Made it second-time lucky (after a four month absence) when taking the scalp of the Charlie Appleby-trained Story Of Light at Lingfield (7f); carries a 7lb penalty as a result for the in-form Watson and Doyle combination.
Kingman colt; tenth foal; closely related to the 1m-1m4f AW winner Alma Linda; half-brother to six winners, including Alla Speranza (1m-1m2f Group 3); market a helpful guide in assessing his chances.
War Command gelding (22,000gns yearling); first foal from an unraced dam who was a half-sister to the Group 3 runner Airmail Special; previously declared (non-runner) at Thirsk on 03/07/2019.
Henrythenavigator gelding (£11,000 yearling); is already exposed as a modest performer - tailed-off at Chelmsford (1m) ten days ago; cheekpieces now applied.
Muhaarar colt from a 6f-7f winning dam; was beaten in excess of 7L (third) by Sky Commander at Kempton (7f) last month, although that did represent an improved effort; couldn't be totally dismissed in a winnable contest.
No Nay Never colt (45,000gns yearling); dam was a 7f-1m winner; 12-1 when finishing 4L third to Ivatheengine on debut at Kempton (6f) 32 days ago; further improvement needed, albeit remains a distinct possibility.
Le Harve gelding; regressed from debut (did meet some trouble in-running) when finishing last of nine at Wolverhampton (7f) 31 days ago; it remains difficult to identify an obvious positive angle; look elsewhere.
