The eyes of all horse racing fans were on the Tattersalls Musidora Stakes at York on Wednesday

Give And Take claimed top honours in front of the ITV Racing cameras on Wednesday.
Willie Haggas’ charge claimed the Tattersalls Musidora Stakes at York.
A field of seven runners went to post for this recognised trial for next month’s Investec Oaks at Epsom.
Highgarden went off the 5-2 favourite to provide trainer John Gosden with a fourth successive win in the race – and a sixth in eight years.
Frankie Dettori took the market leader to the lead from the start.
But she was a spent force entering the final furlong, whereas Give And Take (7-2) battled it out with Dancing Brave Bear on the stands’ rail.
Ridden by James Doyle, Give And Take asserted close home to secure victory by a length.
Star sprinter Harry Angel made a successful start to his campaign.
The horse produced an authoritative display in the Duke of York Clipper Logistics Stakes.


Clive Cox’s charge was the 4-9 favourite on his first start since October, despite having to concede weight to each of his four rivals.
Ornate took the field along for much of the six-furlong journey, with Harry Angel racing with plenty of exuberance on his tail.
Furthermore, Adam Kirby asked the market leader, who won the July Cup at Newmarket and the Sprint Cup at Haydock last season, to extend.
The dual Group One winner quickly settled matters, pulling two lengths clear of the high-class and race-fit Brando inside the last two furlongs.
George Bowen was a dominant winner of the Infinity Tyres Handicap for trainer Richard Fahey and jockey Connor Beasley.
The 10-1 shot was nearer last than first during the early throes of the six-furlong contest.
But made rapid headway from the halfway stage and quickened up to lead with over a furlong still to race.


George Bowen pulled further and further clear and passed the post with six lengths to spare.
The live racing coverage on ITV Racing continues this afternoon with Day Two of the York Dante Meeting on ITV 4.
