25,000 euros yearling who is the only four-year-old in this contest. Has to give plenty of weight away to all of his rivals and he is readily opposed on debut.
Four-race maiden who went well on sole AW start. Made handicap debut in a competitive heat at Newmarket (1m; good to firm) recently. Not open to as much progress as some of these returned to this company.
One of two representatives for trainer. Newcomer who is by Galileo and although the yard don't have many winners first time out, he could be good enough to buck the trend. Betting informative for his chances.
Very well-bred sort who cost 1,000,000gns as a yearling. Made a pleasing start to life when third on debut at Newmarket (1m2f; good to firm). Yard like to educate their newcomers, so he should be a different proposition now on his second start.
Slightly disappointing that he couldn't justify favouritism (15/8F) on seasonal return when runner-up at Windsor (1m; good). Now has a handicap mark, so interesting connections are persevering in maidens with him.
Probably ran to a similar level than he did on debut when fifth last time at Doncaster (1m2f; good) in what was a warm maiden. Related to some smart sorts and despite the 70-day absence causing somewhat of a concern, he should have more to offer.
By Medaglia d'Oro. Debutante who is related to four winners. Trainer has not had a single winner from 28 runners this year. Best watched until entering handicaps.
By Intello. Has been gelded ahead of making debut. Has a strong-staying pedigree and dual-purpose yard do well on the flat, but not readily associated with winning newcomers. Probably wants further than 1m2f.
Lemon Drop Kid colt who made 80,000gns as a yearling. Dam won on the AW. Should have a future for connections who have done so well with such types in the past. Market probably the best guide to his chances.
Has been unable to land a blow on both starts to date and is able to qualify for handicaps after taking in this assignment. Should have more enjoyment in that code. Best watched for the time being.
Hard to assess the strength of her recent effort at Saint-Cloud when he finished sixth. Previous effort before that when making debut at Newcastle was modest and others are far more appealing.
Kingman filly who represents leading connections. Related to plenty of winners. Yard currently enjoying 29% strike-rate with two-year-olds this year and she is an interesting newcomer. Watch betting.
Couldn't really say she improved from her debut, as she was beaten a long way despite finishing fourth at Newmarket (1m4f; good) last time in a modest Novice at Newmarket. Should appreciate drop down to 1m2f, but lots to prove.
