14:00 – Mr Orange

MR ORANGE has looked a bit more like his old self on his last two starts at Pontefract, a track where he goes particularly well. He also won over this course and distance earlier in his career and one of his best efforts this season came when finishing fourth (beaten only two lengths) back here in May. A repeat of that form will give him every chance at this lowly level, particularly with William Pyle, who is decent value for his 5-lb claim, taking over in the saddle.

14:30 – Saleet

SALEET produced a promising first effort over this course and distance on Saturday, keeping on well under a hands-and-heels ride to pass the post only two lengths behind the winner. That form sets the standard in this line-up and the way she shaped there suggests she is sure to improve with the experience under her belt. This will be a quicker-than-ideal turnaround, but Saleet rates a very solid selection to get off the mark at the second attempt.

15:00 – Symbolize

SYMBOLIZE proved to be a disappointment when last seen finishing down the field in the Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot, but this looks an excellent opportunity for him to regain the winning thread. He is a smart performer on his day, as he showed when finding only the classy Mutasaabeq too good in a similar event over this course and distance in April. There is nothing of that calibre in opposition today and Symbolize is very hard to oppose on these terms.

15:30 – Mission Storm

MISSION STORM has shown just modest form in her three starts to date, but she appeals as a likely improver now making the switch to handicaps. She has been given an opening BHA mark of 64 and that looks a fair starting point for a filly who should be capable of much better given her useful pedigree. She is certainly in the right hands to go on improving and it’s potentially significant that she is the only runner for Roger Varian on today’s card at Thirsk.

16:00 – Brazen Idol

BRAZEN IDOL produced a career best to get his head back in front over this course and distance last time, staying on well to land the spoils by a length. The manner of that victory suggests he was full value for a 5 lb rise in the weights and it’s highly unlikely that we’ve seen the best of him yet after just eight starts. He is certainly going the right way and another bold bid seems assured in a big-field handicap where plenty of his rivals have questions to answer.

16:35 – Glory And Honour

GLORY AND HONOUR was well on top at the finish when gaining a first success on the Flat at Catterick on Tuesday, doing his best work late on to win by a length and a half. He lines up here under just a 5 lb penalty and it goes without saying that he is potentially well treated if arriving in the same sort of form after just three days off. Incidentally, he holds another entry at Redcar on Saturday and could be the type to run up a sequence for his shrewd connections.
