200,000 gns half-brother to very smart 5½f-7f winner My Catch and useful 2-y-o 6f/7f winner Vladimir. Yard tends to unleash its better juveniles here, and one for the shortlist.
Not disgraced on debut at Thirsk in April, but failed to build on that at Beverley next time, and looks one for nurseries after another outing.
Night of Thunder colt out of a useful 2-y-o 6½f/7f winner. Cost 80,000 gns, and makes some appeal, for all yard's newcomers usually need experience.
Shamardal colt who is a half-brother to a couple of winners in France. Needed the experience, but shaped well when fourth of 8 to Maxi Boy at Yarmouth on debut, and looks sure to improve.
First foal of a 1½m winner, and while yard can get winners on debut, this son of Havana Gold is likely to need a stiffer test than this.
Kyllachy half-brother to smart 7f-1m winner Lincoln Rocks. Shaped quite well when fifth of 8 to War Storm over C&D on debut, and looks sure to progress, for all improvement is required.
Coach House half-brother to 6f winner Koharu, and pedigree suggests he will handle ease, but already gelded, and cost just 6,000 gns, so not as appealing on paper as some.
Beaten 7L when runner-up on debut at Ripon, and ran better when 1½L third of 10 to Toro Strike at Thirsk last time. Every chance in form terms, and should improve further as he gains experience.
Gelded son of Harbour Watch who needed early reminders and looked a bit wayward when sixth of 10 on debut at Thirsk. Behind Oso Rapido there, and has work to do to reverse form.
Full-brother to useful 5f-7½f winner Sandbetweenourtoes and half-brother to 7f winner Doricemay. Yard 0-61 with 2-y-o newcomers in recent years, however.
Cable Bay colt who cost 90,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-brother to three winners in France. A place and 1½L behind Historic on debut at Yarmouth, but shaped well, is sure to improve and needs respect.
Has more experience than any of these, and produced his best effort when 4L second of 15 to Coase in novice at Carlisle last time. Place claims on that, but vulnerable to improvers.
Exceed And Excel half-sister to 1¼m winner Ecureuil and closely related to useful 7f/7½f winner Starlight Romance. Yard a modest 4-51 with newcomers here in recent years, but merits a market check.
