13:45 (York) Silencer

14:20 (York) Pink Crystal

14:55 (York) Gale Force Maya

15:30 (York) Dare To Hope

16:05 (York) The Predictor

16:40 (York) Eeetee

17:15 (York) Lullaby Bay

14:20 (York) Pink Crystal

Pink Crystal looks the one to be with in the John And Judith Marshall Memorial Handicap at York.

The William Haggas-trained three-year-old has been in great form this year and went to the Ebor meeting on a hat-trick, after wins at Thirsk and Brighton.

Those victories were over six furlongs and she dropped back to five in search of the three-timer, and off a career-high mark.

She came unstuck, but not without giving a good account and in fact everything she did suggests this return to six furlongs is what she needs.

Always travelling well, she was just denied a completely clear passage at one stage, at which time the bird had flown. Once she got between horses she stayed on strongly and it will disappointing if she cannot regain the winning thread, even with another 3lb to carry.

15:30 (York) Dare To Hope

Richard Fahey will be full of hope for Dare To Hope in the Federation Of Bloodstock Agents Nursery Handicap.

Rightly so, too, as although he has only has one win on debut to show from his five runs to date, he has not done a lot wrong.

That was evidenced last time out in the big sales race here when a close fourth to Shouldvebeenaring, who has since won the Listed Ripon Two Yrs Old Trophy.

The hat-trick seeking Signora Camacho is an obvious threat to the selection, while King's Crown and Family Ties are others to note.

17:15 (York) Lullaby Bay

Lullaby Bay has not been seen since June, but the booking of Harry Davies suggests a good run can be expected from Karl Burke's runner in the Firmament Apprentice Handicap.

Mattice didn't get the best of starts at Newcastle but he came home well and was just denied on the line so, off 2lb higher, Tim Easterby's sprinter is fancied to go one better.

Mytilda ran as well as could be expected after a year off at Chester and she is interesting at a price.
