Timeform pick out their three best bets from York on Sunday...

"...he can defy a penalty dropping markedly in class."

Timeform on Ventura Ocean

Give It Some Teddy - York 14:20

Give It Some Teddy took another step forward when winning at Ripon a fortnight ago, producing a career best effort, and he is capable of another big run back up in trip. Francis Xavier has to be of interest on his first start for a new yard in cracking form, while Addis Ababa and Rock Force are a couple of others to note.

Ventura Ocean - York 15:25

Ventura Ocean was far from disgraced in the Acomb over C&D last month, with class rather than a lack of stamina telling on the day, and he can defy a penalty dropping markedly in class. Sapa Inca looks capable of winning an event off this type, while Woven shaped very well on debut at Newcastle.

Roundhay Park - York 17:00

Roundhay Park's runner-up effort at Ascot last month is very strong form in the context of this race, and back over 6f, he can confirm himself to be ahead of his mark. This, as you would expect for a 3-y-o sprint handicap, is competitive, with Shaheen and Wahoo heading the opposition.
