There is plenty of decent action at York on Saturday and Racing Post tipster Robbie Wilders delivers his three best bets.

2.00 York - Aramaic @ 7/1

It looks an interesting decision from William Haggas to turn ARAMAIC out again in the mile handicap that opens the card at York after he only ran seven days ago. 

Aramaic was sent off a 5/1 chance on his first start for 608 days in a competitive 1m2f handicap at this track in May, and ran perfectly respectably in sixth.

The son of Le Havre then failed to justify favouritism when fourth at Sandown, but still improved his RPR and that happened once more when he produced another solid effort at the Esher track last weekend.

I am confident a mark of 91 undersells this prominent racer's ability, and he might just be able to show that dropped back to a mile from a decent draw in stall two and with rain forecast to hit the Knavesmire.

Aramaic's pedigree is all about soft ground and he could take some pegging back on the front end.

Robbie Wilders' tip:

Aramaic @ 7/1 - 1pt each-way

2.35 York - Queen Me @ 6/1

Three-year-old QUEEN ME is the one I am siding with in the Listed City Walls Stakes over five furlongs.

This daughter of Dubawi is out of Queen Kindly, who landed the Lowther here a few years back, and she almost emulated her dam by plundering the same race in her juvenile season.

Queen Me was trained to get a mile at the beginning of this season but failed to stay that distance in the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket, and subsequently dropped to six furlongs in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot.

Her effort, in which she finished a three-length sixth to July Cup favourite Shaquille after racing keenly, was a fine effort for one so inexperienced.

Now she drops to the minimum trip in a race with loads of pace-setters, I could see this free-goer producing an even better effort at a track the family loves, and the forecast rain is of limited concern for her judging by her pedigree.

I fancy Queen Me to be putting in her best work late and picking off the prominent racers under Andrea Atzeni. Back her each-way with four places available.

Robbie Wilders' tip:

Queen Me @ 6/1 - 1pt each-way

3.10 York - Millebosc @ 8/1

I hope William Haggas enjoys a fruitful day at York as the one I am leaning towards in the John Smith's Cup is MILLEBOSC on his second run for the yard and first after a gelding operation.

Given the plethora of middle-distance types that Haggas trains who could have run here, I'm assuming this has been the long-term plan for Millebosc despite the 227-day absence.

You don't have to scroll too far down Millebosc's form profile to find an excellent third to top-class pair St Mark's Basilica and Sealiway in the 2021 Prix du Jockey Club for former connections, a race in which he recorded an RPR of 116.

The selection races off a potentially lenient mark of 97 now and caught the eye on his first run for Haggas at Lingfield in November, having raced six wide round the home turn of that tight-turning track.

Robbie Wilders' tip:

Millebosc @ 8/1 - 1pt each-way
