Has shown promise on both starts over 1m-1m2f on Tapeta and Polytrack. Now needs to transfer that to testing ground on turf. Dam was placed on her only try on very soft in France, so there is hope he can act and if so, he's a big player.
Not involved in any of his three starts so far, and others make much greater appeal.
3-1 but finished last of eight, beaten 36L on debut at Southwell (1m, AW) last month. That effort is a concern, but he may be able to produce more now on turf, and being by Pivotal there is optimism he will handle deep ground.
Left Dermot Weld before having a run and was 20-1 on debut for this trainer, when running green but gradually getting the hang of things at Lingfield (1m, AW) recently. Needs a lot of improvement on that, however, to trouble the principals.
Showed some ability at a minor level so far, improving on his debut at Wolverhampton (1m1½f, AW) when returning there over a furlong shorter last time, to finish an 11½L third. Should have place claims again here.
Third foal. Stellar pedigree. Brother to French 7f winner Dufay. Dam unbeaten 6f-1m 2yo winner (inc Group 1 Fillies' Mile). Top stable 21% with 3yos on turf this year. Should be capable of a good debut.
Seventh foal. Half-sister to three winners including She Is No Lady (1m3f-1m6f inc Listed/AW) & Linnens Star (1m). Dam a 1m winner. Nice pedigree, but stable not noted for debut scorers, so probably one to watch.
Big prices and well held on both starts so far, at Bath and Lingfield. Can only watch.
16-1 and well held on debut at Chelmsford (1m, AW) last month. That was more promising than the form of some in this field, and while handicaps surely await, she might be able to make a play for some minor money here.
Third foal. Half-sister to 5f-5¾f winner Ladweb. Dam 5f-6f winner (including on soft). Stable's turf 3yos 9% this season and not noted for debut scorers. Probably one to watch.
Big prices and has shown very little in two starts. Can't give her any chance here.
First foal. Dam placed 1m½f AW 2yo, half-sister to 1m1f Group 3 winner Charlie Farnsbarns. Trainer 0-45 with turf 3yos this season. Can only watch this filly on debut.
Has gone off at long odds and performed as they suggested in both starts. Tongue-tie goes on here, but impossible to fancy her.
