Teofilo gelding, half-brother to two winning milers. Dam a 7f winner as a juvenile and finished fourth in Irish 1,000 Guineas. Interesting debutante and market can guide for a yard in form.
Brother to an Irish 2,000 Guineas winner and has shown some ability in two AW starts. Likely to kick on this campaign and he's the pick of Crowley over the owner's other runner.
Took a big step forward from debut to second run when a respectable fourth of 17 in a Doncaster maiden. Should continue to improve here.
New Approach colt, half-brother to a Listed winner and dam a Listed winner and half-sister to a 1m Group 1 winner. Yard have sent some smart ones here for debut and this colt looks like a fascinating newcomer on paper.
Gelded prior to showing nothing on debut at Windsor last week. Hard to fancy on that evidence and will have needed to learn plenty in a very short space of time to get competitive here.
Olympic Glory colt, cost 65,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to two winners and dam a juvenile winner over shorter trips. Outpaced on debut as a juvenile but like to do better this year and should appreciate this step up in trip.
Dubawi gelding, dam a half-sister to a Group placed juvenile winner and a 1m1f winner. Well bred sort who should appreciate this test but Crowley prefers Alhaazm. Yard in form.
Frankel colt who has run to a similar level on both his starts to date. Draw not ideal here though and needs improved now stepped up in trip.
