Shared the spoils in a Newbury maiden before running a solid race in a much stronger contest at Ascot. Those two races were over 7f and this drop in trip may not be ideal.
Signs of ability in both starts at Windsor. Qualifies for a handicap mark after this and that is likely to be his next port of call.
Tamayuz half-brother to Fakhoor and Amthaal, winners over 7f and 5f. Stable going particularly well and can ready one to win first time.
A €44,000 son of Haatef out of a useful French 7½f AW two-year-old winner. Showed some promise on debut at Newbury, but looks a work in progress.
Showcasing colt who cost 85,000 gns as a foal and is from the family of top sprinter Tante Rose. Leading stable in fine form, so he is one to note in the market on debut.
Placed in four of his five races. Failed to justify favouritism when runner-up at Catterick last time and looks vulnerable against a few of these rivals.
Dark Angel colt who cost a hefty 280,000 euros as a yearling and whose dam was placed in Listed company over 5f as a juvenile. Too green to do himself justice on debut at Windsor in June and is likely to do better after his break.
Well held on both starts, including when behind Sheila's Showcase at Ascot. Likely to do better when he goes handicapping.
Daughter of Exceed And Excel who is a half-sister to a couple of winners from 6f to 1m4f. Represents leading connections and the betting will be the best guide to her chance on debut.
Out of the frame on both starts at Windsor and Ffos Las. She will be able to run in handicaps after this and she should be seen to better effect in that sphere.
