14.20 York COPPER KNIGHT
Ideal Conditions - Racing in May in races worth less than 35,000 when ridden by D Allen, J Doyle or Miss R Richardson (111)
Notes - the horse seems to thrive at this time of year and although I would have preferred him to have had a run he does go well fresh. He won a large field race at this track last year. He can lead but can also track leaders, which may be handy with El Astrounate in the stall next to him. Most of the pace in this race is drawn low and over 5f those that are held up have a poor record.
