Noble Mission colt, half-brother to an AW winner over this trip. Dam a 1m dirt winner and sister to two Grade 2 winners. Produced a promising debut at Sandown but will probably need a sizable step forward here and second string on jockey bookings.
Australia colt, cost 190,000 gns as a yearling and 240,000 gns as a Breeze-up purchase. Dam a winner over 7f, half-sister to a Group 1 winner and a UAE Derby (dirt) winner. Yard's debutantes often know their job and he's a fascinating contender.
Shamardal colt, cost 500,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to four winners including a pair of Group 2 winners. Dam 1m winner. This likely to be his minimum as far as the trip is concerned but yard can ready a debutante and he's beautifully bred.
Camelot colt, half-brother to five winners including a Group 1 winner over an extended 6f. Yard can ready one for a debut and he makes plenty of appeal on pedigree.
Raven's Pass colt, half-brother to three winners including a Listed winner. Dam a half-sister to two useful milers. Looked like he was in need of the run on debut when better was expected (sent off 9/4). Likely we'll see better here.
Dubawi colt, dam a Group 2 winner, half sister to Group 3 winner. Very interesting that Dettori sides with this colt over one with experience for the same trainer and yard are prolific with their juveniles. May need further but can't be ruled out.
Cima De Triomphe filly, dam a 1m winner on turf in France, half-sister to a Listed performer. Others make more appeal on paper.
