Made all, drawing clear inside the final furlong to score by 3½L over 6f here (good) a fortnight ago; there's no obvious reason as to why this extra yardage shouldn't be within range; key player.
Bang in contention until worried out of things close home (fifth) at Ayr (7f, good) last week; is well drawn in stall 2 and should continue to progress; place claims with stable absolutely flying at present.
Kodiac colt (€40,000 juvenile); 28-1 when fifth of 11 to Desert Safari in a Wolverhampton maiden (6f) three weeks ago; encounters rain-softened ground for turf debut; is bred to stay this trip and beyond.
€25,000 juvenile; makes very limited appeal based upon what he's shown on the track so far; 15-2 when a one-paced sixth of seven at Goodwood (1m; good) last month.
£33,000 yearling; second foal from a 1m1f-1m3f winning dam (Negotiate); made a very low-key debut at Southwell (7f) last week; in excellent hands and could fare better on this more conventional racing surface; still early days.
Dragon Pulse colt (£12,000 yearling); 0-4 so far, making little impact on nursery debut at Ffos Las (7½f, good) five weeks ago; this looks to be considerably more competitive; look elsewhere with confidence.
£30,000 yearling; son of the Derby winner Sir Percy; returned from a three-month absence with a most pleasing second to Cobber Kain (John Gosden) at Chelmsford (7f) 24 days ago, looks set to play leading role.
€24,000 foal; £35,000 yearling; first foal from a 1m2f winning dam (Miss Lucy Jane); well drawn on debut for local trainer Tom Dascombe; market should offer an indicative guide.
Chester regular; eight-race maiden; runner-up to Nirodha at Redcar (7f, good to firm) on her penultimate start; not as effective latest, and ought to find a few stronger; carries the Dr Marwan Koukash silks.
