Timeform on Falathaat

INSANIA - 14:00 Redcar

It probably wasn't a particularly strong race in which INSANIA opened her account at Thirsk, but she did the job well, and 3 lb clear of the field on weight-adjusted ratings here, it would be no surprise if she proved capable of following up under a penalty. Knightcap's debut effort was encouraging and there were excuses at Beverley next time. She is in with an each-way shout, but Insania may have most to fear from likely-looking newcomers Don Ramiro and Great Aspirations.

FALATHAAT - 15:35 Redcar

FALATHAAT stepped up on her debut form when last seen finishing second at Wolverhampton in September, no match for the winner - who gave the form a boost when winning in listed company last-time-out - but keeping on well to put three lengths between herself and the third. That form is amongst the best on offer in this line-up, and with further improvement on the cards, she rates a confident selection for the Saeed bin Suroor yard that continues in good heart, with six winners and seven seconds from its last 30 runners at the time of writing. The newcomer Soft Cover could be the one to give the selection most to do.

MERRY BANTER - 16:05 Redcar

A pacey front-runner, MERRY BANTER ended 2018 with an all-the-way victory over C&D and would appear to have plenty in her favour again here from only 1 lb higher, having shaped as though she's close to concert pitch when third at Epsom last month. Bowson Fred has a good chance of reversing recent Thirsk placings with Makanah on these revised terms, but he's on a long losing run and, in any case, the latter doesn't have that many miles on the clock and is feared most.
