Timeform take you through the card at Thirsk on Wednesday...

"...he still impressed with the manner of his win..."

Timeform Aljady

14:20 - The form of IMMOKALEE's (13) debut third at Beverley in April has worked out particularly well (the fourth has since won three times, including the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot) and, though it is a slight concern we haven't seen her since, she is worth chancing to build on that promise. Prince Elzaam looks the likely danger having also shaped well on first start and is open to progress now.

14:50 - This doesn't look the strongest race, and INDUCT (3) is taken to build on the promise he has shown in two starts to date, and open his account dropped in grade. He finished second to a subsequent winner at Brighton last time, and deserved a bit of extra credit, likely to have been a much clearer cut second if not being messed about. The blinkers replace cheekpieces here and he is fancied to get the better of Go Annie Go who is the only other with any notable form.

15:20 - A competitive event despite the field size, and a chance is taken on NORMAL EQUILIBRIUM (2), who is on a workable mark and could step up on an encouraging reappearance. The yard are also in good form at present and he should have conditions in his favour. Royal Brave is a consistent sort and he shouldn't be far away.

15:50 - The form of ALJADY's (7) debut win last season worked out well, and he progressed again to make a winning reappearance at Redcar last month to maintain his unbeaten record. Admittedly, the runner-up wasn't at her best, but he still impressed with the manner of his win, taking a strong hold early and finding plenty in the closing stages. He should continue progressing and is fancied to complete a hat-trick. Muscika shaped well last time and has been well backed this morning and could prove the biggest danger.

16:20 - HISTORY WRITER (6) gets weight off all his notable rivals and wouldn't need to improve much on his excellent second at Nottingham last time to get off the mark. Elerfaan already looks a bargain for connections and, given his pedigree, should have a good deal more to come, while New Show can't be dismissed given the impression he made on debut.

16:50 - MUNFALLET (1) takes a drop in grade here despite hinting that a return to form could be round the corner a couple of times this season, so it's worth taking a chance that he can dominate this from the outset and prove tough to pass. Last-time-out winners Mr Strutter and Someone Exciting are both dangers along with the well treated Arnold.

17:20 - BIBBIDIBOBBIDIBOO (9) has been in top form all season and would have landed the hat-trick last time had she not bumped into one, so she's taken to get back to winning ways here, with Munthany expected to continue his own good spell of form and Rastacap respected dropping into a 0-70 having been merely ticking over in a higher grade.
