First Carlton Novice Auction Stakes (Plus 10) (Div 2)
Class 4 | 6f | Soft (Heavy in places) | 9 Runners | Turf
Off time: 14:16 | Winning time: 1m 19.58s
£30,000 yearling who should be sharper after making a satisfactory debut at Newmarket last month; he's a half-brother to six winners so likely there's more to come. One to consider.
£30,000 yearling out of a Dalakhani mare who didn't manage a win in a short career. Sure to benefit from the run but looks more of a long term prospect.
Third in an average renewal of the Lilly Agnes at Chester and was again put in her place at Haydock last month. Has ability but does need a step forward now.
Showed immaturity here on debut and was never a factor. Big improvement required.
10,000 gns yearling, a half-brother to two sprint winners; yard not particularly noted for nurturing precocious types so reasonable to suggest he'll need more time.
A €19,000 yearling, the filly is related decent sprinter Dark Shadow; her dam was also successful over 6f as a juvenile. Debut run left a lot to be desired though. Hard to recommend on that evidence.
Cost just 3,000 gns and has already been well beaten twice; qualifies for a mark after this and will probably find her level in low key handicaps if she doesn't improve quickly.
A half-sister to a mile winner on the AW; had very little impact on proceedings on debut and not hard to overlook on this occasion.
Dam was a useful sprinter and there's a strong influence for speed on that side of the pedigree. Yard has been slow with its juveniles this season but very capable of having one ready. Worth considering.
Top Buck (11/8), Grove Ferry (9/5), Summer Lake (8/1), Sword Beach (10/1), Al Verde (14/1), Whispering Leaves (20/1), Es Que Pearl (25/1), Shaun's Delight (50/1), Kahpehlo (100/1)
