Expection of Snow

YORK EBOR MEETING: The opening day brings an opportunity for a hardy turf campaigner to establish a popular front
Ante-post punters on the Ebor, who had a setback with the withdrawal of the fancied Celeric at the weekend, may still have something to cheer in tomorrow's race as Ambassador and Snow Princess, who had both been considered doubtful, are now likely to run.

The Barry Hills-trained Ambassador will have Willie Carson in the saddle, while Snow Princess's trainer, Lord Huntingdon, who had been worried that underfoot conditions would be too firm for the filly, walked the course yesterday and was pleased with what he found.

EBOR HANDICAP Ladbrokes: 4-1 Harbour Dues, 7-1 Beauchamp Jade, 8-1 Ambassador, 10-1 Snow Princess & Clerkenwell, 12-1 Better Offer, Corradini & Foundry Lane, 14-1 Top Cees, 16-1 Prussian Blue, Desert Frolic & Midnight Legend, 20-1 others
