850,000 gns son of Sea The Stars, half-brother multiple Group winners. Ran green but made a winning start at Chelmsford in December (1m2f. Again green in Group 3 at Sandown on reappearance (wore blinkers) but stayed on at the end. Promising.
By US sire Point of Entry, is a half-brother to a 1m turf winner. Maiden winner in Ireland last year before joining this yard, now 2-3 overall having reappeared with determined AW novice score at Chelmsford (1m2f; 8-1). More on his plate now.
Dark Angel gelding cost 68,000 gns as a yearling, related to top-class Flintshire. Keen on debut at Newbury but since showed pleasing attitude to turn over well thought of Space Blues (won since) in Nottingham novice (made running). Should improve.
Scored with a fair bit in hand on sole juvenile start at Salisbury (1m, good; 16-1) and ran well in soft-ground Newbury Conditions race on reappearance. Never a threat in Group 3 Chester Vase since, sights are lowered now.
Won three of his seven starts as a juvenile and not disgraced when third of six in a Sandown Group 3 on his return to action (ahead of Alfaatik). Didn't improve when third in Listed Newmarket race since, must do so here to hold claims.
Son of trainer's outstanding miler Kingman is half-brother to multiple winners including St Leger third Michelangelo. Back-to-back handicap wins at Redcar and Sandown in April, with any amount in hand last time. Royal Ascot-bound next.
Winner of one of his three starts on the AW, but was well held at Kempton in March in 1m Conditions event and that form seemingly leaves him with an uphill task on his hands here.
