Zebedee colt, cost €30,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to a juvenile winner. Impressive winner on debut at Bath and likely to take a step forward from that and can't be ruled out.
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 over 5f here but too keen at Ascot next time. May do better here.
Unbeaten in two starts and never saw a rival when making all at Kempton last time out in fine fashion. Will need to improve up in trip here to land a blow though.
Footstepsinthesand colt, cost €35,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to three winners and dam a middle distance winner. Impressive on debut and shaped like he would appreciate the step up in trip. Ought to run well.
Lethal Force colt, half-brother to juvenile winner over this trip and dam a juvenile winner over a little further and half-sister to a Group 3 winner. Nice debut and improved a little to win at Salisbury next time. Needs more in a deeper race here.
No Nay Never colt, cost 150,000 gns as a yearling. Gave away his chance at the start on second career outing at Ascot last time when 1/7 odds-on favourite but worth forgiving that effort given the way he nearly won that day.
Toronado colt, cost 62,000 gns as a foal and 120,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to seven winners including a Listed winner and dam a juvenile winner and half sister to an Italian Group 1 winner. May need further than this.
English Channel colt, cost $3,500 as a yearling. Half-brother to two winners and dam a full-sister to a Grade 2 winner over middle distances. Likely to struggle in this unless betting market says differently.
Battle Of Marengo colt, cost 55,000 gns as a foal. Dam a half-sister to a Listed winner. Entitled to need this on debut.
