Class 5 | 1m | Good to Firm | 7 Runners | Turf
Off time: 14:17 | Winning time: 1m 41.5s
€85,000 yearling; first foal from a well related, but unraced dam; hails from a respected source of juvenile winners (stable 2yo's 40-276 (14%) in 2018), so interesting to see how she fares in the betting.
Unraced first foal by Mastercraftsman, out of a maiden dam (1m-1m4f); trainer continuing to knock in a steady stream of winners, but owner also represented by Blue Gardenia.
Unraced second foal by Mastercraftsman, out of the 1m winner Alegra; half-sister to the 1m4f Fibresand winner Amadeus; owner also represented by Arctic Fox.
€25,000 yearling; has the benefit of previous experience, albeit appearing to be very green when finishing seventh of nine at Carlisle (6f, good to firm; 33/1) in June; steps up 2f in trip.
Frankel filly who is a half-sister to two winners (6f-1m); started 5/2f, but looked in need of the experience when finishing sixth on debut at Goodwood (7f, Class 2) recently; this rates as an easier assignment, so should be highly competitive.
16,000 gns foal; third foal of an Italian winning (1m1f-1m2f) dam; half-sister to a couple of winners including Maybe Today (1m2f); others potentially more interesting, but the market should be informative.
$77,000 yearling; €270,000 juvenile; fifth foal out of the US stakes-placed 6f winner Stroll By; half-sister to US 5f turf winner March On; weakened on debut at Ascot last month (7f) and ideally needs to have strengthened up for that race.
Mehdaayih (4/6), Quintada (9/2), Arctic Fox (7/1), Eucalyptus (7/1), Amorously (10/1), Teresita Alvarez (11/1), Blue Gardenia (20/1), Laura Louise (33/1)
