There’s a another huge week of live racing coverage this week with the ITV Racing team bringing you the York Dante meeting on ITV 4 from Wednesday.

Wells Farhh Go is among 15 confirmations for the Betfred Dante Stakes in front of the ITV Racing cameras, at York, on Thursday.
The three-year-old was unbeaten in two starts on the Knavesmire last season.
He would be a hugely popular winner for Yorkshireman Tim Easterby if he can complete the hat-trick this week.
He is set to be taken on by the powerful Ballydoyle and Godolphin operations.
Aidan O’Brien has four remaining contenders in Full Moon, James Cook, Kew Gardens and Zabriskie in the mix.
Charlie Appleby could saddle Autumn Stakes winner Ghaiyyath and/or the unbeaten Nordic Lights.
Mark Johnston’s Mildenberger made a successful start to his three-year-old campaign in the Feilden Stakes at Newmarket in mid-April.
The son of Teofilo does not hold an entry in the Investec Derby at Epsom next month.


But connections do have the option of supplementing him at a cost of £85,000, should he prove his worth on the Knavesmire.
Charlie Johnston, assistant to his father, told the ITV Racing team: “He won well at Newmarket.
“He really stuck his head down and galloped out to the line and the first two were six lengths clear of the third.
“The way he finished off that race he looks like he is crying out for a mile and a quarter and a mile and a half in time.
“If he can go to the Dante and run well then we can dream of going to Epsom in June.”
Other hopefuls include the John Gosden-trained pair of Crossed Baton and Roaring Lion.
Thursday’s racing is the middle day of three days of live racing coverage brought to you on ITV 4.
