Four starts so far and went very close over 7f here on Fibresand debut last month. Winner of that race ran a cracker under a penalty at Newcastle next time and a repeat of that effort up in trip here will give him sound claims once more.
Declaration Of War colt cost $40,000 as a yearling and out of an unraced daughter of Curlin. Ran well on debut when a good second at Kempton over this trip and is bred to appreciate this surface. Excellent claims of going one better.
Olympic Glory colt who's price increased from €20,000 as a yearling to £33,000 as a two-year-old. trip looks a good starting point on debut and market likely to be informative.
Epaulette filly; first foal out of a unraced Shamardal mare that is closely related to a couple of smart performers including Group 1 winner Amadeus Wolf. Market will be a good guide on racecourse debut.
Assertive filly; second foal out of a 1m4f-2m winner. Every chance she will need a bit further in time. Market check needed on debut all the same.
Finished sixth in two starts to date, over 7f at Wolverhampton on debut and over 1m at Lingfield last time out. This yard's runners always worth a second look but needs to improve here.
Kodiac filly, cost 30,000 gns as a foal and 80,000 gns as a yearling. Shaped with lots of promise when just behind Barossa Red her over 7f on debut. Extra furlong looks a plus and sure to improve on that effort.
