Price dropped from 38,000 gns as a foal to 7,000 gns as a yearling, but this stable's runners always merit serious consideration at this course, so a betting check on this half-brother to a winning miler is still advised.
Ran well to finish second to an odds-on favourite on debut at Newbury at the start of this month and is sure to have learned a good deal from the experience. However, the form isn't working out, so a prudent stance might be the best policy.
A brother to a 7f winner who is out of a Poetic Dancer, who won over 6f on her second start for this same in-form yard. Makes plenty of appeal on paper and is the most interesting contender from the three newcomers.
Well held in both starts so far and plenty to prove just now. Qualifies for a mark after this and may also do better when upped in trip if he goes on to ply his trade in handicaps.
Cost £11,000 as a two-year-old, his dam won three times over 7f for Ralph Beckett before being sold to race in the USA; the dam is also a half-sister to Moonlit Shadow, who won a Listed race as a juvenile. Interesting if supported in the betting.
Debut run has already produced two subsequent winners and makes for good reading. Gets weight as the only filly in the line up and has potential to improve. Dangerous to underestimate.
