By Dream Ahead out of a winning sister to smart sprinter Move In Time. Kept on after a slow start when sixth of nine at Haydock on debut, and could improve markedly on that.
By Slade Power out of a winner at around 1m. Sales price dropped when resold earlier this year, which is a concern, but yard can ready a newcomer, and market check essential.
From a fair sprinting family, but little impact in two starts to date, and needs his sights lowered if he's to make an impression.
Out of an unraced mare from a good family, and shaped well when third of 12 at Thirsk on debut, despite racing freely. Likely to do better, and merits consideration.
Son of Exceed And Excel out of a half-sister to Group 1 winner Dominant, and cost 120,000 gns as a yearling. Caught the eye when mid-field at Newbury last month on first try, and likely to improve considerably for experience.
Iffrajj colt from family of smart winners Trans Island and Mujaazef, and showed lots of promise when second of ten starting out at Leicester last month, and has leading form claims on that showing.
Alhebayeb half-brother to 2-y-o 5f winners Captain Whoosh and Noreen Cullen. Yard has an 18% strike-rate with juveniles this term, so market check required on racecourse bow.
Heeraat half-brother to a couple of modest 5f winners, but cheaply bought and already gelded, so others make more obvious appeal.
Helmet half-brother to several winners from 7f to 1m3f, and too green to do himself justice when only beating one home on 5f debut at Hamilton. Will improve, and longer trip in his favour.
Swiss Spirit half-brother to useful 2-y-o 5f/6f winner Alicante Dawn. Bred to be speedy, and holds an entry in Two-Year-Old Trophy here later in the season, so clearly a newcomer to note in the market.
Approve half-sister to connections' 2-y-o 6f winners Kaab and Allux Boy, but no show in two starts to date, and looks limited at this stage.
Showed plenty of ability amongst greenness when third on first start at Chelmsford, and possible to make excuses for poor run at Pontefract since, when drawn wide and meeting interference. Should yet do better.
Homebred filly by Sepoy out of a regressive maiden. Yard without a Flat winner in recent seasons, and she looks to have plenty on her plate starting out.
