20:00 Newcastle Thu 11 April 2019
First run for this yard having previously been with William Haggas (sold for £5,500 in January). Finished second over C&D on his debut but disappointed on his subsequent two starts; has something to prove but worth noting any market confidence.
Still a maiden after 18 Flat runs and isn't one to be interested in having been well beaten in a variety of races. Always behind when last seen; back down in trip but would need a miracle to win this.
Five-year-old who showed very little in bumpers before having his attentions turned to the Flat of late. Improved from his initial run when second over 1m here last time; had no chance with easy winner but showed potential for handicaps.
Looked short of stamina when tried in a bumper for Lucinda Egerton (finished last of seven). Has twice run to a very modest level at best over C&D for her current handler; not one to be troubling the principals.
Half-brother to three winners although his pedigree is rather a mixed one; showed a very smart turn of foot to land a 7f Kempton minor event on debut. That came as something of a surprise but he was well on top at the finish; progress not ruled out.
Well found in the market for both his starts at 6f on turf he didn't quite fulfil his obvious debut promise on his second start (still a very sound piece of form). The length of his absence could be a worry; from a top yard with a good record here.
Very much the best of the newcomers on his 6f turf debut at Doncaster last November before failing to improve for the switch to the AW over C&D. Now gelded he's the sort to make more impact as a three-year-old for a top class yard.
Well supported on his C&D debut (finished second) he didn't quite live up to the promise he showed on his debut switched to turf. Not ideally placed though (still travelled well) he wasn't knocked about and remains with potential.
Hard to envisage this newcomer getting involved whose price dropped by £25,000 from when he was sold as a yearling. Dam was a juvenile 5f winner; he's been gelded for his debut; best watched.
Showed obvious promise when finishing fourth of 14 over 6f here last November. Looked on that occasion as though 7f would suit; remains one to enter calculations if he doesn't need this run after an absence.
Two runs as a two-year-old both suggested that he would need time although he did show a little ability on each occasion. Needs this one run for a mark and would be the type to garner more interest in a low grade handicap over 7f plus.
Newcomer for a yard with a good strike-rate here (24%); just 2-10 with three-year-old debutantes (both winners well supported). Half-brother to Spirit of Belle (winner at up to 1m); hood on for his debut, one to note for market positivity.
Debutante (cost 12,000 guineas as a juvenile) out of dam who was a winner at up to 7f (juvenile 6f winner). Stable not really known for debut winners of this age but are 1-3 here; scored with a 33-1 shot in 2017 (last two of this ilk well beaten).
