Cost €31,000 as a yearling and is closely related to the useful Outback Ruler a winner at up to a mile and a half-sister to several winners.Stable in fine form and will come on for her third of 11, not beaten far, on her second run at here last month.
Mark Johnston filly. By Epaulette, dual 7f G1 winner in Australia, 1/2 bro to top-class Helmet; first 2yos 2017. Not given hard time, when beaten, on debut in Chepstow novice auction stakes. More to come.
Made a nice enough debut when third to two better fancied opponents at Pontefract, before beaten just a nose, second of five in Hamilton novice stakes over 6f.
Invincible Spirit filly bought for 130,000 gns at the breeze-up sales in April. Half-sister to a number of winners. Sent off at 100/30 on debut, but lost all chance when slipping on leaving the stalls. Still received a bit of education, running well to finish fifth of 13.
15,000 gns yearling who is a half-sister to 5f juvenile winner Sleeper King. Easy to back on debut at Thirsk over 6f, before fourth of eight but not beaten far in Beverley, 5f novice auction stakes. Back up in trip here.
Lilbourne Lad filly cost €2,500 as a foal in November 2015. Dam a three time winner in France. Fourth of eight on debut in Doncaster novice stakes over 6f.
Still a maiden after six starts and turned over at odds-on over 6f at Ripon (good) last month. Had earlier finished a 6L 12th in the Group 2 Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot. Ground could have been against the filly last day.
Unraced daughter of Multiplex, who was useful multiple 7-8f winner at 2-4 in France, from excellent family; sire of winners both codes.
Dawn Approach filly, cost 70,000 gns as a yearling. Half-sister to useful sprinter Shamsaya and dam placed in Listed company. Pulled too hard on debut in Newmarket novice stakes, when fourth of six, well beaten.
Unraced daughter of Intense Focus, tough, Gr1-winning 2yo from high-class family, by Giant's Causeway; fair start with early crops.
Decent pedigree, though largely one that suggests at least 7f and more likely further than a mile will be her trip eventually. Weakened markedly on debut in Wetherby extended 5f on soft in June.
