Done well in small fields so far and, as his dam was placed over 1m2f, he should get this new trip; debut on Tapeta but handled Polytrack well enough on his penultimate start, so merits at least a betting check.
A brother to 1m4f winner Strelka as well as being a half-brother to Derby winner, Workforce; out of a sister to St Leger winner Brian Boru, so ticks a lot of boxes on pedigree. Long term prospects look to be middle distances at least.
Ran above market expectations when second to a potentially smart type over a mile on debut at Newcastle 10 days ago; and has solid claims if he can build on that performance. He's bred to appreciate a synthetic surface so looks one to consider.
Cost £90,000 as a two-year-old and makes some appeal on pedigree; debut run was poor but he showed a glimmer of hope on the Polytrack at Kempton last month. More needed and looks a work progress for next year.
Cost 35,000 gns and is the first foal of an unraced daughter of Dispute, a four-time Grade 1 winner in the USA; yard also runs Wild Thunder and has secured the services of two leading jockeys of the moment. The betting will be useful.
A Dawn Approach colt who cost €110,000; his dam, a half-sister to the classy Franklins Gardens, was effective from 7f up to 1m2f during her time. From a yard with a healthy strike-rate with debutantes at this course; one to bear in mind.
Posted an eye-catching effort in a valuable maiden (the Class 2 Convivial Stakes) at York on debut in August. That form looks solid and has been boosted since; his dam won on the dirt in Japan, so reasonable to expect this surface will suit; player.
Cost just £800 as a yearling; he's out of an unraced half-sister to 1m Group 2 winner Spacious and has already been gelded. Lacks experience and others look far stronger options at this stage.
Well beaten in both previous starts and is bred to appreciate more of a test of stamina than she'll face here; big improvement required.
Stablemate of Recall It All who looks equally modest on pedigree; her debut run backed up that theory and the filly already has improvement to find. The step up in trip can help, though.
