Newcomer from the first crop of promising Gleneagles cost 37,000gns as a yearling and is a half-sister to nine winners inc Above Average (1m-1m2f inc Group 3) & Sent From Heaven (7f 2yo inc Group 3). Highly respected newcomer.
Shaped with promise at a big price on her second start in a maiden and ran to a similar level when runner-up at Newmarket next before fifth of 15 in what looked a warm Glorious Goodwood maiden. Genuine chance now.
€32,000 yearling half-sister to 5f-6f winner Arcavallo who won at two by source of precocity Camacho so bred to be a forward type but yard's two-year-olds generally best watched first time out.
Kyllachy filly showed plenty of promise when keeping on after a slow start to finish a never nearer third of six at Brighton when greenness also hampered her. Sure to come on plenty so not ruled out even in this deeper contest.
Dandy Man filly made a promising start at Newbury beaten just ¾L into third of 13. Looked in need of this step up to 7f latest when a one-paced sixth at the same venue so not ruled out here.
Newcomer by US sire Creative Cause cost $22,000 as a yearling. Once raced dam also US based so family little known on these shores but yard 2-10 with juveniles this season and in good form so market can guide.
Looked a nursery candidate in respectable but ultimately well beaten thirds of nine and 12 respectively at Newbury and Ascot latest over this trip. Will again be in the hunt for a place here with success dependent on less exposed sorts.
Daughter of Cityscape was a never dangerous 4L fifth of six on debut at Doncaster (7f) in June. Had a break since but runners from that contest 1-7 since so form only moderate.
Never a factor in three starts to date, including when 7L eighth in weak 7f Lingfield maiden won by Miss Matterhorn on latest start. This looks a tough ask.
Newcomer by Requinto retained by her vendor for just 1,000gns as a yearling. Is the first foal from an unraced half-sister to 7 winners but overall looks best watched.
4,000gns yearling by Make Believe is a half-sister to ordinary 1m winner Pushmi Pullyu. Yard 1-24 with two-year-olds in 2019 so plenty of cause for caution here.
Newcomer by top middle-distance sire Nathaniel cost 5,000gns as a yearling. Half-sister to 4 winners from 7f-1m4f and suggest she will come into her own next year. Stable also run leading player Incognito so market a guide.
Newcomer by Hunter's Light went unsold at auction. Half-sister to three winners from 1m1f-1m6f and looks the sort to watch with a view to stepping up in trip.
