16:05 York Sat 16 June 2018
Scored on his second start for this yard. His best form for Mark Johnston leaves room for more to come even given a rise in the weights.
Unlucky to be drawn wide last time having got caught in a pocket on previous start. Has been attracting plenty of support and may fulfil expectations soon if not here.
Didn't back up Carlisle win when upped in class last start and best watched in a tougher grade once again. Also entered 3:30 York Friday.
Has winning form on soft ground but surpassed anything she had done previously when romping home on stable debut. Up in class but has form in this grade and yard in form.
Best efforts have come on soft gorund and ran well for in-form yard when third at Doncaster in April over a mile. Has won for this apprentice but chance would be enhanced by any rain.
Game individual from a very good small yard. On a fair mark at present and positives to be taken from his comeback run. Chances will deteriorate if he going should turn soft.
C&D winner from an in form yard. Shaped well here last time when looking ready for this step up in trip and handles any going.
Scored over a stiff mile last time and his previous form suggests this trip will be no problem. Up in the weights but has form off higher. There is more to come now that new yard have discovered how to ride him.
A 1-17 record belies some good efforts in defeat and he has twice gone close off this mark. New trip an unknown but he was staying on well at Wetherby. Cheekpieces tried this time.
Took advantage of a good mark to score at Pontefract. Well suited to that track so questions to answer here off a tougher mark and up in class.
Strong traveller who was just denied on penultimate start and who gave another good account last week. This promises to be tougher as he steps up in class off a higher mark. Winless since 2016.
Often improves for his first few runs of the year so could step up on his recent efforts here. However, while he has some form on a range of going, he's generally best on softer ground..
Musselburgh and Beverley specialist who has been running consistently to a level just below his best this term.
Form of his Redcar victory may mount to little but he surpassed it at Newmarket next time. Lightly raced and makes some appeal of this mark.
His last three wins have come at 6f and he has plenty to prove over this trip and off this weight.
