Dubawi colt who failed to progress from his debut when weakening from the front on soft ground. Possible this surface will be the key and not one to lose faith in yet. Stable won this in 2010 and 2011 and also run Frederickbarbarosa.
Progressed from debut when a close fourth in a strong conditions event on the AW. Stable won a division of this last year and sets a strong standard.
Unraced son of Epaulette and a half-brother to a number of winners including the useful Snow Trooper. Stable in flying form but this looks a tough race on debut.
Aussie Rules colt, outran his odds when a promising third on debut but was very disappointing next time out (well behind Alrajaa). Gelded since and needs to bounce back.
Son of Kodiac with plenty of speed in pedigree and cost 150,000 gns as a yearling. Stable's runners tend to improve for the run but one of the more likely debutantes.
25,000gns son of Garswood out of a 1m4f winner in France and was well beaten at long odds on debut. Up a furlong but will need considerably further in time and remains best watched.
Unraced gelded son of Oasis Dream representing a stable whose runners tend to improve for their debuts and apprentice has yet to ride a winner. Others preferred.
Holy Roman Emperor colt who cost 210,000 gns as a yearling. Will appreciate further in time but interesting on debut for leading stable. Market support would be significant.
Scat Daddy colt who was resold for €320,000 but yet to beat a horse home when tailed off in both starts to date. Impossible to make a case for.
Exceed And Excel colt cost €190,000 and improved from debut when making late progress for an albeit well-held third on the AW. Stable won this in 2016 but has a bit to find and likely to come into his own over further.
Son of Invincible Spirit and dam was a 6f Group 1 winner in South Africa. Plenty of speed in pedigree and a half-brother to Group 2 winner Heavy Metal. Interesting debutante for stable who continue in good form.
Cost £45,000 as a yearling but little promise at big odds when finishing last on debut. First-time visor added and easy to oppose.
Price doubled from 25,000 gns as a foal to 50,000 gns as a yearling. Trainer's runners tend to improve for their debuts but worth a check in the market. Stable won this in 2016 and also run Rayig.
Bated Breath colt who cost £270,000 as a yearling and represents a leading stable. Eye-catching jockey booking for debut and well worth noting in the betting.
Cheap purchase who has shown nothing when only beating one rival home in two starts. Hard to make a case for here.
