Gelded son of Epaulette who cost 10,000gns as a yearling and whose dam won over 7f. One to watch on debut unless the market speaks in his favour. Stable won this last year.
Stable companion of Bunbledom who cost €22,000 as a yearling and is a Gregorian half-brother to a couple of winners at around 1m2f. Only seventh of 11 on debut at Redcar and needs to improve.
Stepped up on Beverley debut when third of 10 at Pontefract. Seems to be going the right way, but needs to take another step forward.
Helmet colt who cost €19,000 as a yearling and whose dam won over hurdles. Probably best watched on debut, but is worth a look in the betting.
Second representative from this stable. Has failed to beat a rival in three and four-runner races at Ayr and Pontefract and steps up a furlong in trip.
Elzaam colt who cost €15,000 as a foal and €20,000 as a yearling. A half-brother to 6½f-1m1f winner Princess Aloof, he cut little ice behind a top-class prospect at York, but this is easier and he may well step forward for his respected stable.
Gelded son of Sepoy who fetched £28,000 as a yearling and is a half-brother to a couple of winners from 5f to 1m. Stable debutants normally need the run.
Gradually getting the hang of things and ran well to finish a close fifth of 13 at Redcar at the beginning of the month. Behind Freed From Desire that day, however, so he needs to find extra.
Ruler Of The World colt who cost £14,000 as a yearling and whose dam won over 7f on the AW. Might need this debut outing, but top Northern stable is always to be respected with its newcomers.
Harbour Watch filly who fetched only 4,000 gns as a yearling, but is a half-sister to a couple of winners from 6f to 1m3f. Best watched as she makes her racecourse bow.
