Dubawi filly, made very short work of her rivals on debut at Newcastle (1m, AW; 4-7f) in March and with improvement to come will take the beating here for leading yard.
160,000 gns yearling by Kingman, he finished third of nine on debut at Lingfield (7f, AW; 4-1) 2 4 days ago. Open to improvement and should lay down a challenge here.
Inexpensive Compton Place gelding, well held on debut over 7f on AW at Kempton in December but narrowly denied at Bath (5½f, good to soft; 12-1) last month on return. Back up in trip after that positive effort (did best work late on).
Half-brother to smart 5f winner Demora and very smart winner up to 6f Danzeno. Trainer quiet lately and doesn't boast strong record with this age group.
Showed some promise in Ireland for John Oxx and boasts more experience than a few of these. Sports a hood on debut for new handler and cannot be ruled out with any certainty.
Lope De Vega colt. Half-brother to three winners. Represents good yard and leading operation. No surprise to see a strong first run.
Daughter of Bated Breath, makes some appeal on paper but finished last of 11 in minor event at Wolverhampton (7f, AW; 66-1) on debut in December and off since. Best watched for the moment.
Half-sister to German/Belgian/French 5½f-1m winner Darrell Rivers. Ran into a good one on debut at Nottingham (finished fifth), though well held again there since over extended-mile; both runs in testing ground. Needs to improve.
Half-sister to 6f-1m winner General Marius out of a US 1m winner, herself half-sister to 6f Listed winner Mehronissa. Big price and always in rear on debut at Kempton 345 days ago and needs a major step forward on that.
