Day 2 of the York Ebor meeting is fast approaching and Betfred Ambassador Frankie Foster is back with his each-way Lucky 15 across the first four races on the card. A 50p bet (total stake £15) would pay out £1,820.65 as of the time of publication…

Lucky 15 Tips – Thursday 24 August, 2023

  • Back Beautiful Diamond e/w in the 13:50 at York @ 11/2
  • Back Persica e/w in the 14:25 at York @ 11/2
  • Back Sonny Liston e/w in the 15:00 at York @ 15/2
  • Back Savethelastdance e/w in the 15:35 at York @ 4/1

13:50 – Beautiful Diamond was second to Relief Rally at Royal Ascot and hasn’t been seen since. This speedy Karl Burke-trained filly will come here fresher than the favourite and is a healthier price. I will be having a safe E/W bet on her!

14:25 – Persica is of most interest here, considering both Richard Hannon’s great record in this race and an eye-catching performance at Salisbury. The selection was disappointing on debut, but there’s clearly talent there as they decided to come back and win in style just three days later.

15:00 – Ryan Moore teams up with Sonny Liston again after a close second at the Royal meeting, and I think if he runs to that same level of form off a mark that’s just 2lb higher, he can win this. He had excuses last time out and with a clear passage today he should go well.

15:35 – I am contradicting myself slightly here because I prefer to side with classy horses at York over those that get into a battle, but for me Savethelastsdance is just the best horse in the race. I think everyone is getting carried away saying she can only race on soft. She was second in the Betfred Oaks on Good to Firm and that’s good enough for me!
