Sister to the 5f-6f winner Holmeswood; has her issues with the stalls (twice withdrawn) but also ability; kept on strongly when winning by 1¾L at Newcastle (6f) last November; off since; set to make her turf debut with a penalty.
Cost £190,000 as a juvenile; made his debut at this track (fifth) four weeks prior to winning in the style of a promising horse on the AW at Kempton (7f); that form has been boosted since by the placed horses; very much respected.
Five-race maiden who will surely break his duck sooner or later; runner-up on both starts this season (gelded over the winter), including when beaten a neck by Ejtilaab over C&D 12 days ago; solid chance.
€29,000 yearling; has shown only limited promise in two starts to date (5f-6f) and is projected to struggle against these rivals; handicapping surely awaits.
Second foal from a moderate dam who was a half-sister to the 6f Group 3 winner Jack Dexter; brother to the 5f AW winner Lord Of The Glen; should be winning his fair share of races further down the line.
Iffraaj colt from the 5f-6f Listed winner Fig Roll; cost £190,000 as a yearling; beaten 4½L by a ready winner on Windsor debut (6f, good to firm) 11 days ago, but there were plenty of positives to take from that performance.
€420,000 yearling; kept on promisingly for hands and heels riding on debut at Newbury (7f) in May but couldn't build positively on that effort when a beaten 6-4f at Newmarket (1m) 19 days ago; dropped in trip is probably capable of better.
Inexpensive yearling (€1,000); sold for 25-times that amount as a juvenile; eighth foal; sister to the 5f AW winner Spirit Power and a half-sister to two other winners; kick-offs her racing career in a very competitive race.
Captain Gerrard filly; sister to the 5f-6f AW winner Gorgeous General; showed pace over C&D latest before weakening; has work to do with Crantock Bay; others rate as far more likely contenders.
