Scored at Chepstow (7f) on his second career start where he made a big improvement from his debut, scoring in the 11 runner contest by 2L. Will need to carry a penalty here as he looks to follow up. Can't discount.
Showed a lot of promise on his debut at Redcar (7f) when he finished second of 11. He was staying on well at the finish to suggest this step up in trip will help. Is a leading contender here on his second start.
Make Believe colt who was foaled on April 15 and cost €27,000 as a foal. His dam won over 1m4f. He is a half-brother to Estremoz who prevailed from 1m2f-1m3f. Best to watch on his opening appearance.
Camelot colt who was foaled on February 9. His dam was a 7f winner and a half-sister to Olimpic Girl who won at trips up to 1m2f. Keep an eye out for any strong market support on his first start.
Was well held on his debut at Windsor (1m) when he finished ninth of 13 runners. He never really got into the race on his opening start. Needs to take a huge stride forward here to be competitive.
Has struggled on both of his two starts so far. He was 12th of 13 at Sandown (1m) on his opening run, while last time he came home at the rear of 10 runners at Goodwood (1m2f). Hard to fancy.
Finished second of nine on his debut here over 7f. The trip was too sharp for him last time at Salisbury (6f). Back up in trip. One to consider if he builds upon his smart opening performance at this track.
Was prominent on his debut at this track over 7f before weakening in the final 2f after going off at 66/1. Stepping up in trip now. More can be expected this time, however, others are preferred.
Was not far away on his debut when he was sixth of 12 on his debut at Windsor (6f). Did not build upon that performance last time as he was ninth of 13 at this track over 6f. Stepping up in trip now. Needs to improve.
Outstrip colt who was foaled on April 6 and cost €90,000 as a foal. His dam was a maiden but a half-sister to Cape Amber who won over 1m2f. Likely to do better once he has experience on his side.
Finished fifth of 13 on his opening start at Chelmsford (1m) on the AW. He faltered out of the stalls but finished the race strongly. Should be much better this time around. Has each-way claims.
Has been well held on his two starts to date, including his latest effort at Sandown (1m) where he was seventh of 12 runners after going off at 33/1. Need to improve on what he has shown so far.
