14:25 Catterick Sat 21 September 2019
Made all to score on nursery debut at Ascot (6f, good to firm) in July, but hasn't quite progressed as well as expected since; more like it when third in a Class 3 contest at Chelmsford (6f) three weeks ago; tackles a new trip.
Made all in a four-runner contest at Musselburgh (7f, good to firm) last month, in the process supplying Rebecca Menzies with a first ever juvenile winner; far from disgraced in a competitive Class 2 fillies' nursery at Doncaster (6½f) last week.
£50,000 Equiano yearling; bred for speed, evident in all three starts to date - weakening to finish sixth of eight to Vindicate in a 1m Chelmsford novice latest; fair mark for handicap debut and a rare Catterick runner for Brian Meehan.
Five-race maiden; without running necessarily poorly hasn't shown a great deal of improvement either for the switch to nurseries; needs the first-time cheekpieces to provide that extra edge in order to be majorly competitive.
Kyllachy colt (90,000gns yearling); has made steady, if unspectacular progress to date, but hailing from one of the major stables could admittedly improve for the switch to nurseries; has experience of Catterick - one-paced fifth to Mischief Star.
Has had plenty of chances to break the maiden (0-8), but in all fairness is a fairly consistent juvenile; 1lb lower than when a modest fourth to Powertrain at Chester (7f, good) last week; others hold more compelling claims.
