14:10 York

8 go to post in this listed fillies' stakes race Snow Lantern is the short price favourite after winning last time out albeit racing a bit freely last time out still won relatively comfortably. Any horse with Frankel in their pedigree will always light people's eyes up and you can see that there will be improvement in her after only running twice so far in Snow Lantern career. Just at the price I think she is a little short to be backing.

Love Is You didn't look to have had the best of races last time out and maybe was a tad unlucky and a little keen although did keep on well to finish 3rd. So, you would expect improvement in her race today and to have come on for that run.

The selection for me though is CREATIVE FLAIR at an each way price (Currently 13/2) Although stepping up in class today won well at Ascot last time out. I just feel there is more improvement to come from her. It is also interesting that Will Buick has chosen to ride Creative Flair over her stablemate Divine Light having previously ridden Divine Light in her last two races.

I just feel at the price Snow Lantern is one to take on and Creative Flair offers value I would hope she would place at the very least as long as she handles the York track. Charlie Appleby horses are running in good form at the moment which makes me more positive in my selection. But also, it wouldn't surprise if his other horse in the race Divine Light placed considering how well they are running at the moment.
