Class 5 | 6f | Good to Soft | 15 Runners | Turf
Off time: 14:33 | Winning time: 1m 14.22s
26,000 guineas Lawman colt makes his debut for yard not known for winning juveniles as 1-51 record in recent years indicates. Others make more appeal on this occasion.
Price nearly doubled to £30,000 at Breeze Up Sales earlier this year. Camacho colt out of dam who stayed middle distances. Yard yet to have a juvenile winner this term.
£32,000 Gutaifan colt who has shown prmosie on both starts at Windsor to date and has experience advantage on a number of his rivals. Yard just 1-22 in recent weeks though.
Baltic King colt closely related to three individual six furlong winners. Makes racecourse bow for yard that does well with its sprinters so worth a market check at least.
26,000 euro Bated Breath colt who comes from family with plenty of speed on dam's side as well. Hails from a good yard in fair form at present and looks one of the likelier contenders on paper.
By promising first season sire Cable Bay, out of dam who won over 6f as a juvenile and is related to some smart sprint performers. Yard respectable 2-14 with 2yo's so far this term. Not disgraced on recent Goodwood debut and may do better.
From top yard but hasn't shown much at all in two starts so far at minimum trip. Extra furlong may help but needs to take a big step forward and is hard to enthuse over.
2000 guineas gelded son of Archipenko who had a nightmare start to his career being pulled up when tailed off at Yarmouth recently after moving poorly through the race. Very tough task.
Tagula colt cost only £4,5000 guineas as a yearling. Not much to write home about on debut when a distant last of 10 at Doncaster earlier this month. Probably needs more time.
Roderic O'Connor colt makes his racecourse bow and is related to a number of winners on dam's side who stayed at least 1m2f. Likely to find things happening plenty quick enough for him here.
Yard has good 16% strike rate with its juveniles but this Night Of Thunder filly needs to produce more here than in her two outings so far. Extra furlong should help the cause.
Handler enjoying a purple patch and has impressive 22% strike rate with his two-year-olds. Awkward at start both outings to date but has run well despite not looking straight-forward although beaten odds-on last time out.
Yard's juveniles often improve for their first run so could do better here than her 9th of 12 at Windsor recently on debut. Yard has overall 12% strike rate at this track.
Looks a sprinter on paper being by Dream Ahead out of a Kyllachy mare. Yard yet to have a juvenile winner this campaign so market may prove informative.
£4,000 Roderic O'Connor filly who excelled herself when 100/1 second on debut over C&D nearly two weeks ago. Every chance if able to reproduce that level and is very much respected.
