Oasis Dream half-brother to 6f winner Gloriux out of a half-sister to smart 6f winner Blessington. Cost 50,000 gns as a yearling, although that looks small change next to some of his rivals.
€460,000 son of Sea The Stars out of a winning half-sister to Australian Group 1 winner He's Your Man (raced as I'm Your Man in France/UK). Lacks big-race entries, but of interest based on pedigree/sales price.
Sea The Stars half-brother to useful 1m winner On The Line out of a half-sister to Group 3 Princess Margaret Stakes winner Mythical Girl. Yard's newcomers often need a run, but this one make plenty of appeal on pedigree, so not easily discounted.
Kyllachy half-brother to 1m3½f winner Voluminous out of a full-sister to 1000 Guineas runner-up Spacious and Canadian Grade 2 winner Dimension. Already gelded, which tempers confidence, but merits a market check for a yard which can ready one.
By Kodiac out of a maiden half-sister to 1¼m winner Antiquities and 7f-1½m Londinium, both useful, from the family of Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry. Cost 100,000 gns as a yearling, and one to note if the market speaks for him.
Son of Starspangledbanner whose sales price rose to 200,000 gns this year. Half-brother to useful winners Empire Line (6f/7f) and Commander Grigio (6f), so should win races, but yard's strike-rate with juveniles is poor in recent seasons.
Battle of Marathon half-brother to moderate maiden Ce De Nullis out of a 2-y-o 1m winner. Just a modest pedigree, but in excellent hands, and sales price went up markedly from yearling to two-year-old. Market useful.
Lope de Vega half-brother to several winners, from the family of Prix Vermeille/Prix Ganay winner Aquarelliste. Trainer rarely rushes his youngsters, but did win this race a few years ago, and this colt holds a Derby entry.
Sea The Stars colt out of a disappointing maiden from a prolific Aga Khan family. Sales price rose markedly to 1,000,000 gns last year, and fact he's entered in the Champagne Stakes next month suggests he's showing the right signs.
