Cost 40,000gns as a foal and is related to a few French middle distance winners. Well fancied on debut when well held but was slowly away and unsuited by a slow tempo. Big improvement necessary but wouldn't be a surprise.

Had been seemingly improving with racing and sets the standard on his Newmarket third. However was well below that at Newcastle and although dropping down to a maiden for the first time needs to show he handles an AW surface.

By Galileo out of an unraced Indian Ridge mare. Starts life over a suitable distance and for a powerful stable. Looks a likely type and market should be a good guide.

11/4

Cost 54,000 gns as a foal, 70,000 gns as a yearling and then price rose to €340,000 as a juvenile. Improved with each of three starts last year and now gelded. Likely to progress with age and looks a leading hope.

Went close in a Wetherby bumper on racecourse bow last December but form tailed off in three subsequent outings. Well beaten on Flat debut following wind surgery and easily overlooked.

Heavily beaten third on debut but was green and stable's runners tend to improve for the experience. Extra test of stamina will suit but this looks a tough ask at this stage.

Nicely bred filly who was a beaten favourite on debut at Longchamp before being picked up for just 3,000 gns in July. Really caught the eye running on strongly on UK and stable debut and has plenty of potential.

Daughter of Soldier Hollow who has been well held in both runs and showed less on her second start than her debut. Easy to overlook.

Betting

Forecast

Lacustre (15/8), Profound (11/4), Oscar's Ridge (3/1), Mainsail Atlantic (5/1), Baileys Artist (16/1), Jazz Walk (20/1), Perfect Myth (50/1), Principia (50/1), Salve Helena (66/1)

Verdict

LACUSTRE could prove to be a bargain buy and looked as though she would only improve with experience when running on well off a slow pace on her British debut. Profound rates the main danger for a trainer whose runners only tend to improve with time. If Mainsail Atlantic can produce his best form then he's a clear danger but this surface remains a query. Baileys Artist is worth noting in the betting and could leave his debut behind while Oscar's Ridge is a very notable newcomer and market support would be interesting.
