Ray Flanagan with York Wednesday selections
thought for the day: I wonder how the Alan Crookes Golf competition will go this week.
Harvest Bow (20-1) landed the place money on Sunday. Two selections from the Knavesmire this afternoon.
York 1.50- First Eleven
Capable performer last season when unlucky third in red-hot Ascot handicap before landing a less competitive handicap over the same course and distance in September. Mark of 104 leaves very little leeway but might be further progress to come and gets the nod.
York 5.05- Thomas Cranmer
Form tapered off towards the back-end of 2018 but previously pretty decent showings on his favoured fast ground. Second over the course and distance last season and not disgrace in better handicap than this behind Pivoine also at this venue last August. Worth a sporting play at big odds.
