Zoffany colt. Cost 50,000gns as a yearling. Half-brother to three winners. Pleasing debut run last month when briefly losing his position over 1f out before staying on strongly in the closing stages to win by ½L. Open to plenty of improvement here.
Colt by Golden Horn out of a Galileo mare. Fifth of 16 beaten over 6L on debut in a maiden on yielding ground over C&D last month. Likely to improve but this looks a tough assignment.
Improved for a change in tactics when making virtually all in a Galway maiden over 7f when last seen in July beating Shekhem a neck. The runner-up has since won at Listowel. Looks sure to progress.
Has developed well over the season, culminating in a win at the fourth time of asking for connections when landing a Listowel 7f maiden on soft ground earlier this month. More progression expected.
Colt by Make Believe out of a Lawman mare. Well held and never nearer on debut when finishing ninth of 16 beaten 12L behind Sinawann over C&D last month on yielding ground. Tough ask.
