Good winner on debut, justifying favouritism when a comfortable 2l victor at Windsor. Struggled to back that up here over C&D last time and maybe vulnerable under the penalty once more.
Cheap purchase at just €3,000 as a yearling but that rose to £10,000 as a two-year-old. Half-brother to several winners including the useful Mariachi Man. Yard don't have many winners as newcomers.
Firebreak colt that cost £9,000 as a yearling. Dam was Group-placed over 5f & 6f. Plenty to like on paper but yards runners tend to need their first run so market will be a good guide.
Anodin colt that cost €18,000 as a yearling. Related to several winners and yards runners have really struck form over the last few weeks. Interesting newcomer for yard that has a decent strike rate at this track. one to note.
First foal out of dam who was a 7f AW winner as a juvenile and is a half-sister to other winners. 25/1 and well beaten on debut and needs to do much more here to be involved.
21,000gns yearling, Thirteenth foal. Half-brother to four winners, including two as juveniles over 7f-1m. Ran green on debut at Newmarket in a race that has worked out pretty well. Should be plenty of improvement to come.
Eighth foal by War Command out of a 1m2f-1m5f winning dam (Final Opinion). Cost €14,000 as a yearling and showed lots of promise after missing the break on debut and running green. Should come on a bundle for that and is a player.
£35,000 yearling. £16,000 at two. Fifth foal, half-brother to three winners, two of them at two over sprint trips in France. 16/1 and well beaten on debut, should improve for the experience but needs too.
Relatively cheap purchase from Tatts Ireland last September, half brother to the useful Azagal. Ran well over C&D on debut and was a tad unlucky not to go close. Should come on for that and not discounted.
