€260,000 yearling. Half-brother to top class 7f to 1m7f winner Joshua Tree who won at 2. Dam won at 1m and 1m1f. Top stable also represented by Toronto.
Gelded since showing little in pair of 5f maidens back in April and a surprise if he is up to making an impression in this company.
Half brother to the brilliant miler Canford Cliffs. Not given hard time when 7L fifth of 11 on 7f debut last month and the type to make plenty of progress with that experience under his belt.
Second foal. Dam ran twice, placed over 1m4f. Stable 1-9 in juvenile department this season. Market should reveal more for top yard.
First foal of a dam who made the track just the once though was a half sister to smart 1m4f winner Centennial. Market should tell us more about expectations.
