13:50 Brighton Tue 9 October 2018
Still a maiden after eight starts but ran best race so far when a good second at Chepstow (7f, good to soft) last time. That just about sets the standard and yard do very well here.
Off the mark in a nursery at Ffos Las (6f, good to soft) last time. Has loads to find on the figures here though and up against it for a repeat bid.
Kyllachy colt that cost 21,000 gns as a yearling but went unsold at £19,000 as a two-year-old. Half-brother to four winners and makes some appeal on paper.
Slade Power colt that cost 20,000 gns as a yearling. Ran green when fourth on debut and sure to know more this time around. Player.
Shaped quite well when third of 10 to Eesha's Smile in 7½f novice at Beverley in August, but took a backward step at Musselburgh next time, and would need to improve on best form to figure here.
Lope de Vega half-brother to smart 6f7f winner Naadirr among others. Has started slowly on both starts so far so that is a concern. Finished very strongly at Beverley and this track should suit. Major player if breaking on terms.
Having first start for this yard when not beaten very far over this C&D three weeks ago. Will have claims once again if able to show some improvement now.
Struggled when finishing 12th of 14 on debut at Windsor (6f, good-to-firm) and only fared slightly better at Lingfield (7f, AW) last time. More needed to be involved.
