3/1

Finished fourth on debut over 7f at Yarmouth (race worked out well; not knocked about) before scoring on his switch to the AW off a six month break. Didn't really need to improve on debut effort, won readily over 1m (beat a promising newcomer).

Overcame inexperience late last year when winning on his two-year-old debut over 1m on the AW at Lingfield (beat a few subsequent winners). Very much the type to improve this year for a yard that have made a good start to the turf season.

Trainer in excellent form (double at Newcastle on Thursday) but will do well to turn this one around from two modest efforts so far on turf and AW. Made very little impression over 1m2f last time at Doncaster; hard to recommend.

Both runs as a juvenile came with give in the ground and faces much quicker conditions here returning from an absence. Raced over 7f on both occasions (finished last of nine last time); hard to see him winning this given his two starts so far.

Shadwell-bred three-year-old who was sold cheaply (£5,500) in October and now makes debut for a yard who are 0-16 with newcomers of this age. Winners in the pedigree but hard to see him winning this; looks one for the longer-term.

3/1

Newcomer; brother to useful 1m-1m2f winner Melodious and half-brother to 7f-1m1f winner Three Cliffs; dam also winner at up to 1m4f. Trainer 4-11 with three-year-old debutantes here; 29% strike-rate with this type overall; one to monitor closely.

39-2OR:
33/1

One of two runners in the race for this yard; offered something to work on last year in a couple of modest starts although didn't improve from his debut. Steps up to 1m now from 7f, still has plenty to learn, vulnerable in this grade.

39-2OR:

Gelded before he ran he looks the better of the yard's two runners although his form is still of a modest nature. Showed more on his second run when switched to the Tapeta at Newcastle; looked unsuited by the 7f trip and needs 1m plus.

Trainer no great shakes with newcomers of this age and this son of Showcasing is likely to need this experience. Third foal of a USA 1m winner (cost €85,000 as a yearling) he's best watched unless the market says otherwise.

38-11OR:
11/2

Would look to be the leading player of the two that the yard runs here having shown promise in a better race than this on debut as a two-year-old. 7f looked a little sharp for her on that occasion, now up to 1m; open to improvement, interesting sort.

38-11OR:
100/1

Newcomer out of a dam that was a winner at two over 7f and then over 1m4f (plenty of stamina right down the distaff side of the pedigree). Trainer has a 1-18 record with three-year-old debutantes, looks one for the longer term and longer trips.

38-11OR:
100/1

Travelled with little fluency or encouragement in two outings as a juvenile over sprint trips having her limitations well exposed. Makes little appeal back from an absence in company where she will struggle to trouble the principals.

38-11OR:
40/1

Trainer yet to have a newcomer of this age group win (0-20) with this stoutly bred individual (half-sister to smart stayer Lord Yeats) looking to need further. Dam also a strong influence for stamina; looks a longer-term project.

Forecast

Senza Limiti (1/1), Top Rank (6/4), Lehoogg (3/1), Great Example (3/1), Beautiful Gesture (11/2), Sweet Dreamer (16/1), Voiceoftheemirates (20/1), Mo Emmad Ali (33/1), Theatro (40/1), Ritchie Star (50/1), George Ridsdale (66/1), Ghathanfar (66/1), Black Kraken (66/1), Happy Hannah (100/1), Gloryella (100/1)

Verdict

The three penalised runners all have something more to offer although two of them Senza Limiti and Top Rank have absences to deal with; both come from yards that are adept at preparing one off a break though and a forward showing is expected from both. Lehoogg has a recent run and win on his side so has nothing to find in fitness terms but on form he looks to have to make further progress with his fellow winners. Potentially the most interesting runner is GREAT EXAMPLE a well-bred individual from a yard with a 36% strike-rate (4-11) with their three-year-old debutantes here (all four winners well found in the market). Beautiful Gesture another worth noting for the future.
