17:50 Wolverhampton Sat 7 December 2019
€27,000 foal (6,500gns vendor yearling); 66-1 when a debut fifth of 12 (beaten 25L) to Dancing Harry in a heavy ground novice at Newbury (1m).
€62,000 juvenile; slowly improving with racing having ventured over to France for his last couple of starts; seventh of nine (33-1) at Deauville (7½f, standard) latest; more realistic targets await.
44,000gns juvenile; has made absolutely no impact in two starts to date (1m-1m2f) and simply can't be recommended; stablemate of the equally unappealing Mack The Knife.
Australia colt (€155,000 yearling); has appeared to be devoid of any ability on the track to date, failing to beat a single rival Kempton (1m) and Chelmsford (1m2f) respectively; stablemate of Jersey Grey.
Unraced Zoffany colt; eighth foal from a twice-raced dam; half-brother to seven winners, including Ashadihan (6f-7f) and Mythical Madness (1m-1m2f).
Unraced Zoffany gelding (50,000gns yearling); second foal from a half-sister to the 1m Group 1 winner Echelon and the 1m Group 2 winner Chic; gelded and has had wind surgery ahead of racecourse debut.
Kingman colt; fourth foal from the 1m2f Group 3 winner Waldlerche; half-brother to none other than the Arc hero Waldgeist (1m-1m4f) in addition to Waldlied (1m4f Grp 2) and Waldstern (1m-1m2f); a truly fascinating newcomer from a top trainer.
Slade Power colt; took a step forward when finishing strongly (closing at the finish) behind the William Haggas-trained Fruition at Lingfield (1m) three weeks ago; will probably find a race of this nature, albeit a much less competitive one.
Invincible Spirit colt (120,000gns vendor yearling) from a stamina-laden dam (the 1m6f winner Filia Regina); green on debut at Lingfield (1m) three weeks ago when finishing seventh of 12 to Fruition - four places behind the reopposing Zeimaam.
No Nay Never filly; tailed off on both starts to date (5f); steps up markedly in trip with seemingly no chance whatsoever against this calibre of opponent; look elsewhere with immense confidence.
Unraced Holy Roman Emperor filly; second foal from a Group-placed 1m4f winner (Drifting Mist); interesting to see how she fares on debut with the future in mind; however, she's considered highly unlikely to play any significant role tonight.
