Garswood colt, price slightly decreased as a yearling but still a 60,000gns purchase. Perfectly good introduction when a staying-on fourth at Redcar and this track should suit. Place chances at worst with a step forward here.
Price kept increasing through the ring and purchase din May by current connections for 52,000gns. Trip should be ideal for debut and yard have had a decent season with their 2yos. 12% strike rate with them at Nottingham too, so not discounted.
Doncaster Rover colt, ran well on Ripon debut but even better at Thirsk last time when a close fourth (and was first home in his group). Drop of rain might aid his cause but still looks one of the more likely players here.
Dandy Man colt that wasn't that far behind Four Wheel Drive on debut (just 2l away) and shaped nicely in the closing stages. Will know more today and has a chance of reversing the form for a yard with a 14% strike rate with their 2yos here.
From same yard as Four Wheel Drive but this one looks to need more time based on his last of eight debut effort at Yarmouth last week.
Cost £160,000 as a yearling and almost went some way towards paying a chink of that back when narrowly denied on debut here earlier in the month. That looks solid form and with likely conditions fine again, has to take high rank.
Breeding nothing to write home about and although he shaped well enough on his Lingfield debut, wasn't so good at Chelmsford last time. May be of more interest in nurseries after today.
Bred to have a bit of speed about him but yard not known for first time up 2yo winners and are 0-8 with them here. Best watched today.
Some stamina on the dam's side that suggests she'll want a bit further than this in time, but an interesting jockey booking for a big-name owner and yard have a 19% strike rate with their 2yos here. More interesting than a few. Watch the market.
Kodiac filly that cost €28,000 purchase as a yearling, mix of speed and stamina in the bloodlines and yard have a 17% strike rate with their 2yos here, so is at least worth a look in the market.
Qutob (8/13), Make A Wish (5/1), Camber (7/1), With Envy (12/1), Converter (16/1), Reconnaissance (16/1), Griggy (25/1), Four Wheel Drive (40/1), Double Coffee (50/1), Straitouttacompton (66/1), Kersall (100/1)
