16:25 Newbury Sat 13 April 2019
Gelded son of Exceed and Excel who was bought for 110,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-brother to a winner over 6f. Stable won a division of this race last year so he is one to consider.
Kodiac gelding who cost 120,000 gns as a yearling and is from a successful family in Germany. One to note in the betting for stable which does well at this meeting.
New Approach colt who is a half-brother to three winners from 1m to 1m6f. No show on debut over C&D in October and may need more time and a longer trip.
By French sire Siyouni, he cost €160,000 as a yearling and his dam won over 1m2f in Listed company. Nice pedigree, but stable not noted for sending out too many winning debutants.
Colt by Dubawi who is a a half-brother to a 6f juvenile winner and whose dam won over 1m. Represents leading connections and is of interest on debut.
Rip Van Winkle colt who cost 30,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-brother to four winners. Slowly away and little impact on debut at Chelmsford in September so much more needed after a wind operation.
Debutant by Sea The Stars who is a half-brother to Group 1 winner Rajeem. Nothing wrong with that pedigree and one to note if the betting speaks in his favour.
Fair efforts at Leicester and Wolverhampton in the autumn. Likely to do better as a three-year-old, especially when he steps up in distance further down the line.
By Lope De Vega, his dam was a middle-distance winner. Fine debut effort when nose second of 13 at this course in September and extra distance of this race can only help. Leading contender.
Kingman colt who cost 180,000 gns as a foal and a whopping €650,000 as a a yearling. A half-brother to two winners in France, he is of obvious interest on debut for leading yard.
Dansili colt who is a half-brother to three winners from 1m to 1m2f. May need this debut run, but is a well-bred sort who is worth checking in the betting.
New Approach filly who was bought for 115,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-sister to 7f winner Coral Sea. Hooded for debut run and is another worth noting for market support.
