Tebee's Oasis is a half-sister to a useful 1m2f winner and is an interesting newcomer as is Emerging, who cost 65,000gns as a yearling though may need further than this. But this looks a warm maiden and several have already shown signs of promise. SAVED BY THE BELL's second at Sandown in September looks decent form and Brian Meehan's colt can go one better at the main expense of El Buen Turista, who was staying on over 7f here on his debut. Plenum, Silver Dixie and Sweet Force are all likely to improve on their initial efforts.
