Just 1,500 guineas Dark Angel yearling, very cheap for progeny of a leading sire. Stable not known for first time out winners so likely to be better for this debut experience
58,000 guineas Acclamation colt, dam won over 7f. Yard won this race 12 months ago and does particularly well with juveniles at this track. Should be thereabouts.
Gelded son of Australian sire Kuroshio fared well enough when fourth on debut at Goodwood 10 days ago and should have learned plenty from that experience. Respected, but may find one or two too good.
Fast Company colt whose dam is half-sister to a Group 2 middle distance winner. Likely to be better in time over further and has his work cut out on debut.
Cost 100,000 guineas as a yearling and is half-brother to a listed winner. Yard can get them ready so any market interest on debut would be well worth noting.
Two fair efforts so far for this son of Exceed and Excel who will appreciate the return to 6f after being taken off his feet over the minimum trip last time. First-time cheekpieces applied and sets a fair standard.
Bred for this trip being a son of Group 1 Diamond Jubilee winner Society Rock. Cost 57,000 euros as a yearling and represents top yard with fine course record. Wears hood for debut but is worh a second glance.
100,000 guineas son of Kodiac whose dam is from fine middle distance family of Time Charter. Stable a little quiet of late but still having a winner or two. Any market support would be worth heeding.
Going the right way and was a decent runner-up here last time. Certainly capable of winning races and should be in the thick of the action once again.
Dark Angel colt who cost a hefty 280,000 euros as a yearling. Dam placed in listed company over 5f as a juvenile and trainer very adept at getting them ready for racecourse bow. No surprise to see him run a big race and one for the shortlist.
Lilbourne Lad colt who hasn't shown much at all in two outings to date, finishing a distant last of seven on his most recent run at Lingfield. Very hard to fancy.
17,000 euros Society Rock colt out of dam related to middle distance performers. Yard yet to have a juvenile winner so far this term and may be better for this debut experience.
Dandy Man colt whose sale price rocketed from 52,000 guineas as a foal to 240,000 euros as a yearling, so must look the part. Yard ticking over nicely so bold show wouldn't surpirse on debut.
Power colt whose unraced dam is related to a number of useful middle distance performers. Likely to need more of a test and improve for this initial experience.
Approve filly who cut little ice when last of 10 on her debut at Beverley five weeks ago. Much more needed and looks to have plenty on her plate in this company.
£14,000 Zebedee filly, half-sister to four indivual winners. Yard can ready them for debut but this looks tough and she's expected to do better down the line.
