14:00 Beverley Wed 14 August 2019
22,000gns foal, €12,000 juvenile; seventh foal; half-brother to three winners, including Avon Pearl (5f-1m+); wears a tongue-tie on debut.
Bought for a mere £600 but has already proved to be a bargain buy in making the frame at Chelmsford and Nottingham (both 6f); today's drop back in trip isn't necessarily a positive move.
Big odds and well beaten on both starts, most significantly over C&D (good to firm) on debut; wide draw; one of three declared runners for Tim Easterby.
13,000gns yearling; 25-1 when finishing sixth of ten to Harry Love in a C&D (good) novice last month; ran green before keeping on inside the final furlong and should fare better with that experience banked; trainer saddles three runners.
6,500gns yearling; first foal from a 7f dam who was a half-sister to the Canadian 1m Grade 1 winner Trade Storm and the 5f-6f winner Wanchai Lad.
€1,000 foal, £16,000 yearling; took a significant step forward on her second start (66-1) when finishing 4L third to Harry Love over C&D (good) last month; one of four declared runners for Nigel Tinkler.
£1,000 yearling; 11-1 when last of six to stablemate Singe Anglais (a winner since) over C&D (good to firm) in July; trainer saddles four runners; unlikely.
12,000gns yearling, 15,000gns juvenile; fourth foal from a 5f-6f winning dam (Impressible); closely related to winners Dark Reckoning (5f-6f) and Alshaqee (5f AW); one to note in the market.
12,000gns yearling; slowly away and in the rear throughout when finishing well down the field (11th of 12) on debut at Thirsk (6f, good to firm) six weeks ago; needs to do better for a trainer who saddles three other runners.
€4,000 yearling; made only a nominal amount of progress from debut when seventh of ten to Seize The Time over C&D (good to firm) three weeks ago; others rate as more appealing.
Kendargent filly; pacy and has shown a reasonable level of form in all three starts; went close to breaking the duck when beaten a head in a 6f Carlisle maiden (good to soft) latest; dropped in trip and prominent on the shortlist.
Six-race maiden; has raced over 7f recently and now drops back to the minimum trip after finishing fifth of 15 (beaten just under 2L) by Singe Anglais at Ripon (6f, good to soft) eight days ago; likely to be handy early from the inside berth.
Kyllachy filly who is a half-sister to a couple of winners; 33-1 when a close up debut fourth to Seize The Time over C&D (good to firm) three weeks ago; wide berth, but further improvement is possible.
7,000gns yearling; dwelt and went badly left from the stalls when last of ten on debut over C&D (good) a fortnight ago; work to do with a number of these rivals; one of four declared runners for Nigel Tinkler.
