8 go in this Class 1 listed race at York. For me Acklam Express should be winning this race. Won a listed race last year at York so has the course and distance form.
Currently 2nd Fav Winter Power, Acklam Express has beaten twice already last year. Winter Power may need the run whereas Acklam Express had a run in Meydan end of march where he finished a creditable 3rd in a race, he was probably a bit too keen.
Dexter Belle won well at Pontefract last time and runner up to her that day has gone on and won two races back-to-back. Which would suggest that piece of form isn't too bad. She would certainly be a danger and there could be a lot more to come from her.
I still would stick to the Favourite here you know Acklam Express likes it round here has beaten the current 2nd favourite Winter Power a couple of times last campaign. I think Dexter Belle will go close so perhaps a reverse forecast between her and Acklam Express??
ACKLAM EXPRESS (WIN)
