29-5OR:
100/1

€52,000 Teofilo colt who made an unpromising start to his career when finishing well down the field over 1m on his Tapeta debut at Newcastle. Never involved he needs to show more before he can be of interest.

7/1

One of two newcomers from this stable with this one looking to be the first string although the market may well assist in that regard. First foal; dam, 7f winner, half-sister to smart 7f winner Muwaary; of obvious interest given these connections.

Given a considerate introduction behind the smart Kinross at Newmarket (7f, good/soft) with that form having been franked by two next time out winners already. Bred to be smart, will stay this trip and well up to this sort of test.

€37,000 yearling by Intello who makes his debut for a yard with a 14% strike rate with 2yo newcomers since 2015. Half-brother to French 1m2f/1m3f winner On The Rox; dam unraced half-sister to smart 2yo 1m winner Rosanara.

Appears to be the lesser-fancied of the two newcomers from this yard according to the market/jockey bookings. Closely related to useful 1m winner Magical Rhythms; dam, 2yo 1m winner, half-sister to very smart 7f winner Gustav Klimt.

Went backwards from a turf debut where he showed some ability when switched to the AW at Newcastle last time over today's trip. Possibly worth another chance given his yard although he may be one for handicaps after this outing.

29-5OR:
16/1

Given a considerate introduction over 1m at Kempton having little chance from his track position but not knocked around at all. Very much gave the impression that there was more to come with the experience tucked away; lively outsider.

29-5OR:
40/1

Bred to be a little sharper/speedier than the majority of his rivals on debut he disappointed to an extent beating only a couple home over 7f at Newmarket. That debut came some while ago and maybe he'll be better back off a break.

16/1

Attracted support on his debut at Newbury (8f, heavy) which was a little surprising given he's bred to need time and distance. Slow away, he was too inexperienced to show anything; given the market interest he's clearly thought of as better.

Newcomer; looks to be the pick of the two from this yard despite that factor. 90,000 guineas yearling; closely related to useful winner up to 1m Sporting Chance (2yo 6f winner); dam 1m4f winner. Trainer near 17% with 2yo debutants since 2015.

One of two that the yard run in this (looks the pick); had two quick runs, showing more second time out when finishing midfield at Kempton over 1m. Made ground up late, given a considerate ride; looks one who is being brought along steadily.

Newcomer from a yard that have another runner in this (have just an 8% strike-rate with debutants since 2015). Half-sister to 2yo 7f winner Youthful, dam, 1m2f winner, half-sister to 1m-1m2f winner Kingdom of Fife and winner up to 1m Four Winds.

Would appear to be the lesser fancied of the two that come from this yard having made an unpromising start to her career looking laboured over 1m in soft ground at Windsor. Has a decent pedigree, should be capable of better but best watched for now.

Betting

Forecast

Al Qaqaa (8/13), Colonize (9/2), Alkhat (7/1), Spanish Kiss (16/1), Sure I'm Your Man (16/1), You Owe Me (16/1), Bee Able (33/1), Been Bobbied (33/1), Stepney Causeway (40/1), Spring To Mind (40/1), Provocation (66/1), Good Try (66/1), African Sun (100/1)

Verdict

Like the other previous novice over one furlong less this 1m version has a good mixture of newcomers and those with some experience. Again John Gosden saddles some interesting debutants with Alkhat and Colonize and both would be of interest with market support. However, the race that AL QAQAA made his debut in looks a smart one with the form already working out well and he should be able to score on his second racecourse appearance. Spanish Kiss, You Owe Me and Bee Able are all worth noting for the future.
  1. Al Qaqaa
  2. Alkhat
  3. Colonize
