16:35 Lingfield Wed 11 July 2018
Just the one run so far for this filly but it resulted in a good win at Nottingham under quite a tender ride leaving the impression that there was more to come. Took a keen hold there and missed the break and likely to know much more here.
Half-brother to several winners including a couple at 1m2f plus by Helmet who makes his first starts in this from a yard that do well with juveniles. The stable are not as sharp as they used to be with juveniles though and ne might just need this.
Has a useful pedigree and spoilt his debut by blowing the start at Goodwood and finding the effort to catch up taking a toll. Failed to improve next time even with that experience under his belt and hard to know what to expect now.
Hooded for his debut (that headgear retained here) he was far too inexperienced to do himself justice. Should come on for that experience now switched to turf and up to 6f but has work to do to reach the frame.
From a yard going well with their juveniles this year he's offered something to work on in both of his starts (still needed the experience second time). Tried over 7f here last time he's now dropped down a furlong and expected to improve again.
Has some wind surgery after his first run and travelled well enough last time hitting a similar level of performance as he did on his debut. Wasn't unduly punished to finish second last time and should improve once more.
Debutante from a yard not known for their two-year-old winners let alone newcomers. Dam was a winner over 1m including as a juvenile but best watched on her debut.
Offered something to work on from her debut showing quite a bit for a debutante from this stable and not given a hard time over 7f at Chepstow. The move back to 6f doesn't look an obvious one and it may not be until handicaps that we see her best.
