Timeform take you through the card at York on Friday.


18:00 - ZEHRAH (7) looks fairly solid at the top of the market for the talented Lewis Edmunds, having shaped as though a drop back to this sort of trip would probably be in her favour when third at Nottingham last time.

18:30 - This is devilishly tough. B FIFTY TWO (15) caught the eye here over five furlongs at the beginning of the month and though he isn't one for maximum faith given his strike-rate, he could easily run into a place here from this sort of mark. Jamie Spencer looks a good match for penalised hold-up horse FOXY FOREVER (1). He is unbeaten at the track and should be well suited by a well-run race. Finally, FIELDSMAN (8) has dropped to a good mark and is interesting now trying six furlongs for the first time (usually races at seven).

19:00 - The race that FORTUNE'S PEARL (1) won at Chepstow earlier this month wasn't a strong one, but Andrew Balding's newcomers often improve for their first outing, and he should run well here despite his penalty.

19:30 - ROSENTAL (7) is a winner in this grade already (in France) and escapes a penalty for that win (unlike Ajman Princess). She hasn't had a great deal of racing for her age, and is the sort who could have a bit more to offer this season now she has her conditions (kept away from quick ground). AIM TO PLEASE (2) is also interesting now stepping up to a trip which should suit her on breeding and arriving on the back of a good fifth in a Group 2 last time.

20:00 - CALDER PRINCE (7) is still on a good mark on the pick of his three-year-old form after being raised 4 lb for his win at Haydock last time, while he also benefits from Paddy Pilley's 5 lb claim here, so he should run well provided he doesn't do too much in front. He looks a slightly more solid option than Kharbetation, though he will be feared if entering the stalls this time.

20:30 - Dakota Gold is appealing in terms of his profile, but it would have been good to see his second at Redcar last time work out a bit better, and this is quite a competitive race with the likes of SHEEPSCAR LAD (10) and BATTEN THE HATCHES (4) both arriving in winning form.

Placepot permutation:

18:00 - 7
18:30 - 1, 8, 15
19:00 - 1
19:30 - 2, 7
