Pivotal colt that cost 87,000 gns as a yearling. Second foal. Dam won the Group 2 Italian Oaks and is a sister to a Grade 2 winner in Canada. Last of 14 on last week's debut and jockey booking suggests he is still a work in progress.
Has shown some ability in three slowly run bumpers, but this promises to be a more thorough examination and he may be found wanting.
Has won two bumpers but her Flat form is very ordinary and she may be waiting for an opportunity in a handicap.
By sire of the moment Deep Impact out of a dam who won the Australian 1000 Guineas and Oaks. Has clearly been difficult to train and the market will tell us more.
85,000gns yearling. Sixth foal. Half-brother to winners Devdas (1m at two) and Allegria (1m3½f-1m4½f), out of a 6f winner. Beaten 35L on debut and the addition of a visor so soon in his career is a concern.
Half-brother to a useful winner up to 2m Mandatario with the dam an unraced half-sister to a useful 1m winner. Green on both starts, but the yard's horses have gone well enough this week to mark him as a potential improver.
Motivator half-brother to a couple of winners. Has a middle-distance pedigree and looks interesting in a race lacking depth.
Half-brother to Dandino by Farrh and cost 44,000 gns. He got unbalanced at Bath last time when coming from a long way back so this more galloping track looks sure to assist.
Sent off favourite when well beaten on debut and considerably better next time when still beaten 12L in a Salisbury novice. Sets the standard but not a particularly high one.
