14:15 (Thirsk) American Style

American Style left his debut effort well behind when runner-up to the subsequent Chesham Stakes (Listed) second at Leicester last month.

Kevin Ryan-trained juveniles have been in good form lately and he may get off the mark at the third attempt in the British Ebf Restricted Novice Stakes.

Bella Love could go close if building on her pleasing debut second at Wetherby.

Stirrup Cup finished second over six furlongs at Carlisle last time and cannot be ignored, while Cugini also warrants consideration.


15:15 (Thirsk) The Reverend

The Reverend is interesting on his return to action in the British EBF Novice Stakes.

He posted a stylish success on his only two-year-old start, with a degree of ease about that win.

A half-brother to Group Three winner Angel Power, The Reverend could be a useful prospect.


15:45 (Thirsk) Savvy Warrior


Savvy Warrior can build on a recent success as he tackles the first division of the Weatherbys ePassport Handicap.

Out of luck in four juvenile starts, the three-year-old showed initial promise over a mile on his seasonal return in April, but upped to 10 furlongs at Pontefract the following month he clearly did not stay.

Trainer Sean Woods adopted a new plan after that, moving down to seven furlongs at Wetherby last month – a decision which yielded an immediate return with a one-and-a-half-length victory.

The win should have given him a nice confidence boost and even though he is saddled with an extra 4lb this time, Savvy Warrior can prove up to the task.


17:25 (Thirsk) Willow Baby

Willow Baby caught the eye with an unlucky fifth over five furlongs at Ripon.

A further 2lb drop in weights might help his chances and a breakthrough success looks around the corner now stepping back up to six furlongs in the Great Prices On Bresbet.Com Handicap.

Calafrio must enter calculations after his good second tackling track and trip. Foreseeable Future needs to be considered having produced a third-placed finish attempting five furlongs at Ripon.
