Zebedee gelding who cost 5,500 gns as a yearling and whose dam is an unraced half-sister to two winners over 1m. Stable not noted for first-time-out winners so this one is best watched.
Gelded son of Dylan Thomas who is a half-brother to two winners from 5f to 1m2f. Likely to need this debut run.
Dansili colt who fetched 150,000 gns as a two-year-old and is a half-brother to five winners over a variety of distances. Positive jockey booking suggests top trainer means business as this one makes its debut
Gelded son of Derby winner Australia whose only run saw him finish well down the field at Kempton after starting slowly. Almost certainly capable of better.
Dark Angel gelding who fetched 68,000 gns as a yearling and is from the family of the top-class Flintshire. Leading stable has started the season in fine style so any money for him on debut should be noted.
Kingman colt who cost 450,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-brother to six winners, one of them a Group 1 performer. Very appealing pedigree and is another for whom a market check is advised.
By Maxios and cost €130,000 as a yearling. Eighth of 12 on debut at Lingfield in November and has since undergone a wind operation. Improvement needed to figure.
Colt by Declaration Of War who cost €90,000 as a yearling and is a half-brother to six winners from 7f to 1m1f. Best watched on debut unless there is market support for him.
Fair level of form to be fourth and runner-up in two starts over this trip at Kempton. Reverts to turf and looks a leading contender with experience under his belt.
Limited promise in starts at Sandown and Salisbury. Looks one for further down the line, probably in handicap company.
Stable companion of Global Freedom who has shown only glimpses of talent in AW races at Chelmsford and Wolverhampton. Much more needed on turf debut.
Well held over C&D on debut in October and again cut little ice next time on the AW at Lingfield. Likely to do better in time, but best watched until he shows more.
The only filly in the field, she is by War Command and cost £95,000 as a yearling. A half-sister to a 5f winner, she also has stronger stayers in her family.
