16:35 Newcastle Wed 7 November 2018
Has shown some promise on both starts without looking as though a win is imminent though yard in excellent form at present and there could be more to come.
Stepped up on debut when second of 11 over 1m1f at Redcar on soft last week. The drop back in trip shouldn't be a concern and looks one of the likely ones.
Lawman colt who cost 22,000 gns as a yearling. Got the hang of things late on after slow start on Nottingham debut to eventually finish 5L seventh of ten behind some promising types. Looks sure to do better with that experience behind him.
32,000 gns yearling who is related to three winners from 6f to 1m. Hinted at ability on debut here but needs to step up plenty to figure here.
Has taken a step forward on each of his three runs at this trip and only weakened out of the frame close home when fourth of eight at Chelmsford last time.
Mukhadram colt whose sales price dropped from 22,000 gns as a foal to 4,500 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to three winners from 5f to 1m and dam won as a two-year-old over 7f.
£7,000 purchase in September. Shaped with promise when midfield on recent Newbury debut and that was a stronger contest. Yard going well at present and could step up on that with the experience gained.
Promising debut at this trip here but well below that form on subsequent visit to this venue when dropped to 7f. Back up in trip now but something to prove after latest.
Paco Boy gelding. Sales price dropped from £27,000 to £10,000 in April. Half-brother to winners at 6f and 7f and dam was a winner at up 1m1f. Stable also represented by Myklachi.
Best effort was in a 7f claimer at Redcar last time but that form needs plenty of improving on and readily passed over.
€42.000 Dalakhani filly who shaped with promise on recent Kempton debut when beaten less than 1L in fifth in a blanket finish. Not knocked about and open to improvement. Now tried in a hood.
£4,000 Cityscape filly. Related to Statsminster and Elite Icon who were winners over 1m6f. Likely to need more of a test next term.
