Havana Gold half-brother to useful winner 1m/1¼m winner Give And Take out of an unraced sister to Gold Cup winner Fame And Glory. Bred to be smart, and respected for all this trip could prove a minimum on pedigree.
Gelded son of Clodovil who cost €10,000 as a yearling. Dam was a 1¾m-2m1f winner and a half-sister to smart stayer Romantic Affair. Looks one for the longer term based on breeding.
Epaulette half-brother to 2-y-o 1¼m winner Gembari out of a mare who stayed 1½m. Already gelded, and another who is likely to need a stiffer test in the fullness of time.
Acclamation colt out of Group 3 Albany Stakes runner-up Agent Allison, and cost 100,000 gns as a yearling. Should be fully effective at this trip on breeding, and interesting, especially if attracting support.
By Frankel out of Group 3 Fred Darling winner Puff, and a half-brother to connections' useful 7f/1m winner Mesquite. Makes plenty of appeal on breeding, and yard 3-16 with two-year-olds on turf this season. Holds a Gimcrack entry.
Out of an unraced mare from a good family, and shaped well when third of 12 at Thirsk on debut, despite racing freely. Again caught the eye at Redcar last time, and one for nurseries after another run.
Bated Breath colt out of a half-sister to smart 6f/7f handicapper Leahurst. Signs of greenness when 4½L third of 8 to Kuwait Station at Ripon first time out, and entitled to progress.
Compton Place half-brother to useful 1m5f winner Bank Bonus and 1m winner Cool The Jets. Sales price rose markedly as a yearling, and holds some fancy entries, so needs a second look on debut for a powerful yard.
By Slade Power out of a winning daughter of smart 6f/7f winner Palace Affair, and fetched £120,000 as a yearling. Holds a couple of sales-race entries, and bred for speed, so considered on racecourse debut.
Camacho half-brother to a 6f juvenile winner, and cost 70,000 gns at the breeze-ups. Well beaten on debut at Windsor recently, but showed good speed, and will improve.
Son of Mazameer who is bred to be speedy, and built on debut effort when seventh of 18 to Chains of Love in seller at York last time. Still learning, and better to come when handicapping.
Tamayuz half-brother to numerous winners, including smart Hong Kong sprinter Domineer. Appeal on paper, although yard is 0-25 with juveniles on turf this season.
Gelded son of Havana Gold out of a once-raced maiden, and sales price plummeted to £6,000 earlier this year. Makes very limited appeal starting out for yard with 0-50 record with two-year-olds in recent seasons.
Dandy Man colt whose sale price rocketed from 52,000 gns as a foal to €240,000 as a yearling. Very green when down the field at Windsor on debut, and likely to do much better in time.
