Much improved from debut when winning 6f maiden at Pontefract last time by nk from Reeves. Bred to improve again at 7f, so one to keep in mind despite his penalty.
By Oasis Dream from a fine middle-distance family. Only tenth of 11 in a C&D maiden on debut last month, but field finished in something of a heap, and he wasn't beaten far. Tongue tied now, and should see it out better.
Has an ordinary pedigree and sent off at 150/1 for Newmarket debut, but travelled easily for much of the way before fading. Interesting to see if he can build on that.
Lope de Vega half-brother to useful 1m-1¾m winner Passepartout and 1½m winner Gala. Well held on debut at Lingfield recently, and looks one for handicaps over further in time.
Teofilo half-brother to useful 5f-7f winner Enlace and 2-y-o 6f winner Overstep. Already gelded, and yard's only juvenile winner this year had benefit of a previous run.
Has shown plenty of raw ability amidst inexperience in two starts, finishing fourth of 12 to Senza Limiti in 7f novice at Salisbury last time. May be seen in better light when handicapping.
Dubawi colt out of 7f Listed winner Tantshi. Looked short of peak fitness when a 15L sixth of 14 to Skardu in a 7f maiden at Newmarket last month. Will improve, although has something to find on form.
Unfancied, but shaped with promise when eighth of 14 to Fintas in a 7f novice at Chelmsford starting out. Will improve, although appeals as one for the longer term.
Hails from smart sprinting family of Swiss Spirit and Swiss Diva, and showed something to work on when eighth of 14 to Politicise in 7f novice at Newbury last month. Not easily ruled out.
Nothing much on pedigree, and soundly beaten on debut at Catterick when a big price.
Dream Ahead half-sister to 7f-1m1f winner Beatbybeatbybeat. Showed ability starting out when sixth of 10 to Annecy in 7f AW novice at Lingfield in August. Much more required here, however.
Morpheus half-sister to 5f/6f winner Zeeoneandonly and 1m winner Schimea. Jockey booking makes her of some interest, but no easy task on racecourse bow, and would need to be useful to take a hand.
