Dark Angel colt. Half-brother to various winners, including 1m2f Group 2 winner Knight To Behold. Classy pedigree and shouldn't be discounted on racecourse debut.
Sent off rank outsider for debut but ran well above expectation when closing fifth of 11 in 7f Kempton contest. No reason why he can't improve again and merits respect.
Looked in need of the run and performed greenly on debut when seventh of 10 at Wolverhampton (7f) earlier this month. Will build on that effort but bit more needed.
Frankel colt. Dam was winner over 1m in France and half-sister to 1m winner Dancetrack. Hails from a top yard so not without hope.
£37,000 yearling purchase. Dam was nothing special on the track but is a sister to 6f winner Hold Your Colour. Not the greatest pedigree on paper so best watched on debut.
Gelding by Harbour Watch. Dam was a winner over 1m and related to smart sprinter Astrophysical Jet. Appears to be one who may get better with age.
75,000 gns yearling purchase. Half-brother to smart dual-purpose performer Hawk High. Dam was unraced so not much known on pedigree but yard have been in good form recently.
€22,000 foal. Half-brother to 1m2f winner Menin Gate but pedigree lacks much winning appeal. Yard in good form but others appeal more on paper. Best watched.
£22,000 yearling by Cable Bay. Dam was a modest performer over middle distances, but pedigree doesn't read as well as it should do and this looks a tall order.
Cheap £7,000 purchase as a yearling. By smart performer including dual winners Two Weeks and Expert Answer. Likeable enough pedigree but yard rarely have juvenile winners. Limited appeal.
Inexperienced sort but shaped encouragingly when fourth of 10 in 5f Windsor maiden earlier in the Summer. Not seen since that effort and faces drastic step up in trip. Market should be informative.
Shamardal colt. Half-brother to smart dual purpose performer Qewy. Dam was useful performer and half-sister to supersire Dubawi. Regal pedigree from powerful yard so can't be dismissed.
Already a gelding by Footstepsinthesand. Has several winners in pedigree, including 1m performer Moran Gra. Nicely bred but yard rarely have a juvenile winner.
