- Toalsbet EBF Novice Stakes (Class 5)
- 4f 214y,
- 6 Runners
- Surface: Fibresand
Half-brother to several winners (cost £6,500 as a yearling) most of their victories coming over sprint trips. First two-year-old runner for the yard this year who are 1-26 with juvenile debutantes; never run one on debut on Fibresand.
Newcomer £52,000 yearling; half-brother to a juvenile 5f winner Magic Applause, dam a maiden (best effort over 7f). Yard 0-11 with juveniles this year (only 6% strike-rate with debutants overall); might find one too good.
One of the two in this with experience although he looked to need the outing on his debut over 5f at Musselburgh (ran green). Offered something to work on (yard rarely have debut juvenile winners); progress likely if he handles Fibresand.
The other one in the field who has had an outing (was very green but hinted at ability0 when ultimately well held over 5f on the AW at Kempton. Should progress although may need another run or two yet; first experience of Fibresand.
Trainer has had made a terrific start with his juveniles (6-10; 4-7 with debutantes). Cost €15,000 as a yearling out of a dam who was a two-year-old 6f winner, sire was a high-class sprinter in US and Europe; leading chance on debut.
Second two-year-old runner of the season for a yard who are 0-63 with their debutants in this division. Cost €6,000 as a yearling; dam maiden half-sister to smart winner up to 1m Party Boss; hard to imagine her winning this on debut.
