14:40 Windsor Mon 7 October 2019
Left his debut form well behind on the AW (Tapeta) last time over an extended 1m leaving the impression that he may do better still. This will be his first try on ground such as this (dam won soft); gains a mark after this for handicaps.
Stable have decent record with 2yo newcomers so this 100,000 guineas yearling has to be respected especially with a useful pedigree. Half-brother to several winners, including smart 1m2f winner Ame Bleue (by Dubawi) and useful 1m2f winner Artiste Div
Camelot gelding who showed a little ability on his first start over 1m at Ffos Las on ground with some ease. Looks the sort to improve but hard to see him making enough progress to get involved.
Rare 2yo runner from this yard but wasn't a cheap purchase (50,000 guineas 2yo); half-brother to several winners, including 2yo 6f-1m winner Amourette and 1m4f winner Ciboure. Interesting pedigree and any market interest should be noted.
Has the best form of those to have run so far having finished fourth on his debut at Leicester (7f, good/firm). Has plenty of scope for progress now that he steps up in trip. Like most he needs to prove he can handle these conditions.
€12,000 yearling by Tin Horse; half-brother to a winner at up to 1m1f, dam French maiden half-sister to smart winner up to 1m Night Chapter. Yard 5-39 with 2yo newcomers this year, worth a glance in the market.
Showed nothing but inexperience on his debt on the AW over 1m, very slow away and always behind. Hard to imagine he will show anything more here; best watched.
Zebedee colt, €17,000 yearling out of a lightly-raced dam half-sister to smart winner up to 1m Tazahum out of useful 2yo 7f winner Huja. Yard not as prolific with their newcomers as they were (12-107 this season); would need to see market support.
Too inexperienced to do himself justice on his Sandown debut he showed a lot more on his Fibresand debut despite still not looking the finished article. Now steps up a furlong back on turf (bred to stay); has to be respected with his experience.
Newcomer (holds a Derby entry); €27,000 yearling, half-brother to 3 winners, including winner up to 1m Mocklershill and 6f (including at 2yo) winner Vintage Red. First 2yo runner for the yard, watching brief advised.
One of two runners for the yard (not known for their 2yo winners); cheekpieces applied for her debut. Half-sister to 2-y-o 6f winner Bournemouth Belle, dam, 1m2f winner, half-sister to winner up to 9f Uncharted Haven.
Very green on her debut although she did manage to make a spot of late progress in a 7f Goodwood maiden in August. That run showed that she should do better at some stage; withdrawn on heavy ground at Nottingham last week, long-term prospect.
Yard have a 14% strike-rate with 2yo newcomers since 2015; half-sister to several winners, including useful 2yo 7f winner Savanna La Mar and smart 2yo 6f winner So In Love; looks an interesting candidate, one to keep in mind.
