Raven's Pass colt, cost $7,000 as a yearling and belied his long odds when staying on well despite greenness in a hot York maiden. Holds a Group 1 entry and sets the standard.
Son of Born To Sea who showed nice improvement when stepped up to a mile on his second start. May need further so a surprise to see him back in trip and more progress required.
Has taken a step forwards in each of his first four starts and just touched off over a mile here last time. Likely to go close again.
Son of Le Havre who cost €18,000 as a yearling and is gelded ahead of debut. Doesn't catch the eye on breeding and best watched unless significant market support.
Son of Style Vendome who cost €25,000 and ran a promising debut over a mile here (two places behind Dancin Boy). Should improve for the run but may come into his own over further next season.
By Footstepsinthesand and gelded ahead of debut having cost 7,500 gns as a yearling. Market may prove the best guide.
Price increased €10,000 from foal to yearling and shaped with plenty of promise after missing the break on debut but was most disappointing next time at Pontefract. That run leaves questions.
Slade Power colt that cost 20,000 gns as a yearling. Has been too green to do himself justice in first two runs and while could easily turn that around for top stable, does have a lot to find.
Cheap purchase who missed the break on debut when not disgraced at this track but well below that when never figuring at Beverley. Leaves her with plenty to find.
Sir Percy filly who barring her one encounter with soft ground has raced to a consistent level on her other three starts. Likely to go well again.
