Showed good improvement from debut run to win 5f Ripon novice contest when last seen. Beat a subsequent Royal Ascot winner that day and they pulled clear of the field. Looks to be above standard juvenile and the one to beat.
Reasonable debut at Hamilton in June before making all to win 5f Carlisle median auction race a week later. Beat a heavily odds-on favourite that day but needs to take his form to another level to be competitive with Spartan Fighter.
38,000 gns purchase as a two-year-old out of a precocious sire who was a dual Group Two winner. Yard are in flying form and typically excel with juveniles. Worth a market check on racecourse debut.
Well-bred No Nay Never colt who showed promise on debut when third at Doncaster (5f, good) in April. Likely to benefit from that run but form of the race has been mixed since and comes here off the back of a lay-off. Place claims at best.
Didn't show the required improvement from Thirsk debut when 6l sixth in 5f York novice contest last month. Form of that race has been franked and will improve in time but owner has better chance with Spartan Fighter. Best watched.
