Lope De Vega filly, cost 26,000 gns as a yearling. Dam a winner on dirt over 5f (also won on turf over 7f). Seemingly needed the run on debut here and entitled to do better.
Invincible Spirit filly, dam placed as a juvenile at Listed level over this trip. Ran well on debut over C&D last month and every chance she will take a step forward from that run. Fascinating contender.
Wootton Bassett filly, cost €60,000 as a yearling and €250,000 as a Breeze-up purchase. Half-sister tot two winners and dam a winner over further. Market likely to reveal expectations.
Invincible Spirit filly, half-sister to Group 1 winner Blair House and a Listed winner. Dam a sister to a Group 1 winner. Pedigree suggests she may want a bit further but ran well over C&D on debut. Each-way claims.
Alhebayeb filly, cost €16,000 as a foal and £30,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to two winners and dam a juvenile winner. Yard do well with their juveniles and interesting what the market makes of him.
No Nay Never filly, cost 50,000 gns as a yearling. Half-sister to eight winners including a pair of Group 3 winners and dam a winner over this trip as a juvenile. Needed the run on debut but should improve.
Kingman filly, dam a Group 3 winner over this trip and half-sister to a Listed/Group 3 winning sprinter. Only narrowly touched off over this trip at Pontefract on debut and should improve.
Clodovil filly, cost 34,000 gns as a yearling. Half-sister to a useful sprinter and dam a juvenile winner over this trip. Yard's debutantes can need the run but not ruled out if the market says otherwise.
Exceed And Excel filly. Priced dropped from £88,000 as a yearling to £64,000 as a two-year-old. Dam a Group 3 winner. Showed nothing when last of seven on debut at Nottingham and hard to fancy after that effort.
Norse Dancer filly, sister to a winner and half-sister to two winners over this trip. Dam also a winner over this trip. Has been slow to break on both starts when filling third each time. Needs plenty more here.
Kodiac filly, dam a winner over 1m2f and half-sister to a Listed placed juvenile over this trip. Would appear to be a suitable test for debut and this jockey rides the course well. Interesting what the market makes of her.
Sir Prancealot filly, cost 11,000 gns as a foal. Dam a half-sister to two winners over further. Others make more appeal.
Lope De Vega filly, cost €88,000 as a yearling. Dam a juvenile winner over 7f and half-sister to a useful winner over this trip. Yard very capable of readying debutantes and market should prove revealing.
Charm Spirit filly, cost 120,000 gns as a yearling. Half-sister to four winners and dam a half-sister to a Grade 1 winner in US. Interesting runner from top yard and any market confidence worth noting.
