Ryan Moore Day Three York Dante Meeting: Tower Of London is exciting

Ryan has three rides on the final day of York's Dante meeting

We've reached the final day of York's three day Dante Meeting, and Betfair Ryan Moore has three good rides on the afternoon...

  • Great debut for Amestris and she has fair claims

  • Potential is there for Bolsena off curent mark

  • Tower Of London an exciting horse for season ahead

  • Extra places on offer for each-way bettors on Friday

14:15 - Amestris

This is an extra place race with Betfair offering each-way bettors four places instead of three.

I rode her when she finished second at Newmarket on her debut last month and that was clearly a very encouraging first effort. This is a much hotter race but that initial run entitles her to hold a fair enough claim here. Hopefully, her draw in one proves a positive. The first and third from Newmarket haven't been seen since, but the fourth won well at Chester.

Race day update - Amestris is a non-runner.

15:15 - Bolsena

She was impressive when winning her maiden for me at Newmarket. This is a big leap up from maiden company, and she is currently only rated 87, but she has a great pedigree, being a half-sister to Triple Time and any number of other very good horses, so the potential is there to springboard off her current rating into this grade.

15:45 - Tower Of London

I always thought a lot of him at three but he is really blossoming now. He shaped very much like a Group 1-winning stayer in waiting when winning at Meydan last time, so I'd hope and expect he will be going close here, even under his 3lb penalty. It's a tough Group 2, and he will need to progress again to win this, but this is an exciting horse for the season.
