finale providing rider Jamie Spencer doesn’t overdo the waiting tactics.

Purchased out of Hughie Morrison’s yard for 35,000gns at the Newmarket October Sales, the four-year-old made a pleasing start to life for new connections when narrowly beaten at Thirsk and could go one better today. He chased home a smart Mark Johnston prospect in King's Advice on that occasion, coming from a long way off the pace to challenge and, with a good gap back to the third, the form looks solid.
