Maxios half-sister to Group 2 1¼m winner Smoking Sun and Listed 1m winner Zhiyi. Caught the eye when a strong-travelling 1½L third of 12 to California Love at Chelmsford (7f) on November debut, and open to plenty of improvement this year.
Half-sister to numerous winners, but has failed to beat a rival on either start to date, and looks very limited on early evidence.
Stablemate of Burning Topic. Closely related to 2-y-o 1m winner Shalimah and 1m1f-1m4½f winner Maulesden May, but showed little aside from greenness on debut at Kempton in November, and will be of interest only when qualified for handicaps.
Dam was a four-time winner at around this trip for same connections, and this daughter of Mukhadram showed plenty amidst greenness when runner-up on racecourse bow at Beverley three weeks ago. Sure to progress, and has leading claims.
Out of a 6f winner, but has shown just minor promise in two starts to date, the latest after a 7-month absence at Lingfield. Needs this run to qualify for handicaps, and best watched as a result.
Dam was a multiple winner at a modest level for this yard, but this daughter of Phoenix Reach needed wind surgery prior to this racecourse bow, and she makes little short-term appeal.
Appeared to show marked improvement when sixth of 15 to Manana Chica in a 7f maiden at Newmarket in May, but efforts since suggest she's flattered by that. Still has place claims in a race lacking depth, though.
