Timeform take you through the card at Thirsk on Sunday.


14:15 - BOGSNOG (6) doesn't make great appeal at his current odds for betting purposes, but does look a solid Placepot option in the opener, having already shown himself to be back in form for Ruth Carr this season. He won at Wolverhampton in March, and shaped better than the bare result at Catterick last time (hampered late on). From the same mark, he should be competitive here.

14:45 - MABS CROSS (11) may have only cost £3,000 as a yearling, but she has a good pedigree and showed ability on debut at Pontefract earlier this month, shaping much better than than the bare result having raced greenly/well off the pace and having been denied a run over a furlong out. She should come on for that and looks the one to be with.

15:15 - JUDY WOODS (1) pulled clear with a fellow improver on her reappearance at Redcar earlier this season and this could be a good bit of placement by her connections, given that she is able to race in the same grade of race here (0-60).

15:45 - REGAL DECREE (10) did best of the high-drawn runners when third at Redcar on his reappearance earlier this month (having been gelded over the winter) and he should give a good account. At a bigger price TROIS BON AMIS (2) makes some appeal on her handicap debut, having shown a bit in maidens last season.

16:15 - REMBRANT (1) has made a positive start for his in-form yard, and it wouldn't be a big surprise if he had more to offer following his good second at Redcar last time. Elsewhere WHITECLIFF PARK (11) should be suited by a return to this trip and also makes appeal for Brian Ellison.

16:45 - ZANETTO (3) doesn't make much appeal on his recent form figures, not even deserving of a rating in fact, after his efforts at the back-end of last season. However, he has run well fresh on three of his four reappearances, and with John Quinn's runners in good form, he makes some appeal. NAGGERS (2) has few miles on the clock for a six-year-old, and could have more to offer.

17:15 - Secret Advisor catches the eye on breeding, by Dubawi and out of a Group 3-winning mare, and he should provide the standard-setting Materialist with a race here in what looks an interesting contest.

17:45 - Tricky stuff to end the card. Barwell is bred to be better than a mark of 63 and could have been let in lightly by the handicapper, though he isn't the only unexposed type in the race, with the likes of Helovaplan and True Romance also making their handicap debuts here.


Win back ZANETTO in the 16:45
