16:20 Wolverhampton Fri 2 August 2019
Only previous winner in the field. Had the look of a strong-stayer when off the mark at the second attempt when mowing his opposition down late on at Lingfield (1m4f; standard) recently. Has plenty more to offer but does have to concede penalty.
Produced a slightly below-par effort to finish only fourth last time when fancied at Goodwood (1m6f; good) after highly encouraging debut. Shouldn't be dismissed though, and unlikely to remain a maiden for much longer.
Pivotal colt. Made 75,000gns as a foal. Dam a half-sister to a French Oaks winner. Should play a prominent role on debut for yard among the winners at the present.
Showed plenty of promise on debut behind two rivals who had the benefit of experience when third at Windsor (1m2f; good to firm). Should appreciate the step up in trip, and likely to be a lot more street-wise now.
Makes belated reappearance after showing minor promise when sixth on debut at Nottingham (1m; soft) in October 2018. Now steps up significantly in trip, but looks more of a handicap project.
