It’s Day One of the Dante Meeting at York on ITV Racing

Final Classic clues and top-class racing are the feature on Bafta-winning ITV Racing this week.
The live actions kicks off off with the Musidora fixture that takes centre stage on terrestrial tv on Wednesday.
ITV Racing will show four races, starting with the 2.20pm, a handicap over nearly 1m 4f and eight are set to go to post.
Next up is the 2.55pm, a handicap over 6f, where there are four places up for grabs.
If Danzeno, ridden by Frankie Dettori, gets away on terms he has a great chance to get a place at least.
The big sprint of the day is the Group 2 Duke of York over 6f at 3.30pm.
This race sees the return of top sprinter Harry Angel who emerged as one of the star sprinters from last season.


Yes the horse has to give weight away he’s going to be very hard to stop for Clive Cox and Adam Kirby.
He won twice at Group 1 level this season and should be far too good for his rivals on his return.
The final live racing coverage comes in the shape of the Group 3 Musidora over an extended 1m2f at 4.05pm.
At face value this is a very weak renewal, but try telling that to Ralph Beckett who runs Ceilidhs Dream.
She showed some decent form at Newmarket last time and her trainer knows a good one when he sees one.
Winning a Class 6 novices’ event on Polytrack wouldn’t be an automatic recommendation for this under normal circumstances.
But Lubinka had run well in the Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket on her previous start and can take this step up in class in her stride.


Highgarden, a winner at Newbury last summer, started odds-on for her reappearance at Sandown.
But she disappointed and finished behind runner-up Give And Take and there doesn’t seem an obvious reason for a form reversal. Dancing Brave Bear, who cost $230,000, has won both starts on Polytrack and takes a step up in trip.
Ejtyah had a bit in hand when landing a Chelmsford novices’ contest.
Expensive Liaison only scrambled home in a similar event at Beverley.
