York Ebor tips: Templegate NAPS Sir Michael Stoute's superstar to win at 7-1 on day two

SUNSPORT'S top tipster Templegate goes all in with his selections on day two of the York Ebor festival.

Read on for Britain's best tipster's top picks.

ASTRO KING (3.00 York, nap)

Sir Michael Stoute’s four-year-old showed his quality when finishing an excellent second in the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot. He easily beat the field on his side of the track only for Real World to take it on the far rail.

Sir Michael’s horses often improve with age so he could have more to come under Ryan Moore.

SANDRINE (1.50 York, nb)

She can keep up her 100% win record. After landing a Kempton maiden on debut she stepped up to take the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot. Andrew Balding’s filly left even that good form behind when winning the Duchess Of Cambridge at Newmarket.

She quickened impressively there and can land another nice prize.

AMMA GRACE (4.45 York, treble)

She looks too strong in the Galtres Stakes. Irish legend Dermot Weld has a good record in this Listed contest and this four-year-old needed her comeback outing in a Cork Group 3 last time.

YORK

1.50 Sandrine (nb)

Already a double Group winner and can land another nice prize.

2.25 Ever Given

Went well again in hot race in Ireland and right in the mix.

3.00 Astro King (NAP)

Dropping back to a mile can see him strike again.

3.35 Snowfall

Double Classic winner who looks much too good.

4.10 Maglev

Yarmouth win before unlucky second at Chester last time.

4.45 Amma Grace (treble)

Needed her comeback latest and has plenty of class.

5.20 Spirit Of Bermuda

Two easy wins heading here and ahead of the handicapper.
