Zebedee colt, cost £30,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to two winners including one over 6f. Dam a middle-distance winner and half-sister to juvenile Group 1 over this trip, Amadeus Wolf. Plenty to like about his pedigree and market check advised.
Le Havre colt, cost €310,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to two Listed level performers over similar trips and dam a winner over 7f. Beautifully bred and yard's two-year-olds in good form this year. Fascinating runner.
Kyllachy colt, cost 52,000 gns as a yearling and 75,000 gns as a Breeze-Up purchase. Dam a half-sister to a Group 3 winner over this trip. Yard do well at this course including with their juveniles and market should reveal expectations.
Dream Ahead colt, cost 62,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to Italian Group 1 winner amongst others and dam a useful sprinter. Disappointed in three-runner affair on debut but not disgraced behind some smart looking sorts at Newmarket last time.
Kodiac colt, cost 100,000 gns as a yearling. Full-brother to a 7f AW winner. May want further than this given time but respected for powerful connections.
Lethal Force colt, cost 58,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to a dirt winner over this trip. Dam with more of a middle-distance pedigree. Yard won this last year and he's an interesting runner on debut.
Dutch Art colt, cost 40,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to a winner and dam Listed placed over this trip and half-sister to a Group 3 winner over further. Yard flying at present and worth a market check.
Lilbourne Lad colt, cost £4,000 as a yearling. Dam a winner over 7f and a full-sister to useful middle-distance Grade 1 winner. Interesting pedigree but sales price a little off-putting as far as this race is concerned and others preferred.
Excelebration colt, cost €12,000 as a foal and £95,000 as a yearling. Full-brother to a 5f juvenile winner and dam a half-sister to a 7f Group 2 winner and two other smart performers over 7f. Yard's debutantes always worthy of plenty of respect.
