13:40 Nottingham Thu 14 June 2018
Gelded for debut, bred more for stamina than speed (plenty of it on the dam's side) and likely to find this an inadequate test today. Yard 19% strike rate with their 2-y-o's here.
£52,000 purchase at Goffs Doncaster last year. Half-brother to speedy Andhesontherun (winner on debut, placed at Listed level as a 2yo) and could be a sharp type. Yard's often improve for a run but he makes plenty of appeal.
Price increased from foal to yearling, selling for 26,000gns at Tattersalls last December. First foal, dam a half-sister to two Listed winners in Germany (at 5f and 1m2f) and yard have good strike rate here with their 2yos. Respected.
Cheap purchase, brother to a winner in Morocco but has shown little in two starts so far. A surprise if he's good enough here.
52,000gns purchase from Tatts Oct Book 2 last year, has improved with each of his three starts to date and improved for this step up to 6f at Wolverhampton last time, beaten on the nod. Sets the standard and should be thereabouts.
Price increased as he went through the ring, going for 52,000gns at Tatts October Book 2 last September. Has looked short of speed in two starts and may be one more for nurseries over further after today.
Cost €100,000 from Goffs Orby sales last September and was made favourite for the opening 2yo race of the season, the Brocklesby, at Doncaster back in March but most disappointing so far. Can only be watched at present.
Cost €60,000 at Arqana May Breeze-Ups, half-brother to speedy French winners Mahana and Matara (winners at 6f-1m) and looks the sort to make a sharp 2yo. Yard also 2-4 with their 2yos here and this one deserves plenty of respect on debut.
First foal, gelded for debut today. Breeding suggests we may not see the best of him until given more time and a trip, and yard not known for 2yo winners. Best watched today.
Cost €45,000 at Goffs Orby sales last September, half-brother to four winners (form 5f to 1m) but looked badly in need of the experience at Windsor on debut. Will know more here but needs plenty of improvement.
€62,000 purchase from Goffs Orby sales last September, nicely enough pedigree but it does suggest we may not see him to best effect until getting more of a trip. Yard rarely have first time up 2yo winners and others preferred.
Cost 120,000gns from Tatts Oct Book 2 last October but hasn't lived up to that price tag in two starts yet, still looking green at Carlisle last time but did do a little better in staying on for third. Extra furlong here should help.
