$80,000 yearling, €60,000 juvenile; fifth foal; half-brother to AW winners Giantouch (1m2f) and Candy Reel (7½f); dam a 7f juvenile/1m2f Group 3 winner.
$300,000 yearling; midfield finish on debut (weakened) at Newbury (1m, good to soft); switch to Polytrack looks to be a plus based on pedigree.
Third foal; brother to the 1m-1m3f AW winner Mootasadir; represents a top trainer operating a 23% strike-rate at Chelmsford.
77,000gns yearling; first foal out of a French Listed-placed 1m juvenile winner (Double Diamond).
Kept on from the rear to finish just over 7L fifth of 13 to Reeves at Doncaster (7f, good to soft) a fortnight ago; dam was a 1m-1m2f winner, so this step up in trip should suit.
Second foal out of a modest 1m1f-1m2f winning dam (Atacama Sunrise); likely to fare better for this initial racecourse experience; others more appealing.
Sixth foal, half-sister to Fireglow (5f-1m4f), Paschendale (7f-1m2f) and Moon Trip (1m-2m); ran far better than the finishing position suggests behind Accommodate (third has won since) on debut over 7f here in October.
27,500gns yearling; fifth foal; half-sister to winners Queen Blossom (1m-1m4f), Winged Spur (1m-1m2f) and Valcarlos (1m); trainer is operating a 19% strike-rate at Chelmsford.
Fourth foal (10,000gns vendor yearling); half-sister to the US 1m turf winner Excellent Sunset; others more appealing based upon pedigree/price.
