Progressive form in maidens, winning by 4l in a first-time hood at Doncaster (1m2f, good to soft) despite again racing freely; others have superior form but he's a decent prospect.

Already boasts a fairly useful level of form, improving for his first run when beaten a head at Kempton (1m, AW; 11-1) in December; battled on well that day and should be suited by today's longer distance (brother to useful 1m2f winner Jaramillo); yard won this race in 2019 with Bangkok, who followed up in the Sandown Classic Trial; leading contender in first-time hood.

Another in the line-up who showed promise on his course debut, in his case finishing fourth over 7f 44 days ago; he's in good hands and is fancied to build on that.

130,000gns yearling; brother to 1m2f winner Jamarillo (RPR 93) and half-brother to 6f-7f winner Gambon (86); dam a Listed winner in Italy (1m3f); withdrawn having got upset in the stalls at Leicester on last month's intended debut (16-1 at the time); worth a second look.

130,000gns yearling; third foal; brother to 1m2f winner Jaramillo (RPR 86), half-brother to 6f-7f winner Gambon (86); dam 1m3f-1m4f winner (98), closely related to German 1m3f Group 3 winner Goathemala and German 10.5f Listed winner Galana; from powerful yard, he needs a close look.
