Eighth foal; half-brother to the 1m-1m2f winner Muharrer; dam was an unraced half-sister to the 1,000 Guineas winner Ghanaati; taken out of planned juvenile debut at Sandown on 19/09/2018; stablemate of Harrovian.
Dubawi colt; finished a neck second to Landa Beach on debut at Newbury (1m, good to soft) in October; played up pre-race on seasonal reappearance when flopping at odds of 4/7f at Haydock (1m4f); drops in trip on a faster racing surface.
Haafhd gelding; well beaten at big odds on both starts to date (7f-1m); today's longer trip is almost certainly in his favour, albeit comfortably out of his depth against these opponents.
150,000gns juvenile; is clearly a work in progress and is getting more proficient with greater racing experience; must significantly better his Yarmouth (1m) ninth of 14 to the Gosden-trained King Of Comedy; stablemate of Youarestar.
Sea The Stars colt; 190,000gns foal who fetched a whopping 1,000,000gns as a yearling; first foal from a German 1m2½f winning dam; monitor the market vibes for clues.
125,000gns yearling; fifth foal who is closely related to the useful stayer Altra Vita; half-brother to a pair of Flat winners which include Alumna (1m-1m1f); stablemate of fellow newcomer Albadr.
Fourth foal from a 1m2f winner (Satwa Pearl); half-brother to two winners, Atticus Boy (1m3f-1m4f) and the dual purpose scorer Take A Turn (1m2f Flat-2m4f hurdle).
Dansili gelding from a Group 3 winning dam (Illustrious Miss); ninth foal; half-brother to four winners including the UAE 1,000 Guineas scorer Gamilati; sold unraced by Godolphin for 8,500gns.
Sea The Stars colt who cost 145,000gns as a yearling; never involved ninth of 14 (50/1) on debut at Newbury (1m) in October; has left Ed Dunlop since to join William Haggas who also saddles Crystal Tribe.
15th foal; half-sister to seven winners including the St Leger second High Accolade and the hardy Oasis Knight (1m1f-1m5f); not for today against these opponents, but one to keep a close eye on for the future.
