Cost €42,000 as a yearling and is a son of Zoffany out of a Green Desert mare. Slowly away when well held on debut at Doncaster and needs to show much more.
Improved on York debut when fourth of nine at Salisbury. May step forward again, but his best opportunities will probably lie in handicap company.
Olympic Glory colt out of a New Approach mare who cost 30,000gns as a yearling. Never-nearer fifth of 16 on his racecourse bow at Windsor and should be more streetwise this time.
By French sire Anodin, he cost €50,000 this year and is a half-brother to a 1m1f winner in France. Makes his debut and the betting should be the best guide to his chance.
Shaped as though this step up in trip would help when running with credit on both starts at Doncaster and Newmarket. Has solid each-way prospects although the best of him may be seen in handicaps.
By Anodin out of an In The Wings mare, he cost 10,000 gns this year and is a half-brother to a couple of winners from 7f to 1m2½f. Worth a market check on debut.
Good deal of promise when third on debut at Newbury and filled the same position, albeit beaten over 6L, in a better race at Epsom. Steps up in trip and sets the standard with positive jockey booking.
By War Command, a leading juvenile for Aidan O'Brien, he cost £30,000 as a yearling and is a half-brother to six winners. Interesting debutant, but stable's juveniles usually need a run.
Kyllachy colt who cost €55,000 as a yearling and is from the family of star sprinter Lochsong. No show on debut at Kempton and needs to take a major step forward.
Well held on all three starts. Tries a step up in distance, but has plenty to prove and is another whose future probably lies in handicaps.
By Kodiac, he fetched €50,000 as a yearling and is from the family of an Italian 1,000 Guineas winner. Debutant from stable which also sends out Running Tide.
