Equiano fill that only cost 4,000 gns as a yearling. Taken a long time to get her to the track and is probably best watched here.
Remains a maiden after nine starts. Had one or two bits of nice form as a juvenile though and with the cheekpieces added is a major player back in a maiden.
Ran well on his final two starts over C&D last year. Non-runner on Wednesday due to fast ground. Should be more to come this year and has sound claims.
Half-brother to three winners including Desert Tempest a smart winner up to a mile with the dam a maiden. Beaten 7L on debut last year and needs to do more on first start for new yard today.
Cost €44,000 as a two-year-old with the dam a winner over a mile. Well beaten on the Fibresand over 7f at Southwell on debut. Should do better at some point and improvement to come.
Had a wind operation before making the racecourse and failed to beat a rival on debut when beaten 25L at Bath last week. Others preferred.
Priced dropped from 18,000 gns as a foal to 5,000 gns as a yealing. Finjaan filly that is bred for speed and yard certainly know how to get one ready for debut. Market check needed.
