€35,000 yearling by prolific sire Dark Angel out of an unplaced dam in France. Bred to appreciate this sort of trip and trainer does well with two-year-olds so market worth watching on debut.
Big Bad Bob gelding finished sixth of 11 on debut at Newmarket last month where he looked green under pressure late on. Extra 1f should help and may have come on for the experience so has each-way potential.
€28,000 colt from the first crop of Gale Force Ten showed little on debut at Ffos Las 10 days ago when only beating one home. Trainer good with two-year-olds but lot to do to turn him around.
Placed four times in races at Ayr, Leicester, Beverley and Chester. Too keen latest at Goodwood when below par and must settle upped to 1m for first time. Capable of going well.
€20,000 yearling by Rock Of Gibraltar out of an unraced sister to a 1m4f winner from a stout German family. Likely to need time and a longer distance to excel.
€72,000 yearling by Olympic Glory out of an unraced sister to 1m4f Group One winner Behkabad. Nice pedigree for middle distances but recommend watching brief for now.
Disappointing debut when last of eight at Goodwood as a 7/2 chance. Given trainer's record and liking for that course suspect good bit more was expected. Much improvement needed but suspect we will see it.
Narrowly beaten second on debut at Kempton where she belied odds of 50/1. That effort was comfortably the best form on offer so this filly looks the one they all have to beat.
