Timeform Shortlist: York, Friday May 19

2.20 Langleys Solicitors British EBF Marygate Fillies' Stakes (Listed) (1) 5f

Timeform Top Rated:
108P 12. MAIN DESIRE Michael Bell Daniel Tudhope
107 15. NEOLA Mick Channon Graham Lee
105p 10. KENTISH WALTZ E. J. O'Neill Fabrice Veron

Analyst's Verdict:
Soft ground is an unknown for pretty much all of these. Main Desire was impressive when making a winning start at Nottingham earlier this month and gets the nod for the Michael Bell team. Formidable Kitt also looked useful when justifying market support on her Newmarket debut and may prove next best ahead of French raider Kentish Waltz.
2.55 Longines Irish Champions Weekend Fillies' Stakes (Michael Seely Memorial) (Listed) (1) 7f192y

Timeform Top Rated:
115p 6. PRINCESS DE LUNE Roger Charlton Non Runner
112p 7. SIBILANCE Ralph Beckett F. M. Berry
112 5. ON HER TOES William Haggas Ryan Moore

Analyst's Verdict:
Dancing Breeze looks another exciting filly for John Gosden and can take her record to 2 from 2 up in class here. On Her Toes won't mind the ground and is respected for the Haggas/Moore combination, while there is surely more to come from Sibilance.
3.30 Betway Yorkshire Cup (Group 2) (1) 1m5f188y

Timeform Top Rated:
136 3. DARTMOUTH Sir Michael Stoute Ryan Moore
134 7. SIMPLE VERSE Ralph Beckett Oisin Murphy
133 8. ENDLESS TIME Charlie Appleby William Buick

Analyst's Verdict:
A cracking renewal of this Group 2. Dartmouth developed into a very smart performer last year and can provide the Sir Michael Stoute/Ryan Moore combination with a third win in this race in the last 4 years. Endless Time made a winning reappearance on soft last season and is a possible big threat for in-form Charlie Appleby, while a good case can also be made for Muntahaa and Simple Verse.
4.05 Betway Jorvik Handicap (2) 1m3f188y

Timeform Top Rated:
118p 5. GIBBS HILL Roger Varian Andrea Atzeni
117 2. CYMRO Tom Dascombe Richard Kingscote
116 3. FIDAAWY Sir Michael Stoute Jim Crowley

Analyst's Verdict:
Gibbs Hill looked a smart colt in the making when defying an absence at Wolverhampton 3 weeks ago and the ground shouldn't be a problem having won on soft at Sandown last summer. Cymro acts on any going and should go well with his reappearance under his belt, while Burguillos warrants respect under a penalty.
4.35 Irish EBF Frank Whittle Partnership Fillies' Handicap (3) 7f

Timeform Top Rated:
107 4. BINT ARCANO Julie Camacho Joe Doyle
105 10. DARK INTENTION Lawrence Mullaney Paul Mulrennan
105 9. COMPANY ASSET Kevin Ryan Kevin Stott

Analyst's Verdict:
It's slightly surprising to see Bint Arcano dropped 3 lb following her Catterick run 3 weeks ago as she effectively had her race ended by a troubled passage, so she is selected to take advantage. Carolinae has more to offer on grass and the booking of Ryan Moore takes the eye, with Nouvelli Dancer one to note at a bigger price given the form of her yard.
5.05 Yorkshire Equine Practice Handicap (3) 5f

Timeform Top Rated:
111 8. JACK FLASH Les Eyre Connor Murtagh (7)
106 2. DAKOTA GOLD Michael Dods Paul Mulrennan
106 3. JUSTANOTHERBOTTLE Declan Carroll Ryan Moore

Analyst's Verdict:
Comprise still has plenty of scope for improvement based on his pedigree and, based on the way he shaped at Yarmouth, he's comfortably ahead of a mark in the mid-seventies, so he gets the narrow vote to overcome last-time-out winners Jack Flash and Justanotherbottle, with the latter particularly interesting for a bang-in-form trainer who has booked Ryan Moore.
5.40 7IM Supports Cystic Fibrosis Care Stakes (Handicap) (4) 1m3f188y

Timeform Top Rated:
94p 8. BRIMHAM ROCKS Ralph Beckett F. M. Berry
93 10. DOMINATING Mark Johnston Oisin Murphy
92p 2. INVESTIGATION Andrew Balding Rob Hornby

Analyst's Verdict:
A fascinating handicap in which Swiftsure is taken to come out on top given this is the first time he's faced ground softer than good since his highly promising debut in a strong race at Salisbury in September. If he can belatedly build on that he can defy a mark of 79 at the expense of last-time-out winners Investigation and Brimham Rocks, with almost all the others having some sort of chance.
