3/1

Equiano colt, dam a half-sister to Group 1 winner Cityscape and Group 2 winning sprinter Bated Breath. Impressive on debut but pulled up sore after losing action next start at a juvenile. Given time and could easily bounce back.

Built on a promising debut when winning on AW in November. Showed an impressive turn of foot and there should be plenty more to come for stable that are going so well.

Bated Breath gelding is a half-brother to numerous winners, including useful two-year-old sprint winner Nuclear Power. Should improve on debut where pace was too slow but this requires a big leap.

Shaped with promise behind Roussel (subsequently Listed placed) but future will probably lie in handicaps after this.

Always out the back on debut a year ago. Changed stables since and remains best watched.

Kyllachy gelding who fetched 34,000 gns as a two-year-old. Ran with promise on debut but took a backwards step when fancied next up. Needs to bounce back but no surprise if he does.

Gelded son of Dick Turpin who took a significant step forward when shaping with promise at Ripon. Likely to need more time but physically has potential and should improve again.

Cost 38,000 gns as a yearling and bred with plenty of speed on both sides of pedigree. Market best guide on debut.

9/4

Placed in last five starts including in Listed company at the end of last season and on her return in a handicap. Should appreciate the quicker ground and likely to go well but return wasn't an improvement.

Showed improvement on her second start when not getting a clear run. Drop in trip doesn't look an obvious step and will be qualified for handicaps after this.

Betting

Forecast

Foxtrot Lady (9/4), Equilateral (3/1), Miracle Works (7/2), Two Weeks (5/1), Giant's Treasure (6/1), Warton (16/1), Impulsive Force (20/1), Waddington (25/1), Scoundrel (25/1), Snowdon (28/1), Jazz Magic (50/1), First Breath (50/1)

Verdict

Many are open to improvement but it may pay to side with TWO WEEKS who showed a smart burst of acceleration on her second start last year and looked a nice sprinter in the making for her impressive trainer. Foxtrot Lady is on a run of placed efforts including at Listed level and should be involved again on these terms. Giant's Treasure won nicely on debut but has presumably had problems so the market will be a good guide after a lengthy absence. Equilateral and Miracle Works could easily bounce back after below par second starts while Scoundrel looks a nice prospect and could go well at a price.
