French-bred filly who fetched €14,000 this year; plenty to prove reverting to the Flat after achieving little in four-race bumper career to date.
Youmzain filly. Sister to 1m3f-1m4f winner Quiet Zain. Cost relatively small money as a two-year-old and watching brief is advised this afternoon on first outing.
Daughter of Intello; a fifth foal and a half-sister to two winners. Stamina in pedigree, needs to improve on recent Windsor bow (1m2f, good; 33-1) if hoping to be competitive in this field.
Dubawi filly is a sister to fair winner up to 1m4f Galactic Prince. Stable in form and well able to have one ready, notable newcomer.
Kendargent filly. Half-sister to several winners, including very smart middle-distance/stayer Pallasator. Yard continues to be in decent form.
Mastercraftsman filly and half-sister to a 1m2f winner in France. Showed promise in Nottingham maiden (1m½f, soft; 9-2) last summer and could be more in the offing upped in journey on this return to action.
Champs Elysees filly with plenty winners in her pedigree, drops in to a decent-looking contest on paper and may learn from this experience.
Champs Elysees filly retained for vendor after only fetching 2,000gns as a yearling. May improve on last month's Sandown debut (1m2f, good to firm; 66-1) when finished sixth of 11.
Cape Cross filly. Half-sister to 5f winner Tadeem. Market should reveal more; yard 3-8 with three-year-old's this year though so clearly worth paying some attention.
Daughter of New Approach who is a half-sister to a winner over 1m. Didn't get involved on debut in Haydock contest (1m, soft; 13-2) last month, but perhaps will appreciate better ground and having more time to organise herself now.
Australia filly, no match for easy winner Divine Image on debut at Chelmsford (1m, AW; 6-1) in December but well clear of the remainder. Winner has scored in Group 3/Listed company at Meydan since, with three more winners behind.
Camelot filly whose dam is an unraced half-sister to the very useful 1m4f performer Galactic Star. Well held on second start last month in Newbury maiden over this trip (soft; 16-1) sporting first-time hood (retained). More demanded now.
Teofilo filly. Half-sister to several winners, including very smart winner up to 1m5f Wadi Al Hattawi. Represents top trainer/jockey combination and entitled to respect on debut.
By Australia out of a German juvenile winner. Cost €150,000 as a yearling and bred to be precocious. Didn't show a lot on debut at Newbury (1m, good to soft; 8-1) in October. Off since and likely has more to offer before long.
