Charm Spirit colt, cost 75,000 gns as a foal and £105,000 as a Breeze-Up purchase. Half-brother to five winners. Green throughout his debut but got up to win and will have learnt plenty from that. Each-way claims.
Kyllachy colt, cost 95,000 gns as a yearling. Dam a 6f winner and half-sister to Mazzini. Run out of it late on debut at Newbury but made amends when making all at Lingfield last time. Form franked by the runner-up since but needs more here.
Confirmed the promise of his debut run with two wins, making all on each outing. Not disgraced when beaten in Listed company last time behind Vintage Brut and may appreciate a return to front-running tactics judged on that effort.
Lethal Force colt, cost 85,000 gns as a yearling. Dam a Group 2 winner of 6f. Overcame a slow start on debut at Newmarket and not beaten far at Sandown last time behind Vintage Brut from a poor draw. May be able to reverse the form.
No Nay Never colt, half-brother to US Grade 1 winner. Dam a Group 3 winner over 6f and half-sister to Irish 1,000 Guineas winner. Won at the Curragh on second start and ran well in Listed class back there last time. May improve dropped back to 5f.
Improved from Brighton debut to win at Chelmsford and followed up with a win at Longchamp last time. Not ruled out if he continues on his upward curve here.
Bungle Inthejungle colt who cost 70,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-brother to a couple of juvenile winners. Made all to win on debut at Salisbury in game fashion and runner-up has won since. Needs more but further progress likely.
Charm Spirit colt, cost €120,000 as a yearling. Dam a sister to Group 2 winner over 1m4f and half-sister to 6f Listed winner. Stayed on gamely to win at Newbury on debut and runner-up has won since. Should run well if not convenienced by drop to 5f.
Dick Turpin colt, cost £280,000 at the sales on Monday. Dam a winner over 5f and half-sister to 6f winner. Impressive on debut and followed up in Listed class at Sandown last time from an ideal draw. Still shapes like there's more to come.
Shanghai Bobby filly, cost $200,000 as a two-year-old. Half-sister to three winners and dam a Listed placed sprinter. Impressive dirt winner on debut over 4½f and yard warrant plenty of respect with these types. Wears blinkers.
