Left Ger Lyons for 22,000gns in October 2018; ran reasonably on her stable debut over an extended mile here (good to firm) last month.
Joined Gay Kelleway (from Hugo Palmer) for 16,000gns in February - not too long after making all in a Class 5 1m+ Wolverhampton handicap; 3lb higher.
Has done all of his racing to date on a soft surface; best juvenile effort came when finishing 1½L third at Ayr (7f, heavy) in September 2018; handicap debut.
Cost 40,000gns as a yearling; showed minor promise as a juvenile (placed at Wolverhampton), but nothing more forthcoming this year since switched to handicapping; cheekpieces now added.
Nine-race maiden; needs a strong early pace to be seen at his most potent; finishing off well when beaten 2½L (third) by Conundrum at Pontefract (1m, good to firm) last month.
Daughter of Sir Percy (£9,500 yearling); twice placed as a juvenile, including at this track (7½f); well beaten 11th of 13 on handicap debut at Thirsk (28/1).
First signs of any ability came when finishing second to Joe The Beau at odds of 66/1 at Thirsk (1m, good) 15-days ago; 3lb higher for today's step up in trip.
Stayed on strongly to win by 2½L in a 1m Ayr nursery under similar conditions (good to soft) in October 2018; 4lb higher; caught the eye when finishing fourth on seasonal reappearance at Wolverhampton (1m1½f); stablemate of Archies Lad.
Caught close home in a Lingfield seller (1m) in November 2018; also has previous placed form at this track; recent Southwell effort (1m4f) easily excused; second string to stablemate Firewater.
€22,000 yearling; 0-4 as a juvenile, albeit well out of his depth at odds of 33/1 on handicap debut at Ayr (Class 2 nursery); market can potentially guide, although others are preferred at this stage.
Well beaten on both previous starts on turf (1m) and the worth of his 7f Newcastle AW fourth to Island Glen is surely open to debate.
