Foaled February 10. £24,000 yearling, £95,000 2-y-o. Dam maiden (best effort at 1¼m). Yard no stranger to success with first-time-out 2-y-os, but this one is starting out in a warm-looking maiden.

Recent Newbury debut was not completely devoid of promise, but huge step forward will be needed if he's to figure prominently here.

Failed to land the odds on C&D debut at the beginning of the month, but it was a highly encouraging introduction nonetheless and this well-bred colt is bound to come on leaps and bounds. Big player.

Foaled April 5. Siyouni colt. Dam, 1½m/12.4f winner, half-sister to smart winner up to 9f (stayed 1½m) Greatwood. Likely-looking type representing powerful connections and market check a must.

Sent off at 40/1 and finished nearer last than first on recent debut at Newmarket (7f). In good hands and likely to leave that form well behind in time, but he's probably more of a long-term prospect.

Foaled February 21. €30,000 yearling. Brother to 6.5f winner Kendiss. Dam, French 2-y-o 5f/6f winner, half-sister to useful 7.5f-1¼m winner Yuman. Yard's newcomers tend to come on for a run.

Foaled May 2. Kingman colt. Brother to useful 7f/1m winner Boardman and half-brother to 7f-1m winner Balestra and smart 2-y-o 7f/1m winner Quadrilateral. Interesting to see what the market has to say.

Foaled March 31. 10,000 gns foal, 42,000 gns 2-y-o. Dam 6f winner. Stable enjoys its share of success with 2-y-o newcomers, but this one will probably need to be above average to make a winning debut.

Little impact on C&D debut last month and he'll probably come into his own over middle distances further down the line.

Shaped with promise starting out in a 7f Yarmouth maiden in May. Failed to build on that at Newmarket next time and though it's far too soon to write him off, others make more appeal.

Foaled March 1. £15,000 yearling. Closely related to 5.7f winner Youllovemewheniwin. Dam, 1m winner, sister to smart winner up to 6f Artistic Jewel. Doesn't appeal as a probable first-time-out winner.

Forecasts

Dukedom (10/11), King's Guard (5/2), Thesis (3/1), Majalh (13/2), Zechariah (8/1), Monet's Sunrise (12/1), Bullet Force (20/1), Tiempo Star (22/1), Victory (50/1), Come To Pass (50/1), Prince Of Rebels (66/1), Surrey Mist (125/1), Hen Harrier (150/1)

Verdict

Several of the newcomers are appealing, but DUKEDOM shaped like a ready-made future winner when runner-up on debut over this C&D and he earns the vote. The Dubawi colt didn't get the rub of the green on that occasion and he is open to plenty of improvement. King's Guard should make his presence felt, but bigger threats may be posed by likely-looking debutants Majalh, Monet's Sunrise and Thesis.
