3,000 gns purchase will improve on his debut effort but probably not enough to prove good enough at this level.

Won a couple of Hexham bumpers in early 2015, but has failed to complete in three starts over obstacles since. Last of nine here on Flat debut and facing another stiff test.

Makes little appeal on pedigree being by a sprinter out of a dam who was unplaced in bumpers and related to National Hunt stayers.

Half-sister to dual winner Another Lincolnday (1m3f and 2m1f winner). Looked in need of the experience on debut and faces another tough test.

Comfortable winner last time and from a yard with a fine record here. This is much stronger and with the runner-up's yard represented by the obvious "form horse," New Graduate, the market will be informative.

Hails from family of Cheveley Park winner Wannabe Grand, and dam has produced several winners. Not seen since scoring in October. Her nearest pursuers have not been since, but the fourth and sixth have come out and won so the from has substance.

50,000 guineas colt by star Australian sire Sepoy. Dam closely related to US graded stakes winner. Makes racecourse debut in a hot contest.

Half-brother to three winners for this stable including Sound Advice who won 10 races. Still doubtful he will be up to this level on debut.

Finished clear of the third here on debut behind a 100-rated winner. Sets the clear standard on that form with the promise of improvement to come.

Midfield on racecourse debut but showed some ability and will doubtless improve. Stable have a modest strike rate here and others preferred.

Zebedee gelding, cost 40,000 gns as a foal and 60,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to four winners including a US Grade 2 winner. Only beat one home on debut and finds himself in an even stronger heat this time.

Fast Company gelding whose dam was an unraced half-sister to smart winner up to 6f Utmost Respect. Outpaced on debut and in an even better contest this time.

Failed to make a significant impression on debut and needs to have learnt a lot for the experience to make her presence felt.

55,000 gns daughter of Zoffany and half-sister to a winning Swedish sprinter and a modest hurdler. In deep on debut and best watched for the future.

Forecast

New Graduate (5/6), Martineo (11/4), Preening (11/2), Beeno (12/1), Culdrose (14/1), Cashel (20/1), Player's Luck (25/1), Assure (40/1), Taste Of Paradise (50/1), Home Before Dusk (66/1), Towton (80/1), My Cherokee (100/1), Emperor Sakhee (100/1), Unique Company (100/1), Mullion Dreams (100/1)

Verdict

Willie Haggas and Daniel Tudhope are a combination to note and the stable do well here. Martineo won handsomely last time but ran to a rating that would put him in the mid-80s at best. In contrast NEW GRADUATE forced a 100-rated rival to pull out all the stops here on debut when finishing well clear of the third. The winner has upheld the form since and the selection would be expected to improve for the experience. It will take something above-average to beat him. The form of Preening's Kempton success has been boosted since but she will need to arrive fit and ready and she probably wants further.
