65,000gns yearling, £1,000 Don May 2018. Third foal. Half-brother to 5f (at two)/6f winner Time And Place and 7f (at two)/1m2f winner Belle Travers. Dam 6f (two) Listed winner. Stable 50% with its few turf juveniles this season. Market check.
Best effort in four starts to date was when beaten 1½L at Thirsk (7f, good to soft) last month. Below that level on AW last time, but prominent style suits this circuit and he could be heavily involved.
50-1 and beaten 15L on debut at Nottingham in May. Should be capable of improving on that, but may have to wait for other days.
Fifth live foal. Closely related to 6f/7f AW winner Excellent Jem. Dam 1m1f-1m4f winner. Stable's runners in decent form, though its turf juvenile runners are at a lower-than-average 7% strike-rate this season. Market check probably prudent.
Has gone close at both Ascot (7f, good) and more recently Ffos Las (7½f, good). Looks one of the leading contenders here on that evidence.
0-18 ad despite finishing a distant second last time over C&D, she looks out of her depth against the main protagonists here.
Well beaten in two starts at Chelmsford and Thirsk over 1m2f/1m4f so far. Marked drop in trip today. Can only watch.
Well beaten in all three starts to date, who of them over C&D. Readily opposed.
