Nicely bred New Approach colt, readily opened account on second start at Nottingham (1m½f, soft; 11-10f) in October last. Absent since but likely tuned up for this return and key player.
Captain Gerrard gelding, 100-1 for Flat bow at Windsor (1m, good) in June and beaten close to 13L in finishing seventh of 10. Needs to improve on AW bow.
Paco Boy filly out of a winning sister to Oaks second Flight Of Fancy. Winner on debut last year at Wolverhampton and second next time at Lingfield (1m) behind subsequent Group 3 runner-up. Back from a break and respected.
Kingman colt. Half-brother to several winners, including useful 1m2f winner Vital Evidence and 1m winner First Response. Represents leading connections on debut, noted.
Well bred son of Scat Daddy who fetched 350,000 gns as yearling. Well held on debut at Yarmouth (1m) in April, race won by subsequent Listed winner/Group 1 placed King Of Comedy. Overall form strong and improvement likely.
Frankel colt. Half-brother to smart winner up to 1m Glorious Journey. Represents the William Haggas team on first start. Could be useful.
Lope De Vega half-brother to useful 1m-1m2f winner Iromea and 1m4½f winner Dusk Falls. Will have learned plenty from last month's Beverley debut (third) and yard in flying form now.
Oasis Dream colt, cost 210,000 as a yearling but has run two poor races on the AW so far. Off since March, will need to show some positives before being supported. Has undergone wind surgery.
Zoffany half-brother to several winners, including useful 7f-1m½f winner Catch The Eye. Finished last of 12 on debut over 1m2f at Goodwood this month.
Dutch Art filly. Dam unraced sister to smart 7f winner Photo Call out of smart 6f (including as a juvenile) winner Theann. Others more appealing on debut.
