Epaulette gelding. Dam was a winner up to 1m and is related to useful performers, including former Royal Ascot winner Forgotten Hero. Stable rarely has juvenile winners so is best watched for now.

€57,000 purchase by Camelot. Closely related to several winners and is a half-brother to 1m2f high-class winner Collection. Interesting contender on debut.

War Front colt. Half-brother to two-year-old Grade One winner Hit It A Bomb and Cheveley Park Stakes winner Brave Anna. Pedigree is a standout and the one to beat on debut.

Dawn Approach colt. Dam was unraced but a sister to former Irish Derby winner Soldier Of Fortune. Has a fine mix of speed and stamina in pedigree and may go well on debut.

£40,000 colt. Dam was a maiden but produced 7f winner Haweeya and is a half-sister to 1m winner Emirates Gold. Good pedigree so is respected.

Due Diligence gelding. Half-brother to the smart More Than Likely and dam was a 5f winner as a two-year-old. Tongue strap on debut suggests he might not be the easiest to deal with.

€50,000 purchase as a juvenile. Dam was unraced but 1m4f winner Kidmenever. Yard has been known to ready one for debut before so worth a betting check.

Price increased with age until sold for £58,000 as a juvenile. By Lope De Vega and represents leading connections so cannot be discounted.

Cost a hefty $2.4million as a yearling. Dam was a Grade One winner up to 1m in the US. Stable is in good form but second string on jockey bookings. Betting should guide.

€160,000 yearling by Intello. Full brother to 1m2f winner Inference and closely related to various winners, including 1m scorer Answered. Strong pedigree which suggests he could go well on debut.

Make Believe filly who cost €30,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to three winners including Royal Razima (6f). Yard rarely has juvenile winner though which is an obvious concern.

Red Jazz filly who was a cheap purchase as a foal. Pedigree has some winners in it and dam was a scorer over 1m who stayed 1m4f. Likely to be better in the long-term.

Zoffany filly out of a dam who failed to win on the track but has produced 1m1f winner Zaitana. Of some interest but may be vulnerable to classier rivals.

Camelot filly. Dam scored twice on the flat but all of her progeny has won a race, including four-time winner Bid Adieu. Yard's juveniles tend to run well so warrants respect.

Mastercraftsman filly. Pedigree doesn't offer much but is a half-sister to 6f winner Sonaiyla. Others offer more appeal on paper however.

Holy Roman Emperor filly. Half-Sister to juvenile winner Enraptured and 1m winner Pincheck. Should fare better over further in time.

Betting

Forecast

Sindhia (7/2), Early Bright (9/2), Now The King (11/2), St James's Square (7/1), Battle Of Liege (8/1), Valeria Messalina (9/1), Psyche (10/1), Stalingrad (12/1), Miss Myers (16/1), Daylight Come (18/1), Al Ruwais (20/1), Unanswered (20/1), Rosa Albertine (20/1), Royal Casamento (33/1), Jazzelle (50/1), Light Seeker (50/1), Accessory (66/1), Believe Me Too (100/1)

Verdict

BATTLE OF LIEGE has top-level form in his pedigree and is closely related to two precocious juveniles. This looks a good oppurtunity against some average rivals to make a winning debut for a top yard and it is likely he is held in high regard given his relations. The betting should guide his chance alongside St James's Square, who was an expensive purchase but could be one for the future given jockey booking, while Unanswered has a winning pedigree and his trainer is known to send out juvenile winners. He could be a dark horse to the main competitors.
