Promise over C&D in June and stepped up on that effort following a break when second of 12 at Newbury last month. Progressing well and is a leading contender.
Kodiac colt who cost £48,000 this year and whose dam won over 1m2f. Stable going really well and he is well worth noting on debut as he represents last year's winning combination.
Has beaten only one rival in races over 5f at Sandown and this track. Should do better in time, probably when competing in handicaps.
Gelded son of Havana Gold who cost £16,000 as a yearling and is from the family of the talented Communique. Finished in mid-division on debut at Beverley and should be wiser for the experience.
Showcasing colt who cost 110,000 gns as a yearling and is a brother to two winners from 6f to 1m. Really promising runner-up on debut at Newbury despite running green and normal progress should see him in the shake-up.
Runner-up in races at Yarmouth and Windsor, latterly when sent off favourite. Brings solid form to the table and looks a leading contender.
Well held in races at Newmarket (6f) and Sandown (1m). Hard to make a case for and is expected to be more effective in nurseries.
Dream Ahead filly who is a sister to winning sprinter Raucous. Speedy pedigree, but is likely to need this first appearance on the racecourse. Positive jockey booking lends encouragement, however.
Mayson filly who is a sister to 6f/7f Fibresand winner Lord Oberon, and a half-sister to winners Medici Banchiere (5f at two) and Vimy Ridge (5f-6f inc at two). Needed her debut run at Pontefract and needs to show significant improvement.
Coach House filly from the family of King's Stand Stakes winner Bolshoi. Big price when seventh of eight on debut at Haydock and probably needs time to develop.
