Hardly beaten a rival home in three career starts to date. Makes no appeal at all on return from nine months off the track.
Pastoral pursuits gelding who cost just 2,000 gns as a foal. Dam was placed over 6f on turf and 7f on AW. Taken a very long time to get to the track and others are preferred.
Only limited promise in two bumpers and two starts so far on the flat. Beaten a very long way at Salisbury last time and handicaps more suitable after this.
Sea The Stars colt, cost 450,000 gns as a yearling. Has looked a touch one paced in his two starts to date and it may be that a bit further than this will suit. This is a weaker race and likely to be in the shake up.
Iffraaj colt who cost 100,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-brother to two winners. Only limited promise when fifth of eight on debut at Epsom but very much likely to improve and a player here.
Foxwedge gelding. First foal, dam was a winner over 6f & 7f and is out of a multiple winner. Yard having a fairly quiet time of things and market will be a good guide to expectations.
Iffraaj gelding who's price rose from €50,000 as a foal to £68,000 as a yearling. Dam was related to plenty of winners and won over 1m4f. Yard can get one ready and market move would be significant.
Invincible Spirit gelding that cost 500,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to Oaks winner Dancing Rain. Dam is an unraced half-sister to Derby winner Dr Devious. Lots to like on paper ahead of debut.
Improved on debut effort to finish fifth at Leicester (1m, good) on second start. This extra furlong should help and is likely to be in the shake up here.
