Very limited ability shown in 10 starts to date and now has an official rating of just 44. Unseated rider latest and very hard to fancy.
Belated debut for this son of Hail who won just once, in a Clonmel maiden for Aidan O'Brien. Half-brother to a winner in Qatar. Hardly appealing pedigree but trainer in good form so not dismissed.
Kodiac gelding hasn't run since a close sixth in a valuable sales race at the Curragh on just his second start. Obviously had issues but on that form would be a leading contender so all about how fit he is.
Returned from an 11-month absence with a commendable third at Southwell last month. That form gives him an each-way chance and he ought to improve for the run too.
€70,000 two-year old purchase by Holy Roman Emperor is a half-brother to two winners in France. Trainer knows the time of day so market support would be interesting.
Not seemed to stay in 1m5f bumpers this Autumn so forced to switch to the flat. This trip should suit but how much ability he possesses at this rate is hard to gauge.
Very well bred and very expensive but not looked like he will live up to billing with disappointing efforts at Wolverhampton and Lingfield. Would hope he can improve but certainly needs to.
Switched to the flat from bumpers but tailed off in both starts since on the AW. Trip gradually decreasing but hard to fancy her.
Hooded and ran green when well beaten fifth on debut. Some late headway so more to come perhaps but quick turnaround doesn't give her much time to learn.
Duke Of Marmalade newcomer is closely related to three winners, all of which won on AW. Trainer does quite well on AW so not ruled out on belated debut.
£12,000 yearling by Compton Place is a half-sister to four winners from 6f-1m. Trainer does well enough here to watch the market for her.
Staying on fourth latest at Lingfield (Sanam ninth) was a promising effort for one whose future may lie over further. Fact she remains at 1m is a worry and perhaps a handicap over further could be the plan next time.
Promise in first three starts (two on AW) although she didn't last 1m2f in the latter two. Tailed off latest back in May so presumably something amiss. Changed hands now but claims if she's sharp enough.
