Selby's Pride
Racecard

Selby's Pride came within a neck of getting off the mark at the third attempt when she finished second of 10 at Beverley (5f). It was an impressive finish from the two-year-old as she was hampered and stumbled badly midway through the race. With a much less dramatic passage this time around, Tony Coyle's filly can go one place better. Her biggest danger will be Lucy Lulu, but she will be receiving 9lb from the only winner in the field.


Yankee Stadium
Racecard

It has been a fruitless career so far for Yankee Stadium as he has yet to prevail in 13 starts. There have been more than enough signs that an opening success is not far away. This horse was second of nine at Newmarket (1m) on his penultimate outing. He has now dropped down to selling company and that should be enough for him to record a win as the quality of opposition here looks much weaker than he has been facing.


Strawman
Racecard

A switch to Karen Tutty's yard has really helped Strawman as he is unbeaten in two appearances since that move. He scored at Beverley over 1m2f last month and then on his most recent start, he scored at Carlisle (1m1f). The four-year-old got up in the final stride in the second of those victories so he is back up to 1m2f here. He has a 5lb rise in the ratings to defy but the in-form gelding can do just that.


Mark's Choice
Racecard

Recent wind surgery looked to make a huge difference to Mark's Choice's performance when he scored over this C&D earlier this month. It was much better than what the sprinter has been producing over the summer. Sam England's experienced runner has gone up 4lb for that recent success, but he remains 1lb lower than his highest winning mark. With his breathing problems now behind him, he could be set for a strong end to the campaign.


About Ripon Racecourse

Nicknamed “the Garden”, Ripon is based in North Yorkshire where racing has been ongoing since 1664. Ripon was the location for the first ever race that included female jockeys in 1723. It was voted the 'Best Small Racecourse in the North' by the Racegoers' Club in 2003.

It is a very sharp right-handed oval shape with undulations on the straight which make positioning of horses key to winning races here. The Listed Ripon Champion Two Year Olds Trophy is the highlight of the calendar, which takes place in August.
