200,000euros yearling who's a half-sister to Fearless Bay (0-6 on turf; 4-6 on the AW); not seen in seven months since finishing second in a Polytrack maiden for Jean-Claude Rouget at Deauville last winter; the market will doubtless tell a tale.

Two encouraging runs in France and she ran out the ready winner of a 7f novice at Salisbury (soft) on her stable debut two weeks ago; not obviously thrown in on that form but she did travel strongly and could have more to come as a sprinter; interesting.

Has shown ability in his last three starts and did well to finish third of ten on handicap debut at Bath (1m, good to soft) last time given that he didn't enjoy a smooth trip; could make an impact on AW debut, though he could do with breaking better than he has been.
