Dragon Pulse colt, unsold as a yearling. Dam a juvenile winner on dirt at sprint trips. Yard not known for success with debutantes but worth a market check given his pedigree.
No Nay Never colt whose price rose from €8,000 to €75,000 as a yearling. May be in need of further but yard do well with their juveniles and not one to put a line through.
American Pharoah colt, cost $750,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to a 1m winner. Dam a Group 2 winner and half-sister to Group 1 winner Dutch Art. Not an obvious sprinter on pedigree but worthy of maximum respect on debut given his connections.
Dawn Approach colt, half-brother to three winners. Dam a Group 1 winner and sister to another Group 1 winner. Hard to imagine sprint trips being his game long term but he's well bred and worth a market check.
Siyouni colt, cost €130,000 as a foal and 200,000 gns as a yearling. Dam a juvenile/Group 2 winner and half-sister to a useful stayer. Interesting given his beautiful pedigree but may want further than this.
Equiano colt, cost 12,000 gns as a foal and €30,000 as a yearling. Half brother to four winning sprinters and dam also a sprinter, including as a juvenile. Bred for this sort of test and makes each-way appeal.
Karakontie filly, half-sister to 6f winner. Dam a 1m winner and sister to two more winners over middle distances. Yard debutantes can need the experience.
Kodiac filly, dam a half-sister to a 1m2f Group 2 winner. Sire does well with his sprinters and they tend to go with cut in the ground so not one to rule out on debut here.
