York Races - High Hopes

27/07/13 -- Well, in the two races mentioned at last night's York meeting the first was won by the horse drawn 19 out of 20 and the third race (13 runners) went to the horse drawn 10 with 11 coming second.

Continuing with the same theme, today's big sprint handicap is the 3.30, with the horses drawn highest being the well fancied Khubala (7/1) drawn 17, Rasman (18/1) drawn 18, Regal Parade (33/1) drawn 19 and Secret Witness (20/1) drawn in trap 20.

I'm gonna do Khubala to win under the peoples favourite Frankie Dettori, with an optimistic shoot for the moon 12 x straight forecast bets for the first two to come out of this lot in any order. It's better than doing the lottery anyway.

There's anther sprint handicap later in the card, which only has 7 runners so the draw advantage may not be so pronounced and the odds certainly won't be so large. For what it's worth though the high draws are Hello Beautiful (7/2) drawn 7 and Baytown Kestrel (4/1) drawn 6.
