First foal by Sixties Icon out of a maiden dam (Outside Art). Doing all of his best work late on debut at Lingfield last month (1m2f) when finishing fifth of eight to Desert Wind. Up in trip.
Nathaniel gelding out of a Green Desert mare who fetched 50,000 gns as a yearling. Looked in need of the race; slowly away, green and always in the rear, on debut at Lingfield last month (7f). Takes a huge hike in trip.
Unraced Cape Cross gelding out of the French 1m2f to 1m4f winner Everglades. Second foal with an appealing pedigree, so the market will be helpful in establishing his prospects.
Couldn't put the figures together on debut at Kempton last month when trailing home last of eight to Mercer's Troop (1m4f maiden). By Dylan Thomas out of a hurdle-winning dam, so perhaps he'll need more time and experience.
Had plenty of chances to break her duck for previous trainer John Gosden, but starts off life elsewhere having been sold for 30,000 gns last week. Her mark in the high 70's suggests she'll be competitive, but will she stay this longer trip?
Yeats filly who slowly appears to be putting it all in place as she steps up to a more suitable trip. Has valuable course experience, and was only beaten a nose and a head on her first try over this trip at Kempton latest.
75,000 gns yearling by Dansili who has appeared clueless at the start on each of her first two outings. Moves away from Lingfield now and goes up further in trip, and should have a role to play if breaking more professionally.
