Lightly raced four-year-old who went through the sales ring for just 1,000gns prior to joining this yard. Has clearly had his issues and hard to fancy at present.
Half-brother to five winners who originally fetched 57,000 gns as a yearling but joined current yard for £5,500 in November. Likely to be playing a supporting role on this occasion.
Son of Bungle Inthejungle who fetched £56,000 as a yearling, but showed next to nothing on debut here. Had more use made of him last time but offered little when it mattered.
Iffrajj colt from family of smart winners Trans Island and Mujaazef. Showed lots of promise when second of ten on debut. Got worked up at the start when disappointing next time and gelded since. Off since June but has the best form on offer.
Newcomer by Pastoral Pursuits is a half-brother to a 1m6f AW winner out of a placed dam over 7f-1m1f. Showed up well on debut and will know a lot more this time.
€65,000 Lope De Vega colt has looked too keen on both previous starts. Could be a surprise package if settling better.
By Coach House out of a mare who won two minor sprints for this trainer. Tailed off last on debut and a forlorn hope on that showing.
One of two for his trainer in this and the market should be informative. Contested a race that has worked out well last time, but a line through the third gives him something to find with his stable companion.
Dutch Art filly whose dam was an AW winner. Showed plenty in a strong looking Kempton novice on debut and does not need to find much more to be competitive in this company.
Half-sister to a Group 3 winner who was fourth on debut in a race where the first two pulled clear. That run looks flattering judged on her next run.
Down the field at long odds here over Christmas and Paddy's Pursuit is almost certainly the yard's main hope this time.
Cape Cross half-sister to winning miler Ghadaayer and triple staying AW winner Given Choice. Unfancied on debut when fading into mid-division and others have promised more.
