Off time: 14:50 | Winning time: 1m 44.56s
350,000 gns yearling, Siyouni half-brother to 1¼m winner Jane Spirit. Looks the part but has made a low-key start in recent weeks.
Foaled February 20. €460,000 yearling, Invincible Spirit colt. Dam, 8.4f-11f winner, sister to useful winner up to 7f Seeharn and half-sister to smart winner up to 1m Yellow Rosebud.
Promising start when second of 7 in minor event at Sandown (7f, good to firm) in July. Returned with irregular heartbeat when last of 8 at Leicester a month later.
Sea The Stars colt who kept on nicely for fourth starting out in a 7f novice at Lingfield a month ago. Sure to improve with 1m expected to suit.
$40,000 yearling, 75,000 gns 2-y-o, Bernardini colt. Dam, French 1½m winner, half-sister to high-class winner up to 10.5f Shamardal out of useful winning sister to Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry.
Foaled February 27. €400,000 yearling, Sea The Stars colt. Half-brother to 2-y-o 1m winner Heart Reef. Dam, lightly-raced in France, half-sister to top-class winner up to 1½m Danedream.
Foaled April 17. 65,000 gns foal, Mastercraftsman colt. Dam, 7f/1m winner, half-sister to useful 7f winner Atlantic High.
Last of 14 in maiden at this course (7f, good to soft) on debut 16 days ago.
Foaled February 19. Sea The Stars colt. Dam, 7f/1m winner, half-sister to smart 11f-1½m winner (stayed 1¾m) Seal of Approval.
Foaled March 20. Dubawi colt. Dam unraced half-sister to high-class 1½m winner Manatee out of smart 9.5f/1¼m winner Galatee. Noteworthy newcomer for same connections as Castlebar.
In need of the experience when fourth of 10 in maiden at Sandown (7f, good to firm) on debut 45 days ago. Should progress with 1m certain to suit.
Just Fine (7/4), Top Brass (10/3), Siskany (4/1), Castlebar (13/2), Marine (12/1), War Thunder (12/1), Forever Forward (18/1), Military Mission (33/1), Landing System (40/1), Parachute (50/1), Aljaryaal (50/1), Night Eagle (150/1)
The Lingfield race JUST FINE finished fourth in on debut last month has received several subsequent boosts and this regally-owned Sea The Stars colt rates a sure-fire improver, particularly now running over 1m. He gets the vote, for all Godolphin are responsible for a couple of very likely newcomers in Siskany and Castlebar.
