Zoffany colt who cost €40,000 as a yearling. Shaped well amidst inexperience when 3¼L second of 10 to Cap Francais at Salisbury (1m) on debut, and built on that when winning over same C&D last time. Must defy a penalty, but still has leading claims.
Full-brother to connections' Group 3 Strensall Stakes winner City Style, but unfancied and shaped as if in need of the outing when down the field on debut at Sandown last month. Ought to improve somewhere down the line, but others preferred.
Son of Nathaniel who looked a long-term prospect when never out of the rear division on introduction at Bath recently, and likely this second start will come soon enough for him.
Shaped well despite looking green on debut at Newmarket, so rather disappointing that he didn't improve on the face of things at Musselburgh next time. Given a break since, and will do better, but needs this run for a handicap mark.
Brother to a couple of useful winners, but ignored in the market and ran moderately on racecourse bow at Yarmouth last month. Looks yard's second string on riding arrangements here.
Australia half-brother to useful 6f-1m winner Emperor Claudius and 7f-1¼m winner Dove Mountain. No easy task on debut, and best watched unless attracting support.
50,000 gns yearling out of a maiden half-sister to 1¼m Listed winner and Irish Oaks second Mot Juste. Kept on late on debut at Haydock, and ought to be much better for that initial experience.
Authorized half-brother to 1¾m winner Smart Champion out of a winning half-sister to useful 1¼m-1½m winner Gawdawpalin. Yard can ready a newcomer, and won't have to be a star to get involved on racecourse bow.
Full-brother to useful 2-y-o 1m½f winner Amedeo Modigliani, out of a daughter of Nassau & Sun Chariot Stakes winner Last Second. Badly in need of experience when last of 8 on debut at Kempton, and will do much better in time.
