48,000gns juvenile; shown a consistent level of form in all three starts so far (6f), including on Tapeta at Newcastle latest when finishing 3½L fourth to Concierge (just behind Brandy Spirit) in the first AW Championships FTQ Conditions Stakes.
€21,000 yearling; 50/1 and slowly away on debut at Wolverhampton (6f) 12-days ago when finishing last of seven to Mubakker; considerably more required.
45,000gns foal, 50,000gns juvenile; seventh foal, half-brother to four winners including Cricklewood Green (7f-1m) and Act Of Valour (1m2f Flat/2m hurdle). Hooded for debut when finishing a fine 3L third to Concierge at Newcastle (6f).
Cost £100,000 as a juvenile as a half-brother to the talented Hamza (5f-7f Group 3 winner); remains a maiden after five previous attempts; chance on his better efforts, but fairly sluggish in his races of late, so needs to up his game.
€105,000 yearling (€80,000 juvenile); showed only marginal improvement from first start to second when finishing 6¾L fourth of eight to Aplomb at Yarmouth (6f, good to soft) last month; AW debut.
€14,000 yearling; tenth foal; half-brother to winners Vocational (5f), Sunbreak (7f-1m) and Sandy's Row (1m2f); market a useful guide in assessing his chances.
Brother to the Greek 6½f/GB 1m AW winner Elementary; made a promising debut at Redcar (7f, good) in October when caught close home by Mymidons (beaten 1L), but didn't necessarily progress on his next start at Doncaster; back in trip for AW switch.
24,000gns foal; 40,000gns juvenile; first foal from an unraced dam who was a sister to the 6f-7f winner Amary and the 1m-1m2f Hong Kong scorer Wayfoong Express.
Cost £56,000 as a yearling, but left Charles Hills for just 2,000gns at the Newmarket Sales last month after finishing last on both starts on turf (6f) in August.
£12,000 yearling; has shown little promise in two starts so far, including at odds of 100/1 on debut over C&D in early October.
