Full-brother to useful 5f winner Tahoo and half-brother to 3 winners, including 5f winners Sarista and Vodka Chaser. Bred to be precocious, and should give a good account if ready as expected.
Half-brother to winning sprinters Robin Park and Astley Hall. Matched debut form debut when 2¼L second of 6 to Iffraaz in a heavy-ground 5f novice at Carlisle last time, and should be thereabouts again.
£42,000 Zebedee gelding who looked to need the run all round when last of 7 on debut at Haydock a week ago. Likely to need more time before he can flourish, however.
Showed bright speed before fading in Carlisle race won by Iffraaz at Carlisle, and has 3L to find with runner-up Hurstwood. Not improbable that he will find the requisite progress with benefit of that run.
Better effort to date when 3L second of 3 to Bill Neigh in a soft-ground novice over 5f at Musselburgh. This €135,000 foal purchase ought to keep improving, so not ruled out.
Left behind when the race began in earnest when fourth of 10 to Rodnee Tee in a 5f novice at Beverley in April. Will improve in time, but this looks too tough.
Has no shortage of speedy winners in his pedigree, and showed plenty to work on when 1¼L second of 8 to Mrs Bouquet in 5f novice at Newcastle ten days ago, running on. Looks sure to improve if handling turf.
From family of Spanish speedball Noozhoh Canarias, and shaped well when fifth of 14 to Althiqa in a 5f maiden at Thirsk last month. Will improve, and one to consider.
