Invincible Spirit colt, half-brother to Listed winner and dam a Group 3 winner as a juvenile and half-sister to US Grade 1 winner. Won in fine style on debut (been green before the race) but a beaten odds on favourite on next start. More to come.
Stimulation colt, cost 32,000 gns as a yearling. Brother to a juvenile sprint winner and dam a French AW winner, a half-sister to Listed placed Private Dancer. Impressive debut winner and should improve for a yard in flying form.
Acclamation colt, cost €44,000 as a foal and £50,000 as a yearling. Full-brother to 6f juvenile winner and dam related to useful stayers. Yard's debutantes often need the run.
Dark Angel colt, cost €50,000 as a yearling. Dam a juvenile winner over this trip and half-sister to a Listed winner. Yard have a good strike-rate with their two-year-olds including debutantes and market should prove revealing.
Alhebayeb colt, cost £55,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to Group placed juvenile Kings Guest and dam a useful stayer. Yard can ready a debutante but this colt may want further than this.
Kodiac colt, cost 160,000 gns as a yearling. Dam a juvenile winner and sister to Group 3 winning sprinter. Another yard that has a good record with juveniles and market should prove revealing.
Requinto colt, cost €10,000 as a foal and €34,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to a winning sprinter. May need this run on debut. Also entered at Windsor on Monday.
Alhebayeb colt, cost €45,000 as a yearling. Brother to a winner and half-brother to six winners including sprinters. Dam has a middle distance pedigree. Interesting runner here for a yard that have a fair strike-rate with debutantes.
Oxbow colt, cost $215,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to a Listed winner Seruni and several placed at Stakes level in US. Green on debut and may do better when tried over further.
Dragon Pulse colt, cost €12,000 as a foal and £25,000 as a yearling. Dam unraced but was a half-sister to an Irish Oaks winner. Yard have been prolific so far this season so not ruled out despite fears he may want further.
