Taghrooda Ready To Sparkle On Day Two Of York's Ebor Festival

John Gosden's Oaks heroine Taghrooda will attempt to maintain her unbeaten record this afternoon, as the emphatic King George winner will return to do battle with her own sex this afternoon and she is a red-hot favourite to land more Group 1 glory in the Yorkshire Oaks at 3:40pm.

A top notch winner of the Epsom Classic earlier in the season, she then romped three lengths clear to land the aforementioned King George and if she can repeat anything like that effort this afternoon then will be almost impossible to beat in the highlight of day two of the Ebor Festival.

Aidan O'Brien will unleash a dual-pronged attack and Tapestry and Venus De Milo have a lot to find on their best form, whilst Oaks third Volume and the Saeed Bin Suroor-trained Tasaday add more depth to a field that is dominated by one star filly at the head of the betting.

Elsewhere on the card, Eddie Lynam's Queen Mary winner Anthem Alexander will look to frank the form with Weatherbys Super Sprint winner Tiggy Wiggy in the Lowther Stakes at 2:30pm, but that classy duo will have to get the better of Albany Stakes winner Cursory Glance in a mouth-watering renewal of that juvenile event.

The action on the Knavesmire kicks off at 1:55pm and the Richard Hannon-trained Kool Kompany will attempt to give weight away to all his rivals in the DBS Premier Yearling Stakes, but the likes of Fast Act and Markaz will be prominent players, whilst at 3:05pm a bumper field of 20 runners will line up in the ultra-competitive Clipper Logistics Handicap in a thrilling betting heat.
