Debut winner over 7f at Newcastle in December and ran well when finishing fourth over 7f at Newmarket (good-to-firm) on seasonal debut last month. One to note stepping up in distance.
Built on a promising 5L third at Lingfield (1m) on debut when winning by a head over an extended 1m at Wolverhampton last month. Of interest once more.
Off the mark at the first attempt when victorious by a short-head in a soft ground 1m novice contest at Haydock last month. Represents top connections and is well drawn on this occasion.
Unraced gelded son of Dutch Art sold for 55,000 gns at the sales as a yearling. Dam won three times and interesting to see how he fares on debut.
Unraced son of Dubawi out of a mare who was placed in Group company. Represents leading connections and is of interest on first racecourse appearance.
Unraced gelding by War Command purchased for £75,000 as a yearling. Dam was placed in Group company and market support would be notable on debut.
Unraced Shmardal colt fetched 145,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to a number of useful individuals including DIstant Memories. Worth a check in the market on debut.
Good effort in finishing 3L fourth in a novice event over an extended 1m on debut at Wolverhampton in November. Had wind surgery since and is interesting on seasonal debut.
Had wind surgery since finishing a well beaten fourth of five in a 1m novice race at Newcastle on debut in November. Probably best watched at present.
Beaten 15L when finishing third of 12 in a 1m novice contest at Southwell at the end of last month. Previously 7L fifth over an extended 1m at Nottingham (good-to-firm) on debut.
Wore a visor (absent here) when finishing fourth of five in a 1m2f novice event on debut at the start of this month. Wide draw to overcome dropping back in distance.
Well held seventh in a 12 runner novice event over this trip at Kempton when making his debut in March. Given a break since and tongue tie tried for the first time.
Well held eighth when making his debut in a 1m novice race at Southwell last month. Probably best watched on this occasion.
Unraced daughter of Sir Percy bought for 7,000 gns as a yearling in October 2017. Dam unraced and others make more appeal on debut.
Slowly away and outpaced when finishing last of 12 in a 7f novice event on debut at Wolverhampton in February. Others hold stronger claims.
Unraced Super Saver filly out of a mare who won over sprint distances in the USA. Worth a check in the market on debut.
