- 6f, Good (Good to Firm in Places)
- 7 Runners
- Surface: Turf
£25,000 yearling; 10th foal; closely related to Norwegian 1m winner Golden Pool, half-brother to winners Chips O'Toole (5f-6f GB/Scandinavia inc at 2), Presumido (6f-1m AW) and Ettie Hart (7f inc AW). Trainer's newcomers often need a run.
Ravens Pass newcomer; 11th foal; brother to 7f winner Ibn Malik (inc at 2/Group 2), half-brother to 4 Flat winners inc Yazamaan (1m 2yo), Mutafakir (5f-6f) and Atab (1m 2yo). Well related and worth a market check.
200,000 gns son of Siyouni made a more than respectable start when second of seven at Ascot two weeks ago where he was only narrowly touched off in the end. Should progress further and sets a good standard for the newcomers.
(8,000gns vendor foal); second foal; half-brother to 6f 2yo winner Knockabout Queen; dam 1m winner (inc AW). Bred with speed in mind and yard well known for early, fast juveniles so no surprise if he goes well.
65,000gns yearling by Camacho; sixth foal; half-brother to 6f winners Angel's Hideaway (inc 2yo Group 3), Perfect Angel (Group-placed 2yo) and Where's Sue; dam 5f 2yo winner. Bred to be very precocious and merits respect here.
Dragon Pulse newcomer; €50,000 Y; third foal; half-brother to Italian 5f-6f winner Disappointing; dam Italian maiden, half-sister to 2m winner Quitit and Italian 1m2f/1m3f winner Trumspect. Market can guide as to expectations.
€105,000 Y; second foal; dam placed 1m2f, half-sister to 7f Group 2 2yo winner Cape Dollar from a great family. Interesting sort for yard known for two-year-old success so worth a check in the betting.
