Daughter of Archipenko who cost just £800 as a yearling. Belied that price-tag when a creditable fourth of 11 to Meringue in a C&D novice last month. Solid place claims if she can build on that now.
Runner-up on debut here (7f) in June, and matched that form at second attempt when 2L second of 11 to Meringue over C&D last time. Just about sets the standard on that form, and ought to go well.
Footstepsinthesand half-sister to7f/1m winner Rayoumti and 2-y-o 6f winner Emef Rock out of an unraced half-sister to top-class miler Intikhab. Appeals on pedigree, but yard 0-24 with 2-y-o's on AW in last couple of years.
€18,000 yearling out of a 5f listed winner, and bred for speed, so worry that she is making a late debut at this trip. Hard to weigh up, and market should be a useful guide.
Showed a bit more dash than on debut last time, but ultimately well beaten again, and one for low-grade handicaps after another outing.
Dawn Approach half-sister to 6f/7f winner Dealer's Choice, out of a winner in US. Yard 6-36 with juveniles here in last two years, and this debutante is one to bear in mind.
Bred for middle-distances, so did well given relative test of speed when 3¼L second to Meringue at Wolverhampton on recent debut. Should improve, for all she seemed pretty clued up there.
Mukhadram filly who was bought for £14,000 this year and is a half-sister to a couple of winners at around 1m. Showed ability when 2¾L third of 7 to Self Assessment over 7f at Wolverhampton, and type to improve a fair bit for that introduction.
Dam won over 1m as a 2-y-o, and also took Fred Winter at Cheltenham. This filly hasn't shown much of that ability in two starts, but may do better when handicapping.
Well held on 6f debut, but showed more when 5¾L third of 7 to Concello in 7f maiden at Salisbury last time. Needs to find a further chunk of improvement to be competitive here.
