No Nay Never half-brother to 6f-1m winner Bandolaout of a 1½m-1¾m winner. Yard 0-56 with 2-y-o newcomers in recent seasons, although this colt has been given an auspicious name, and could be one for the future.
Improved from a moderate debut, and better than the bare result when 2¼L seventh of 11 to Fred in a 7f at Haydock last time. Should progress again, and a stiffer test at this trip should suit on breeding. Considered.
Hasn't beaten a rival in two starts to date, and doubtful whether the fitting of blinkers is enough to transform his fortunes.
First foal, by Mukhadram, out of a half-sister to 2018 2-y-o 7f Group 3 winner East. Holds a Derby entry, and in excellent hands, so needs a market check.
Half-brother to a couple of useful juveniles at up to 6½f, and wasn't given a hard time when fifth of 8 to Mystery Power in a 7f maiden at Haydock on debut. May need more time, but sure to do better at some point.
Helmet colt out of a 2-y-o 6f winner. Seemed to know his job well enough on debut at Newcastle in June, but weakened tamely to finish last, so hard to get excited about her prospects here.
Better effort for Karl Burke when 2¾L third of 18 to Amnaa in seller at York last time, and claimed by current owner for £18,000 and gelded. This is tougher, but he will stay, and isn't a forlorn hope up in class.
Archipenko half-brother to 1m-1m3f winner Rabbit Percy from the family of dual Champion Stakes winner Alborada. Yard's only winning 2-y-o newcomer this season came here, so worth a market check.
Mukhadram half-brother to 1½m winner Al and 1m½f winner William Sayle out of a half-sister to top-class but ungenuine performer Norse Dancer. Yard 1-42 with 2-y-o newcomers in last five years, and likely to do better in time.
Related to winners but has finished well held in a couple of starts to date. Yard's juveniles often slow to learn, and he will make more appeal when qualified for handicaps.
First foal, by Kyllachy, of a 6f winner who is a daughter of Group 2 5f/6f winner Danehurst. Yard's newcomers invariably in need of debut experience, and this gelding looks one for the longer term on paper.
By Nathaniel out of a 7f winner, and bred to excel next year. Backward when behind Thunder King on debut at Haydock, and will need more time on that evidence.
Lope de Vega colt out of a winning daughter of one-time Oaks favourite Kitty O'Shea, from excellent family which includes St Leger winner Brian Boru. Cheap purchase given his pedigree, and holds no big-race entries.
