Acclamation colt (€33,000 yearling); first foal from a half-sister to the 5f-1m2f winner Bronze Maquette; in excellent hands; is a noteworthy debutant.
Filled the midfield (66-1) behind the odds-on winner Ascension over C&D last month; made no natural improvement on second start at Hamilton (6f, soft) a few weeks later; look elsewhere.
Intello colt; ninth foal from a useful dam (the Fillies' Mile winner Red Bloom); brother to the 7f-1m winner Masked Identity; in excellent hands and rates as one to note in the market exchanges; stablemate of Dutch Monument.
Eighth foal; half-brother to the 5f-6f winner Perfect Pasture, and the 5f scorer Perfect Peak; out-ran his 33-1 odds at Pontefract (6f, good to soft) when finishing 2½L third to Alben Spirit.
Acclamation colt (4,500gns yearling, rose to £130,000 as a juvenile); dam was a half-sister to the 7f-1m Listed winner Dunelight, the 1m Listed winner Sperry and the Wokingham winner Inception; trainer is 2-12 (17%) with his juveniles at Newcastle.
Coach House filly (8,500gns vendor yearling); fifth foal from a 6f winning mare (Velvet Band); half-sister to the talented Penny Pot Lane (5f-6f); could prove capable of winning races in the future with this initial experience banked.
Dutch Art filly (£16,000 yearling); 11th foal; sister to the Italian winner Lohit (5f-6f), and a half-sister to three other winners, most notably the Italian 1,000 Guineas scorer Lokaloka; stable second string behind Innings?
Swiss Spirit filly (10,000gns yearling); started 150-1 when finishing fifth of 11 to Jovial (Sir Michael Stoute) over C&D last month; others considered as more realistic options.
Cost €23,000 as a juvenile; attracted some each-way interest (33's-20's) on debut at Carlisle (6f, good to soft), but could only finish seventh of 12 to Stormy Girl; needs to raise her game markedly; stablemate of Slingshot.
Dark Angel filly (£45,000 yearling); expensive based upon what she's achieved so far - fifth of eight to Glasvegas at Hamilton (5f, good to firm) in May; moves up in trip on return from a 147-day break; stablemate of Carla Erangey.
Es Que Love filly; has run to a similar level of form on both starts; must improve a fair chunk upon her latest 5L Wolverhampton (6f) fifth to Brad The Brief; considered unlikely.
Due Diligence filly (£10,000 yearling); wide of the target on debut at Carlisle (6f, good to firm), ran green throughout in finishing eighth of 13 to Lampang; has a very similar overall profile to stablemate Niamh's Starlight.
No Nay Never filly; €17,000 yearling (resold for 80,000gns) before fetching 160,000gns as a juvenile; fourth foal; half-sister to two winners (Damselfly, 5f-7f; Cosmic Horizon, 7f); definitely for the shortlist for The Cool Silk Partnership.
