Society Rock gelding; half-brother to the 5f winners Almane and Frank The Barber; showed pace on debut at Thirsk (5f, good to firm) 16-days ago but was ultimately a well beaten ninth of ten to Xcelente.
40,000gns yearling; ninth foal; brother to the 5f-6f winner Dutch Masterpiece; rates as a likely type for the Fahey/Hanagan partnership.
€6,000 yearling from a relatively modest dam (Reina De Luz); doing his best work late in the contest on debut at Beverley (5f, good to firm) 12-days ago; should be sharper with that experience banked.
$80,000 yearling; first foal from a US winning dam (5f-1m); clearly ready to race with a plethora of other entries this week (Yarmouth, Ascot and Chelmsford); any signs of market confidence could be worth heeding.
34,000gns yearling; fourth foal; half-sister to the Listed-placed 5f juvenile winner Looks A Million; dam a tough 5f-6f winner; trainer had a number of horses galloping at this track prior to racing a couple of weeks ago.
