Half-brother to 6f winner Lady Horatia and 2-year-old 7f winner Auxiliary. Dam was an unraced half-sister to useful 1½m winner Khalafiya. Quite well drawn here if ready to go although the yard is 0/2 with juveniles so far this year.

29-2OR:
3/1
Nicely drawn debutante from a yard that are 1/3 with their juveniles this year and can be relied on to have some decent juveniles each year. Bred to be sharp and one to be interested in here.

Half-brother to three winners including useful winner up to 1m Queen's Daughter. Yard yet to have a juvenile winner this season but did hit a near 15% strike-rate last year with their two-year-olds. This one isn't the best drawn though and might find life difficult from this draw.

This yard have made a scintillating start to the season with their juveniles with their current record standing at 7/16 (six of the first time out). Half-brother to several winners, including 2-year-old 7f winner Winter Rose and the yard have won this race the last two years and has the ideal number one draw here.

Yard have yet to have a juvenile winner this season (0/7) having clocked up 94 in this age group last year. Made a moderate start to his career and not well drawn here and showing his inexperience but is open to improvement.

Only filly in the field who is a half-sister to smart 5f/6f winner High On Life and useful 2-year-old 6f winner Vibrant Chords. Looks to be the better of the two hopes from this yard and worth watching this speedily bred filly in the market.

Betting

Forecast

Sinaloa (2/1), Palmer (3/1), Gisele's Angel (4/1), Ventura Knight (8/1), Queen's Sargent (17/2), Bee Machine (14/1), Lord Riddiford (16/1), Kyleque (20/1), Eyes of Fire (25/1), Collingham Park (33/1), Squirrelheed (33/1), Rockesbury (100/1), Afterthisone (100/1)

Verdict

This looks to be a good juvenile contest with some yards that have had success in this sphere represented but it’s hard to look past the Fahey juveniles at the moment with SINALOA having claims that are hard to ignore. Others to note are Palmer and Lord Riddiford both from yards that are good with juveniles. Ventura Knight is a likely improver from a yard that has made a slower start than usual with their juveniles while Queens Sargeant (not well drawn) and Giseles Angel have to be considered in a race with depth.
  1. Sinaloa
  2. Palmer
  3. Gisele's Angel
