17:40 Ayr Tue 7 August 2018
Improved from his debut to take advantage of the weight concession from his market rival at Yarmouth. The tables are turned this time so he needs to maintain that progress for a yard that are 25-79 with it's juveniles this term.
£16,000 Morpeheus colt has shown precious little so far at lengthy odds and he is probably out of his depth once again.
€16,000 Es Que Love colt who is related to six individual winners. Looked green on debut but ran on nicely when getting the hang of things. That experience and the extra furlong here can only help.
Dandy Man half-brother to five winners including Charlie Appleby's five-time winner Flash Fire. Showed some promise on debut and this shorter trip could see further improvement, however yard 1-43 with this age group since 2014.
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. Noted staying on at Doncaster in a race which has been giving mixed signals, but fair to say he needs further.
Has only beaten one rival in two races over C&D (beaten 18½L last time) and once again he faces another stern examination.
7,000 gns Morpheus filly and half-sister to several winners including Ko Cache who won two sprints for this yard and a useful sprinter in Italy. Receives a generous allowance here if straight enough on debut.
Cost just £3,000 as a yearling; half-sister to three winners including the smart sprinter Confessional. Dam was also a sprint winner at up to 6f including as a juvenile. Last of seven on debut and hard to see improving sufficiently.
