Unbeaten in two starts as a juvenile at this track and Redcar. Promising sort who will win more races, but this represents a considerable step up in class.
Exceed and Excel colt who was quite weak in the market on debut at Kempton, but scored in good fashion over 7f. Extra furlong of this race should suit and stable is in good heart as this one makes his reappearance as a three-year-old.
Improving with racing and likes the AW as he showed with victories at Kempton and over C&D. More to do in this company, but worthy of consideration.
Scored over 6f at this venue in November and made winning reappearance over 7f at Kempton last month. Represents leading connections and is likely to be hard to beat in hat-trick bid.
Winner at Ffos Las on debut and ran well to be second in a Listed race at Salisbury next time. Not disgraced in subsequent starts, but looks to have a bit to find as he has his first run as a three-year-old and makes AW debut.
Little show on debut at Wolverhampton in October, but was a different proposition when scoring at Redcar (1m1f) later that month. Nicely bred and has a future, but this distance may be sharp enough.
Convincing winner on debut at Kempton last month, but was beaten at long odds-on at Wolverhampton 13 days ago. Early days for him and he may be capable of bouncing back.
Fair form in six starts as a juvenile and has an AW success to his name. More exposed than most of his rivals so looks a little vulnerable on reappearance.
Well-bred son of Scat Daddy who cost $950,000 as a yearling and made a winning debut at Yarmouth in September. Hard to know how good he might be and missed a Group 3 assignment at Newbury last weekend because of good to soft ground.
Winner of three of his 11 starts as a juvenile, including in Group 3 company. Not disgraced on reappearance in France recently and should be sharper this time.
Stable companion of Dark Jedi who ran arguably his best race as a juvenile when fourth in the Acomb Stakes at York. Not without ability, but is exposed and others may have progressed past him.
