18:10 Newcastle Wed 7 November 2018
£2,200 first foal. No sign of ability at big prices in three bumpers and now makes belated debut on the Flat.
Tailed off only start at two for Dermot Weld. Bought for just 800 gns a year ago by present connections and didn't shape too badly in a maiden at this track but does have over 5L to make up on Kingdom Brunel
Didn't make the track for John Gosden but bought by current connections for 17,000 gns in July and has shown ability in both starts for in-form trainer. Probably improved again last time when trying this trip and could improve again.
Runner up on debut but that was a very weak maiden and then ran badly when dropped into selling company on second start. Drops down in trip now but plenty to prove after latest.
No show in a pair of Redcar maidens and needs to improve massively for first go at this longer trip.
No sign of ability in three maidens ranging from 7f to 1m4f at huge odds and has a handicap mark of just 45. Easily passed over.
Showed little in Lingfield debut in June but did step up on that form at Chelmsford last month despite her odds off 66/1. In good hands and may be capable of improvement at this longer trip.
