Oasis Dream colt, cost 60,000 gns as a yearling. Sent off favourite for debut at Leicester (5f, heavy) when finishing second. Ran to a similar level last time at Newmarket (5f, good to firm) and is likely to run well again. Stepped up in trip.
Showcasing colt. Priced dropped from 80,000 gns as a foal to 50,000 gns as a yearling. Half brother to winners at various trips. Dam only saw the racecourse once. Yard can ready one first time and market should be a good guide to expectations.
Well bred son of Tamayuz. Price rose from 82,000 gns as a foal to 325,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to a Listed winner. Dam won over 1m as a two-year-old at Listed level. Likely type on paper for powerful connections on debut.
Hampered on racecourse debut at kempton (5f, AW) and was sent off favourite for next start at Doncaster (5f, good) when seemingly getting outpaced as the race quickened. On that evidence this step up in trip looks a good move.
Charm Spirit colt that cost 42,000 gns as a yearling. Sixth foal and half-brother to winners Ben Hall, Dreamy Gal and Freeman. Dam won over 1m on the AW and 7f on turf. Trainer's runners tend to need the run (2/36 with debutants last five years).
Kodiac colt that cost 100,000 gns as a yearling. Beaten 3½L on debut at Salisbury (5f, heavy) when attempting to make the running. Was sent off favourite there and should come on for the experience. Extra furlong may help.
Bernadini colt that cost $400,000 as a yearling at the Keeneland sales. Pedigree would suggest that this trip maybe on the sharp side and likely to need further in time. Yard yet to have a two-year-old debutant winner but interesting newcomer.
Swiss Spirit colt that cost £44,000 as a yearling. Dam was unraced but there is a real good mix of speed and stamina in his pedigree. Likely type on paper and yard know how to get one ready for racecourse debut. Market a good guide to expectations.
Tamayuz colt. First foal from an unraced dam that was a half-sister to several winners. Pedigree would suggest that further than this is likely to be needed in time and market should be a good guide for debut.
Swiss Spirit colt. First foal from a dam that only ran once and was unplaced over 6f. Yards runners tend to come on for the run and likely vest watched on debut unless the market speaks massively in her favour.
