Price rose sharply at the breeze-up sales and it was easy to see why when he made a winning debut at Hamilton (6f, soft). Won with a little to spare there and in the style of a horse who had more to come even under a penalty (form franked).

Looked a useful sort when he won on his debut at Pontefract in May (5f, heavy) with the 2nd winning next time out. Found his next race (raised in class/trip; 6f) much tougher and failed to match his debut form; now gelded and on quicker ground.

His introduction was a gentle one and the benefit of that was shown when he ran to fair level on his next start stepped up to 7f (will stay further). Given his debut on the AW for his third start he was beaten by a newcomer; now back to 6f.

Ran green on his debut over C&D and that held him back to a certain extent getting outpaced before rallying to finish off well. He will have come on for that run but the stable have only had two juvenile winners this year so far.

Well supported on his debut at York (6f) but looked in need of the experience (in terms of fitness and race know how) weakening around a furlong out. Sure to improve for that run his yard have already had 40 juvenile winners on the board this year.

Cost just £3,000 as a yearling; half-sister to three winners including the smart sprinter Confessional. Dam was also a sprint winner at up to 6f including as a juvenile. This will be the yard's first two-year-old runner of the season.

Filly by Society Rock who cost £12,000 as a two-year-old and is a sister to a juvenile 7f winner (Kikini Bamalaam); dam was also a two-year-old winner. Yard are 0-3 with juveniles this year and 0-19 in the last five; best watched on debut.

Betting

Forecast

Baronial Pride (15/8), Celebrity Dancer (9/4), Amadeus Grey (4/1), Royal Big Night (11/2), Caballero (14/1), Caledonia Lass (50/1), Jordan's Chris (125/1)

Verdict

A competitive opener to the card for juveniles before we get stuck into some tricky handicaps. BARONIAL PRIDE was quite impressive when he made a winning debut at Hamilton over this trip despite showing some inexperience and he looks as though he can win again with that run tucked away. Celebrity Dancer may find this test a little more to his liking although Royal Big Night is earmarked as the main danger from a stable which continue to churn out juvenile winners. Both Caballero and Amadeus Grey need to show more to get involved with the latter striking more as a nursery type.
