Son of Iffraaj gelded ahead of debut; 16th foal and a half-brother to eight winners including Whazzis (Group 3) and Whazzat (Listed). Probably best watched.
Improved on his well beaten debut when last of three but not beaten far over this C&D. The form is questionable due to a sedate pace and he may be better over further in handicaps in due course.
Five races have yielded four seconds and a third and despite travelling strongly he's struggled to get past where it matters. Up in distance and likely to be involved but the jury is out.
$750,000 son of War Front and the first foal of a US Grade 3 dirt winner. 5/2 but too green and tailed off over 1m2f here last year. With a strong stable and has had wind and a gelding operation since but hard to weigh up in first time blinkers.
Daughter of Frankel made a very good introduction when a staying on second over 1m3f at Kempton. Could have done with a stronger pace and this extra distance should only suit. Leading contender.
Had been quickly upped in distance until tailed off over 2m2f latest. Hard to know what her best trip is from five starts and she'll need to find some improvement.
Intello filly has shown steady progress in three starts so far. Totally unsuited by a sedate pace in a three runner contest here over 1m2f here latest and no surprise to see her take a big step forwards up in distance.
Last Year's Winner
