Didn't show improvement from his first to second starts when well-beaten over 6f on turf. Steps up in trip in a first-time hood here and should be capable of a better showing, perhaps without being one of the main players.
Last of the six runners home on debut at Wolverhampton last time out but ran very green and still wasn't beaten all that far. Every chance that he can put in a much better showing on this second start.
Slightly better on his second start at Nottingham last time out, but that wasn't too difficult to achieve given how poorly he ran on debut. Another big step forward needed on this AW debut.
Ran a fair race on debut to finish fifth at Kempton under this jockey. Shaped as if there should be more to come and he makes his second start here under the care of a top trainer.
Showed little on debut at Newmarket last time out, when beaten 17L into 13th at odds of 50/1. Needs to improve plenty for the application of a first-time hood.
Beaten only 3L on debut at at Goodwood last time over 6f when looking like he should definitely stay further. Off since June but not ruled out over this longer trip.
Has finished tenth in two races over C&D so far, and though this looks potentially easier he needs to find much more to get competitive, and as a half-brother to Lillie Langtry runner-up Dubka may be better over further in time.
Not disgraced at odds of 66/1 on debut at Wolverhampton last time out, finishing fourth of the six runners. Could improve from that to possibly fill a place.
Dansili colt and a half-brother to 6f Group 3 winner Bye Bye Birdie as well as another winner over 7f. Goes for a top trainer and the market should guide on debut.
Mount Nelson colt out of a dam who was a once-raced maiden in Germany, Interesting connections but would need to attract plenty of market support to be of interest on debut.
Nathaniel colt, the fifth foal of a Group-placed mare at two, who has also produced a juvenile winner who went on to be rated 100 at her peak. The market should tell us more.
