Banker of the Day

This week's Banker of the Day covers four meetings as the cards at Goodwood, Haydock, York and the Curragh are all shaping up to be quality!

We've picked out the leading contenders from four races on Saturday and are asking you, our Coral Racing Club members, if you had to vote for one to be your Banker of the Day, who would you pick?

The horse who gets the most votes will be put into an exclusive Coral Racing Club Odds Booster that will be available under Specials on the Horse Racing page shortly after the poll closes on Friday at 1pm.

Banker of the Day Preview

14:05 Goodwood – Francophone

In her five runs under rules to date, Francophone has won twice, most recently in a Class 3 fillies handicap at Southwell in April. She was last seen finishing in second, two lengths behind Secret Satire in the Group 3 Musidora Stakes at York and steps down to Listed company on Saturday.

Can she get back to winning ways?

14:25 Haydock – Vandeek

Vandeek arrives at Haydock looking to maintain his unbeaten run having won four from four in his stellar first season as a two-year-old last year for the Simon & Ed Crisford team. After winning on debut at Nottingham in a Class 5 Maiden contest, he went onto secure victory in the Group 2 Richmond Stakes at Goodwood, the Group 1 Prix Morny at Deauville, and then finished his campaign off with another top class performance in the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket.

Can he pick up from where he left off on his first run as a three-year-old at Haydock on Saturday?

15:20 York – Gather Ye Rosebuds

Jack Channon's filly has run twice this season, finishing 5th on bottomless ground in a Listed contest at Longchamp in April, before winning well at the same grade at Goodwood earlier this month. Connor Beasley regains the ride having won on her twice before. 

Can this filly go back-to-back for promising trainer Jack Channon?

15:40 Curragh – Rosallion

Rosallion aims for success in the Irish 2000 Guineas this weekend, having fallen a length and a half short in the English race at Newmarket earlier in the month. Richard Hannon's colt won three times last season, including in the Group 1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere at Longchamp, and has reportedly been working superbly ahead of her trip over the Irish sea. 

Can he land his first Group 1 victory of the season at the Curragh?
