2021 Garrowby Stakes Tips

Gulliver has won three of his ten starts here on the Knavesmire, and returned to form with a strong second in the Stewards' Cup, going down by just a neck to Commanche Falls. David O'Meara's sprinter is yet to make the frame in seven starts in pattern company though, and he'd prefer the ground to be a little softer.

Fivethousandtoone looked a potential star last season and has a three-year-old allowance on his side today. So far, though, he's been unable to build on the promise he showed in 2020 and I can't see this drop back to six furlongs being beneficial.

For me, this is all about the top two in the betting. Tabdeeb is the proven class angle, having won Listed and Group Three prizes last season, while placing on all three of his starts so far this season.

I'd still rather side with the talented GREAT AMBASSADOR, who's been progressing nicely since winning on his reappearance at Kempton. 

Ed Walker's four-year-old was backed into 8/1 for the Steward's Cup on the back of a strong third behind Chil Chil at Newmarket. Great Ambassador was beaten a length back in third at Goodwood, but ran a cracker from the wrong part of the track and was certainly the runner to take out of that lucrative handicap.

Richard Kingscote then guided Great Ambassador to a convincing victory at Newmarket, beating Rathbone and dangerous three-year-olds like Jumby and First Folio with apparent ease. I'm confident he'll take this step up to Listed company in his stride, and Great Ambassador should take all the beating.


Great Ambassador looks to be the one to side with in Sunday's feature at York.
