€31,000 yearling. Third foal of an unraced half-sister to US 5½f-1m dirt winner Jade Necklace and AW winners Strike The Green (6f) and Waldorf (1m½f), out of 5f winner. Nice enough pedigree and one to note in the market.
30,000gns yearling. Fifth foal. Half-brother to 6f-7f winner Notalot (inc. at two/Qatar) and 5f/7f two-year-old winner Danot, out of unraced full-sister to 6f Group 2 winner Prime Defender. Stable's juveniles in cracking form so could go very well.
30,000gns yearling. Third foal. Half-brother to French 1m juvenile winner Castlewarden, out of an unraced half-sister to 1m6f Listed winner Twitch. arket check advised but pedigree suggests he will be better over further.
€28,000 yearling. First foal. Dam French 1m3f winner, out of 5f two-year-old Listed winner, closely related to 1m Group 3 winner Marine Bleue. Appears to be second string on jockey bookings.
19,000gns foal, 25,000gns yearling. Third foal, dam unplaced 1m2f-1m4f maidens, full-sister to 6f/7f Group 2 two-year-old winner Strategic Prince. Couldn't rule him out on pedigree, though stable yet to get fully firing this season.
10-1 and easy enough to back ahead of his Ripon (5f, good to soft) debut last month, when beaten 10½L. Extra furlong plus that experience should not be lost on him and improvement is anticipated.
€12,000 yearling, £20,000 two-year-old. Fourth foal, full-brother to three maidens, out of a German 1m1f winning half-sister to Italian 1m2f Group 1 winner Querari. Others make more appeal over this trip on grounds of pedigree.
21,000gns yearling, Thirteenth foal. Half-brother to four winners, including two as juveniles over 7f-1m. Dam won over 1m3½f. Pedigree suggests he will want further, but stable's juveniles in great shape early in the season so could go well.
9-2 on debut when he ran well to be beaten just over 2L in a Yarmouth maiden (5f, soft) at the beginning of the month. Entitled to come on for that run and with the experience a plus, he should again be thereabouts.
€13,000 yearling. Seventh foal. Half-brother to 7f AW winner Windsor Cross (inc. at two) and French 1m3f/1m5f winner Kaniza, out of US 6f two-year-old stakes winner. Promising pedigree and stable among the winners. Could give a good account.
16,000gns yearling, resold for 12,000gns. Second foal of an unraced half-sister to 1m1f winner White Rosa out of 6f two-year-old AW Group 3 winner/Cheveley Park second. Stable's first juvenile runner this season. Usual strike rate 11%.
£15,000 at two. Fifth foal. Half-brother to winners Second Thought (6f-1m AW in at two/Listed) and Ifittakesforever (5f-6f AW) out of placed 6f/7f mare. Stable without a two-year-old winner in past five seasons.
9,000gns yearling. First foal. Unraced dam out of Listed-placed 5f two-year-old winning half-sister to Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Classic Park. Probably one to watch on debut.
10th foal. Half-sister to six winners, three of them over sprint trips (two of those at two). Dam 7f/1m winner, out of a useful 1m winner. Nice pedigree. Hooded for this debut. Stable usually 10% with two-year-olds. This first such runner of season.
