We will be doubly represented at York on Wednesday, on the opening day of the prestigious Dante meeting, where the going is currently described as good to firm.

The three year old filly Thursday's Child is now two from two, having made a winning all weather debut at Newcastle back in March, and then decisively improving on that on turf at Pontefract under a penalty 23 days ago, and earning a BHA mark of 84. Thursday's Child will face several rivals of a similar profile, and she remains open to any amount of improvement. She runs at, in the 0-95 Class 3 handicap, over seven furlongs, with Billy Garritty retaining the ride.

Piecederesistance returns from a six months break. when contesting the 0-85 handicap, over the extended one mile and three furlongs, at, where he will be partnered by Billy Garritty, who won on him at Pontefract just under two years ago. That win came off a 11lb higher mark than now, so he will start his new campaign from a very handy mark. Being York, the race is obviously ultra competitive, but the run will set him up nicely for his forth coming challenges.
