By Galileo (out of Famous), cost 155,000 gns as a yearling. Took second spot in sole juvenile run at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm; 10/3). Back from layoff with yard in good form, needs close monitoring.
$200,000 yearling by Noble Mission is half-brother to multiple winners. Off the mark second time out at Lingfield (1m, AW; 5-6f) in straightforward fashion. Should be more to come and has handled turf already. Yard flying and holds Derby entry.
By Sea The Moon closely related to 1m2f-1m3f Listed winner All At Sea, half-brother to multiple winners out of Group 1-winning dam. Unfancied on debut for top connections last backend and ran down field at Newmarket (1m, good; 16-1).
Decent pedigree, and related to the yard's useful Good Choice. Well fended off in 1m2f good-ground Windsor maiden last month on second start having been sent off 50-1. Perhaps will require a bit more time.
Champs Elysees gelding. Brother to 1m winner Starflower and closely related to three winners. Makes some appeal on paper and has in-form Jason Watson for company; shortlisted.
Finished modest fourth of six in Ripon novice over this sort of trip in reappearance last month (won by well-fancied stablemate Eightsome Reel). Needs to improve generously to build on that placing.
Shamardal colt who fetched €325,000 as a yearling and is a brother to Group Two winner Bow Creek. Beaten nearly 8L into third on second start at Kempton (1m2f, AW; 5-2) in March (winner useful). Should be fitter now and could be more to come.
Iffraaj colt, unraced as juvenile; improved on second start when runner-up in Ripon novice event over similar trip won by promising Eightsome Reel (holds Platform Nineteen on that form) and should be ready to build on that.
