(Please be aware selections could become non-runners after article's first publication)


14:15 (Thirsk) Atherstone Warrior

Atherstone Warrior was beaten less than two lengths when a staying-on fourth of 15 in the Brocklesby and can build on that by winning the Best Prices Guaranteed Daily At Vickers.Bet Maiden Stakes.

The Alice Haynes-trained colt is a half-brother to three winners and his dam was a juvenile scorer, so he ticks plenty of boxes.


15:15 (Thirsk) Burj Malinka

Burj Malinka showed plenty of ability on testing going at Doncaster when a good fourth tackling a higher graded five furlong handicap. Can build on that effort in the Water Moon Handicap.

Selby's Pride handles soft ground. Posted a smart second two starts ago at Newcastle over six furlongs and should be included.

Dazy Mazy ran with credit at Wolverhampton two outings back finishing a decent fourth in a 6f handicap and is of interest.


16:45 (Thirsk) Catton Lady

Catton Lady hails from a good family and showed plenty of promise at two, prevailing on her Carlisle debut and being placed twice at Pontefract.

With Mick and David Easterby going along nicely of late, it would be no surprise to see this likeable filly go well on her seasonal reappearance in the Ruby Lodge Care Home In Thirsk Handicap.


17:45 (Thirsk) Ey Up Its Jazz

Ey Up Its Jazz went well here delivering last outing of the season in September finishing second tackling a higher level course and distance handicap. Enjoys soft going and holds every chance resuming.

Russco produced a solid fourth on testing ground last week at Catterick over seven furlongs. Big chance set to improve for that effort.

End Zone found success by a nose attempting this handicap grade and journey at Ayr during September and holds appeal.


Thirsk tips in fill:

THIRSK: 2.15 Atherstone Warrior, 2.45 A Gift Of Love, 3.15 Burj Malinka, 3.45 Mattella, 4.15 Soul Seeker, 4.45 Catton Lady, 5.15 Hostelry, 5.45 Ey Up Its Jazz.
