Demonstrated ample early speed when a comfortable 3¾L debut winner at Thirsk (5f, good to soft); far too keen when disappointing in a Listed contest at York subsequently; a first-time hood is applied in a bid to curb that enthusiasm.
Debut winner at Redcar (5f, good) who contested the Group 3 Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot in June; drops back in trip (on a sound surface) after being bogged down late at Carlisle (6f, soft) four weeks ago.
Downed an 81-rated rival when striking on her second start (AW debut) at Chelmsford (5f) last month; appears just the type to continue progressing for the vastly experienced Newmarket trainer William Haggas; should go close.
Kyllachy filly (62,000gns yearling); took a small step forward on her second start at Thirsk (5f, soft) last month, finishing just under 4L fourth to Balancing Act; has since left David O'Meara to join Richard Fahey.
Brazen Beau gelding (£40,000 yearling); half-brother to two winners; 14-1 for debut at Ascot (6f, good to firm) 12 days ago, showing speed until the furlong pole - essentially a shade better than the bare finishing position (11th of 16) implies.
Brazen Beau gelding (5,000gns yearling); always on the back foot on debut at Catterick (5f, good to firm) a fortnight ago; needs to make an inordinate amount of improvement in order to threaten the principals here; unlikely.
70,000gns foal, value falling markedly to 7,000gns as a yearling; 25-1 and always in the rear on debut at Southwell (5f) three weeks ago; can't be considered as a realistic contender.
£22,000 yearling; went close to winning at Catterick (5f, good) three weeks ago when run down late by the Kevin Ryan-trained Romantic Vision; isn't without a chance, albeit faces stern competition for the lead in a much deeper contest.
£60,000 yearling; first foal from an unraced dam who was a half-sister to the 1m 2yo Listed winner Nakheel; James Tate has his string in excellent form at present, and has an 18% strike-rate with his juveniles this year; of interest.
Starspangledbanner filly; first foal out of a moderate dam who was a sister to the Group-placed 1m2f-1m3f winner Indian Chief; the market can provide some potential clues, albeit others are expected to be stronger and wiser.
