Son of Bated Breath whose price rose from 17,000 gns as a foal to 120,000 gns as a yearling. Showed much improved effort to win going away on second start at Redcar two weeks ago. Should be more to come and a player once again under a penalty.
Big prices, green and outpaced on both starts so far. Likely to be a similar story here and will be more suited to handicaps over further on the back of this.
New Approach colt who has a good mixed pedigree. Related to several winners and bred for this surface so interesting to see what the market makes of him on debut. Yard yet to have a two-year-old winner this season.
Well bred Dubawi colt couldn't get competitive on debut when 8L 10th of 13 at Ascot over 7f. Better effort when headed late on at Newmarket last time and further progress is more than possible.
Lope De Vega colt out of a mare who won over 5f as a two-year-old. Never involved over this trip at Wolverhampton on debut but should know more this time around.
Zoffany gelding who's price rose form 11,000 gns as a foal to £22,000 as a yearling. Dam was a winner over 5f. Market a good guide on debut.
Pivotal colt who was sent off at 33/1 on debut and weakened to be beaten a long way over 1m (good) at Newmarket. Drop in trip should help and should be more streetwise this time.
Son of Scat Daddy that fetched £110,000. Improved on debut effort at Ffos Las when a close-up third at Wolverhampton (1m½f, AW) last time. Drops back in trip here and needs another step forward.
A €7,000 yearling, Ruler Of The World colt changed hands for 90,000 gns as a two-year-old. Promise on debut at Leicester before finishing tailed off at Goodwood last time. Needs to bounce back here.
