Newcomer by Aussie sire Sidestep; first foal; dam French 5f turf/6.5f AW 2yo winner. Not a yard renowned for early two-year-olds.
260,000gns foal by Muhaarar; first foal; dam 5f winner (inc at 2/Listed), half-sister to 6f Group 2 winner Hello Youmzain and 7.5f-1m2f Group winner Royal Youmzain. Excellent pedigree from yard prolific with two-year-olds so big debut expected.
€55,000 2yo; fifth foal; half-brother to winners New Providence (5f-6f inc at 2/Group 3), Ekhtiyaar (6f inc 2yo) and Ahdaf (5.8f 2yo). Bred then to be precocious and from a yard well capable first time up with juveniles.
Good third on debut at Carlisle although no obvious progress next when fifth at Thirsk. Experience an edge but vulnerable to a smart newcomer.
130,000gns yearling by source of precocity No Nay Never; 2nd foal; dam placed French 1m1f claimer, half-sister to French Group-placed 5f 2yo winner Absolute Music. From a top yard with two-year-olds so very much one to be respected.
Improved in second start when second on heavy ground over this trip at Nottingham latest. That looks the best form on offer so has obvious claims although vulnerable to the newcomers.
£80,000 newcomer by Starspangledbanner; third foal; half-brother to winners Migration (1m) and That's My Girl (6f 2yo); dam unraced half-sister to 5f 2yo Listed winner Knavesmire. From a prolific yard well capable first time up so highly respected.
£50,000 Y; fourth foal; brother to 5f-5.5f 2yo winner Fly On The Night (inc Group 3); dam unplaced 5f-1m. Market can guide to this debutant's expectations.
