13:05 Nottingham Wed 7 November 2018
Sepoy colt, cost 13,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to two winners. Dam a US dirt winner as a juvenile over this trip. Withdrawn due to passport issues on intended recent Newmarket debut. Watch.
15,000gns foal. €38,000 yearling. Half-brother to seven winners, out of 6f (at two) and 7f winner. Stable in decent form, but has had just one two-year-old winner in recent years. Watch on debut.
60,000gns foal. 40,000gns yearling. Closely related to 7f-1m two-year-old winner Washaar (inc Listed), out of placed 1m2f half-sister to three winners from 1m-1m4f. Stable juveniles 12% this season. Market check.
Showed some promise on debut (7f, AW), but well below that level back at Wolverhampton (1m½f) last time. Will need improvement.
50-1 and well held on debut (1m, good) at Salisbury last month. Needs a lot of improvement on that to figure.
Showed some promise on debut at Windsor (1m, soft), when 80-1, but not as good last time and already looking at though he will need a handicap mark to work with.
First foal. Dam 6f-1m winner. Stable not known for debut winners and looks one to watch.
€29,000 yearling. £25,000 two-year-old. Dam 1m2f winner. Stable's two-year-olds at 14% (above its five-year average) this season and has had debut winners among that. Market check.
5-4 favourite and beaten just a neck on debut at Yarmouth (7f, good to soft) in August. Has been given time before this return to the track, for which he steps up in trip. Leading contender.
7-1 and therefore his debut has to be filed under 'disappointing', despite being badly bumped leaving the stalls at Newmarket last month. We can anticipate a fair bit better this time.
Three of his four half-siblings have won at trips from 7f-1m½f, while his dam was a 6f-7f winner (inc at two/Group 2). Stable on a high and juveniles have had a good season. Likely to make a good debut.
€40,000 yearling. Half-brother to three winners (one of them at two), out of 1m1½f winner. Stable 16% with turf juveniles this season, so precautionary market check suggested.
33-1 and well beaten on recent Catterick debut for Roger Fell. Since changed hands, but can only watch on first run for this trainer.
