55,000 euros as a vearling; half-brother to 5 winners including Zylpha, Zimbali and Zenani; stable still looking for its first juvenile winner of the season. Best watched on debut.
Gelded brother to 2-y-o 6f winner Mahlah and half-brother to 6f winner Elliot The Dragon. Did not show much on his debut at Warwick earlier this month but can be expected to improve. Finished steadily that day and extra furlong here will help.
Pivotal colt who cost 70,000 euros as a yearling. Related to plenty of winners and stable does well with his runners at this track. One to keep a check on in the market.
Oasis Dream colt, cost 75,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-brother to 7f/1m winner Carouse. Unseated rider entering stalls and briefly got loose before running green on his debut at Goodwood. More needed but can be expected to improve.
Bought for 55,000gns as a yearling; first foal; dam 1m4f AW winner, half-sister to 1m Group 3 winner Zonderland. Stable in good form and has a decent record at this venue and currently has god strike rate with juveniles.
Purchased for 140,000gns as a yearling; first foal; related mainly to milers; stable has only had the one juvenile runner; hard to assess with market being the best indication of chances.
Dark Angel colt, cost €250,000 as a yearling. Dam a juvenile winner over 7f and half-sister to Group 3 winner. Yard can ready one for debut and worth noting in the market given his attractive pedigree.
Fifth foal; half-brother to a couple of winners, namely Fighting Irish (6f) and Well Done (5f AW); finished last on his debut at Sandown 12 days ago but not beaten too far; will have benefited from that outing and can improve.
15,000 euros Anjaal colt who is a half-brother to six individual winners. Showed inexperience and hampered slightly on debut here over six furlongs earlier this month. Will improve for that and looks the best of those with racecourse form.
