Failed to build on debut win when disappointing at Thirsk in easier conditions. Pulled out of a Haydock engagement due to soft going and concern about the recent rain again.
Gelded son of Dandy Man who finished well for a good second on debut at Catterick and looked likely to benefit for the experience. With improvement rates a leading candidate.
Dandy Man colt out of a Street Cry mare who looks a likely type on debut for a leading trainer of juveniles. Price rose to £100,000 as a yearling and the market should prove informative..
Son of Orientor who is the first foal from a dam that won over 5f. Sent off long odds and well beaten on debut. Hard to make a case for.
By Orientor and plenty of speed in pedigree. Got worked up beforehand and missed the break on debut before making a good impression despite greenness. Looks one to follow and a leading contender.
25,000 gns Famous Name colt out of a 7f Group 3 winner. Related to four winners including useful performers Rock Jock and Breden. Well beaten at long odds on debut and hard to make a case for on this big drop in trip.
Yet to make an impression in better races at Goodwood and Newmarket and needs to find improvement despite representing leading trainer.
