Dubawi filly out of a Group 3 winning mare. Full-sister to the useful Big Tour, who scored on the AW. Did too much too soon when supported on debut and paid the price in a tight finish. Looks capable of stepping up on that.
AW winners in the pedigree and she should be happier on this surface than was the case on her Haydock debut.
Well-backed ahead of both starts but needs to step up on those efforts in a stronger race on AW debut.
Fourth of seven on Brighton debut and that does not look good enough. Yard have been going through a quiet spell and are just 3-47 with AW juveniles over the past five seasons.
Yard only recently got going overall and so far has had just the two juvenile winners this season. Did well to show as much as she did over 5f on debut (has a middle-distance pedigree); started slowly, finished well. Better expected this time.
Intello filly, closely related to useful two-year-old 6f/7f winner Seven Heavens and half-sister to very smart 1m winner Firmament. Slowly away when backed on debut and always playing catch up, but should learn plenty for the experience.
Daughter of Sepoy who cost 60,000 gns as a yearling. Only beat one home on debut and hard to imagine she has improved enough since.
Related to several winning sprinters including Jimmy Styles. Highly tried on debut when she also blew the start, but is clearly held in some regard by her trainer.
The Hannons have won three of three of the last five renewals of this, therefore this €80,000 daughter of Dark Angel must enter calculations. Dam was a Listed AW winner.
Dutch Art filly from a family that have done well for these connections. Most of her relatives have needed further, but the stable do well with this age group here
Fetched 70,000 gns as a foal by Showcasing and half-sister to a winner in Sweden. The best ones for this yard can go in first time, but the majority improve for a run.
€160,000 half-sister to winning miler (inc. AW) Cool Team. Took the eye on Chepstow debut when beaten less than a length in a quick time, but failed to build on that next time. A longer break and a change of surface provide plausible excuses.
