IT’S the final day of the Ebor Festival at York, and it has been an amazing few days on the Knavesmire.

The £500,000 Ebor is the main attraction with several high-quality supporting races – here are some of the best longshots on the card.

1.50 York – Chief Ironside

Talented colt ran an absolute blinder to finish third in a Group 3 at Glorious Goodwood last time having raced up with the pace.

He does like to go forward, and there is every chance he could get a soft lead in this contest.

He appeals as the type to relish this wide, galloping track, and after just seven career starts there should be more to come.

2.25 York – Blue Laureate

Three-year-old has been steadily progressive in three starts for the shrewd Ian Williams.

The son of Poet’s Voice was given too much to do when seventh on his first start for the yard but has run crackers to finish second the last twice.

He was gaining on the winner all the way to the line over 1m4f at the Shergar Cup last time and should appreciate this 1m6f trip.

3.40 York – Time To Study

Tough four-year-old has plenty of strong form in staying races, including a second to top stayer Torcedor in a Group 3 at Ascot in the spring.

Rare disappointing effort on his latest start at Goodwood, but he didn’t appear to be at ease on the track that day.

First-time visor is fitted now and Silvestre De Sousa takes over in the saddle, so a better run is expected for record-breaker Mark Johnston.
