Heartbreak City easy winner of the Betfred Ebor at York
EASY: McNamara dominated the race at York
Tony Martin’s charge won at this meeting last year in the Fine Equinity Handicap over two miles and he was prepared perfectly for the Knavesmire once again by his wily handler, who also trained the third home, Quick Jack.
Always travelling noticeably well in the hands of his 5lb claimer, Heartbreak City (15-2) scooted home to win easily, by four lengths, from the running-on Shrewd (12-1).
Quick Jack (10-1) was third with Battersea (16-1) fourth.
Martin said: “The young man on him was sheer brilliance.
“Lester Piggott wouldn’t have been as good. It was a brilliant performance by the lad.
