420,000gns yearling by precocious first-season sire No Nay Never ran an excellent race on debut when narrowly touched off in second (of 17) at Goodwood. Should improve on that effort so outstanding claims here.
Unraced daughter of Exchange Rate cost connections €400,000 at May breeze-up sales. Obviously moved with promise there so not ruled out although trainer not known for winning debutants.
Newcomer by Group One heavy ground winning sprinter Garswood out of an unplaced dam who was out of a Group One winner. Trainer's two-year-olds tend to need the run but market support would be significant.
Dark Angel filly was last of 17 and showed precious little on debut at Goodwood in the same race where Alhakmah finished second. Hopefully fare a little better here but inconceivable she can reverse with the Hannon filly.
Ordinary efforts in two starts to date over C&D first time up and latest at Leicester. Looks the sort for lower end handicaps after this so best watched here.
Tamayuz filly hinted at potential on debut at Sandown despite running greenly but couldn't make significant strides next up at Goodwood and was 4½L behind Alhakmah there. Place potential here but big improvement needed to reverse with the top horse.
Tailed off and only beat one home in 16 runner contest on debut at Windsor. Given time off since so hopefully show a little more but can't be considered from a betting perspective.
Harbour Watch newcomer out of a 1m2f winning dam who is well related to a couple of Group winners over middle distances. Trainer has a 17 per-cent strike rate with two-year-olds so this filly the most appealing debutant.
120,000gns yearling by Charm Spirit ran with promise on debut when third at Newmarket before finishing ninth at Goodwood in a race where Alhakmah was second. A little unlucky there so chance to get a bit closer but turnaround unlikely.
