Related to a couple of Listed class middle-distance performers and predictably improved when stepped up to this trip last time. More progress likely and this looks a lot easier. Stable do well here with this age group(16-57).
Has a dirt pedigree on the dam's side and came in for late support when third at Wolverhampton last time. Not disgraced on turf debut either and sire handled testing ground.
Son of George Vancouver purchased for €26,000 at the sales last October. Half-brother to the useful Ming Dynasty. Worth a check in the market for a yard who had a well backed juvenile winner on Tuesday.
Has shown speed on his first two starts but had his limitations exposed last time. In better company this time over 2f further.
Produced a better effort last time in a first time visor when making the winning favourite knuckle down hard. A similar positive ride under the champion jockey would make her hard to beat in receipt of the fillies allowance.
12,000 gns Champs Elysees filly with speed on the dam's side of the pedigree. Narrowly failed in a slowly run race at Yarmouth two weeks ago and this looks stronger.
