15,000 gns yearling. Second foal, half-sister to 7f-1m AW winner Cliffs Of Capri (won at two), out of 1m AW two-year-old winner. Trainer has had a juvenile winner here this season. Market check.
10-1 on debut at Ascot (5f, good to firm) last month and ran well in the vanguard, before being beaten 4L. Can build on that good start and go close here.
Half-sister to four winners, including Nakuti (7f-1m including Group 3) and Bapak Asmara (5f), out of a maiden whose best run was over 6f at two. Represents top stable and could make a nice debut.
Two runs ar Catterick so far, the more recent being an improved effort (5f, good), when 5L fourth of 10. Can take another step up today, though will probably have to wait for her first win.
Steady improver so far, her best being when 100-1 and beaten around 6L at Newcastle (5f, AW) earlier in the month. Will probably be more interesting when she has a handicap mark to work with.
22-1 and always in rear when beaten 16L at Catterick (5f, good to firm) on debut in May. Can improve for that, but whether she can find sufficient to trouble the principals this time remains to be seen.
€20,000 yearling. Eighth foal and is half-sister to seven winners, mainly over sprint trips, the best being Listed winner Elusive Beauty. Dam French 1m1f winner. Stable's juveniles tend to improve for their first run.
€21,000 yearling. Closely related to 6f-1m AW winner King Bertie and half-sister to winners Hyperfocus (5f-6f, inc at two) and Ingleby Spring (7f-1m3f). Dam fourth over 1m. Stable's two-year-olds going well enough and she could make a nice debut.
16-1 and was a bit too keen on her Musselburgh debut, so that run (when she led until weakening to be a 5L sixth) can probably be marked up slightly. Could do better if hood can help her to settle. Interesting.
Improved on her Catterick debut when tried over 6f at Haydock recently. Becoming more interesting with each run and this drop to 5f again is probably positive. Can do better still and probably has each-way claims.
The penny was beginning to drop towards the end of her Redcar debut last month. Never involved when beaten 11L at Haydock last time. Probably one to consider more closely when entering handicaps.
Improving steadily and not beaten far at Carlisle (5f, good) last time. That is the best form on offer here, but she has now had three runs and could prove vulnerable to something with more immediate improvement in her.
