Full-brother to 6f/7f winner Poetic Guest, out of a winning half-sister to smart 5f-1m winner Alo Pura. Already gelded, but that isn't a great concern at this level, and yard enjoying a good campaign with its juveniles.
Improved from debut to run well at Leicester next time at big odds, and proved that was no fluke when second of 17 to More Than This in 7f nursery at Goodwood last time. Big chance on that form.
Price increased to £25,000 when sent to the sales earlier this year, but makes fairly limited appeal on pedigree (half-brother to a winning hurdler), and yard's youngsters generally better for a run.
28,000 gns purchase by Dandy Man. Shaped fairly well when mid-field on debut here (6f), and likely to do better at this trip given dam stayed 1¾m.
Camacho colt whose priced dropped to £16,000 as a yearling. Yard just 1-83 with two year-olds in last five years, and this one looks a long-term prospect if anything.
Son of Epaulette who was a cheap purchase at just 3,000 gns, and hasn't looked much of a bargain in two runs at Wolverhampton to date.
Cheap purchase who is bred to need a much stiffer test and has been well beaten in two starts at up to 6f. One for handicaps in time, but of no immediate interest here.
Delegator half-brother to 1m-1¾m winner Echo Brava and recent 1m winner Junoesque. Represents same connections as Lynchpin, and market should be useful in separating the pair.
Cheap purchase, but hinted at ability when sixth of 12 to Taylormade at Yarmouth on debut. Should improve, but this looks tough.
