€70,000 yearling by Bated Breath. Outpaced when ninth of 12 in a Chelmsford novice on debut last month, and blinkers swiftly reached for after that moderate display.
Dam a Listed 2-y-o 7f winner, and this son of Shamardal cost 70,000 gns as a yearling. Disappointing on debut at Doncaster (6f, soft) last month, but quite well backed there, and presumably thought capable of better.
Best effort in three starts to date when 5¾L sixth of 9 to Majaalis in a 6f novice at Doncaster last time, but that form is only modest, and he's vulnerable to less-exposed rivals.
Son of Helvellyn who shaped much better than the bare result when 11¼L fourth of 6 to Mubakker in a 6f novice at Kempton a fortnight ago. Type to improve markedly, and has place claims on that basis.
Half-brother to yard's useful Herculean and G3 6f winner Fair Eva (both by Frankel). Needed experience when 8½L third of 6 to Mubakker on debut at Kempton, and holds Hellovasinger on that running. Sure to progress.
Well held twice as a two-year-old, but improved when head third of 9 to Orange Blossom in a 5f Kempton novice on his return, despite finding the trip on the sharp side. Fair claims if repeating that effort.
Has started slowly and achieved very little in two starts to date. May do better somewhere down the line, but needs this for a handicap mark, and unwise to expect fireworks.
Representing same connections as Can I Kick It, and while she's quite well related, she appears to have little ability, so unlikely that the fitting of a visor will have a notable effect.
Dark Angel filly who hinted at ability on debut at Ffos Las last month, but also showed plenty of temperament, veering and then hanging left as she weakened.
