20:00 Newcastle Tue 17 September 2019
Up in trip and hit the frame when 3L third to Luna Wish on nursery debut at Chelmsford (1m) 12 days ago; now sports first-time cheekpieces; trainer 3-30 (10%) at Newcastle.
Decisive 2¾L winner of a Catterick seller (7f, soft) on his penultimate start; respectable fourth (didn't quite stay 1m) in a Thirsk novice subsequently; makes his nursery debut in a weak race off a mark of 60.
Gelded and was sporting a first-time visor for his nursery debut at Carlisle (5f, heavy) latest; restless in the stalls and flopped accordingly; tackles a new trip on AW debut.
Has failed to progress since making a mildly promising debut at Pontefract (5f, good to firm) in May; 150/1 when 23rd of 24 in the Weatherbys Super Sprint Stakes at Newbury in July; modest since and now wears an added hood.
Beaten 6½L when fourth of six to Champagne Supanova on nursery debut at Chelmsford (6f) last month; eased 2lb since; steps up in trip to 7f for the first time; stablemate of Callipygian (yard in form).
Six-race maiden; has eased 6lb in the weights since introduced to nurseries; is very difficult to muster much enthusiasm for; stablemate of Red Maharani (yard in form).
Canford Cliffs gelding; has taken small steps forward in each of his three starts to date (6f) without really threatening as a future winner; tackles a new trip on nursery debut; market can guide.
Held no realistic chance (100-1) when finishing down the field behind the exciting Cape Palace over C&D 18 days ago; this rates as a far more realistic option; nursery debut.
Five-race maiden; some late headway (finished just in front of today's rival River Of Kings) when seventh of ten in a Carlisle nursery (7f, good to firm) last month; cheekpieces on for AW debut.
From a German Listed-placed miler, and a half-sister to the 1m3f winner Buriram so unsurprisingly has found 5f-6f to be on the sharp side; tackles a more suitable trip on nursery debut; possible improvement forthcoming.
Fountain Of Youth filly (£800 vendor); off the track for 77 days since finishing seventh of eight (25-1) to Dragon Command at Hamilton (6f, good) in July; tackles a new trip on nursery debut.
Well beaten on both previous starts in this grade (7f-7½f); is easing in the weights for the switch to the AW, but has plenty to prove.
Took a sizeable step forward on nursery debut at Lingfield (7f, good to firm) three weeks ago when second best to the David Evans-trained Lets Go Lucky; could take the beating back on the AW in newly applied headgear.
