$600,000 son of Scat Daddy impressed in the paddock and on the track when an impressive winner over 7f on debut at Sandown. Carries a penalty but this Champagne Stakes entry could very easily be Group Class and is expected to win this.
Son of Australia cost $100,000 as a yearling. Dam won over 6f and is herself from a mare closely related to great sire Danehill. Attractive pedigree so worth watching but no more given trainer is one from 30 with two-year-olds.
Iffraaj colt made his debut over 7f at Redcar last month when a 5¼L sixth of 11. Looked the sort who would benefit for the experience so could go better here but place best he can probably hope for.
Zoffany colt ran against Beatboxer on debut when he was very green and finished eighth of nine at Sandown. Impossible to envisage reversal with that rival and may need more time.
£95,000 son of Scat Daddy out of a US 6f dirt winner. Pedigree very much suggests speed so surprising he starts over this trip. Trainer has two-year-old success but would need to be very smart to contend here on debut.
Bargain basement but at 1,000gns compared to some of these but ran well on debut when second of 12 on debut at Doncaster (beaten 4L). The fifth came out and won next time (only runner from race since) so form could prove useful.
