Anita Chambers is sticking with Limato at York on Sunday and she has a selection for every race in the UK and Ireland.

Limato sets an undeniable standard in the Ryedale House Garrowby Stakes at York.

The Henry Candy-trained six-year-old has been a stalwart of the big-race scene for what seems an age now, and rediscovered the winning touch at Newmarket recently.

His trainer had opted to drop him in class at Headquarters and was rewarded with a confidence-boosting success for the former July Cup winner.

He stays at Listed level for what will be just his second visit to the Knavesmire, with his only other foray from his Wantage base having resulted in a two-length defeat to Mecca's Angel in the Nunthorpe Stakes of 2016.

A trip to the Breeders' Cup could well be on the agenda if he can build further on that Newmarket win.

Rise Hall sprang a 20-1 shock when winning a Salisbury novice event last time out and can continue on an upward curve in the Hanson Springs Handicap.

Considering he is a Frankel half-brother to the likes of Ladies Are Forever and Hoof It, Rise Hall looked like being a bit disappointing when well beaten on his first two starts.

However, the application of blinkers seemed to work the oracle at Salisbury and while that was hardly a strong event, Rise Hall won by nine lengths in a canter and has perhaps turned the corner now.

Martyn Meade steps him up in trip, but 10 furlongs may not be beyond his compass judged on his strong-running recent victory.

Elysees is the pick in the Little Green Rascals Children's Nurseries Handicap.

He lacked the necessary turn of pace to take a hand in the finish when third over 14 furlongs at Sandown on his most recent start, so Alan King's decision to try two miles could make good sense.

Sensible Friend is a relatively rare National Hunt runner for Amanda Perrett in the Winnie Leadbetter Birthday Handicap Hurdle at Fontwell.

He has dropped down the weights a little in recent weeks and looked as though a drop back from two miles and five furlongs would suit when a solid second here last month.

Tackling two furlongs less now, Sensible Friend looks a fair proposition.

Bold Image made a perfect debut for Dan Skelton last month and can make it two wins in as many starts in the NetBet Sport Mares' Handicap Hurdle.

Formerly trained by Suzy Smith, Bold Image appears to have benefited from a chance in scenery and can hit the mark again.
