13:58 (Ripon) Thankuappreciate

14:33 (Ripon) Milltown Lily

15:08 (Ripon) Bashosh

15:41 (Ripon) Al Karrar

16:16 (Ripon) Cubana Habana

16:51 (Ripon) Nigwa

17:26 (Ripon) Masque Of Anarchy

15:08 (Ripon) Bashosh

Bashosh can hit the mark in the Ripon Rowels Handicap after two near-misses already this term.

Second at Chelmsford in June, he was then gelded and returned to the fray at Newmarket earlier this month, finding only the in-form Dutch Decoy too good.

Beaten a short head by a race-fit rival, Bashosh deserves plenty of credit and a 2lb rise should not be enough to stop this Cambridgeshire hopeful.

15:41 (Ripon) Al Karrar

Al Karrar brings much the best form to the table in the British Stallion Studs EBF Ripon Champion Two Yrs Old Trophy.

Trained by Tom Clover, the Dark Angel colt has won and placed second in his two starts so far, earning him a rating of 107.

He had a couple of future winners behind him when triumphing by just under four lengths at Windsor in June, despite rearing at the start, prompting connections to quickly raise his sights to Group Two level for the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood.

Al Karrar rose to the challenge at the West Sussex track, chasing home Royal Scotsman to be beaten just a length and a half and while the winner did not do much to enhance the form at York's Ebor meeting, a repeat of that Goodwood effort should be good enough in this Listed contest.

16:16 (Ripon) Cubana Habana (e/w)

Cubana Habana disappointed on the all-weather when pitched into the Racing League, but should prefer a return to turf in the Queen Ethelburgas Collegiate Handicap.

Previously a Hamilton winner, with placed efforts at Thirsk either side, Cubana Habana dropped away tamely upped to 10 furlongs at Lingfield, never really looking comfortable in his task.

The Churchill gelding can be given another chance here.
