A 30,000 gns puchase as a yearling who is a full-brother to 6f/7f winner Poetic Guest, out of a winning half-sister to smart 5f-1m winner Alo Pura. Good deal of promise when fourth of nine on debut at Newmarket and likely to go close this time.
Son of Equiano who went unsold as a two-year-old but is from the family of a couple of middle-distance Group race winners. Promise on debut when fourth of five over 1m at Brighton and this drop in trip may suit.
Rip Van Winkle colt who cost 30,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-brother to four winners. Worth a market check on his debut.
Gelded son of Havana Gold who is a half-brother to a 7f AW winner. Outpaced over C&D on debut in June and needs to show dramatic improvement to figure.
Stepped up on Doncaster debut run when close fourth over 6f at this venue. Shaped as though this greater stamina test would suit, so has to enter calculations.
Son of Olympic Glory who cost €22,000 as a yearling and is a half-brother to a 7f winner in France. Represents a leading stable and is one to note in the betting.
Has failed to beat a rival in both starts at Thirsk and this venue. Impossible to recommend on the evidence so far.
Havana Gold filly who fetched £22,000 as a yearling and is a half-sister to Desert Cross, a winner up to 1m6f. Likely to need the experience as she makes her racecourse bow.
Signs of ability in races over 5f and 6f. Pedigree suggests this trip will suit, but she may be better suited to nurseries after this.
Bated Breath filly who cost only 800 gns this year, but is a half-sister to four winners. Outpaced last of seven on debut at Wolverhampton and needs to show considerably more.
