13:50 Newbury Fri 20 September 2019
200,000 gns son of Dark Angel out of a dual Listed winner. Half-brother to the useful Feliciana De Vega who was unbeaten as a juvenile in 2018. Stable capable of landing one of these here at a big price so hard to overlook.
Switched stables having shown ability on both starts on contrasting surfaces. The form of the latter race has been upheld since and he has every chance in a race apparently lacking quality in depth. Stable took a division of this in 2018.
Has shown modest ability in both starts to date at huge odds. Faces another difficult task here and impossible to recommend.
Related to two winning sprinters and cost €11,000 as a foal. Never sighted on debut when going off at 100/1 and likely to be a similar story again.
By Australian sire Hallowed Crown out of a 7f winner. Half-brother to Group 2 winning juvenile Barraquero. Stable have had a quiet year with this age group, Owney Madden apart, and the market is usually informative in terms of their prospects.
Bred to sprint and overcame trouble at the start to run a big race at Salisbury on debut. Does not need to improve much on that in order to figure.
Son of Gleneagles has been gelded since a promising Windsor debut in June. Looked keen that day and a draw out on the wing may not be helpful.
Promising sort. Improved from debut effort to finish second in 6f Windsor novice contest when outpaced slightly at a crucial stage. The winner and third have both scored since and this 6f should be more up his street.
Rock of Gibraltar gelding. Brother to winner up to 1m2f Graceful James and closely related to a couple of fair 1m winners. Made little impression on debut and he looks one for the longer term.
Sepoy half-sister to 1000 Guineas winner Billesdon Brook and to another useful filly Billesdon Bess. Stable have won four of the last ten divisions of this and two were newcomers. Hard to overlook.
Stepped up considerably when third of eight at Brighton last time, but significant further progress ought to be needed in order to win this. Trainer 2-83 with juveniles here in past five years.
Well-beaten on both starts thus far and stable record in this type of event does not suggest she will be causing a surprise here.
Fast Company filly out of a well-bred Godolphin maiden. Stable have a record of doing well with older horses and they are just 1-24 with this age group over the last five campaigns.
