Took a significant step up on his debut when making all to win by 6L over C&D (soft) last week. Strong claims under his penalty.
5,500gns foal, €5,500 yearling, £30,000 2yo. Third foal. Half-brother to 1m-1m2f winner Tomahawk Kid. Dam unplaced 6f-7½f, half-sister to very useful 5f-6f winner Confessional. Stable 2yos 4% this season. Watch on debut.
Has gone close on both starts, the more recent when odds-on favourite at Bath (5f, good to firm) last month. Steps up in trip and this should suit him. Should again be a contender.
Well beaten in his two starts so far. Gelded since the latest of them. Hood goes on, but can only watch at present.
Third foal. Half-brother to 6½f winner Case Stated. Unraced dam out of sister to smart French/US miler Bon Point. Stable 0-16 with turf juveniles this season.
40-1 on debut, when beaten over 9L into seventh at Doncaster (6½f, good to firm) in June. Much more needed.
Has shown promise in both runs, particularly the latter, when dropped back to 6f and staying on for fourth at Yarmouth last time (good to firm). Form of that raced bolstered since. Not ruled out.
100-1 and last of ten on debut at Haydock (6f, good to soft) last month. Watching brief advised.
Fourth in both starts so far (both 5f) at Carlisle and more recently at Ripon. Probably capable of winning races, but likely to have to wait for other days.
Has shown promise in both starts, but looking more of a handicap proposition, rather than possessing the ability to win a race in a field like this.
Made a good start at Newcastle (7f, AW) in June, and was not too far off that level of form last time at Haydock (7f, good to soft). Drops in trip and should be thereabouts if that helps.
800gns foal. Sixth foal. Half-sister to Italian 6f-1m winner Finisela Subit. Dam 1m2f winner, out of maiden daughter of 1,000 Guineas winner Las Meninas. Trainer not had a 2yo turf winner in five seasons.
Second foal. Dam unplaced over 1m in France. Yard rarely has debut juvenile winners, so probably best watched.
150-1 on debut at Doncaster, where she was always watching on from behind. Not difficult to look elsewhere.
