Well found in the betting and certainly knew what was required on his debut when beating a subsequent winner at Redcar on his debut over 6f. Looks a useful sort who could be well up to defying a penalty and putting his experience to good use.
Tongue-tie goes on for debut from a yard that have only had one two-year-old winner so far this season (1/12) but has a good record with juveniles at this venue. Pedigree is certainly attractive and will be worth noting in the market.
Newcomer and one of two that the yard run here having often introduced a useful two-year-old at the track. Looks to be the stables main hope here given the jockey booking and has to be respected.
Cost plenty (£70,000) for a yard that have had some useful two-year-olds in the past couple of years. Well related on the distaff side of the pedigree and forward display won't surprise; yard yet to have a juvenile winner this season.
Trainer already has more than 20 juvenile winners on the board and this newcomer is hard to ignore given his connections. Cost €200,000 as a yearling and has a nice mix of stamina and speed in the pedigree.
Looks to be the second string from this yard despite having had some experience. He's bred for longer trips than the 5f he attempted on his debut and this trip will suit better but he does face some well-bred and expensive newcomers in this.
Yard are no stranger to two-year-old winners and this one started his career off over 6f at Leicester shaping well enough (found trip on sharp side). He's bred for much further so this extra furlong will suit but likely to need further in time.
