Timeform bring you three to back at Salisbury on Thursday

Timeform on Israr

The beautifully-bred Israr appeals as a colt destined for better things and can maintain his unbeaten record at Salisbury on Thursday - get Timeform's selections for the evening meeting here.

NAP: Potentially smart Israr can prove too strong

Israr - 14:57 Salisbury

Israr has an excellent pedigree - by champion sprinter Muhaarar and out of the same connections' Oaks winner Taghrooda - and he overcame considerable inexperience to make a winning debut at Doncaster earlier this month. He doesn't hold any fancy entries but is clearly a very talented colt, the type to excel over middle distances next year, and he is fully expected to follow up under a penalty before moving up in class.

Next Best: Endowed still ahead of his mark

Endowed - 16:07 Salisbury

Endowed lost his way for Mick Appleby, but as a result has fallen to an attractive mark, and took advantage of that on just his third start for Tony Carroll at Brighton last month. That was just an ordinary race, but he was well backed to resume winning ways, and pulled clear of the runner-up in the process. A subsequent 2 lb rise is more than fair and he remains well treated on his old form, so is a confident selection to follow up.

Each Way: Majestic Dawn can reward each-way backers

Majestic Dawn - 16:42 Salisbury

Last year's Cambridgeshire winner Majestic Dawn had to miss this year's renewal because of fast ground, but conditions should be suitable here and he could be hard to catch. He was last seen running a cracker in the Rose of Lancaster Stakes at Haydock and should find this assignment much easier.
