Timeform pick out their three best bets from Thirsk on Friday...

"She improved for the longer trip last time, as you'd expect from her breeding, and can make it third time lucky."

Timeform on Toffee Galore

TOFFEE GALORE - 14:30 Thirsk

TOFFEE GALORE likely has more to come and can make the most of the weight she receives from previous-winners Divinity and Sootability. She improved for the longer trip last time, as you'd expect from her breeding, and can make it third time lucky. Timeform 'Horse In Focus' Blue Gardenia showed promise on her debut and is another to consider in an interesting heat.

PEACHEY CARNEHAN - 15:40 Thirsk

PEACHEY CARNEHAN is stepping back in the right direction and could be ready to strike again. He has had plenty of racing but ran his best race of 2018 when third over C&D last time, and the strong pace that looks likely here should suit. Munfallet is worth a look on his first start for Adrian Nicholls, while Mr Strutter and Tadaany are respected also.

DAKOTA GOLD - 16:45 Thirsk

Course winner DAKOTA GOLD is 1 lb lower than when second in the Great St Wilfrid a fortnight ago and has obvious claims if in the same form now. He is potentially very well treated on the pick of his three-year-old form and did shape well last time. Dalton is on the upgrade and demands attention. Big Tour and Wentworth Falls merit consideration also.
