Dawn Approach filly, half-sister to eight winners including two winners at Listed level. Dam a Group 3 winner as a juvenile. Well bred and won at Lingfield on debut, staying on gamely. Carries a penalty but should improve for the step up in trip.
Kingman colt, dam a Group 3 winner as a juvenile and sister to a 6f Group 1 winner. Well bred and this is a suitable test for his debut. Market should reveal expectations.
Lope De Vega colt, cost €220,000 as a yearling. Dam a winner and half-sister to a US Grade 2 winner amongst other pattern level performers. May want a bit further than this but respected on debut for a yard that can ready a juvenile.
Dark Angel colt, cost 750,000 gns as a yearling. Brother to a juvenile Listed winner over this trip. Dam a sprint winner and half-sister to a Listed winner also over this trip. Appealing on paper and yard's two-year-olds running well in general.
Dark Angel colt, cost £72,000 as a yearling. Dam a juvenile winner over this trip and half-sister to four winners. May need the run on debut and market can reveal expectations.
Zoffany colt, cost £19,000 as a yearling and 23,000 gns as a two-year-old. Dam a full-sister to a winner and half-sister to a US Grade 1 winner over 1m1f. May want further than this.
Kodiac colt, cost 140,000 gns as a foal and 240,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to three winners and dam a sister to multiple Group 1 winner Soviet Song. Yard's debutantes can need the run but makes plenty of appeal on paper and not ruled out.
Exceed And Excel colt, cost €130,000 as a yearling. Dam a winner and half-sister to US Grade 2 winner and a Listed winner. Well beaten in his bid to make all at Newbury on debut. Should improve but has a tough ask here.
Charm Spirit colt, half-brother to five winners, most notably an Australian Group 1 winner and dam was a winner over 7f. Yard do well with their juveniles and interesting to see whether any money arrives for him.
