Iffraaj colt, cost 32,000 gns as a foal and £105,000 as a yearling. Dam a half-sister to 14 winners including a Grade 2 winner. Trainer and jockey teamed up with a newcomer here yesterday and this runner makes some appeal on paper; interesting.
Make Believe colt, cost 27,000 gns as a foal. Dam a winner over further and both sister to a juvenile winner over this trip and half-sister to a Group performer. Yard's runner can need the experience and others preferred here.
Acclamation colt, cost 130,000 gns as a foal and 70,000 gns as a yearling. Brother to a juvenile winner over this trip who went on to Group 3 success (7f). Yard capable of readying a debutante and one to watch in the market here.
Helmet colt, cost 40,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to five winners including a juvenile winner (6f) and some more sprinters. Dam a half-sister to a Listed winner over this trip. Yard's debutantes can need the run but makes appeal on paper
Mustajeeb colt, dam a 7f winner as a juvenile and half-sister to three winners. Showed very little on debut and hard to fancy on that evidence.
Exceed And Excel colt, cost €135,000 as a foal and €95,000 as a yearling. Dam a sister to a Listed winner and Irish Guineas runner-up. Yard capable of readying them for debut and worth noting in the market here.
Invincible Spirit colt, cost 310,000 gns as a yearling. Brother to a 7f juvenile winner and half-brother to another juvenile winner. Dam a half-sister to top-miler Kingman. Fascinating debutante here.
Kodiac colt, cost £21,000 as a yearling. Brother to a winner over this trip. Dam won over 1m in Italy. Shaped nicely on debut at Pontefract and may appreciate the step up in trip here. Each-way claims with experience under his belt.
Dark Angel colt, dam a juvenile winner and half-sister to a pair of Group 2 winners and a St Leger runner-up. Yard do particularly well with their juveniles and he's worth considering here, though may do better over a little further.
Fountain Of Youth gelding, cost £15,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to two winning sprinters. Dam a half-sister to a Group 2 winner over this trip. Bred for this but showed nothing on debut at Pontefract last month and hard to fancy here.
Lawman colt, cost €50,000 as a yearling. Dam a half-sister to a Group 1 winning miler. Only narrowly denied on debut but step up in trip will help here; may do a little better when tried with some cut in the ground.
Helmet filly, cost £8,000 as a yearling. Dam a half-sister to three winners. Tailed off on debut and may do better over further.
