Won a Grade 2 bumper over 1m4f during his time in France but has so far been modest for current connections. Needs to improve greatly on two previous efforts on the Flat if he's going to figure.
Sales record is a worry - 220,000 gns as a foal, 725,000 gns as a yearling; then just 2,000 gns at the Newmarket October sales. Did win a bumper at Stratford in March but pulled up at Aintree since. Plenty to prove on his Flat race debut.
€60,000 yearling out of a French 1m4f winner who is a half-sister to the useful Prairie Star; tongue tied for this racecourse bow. Yard not quite firing on all cylinder but still worth noting in the betting.
Not seen since finishing eighth of eleven on debut at Kempton in November 2016; she's a half-sister to several decent handicappers and is out of prolific winner Bird Over. Still plenty to prove in returning after the long absence.
Overcame a slow start to win on debut at Southwell in March but couldn't back it up when tried over a mile at the same course a month later. Up another 2f here but not an obviously appealing move on pedigree.
€22,000 yearling that is a half-brother to Play The Game, a winner over 7f, and Dark Ocean, who was a useful handicapper who won over a mile; needs to improve upon his debut when well held over C&D last month.
Shown ability in both previous starts and got this trip well at Nottingham latest; the form has been franked twice since. Leading contender here.
35,000 gns yearling who was brushed aside on debut but did show improvement when upped to an extended mile at Nottingham last time. Plenty of winners in his pedigree and several were effective at this sort of trip. Worth a betting check.
Well beaten in both previous starts and didn't make much progress last time; plenty to prove on turf debut over a new trip.
Kingman colt who was well beaten in the Wood Ditton at Newmarket but winners have come out of the race and the form may be better than his finishing position has you believe. Open to improvement and worth a try over this trip.
A well-bred filly but she made little impression in either of her previous starts; will probably do better in handicaps further down the line.
Needs to considerably step up on what she's shown so far and is difficult to recommend as one to follow just now.
