Age: 2|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: L P Keniry |  T: J S Moore

Cost 800gns as a foal; fifth foal; half-brother to the 2m hurdle winner Let's Sway; stablemate of Sparrow Hawk; others make more appeal.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: Hector Crouch |  T: Ed Walker

80,000gns yearling; green on debut when finishing ninth of ten (33-1) to Kenzai Warrior at Salisbury (1m, good) - that race has worked out well; this looks to be a marginally easier option.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: Charles Bishop |  T: Miss E C Lavelle

Resold as a yearling for 48,000gns; half-brother to the 7f-1m juvenile winner Geneva Convention; outpaced on debut before keeping on to finish fifth of 20 (beaten 9L) to With Respect at Newbury (6½f, heavy).

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: K T O'Neill |  T: P F I Cole

Resold as a yearling for 45,000gns; sixth foal; half-brother to the 5f-6f winner Hototo; dam was a French Listed-placed 1m2f winner.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: P J McDonald |  T: J Tate

82,000gns foal, 50,000gns yearling; sixth foal; half-brother to four winners including Munhamek (7f-1m) and Anif (1m-1m2f); juveniles from the Tate yard must always be given immense respect.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: R Havlin |  T: Mrs A J Perrett

Australia colt; third foal; closely related to the 1m4f winner Sing A Rainbow; probably one for further down the line once experience has been banked; stablemate of Transition.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: Jack Mitchell |  T: R Varian

Dark Angel colt; has run to an identical mark on both starts to date; 9-2 when beaten 2¾L by Louganini at Newmarket (7f, soft) earlier this month - form franked since by third-placed Celestran.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: L Morris |  T: Sir Mark Prescott

US bred colt; cost $90,000 as a yearling; third foal; half-brother to the 1m2f AW winner Battle Of Paradise; ticks plenty of the required boxes, so it's probably worth noting any positive market move.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: Rob Hornby |  T: Richard Spencer

Frankel colt (75,000gns yearling); is gradually learning his trade; 25-1 and ran on for pressure when fourth to Chinese Whisperer at Wolverhampton (1m+) six weeks ago.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: Josephine Gordon |  T: Mrs L Wadham

Sir Percy colt (45,000gns yearling); 33-1 when last of 14 on debut at Kempton (1m); very raw and inexperienced on that occasion, so ideally will need to have come on leaps and bounds in a short period of time.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: J Fanning |  T: Mrs A J Perrett

Oasis Dream colt (75,000gns yearling); was spotted doing strong late work when finishing 3½L fourth to Rovaniemi in a 7f novice here in early October; stablemate of the unraced Moomba.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-0  |  J: Callum Shepherd |  T: J S Moore

6,000gns foal; ninth foal; half-sister to the 2m4f hurdle winner Cruachan; stablemate of Beggarman; doesn't make a great deal of appeal on paper for this type of event; look elsewhere.



Naizagai (4/5), Transition (4/1), Grey Fox (8/1), Line Of Enquiry (10/1), Sefton Warrior (16/1), Moomba (20/1), Pleasure Garden (20/1), Glorious Caesar (25/1), Jazz Party (33/1), Sir Dandy (33/1), Sparrow Hawk (100/1), Beggarman (100/1)


An interesting race which features a number of noteworthy newcomers (namely but not exhaustive to Pleasure Garden and Line Of Enquiry). However, with a reasonable standard of form already in the book we'll elect to focus upon experience for the solution. Transition is the pick of the Amanda Perrett duo, and this extra furlong should stand her Oasis Dream colt in excellent stead, while it'll come as no real surprise if Glorious Caesar is more competitive than was the case at Salisbury. Nevertheless with the third-placed Celestran franking his most recent form (Newmarket), the Roger Varian runner NAIZAGAI gets the vote.
