Talking Horses: Showalong can shine at York warm-up for Royal AscotSaturday 12 June 2021
Tim Easterby’s colt has to a chance to impress in Saturday’s heritage handicap before Royal Ascot next week
Saturday’s 17-runner heritage handicap for three-year-olds at York is an ideal way to limber up for the even sterner challenges at Royal Ascot next week.
The pace looks to be in the middle-to-high stalls, which could give the fast-improving Showalong (3.40), a winner on the Knavesmire last autumn, an ideal tow. Tim Easterby’s colt was a ready winner at Chester’s May meeting too and should have better yet to come after just five starts.
