£16,000 son of Most Improved looked untrustworthy before finishing tailed off on bumper debut. Has little going for him in this company.
Showed little in three runs in Ireland and was picked up for 10,000 gns last month. Future lies in handicaps so easily passed over here.
Half-sister to eight winners including a Listed scorer in France. Stable have been going through a quiet spell and she is best watched with an eye to the future.
Market signals were negative ahead of his Chelmsford debut and he ran accordingly. Positive jockey booking this time and trainer 20-56 with this age group around here.
Makes little appeal on pedigree being by a National Hunt sire out of a moderate mare. Stable just 4-118 in Flat maidens over past five years.
Second at Sandown under a positive ride but a huge disappointment next time. The ground looked a plausible excuse, but a gelding operation and the application of blinkers suggest there may be more sinister factors. The market should be informative.
One of three in the contest for a stable with a modest record in this class of event. Dramatic improvement required.
Unraced Golden Horn filly out of an Irish Oaks runner-up who is yet to produce a winner. Still makes some appeal in this company in receipt of generous allowances and stable had a winner here on Friday.
Mastercraftsman filly out of a maiden sister to smart 1¼m-1½m winner Clowance. Did not show enough on debut to be of interest unless the market suggests otherwise.
By Australia and out of a dam who has produced three winners from her first four foals. Yard can get one ready first time out and she is worth a look in the market.
Bred to better than she has shown, but she qualifies for handicaps after this and that is probably where her future lies.
