Shaped very well on C&D debut, and improved on that when neck second of 7 to King's Command over 6f at Newmarket. Return to this trip will suit, and sets a very solid standard.
Half-brother to owners' G1 Prix Jean Prat runner-up Cascadian. Sent off at 4/6, but looked in need of the experience when sixth of 9 to Thunderous in a 7f novice at Doncaster on debut, and given a chance to show benefit of that run.
85,000 gns breeze-up purchase who showed ability on debut over 6f here, making late progress. Sure to have learnt from that, and not without a chance with extra furlong expected to suit.
Well bred, and well backed (8/11) on Newcastle debut, when edged out by Oti Ma Boati. Form has been let down a little since, but he looks sure to progress, so merits consideration.
Has shown a modicum of promise in two starts to date, but not seen his race out either time, and makes minimal appeal in what looks a very warm contest.
No Nay Never half-brother to 2-y-o 1m1f winner Istanbul Sultan. Price rose to €350,000 last year, and represents a powerful yard, so needs a market check ahead of racecourse bow.
