165,000 guineas Invincible Spirit gelding whose dam is half-sister to Group 1 winners Compton Eclipse and Summoner. Has run respectably on both starts to date and been hampered each time. Should be in the mix again with better luck-in-running.
€40,000 So You Think gelding making a belated racceourse debut and equipped with a hood. Yard among the winners but known for first-time out winners so will most likely improve for the experience.
Mayson filly who belied 100/1 odds on debut to finish a good third over 6f, then followed up with a win over 5f at Thirsk last time. Showed a good attitude to prevail on the nod and is very much respected.
Made winning debut at Newcastle last September in 6f novice event, then kept on under penalty to be second in similar event at Yarmouth soon after. Not seen since and may have had an issue but clearly possessed ability last term.
Quality Road colt cost €180,000 as two-year-old but not seen until fair debut over 7f when fourth at Lingfield in May. Faded late on so drop back in trip should work and will have learned plenty.
20,000 guineas Speightstown gelding whose dam won in the US at bettween 7-9f. Makes racecourse debut for yard not known for producing debut winners outside juvenile sphere so could prove better for the outing.
Solid start on soft ground at Windsor last motnh when sixth in 6f novice contest. Built on that when second over 5f last time when made favourite. Step back up in trip looks right move. Jockey 0-11 for the yard.
£10,000 Delegator filly with dam's side populated by middle-distance performers. May find this trip sharp enough on debut and probably will benefit from the experience unless market suggests otherwise.
Showcasing filly cost 70,000 guineas as a yearling but reared start and was always behind on Newbury debut. Too early to write off for top yard and any market interest would be a strong hint she could do better this time.
Won Leicester 6f seller on racecourse bow but unable to figure in better race at Lingfield last time over 7f and was well beaten. Drops back to this trip but has quite a bit to find to bustle up the principals.
140,000 guineas Kodiac foal sold unraced for 50,000 guineas as a two-year-old. Not disgraced on racecourse bow over 6f at Doncaster recently where pulled hard but only faded a furlong out. Will know more and is one of the livelier outsiders.
Home bred Avonbridge filly, full sister to winner at up to a mile. Yard in decent form but not known for getting them ready first time out so others make more appeal.
Mayson filly out of dam who placed at up to 1m4f. Has run well both starts so far. Third in 6f Ripon soft ground maiden on debut (second won since), then runner-up over 7f on quick ground at Catterick last time. Could be on the premises.
