Form & Verdict

Well-bred colt who holds an Irish Derby entry; not particularly impressive when odds-on winner of Kempton novice (1m, AW) on second start in the autumn, but the form is useful and he's open to considerable improvement over middle-distances this year; hooded first time; good chance.

700,000gns purchase, by Sea The Stars; Irish Derby entry; duly showed a good deal of promise at Salisbury (1m) six weeks ago, going down by only a short head; the clear form choice and could prove useful in due course; strongly respected.

Out of a half-sister to a Japanese 1m Group 1 winner; displayed clear promise on both 2yo starts, latterly when fourth of 13 at Kempton (7f, AW) in September; likely to improve this season; each-way claims at least.

J: Richard Kingscote

Looked in need of the experience when seventh of 13 at Newbury on debut five weeks ago (7f, good to soft); that race is a particularly strong formline though and he shouldn't be underestimated with the run behind him.

Represents a top stable, but his only 2yo run was disappointing and he finished well down the field when reappearing at Nottingham (8.3f, good to soft) this month.

Cost 130,000euros as a yearling but he finished a remote last of six in Newbury maiden (1m, good to soft; 12-1) on his debut last August; been gelded since and he needs major improvement after 266 days off.

OR:

Form & Verdict

Out of a half-sister to two Group winners; made quite promising debut when midfield at Newmarket (1m, soft) in the autumn, but was a very disappointing favourite when reappearing over 1m2f this month and it's hard to know what to expect from him here.

310,000euros yearling; second foal; dam Group-placed 6f 2yo winner (RPR 96) from US family; late foal but this Galileo colt from major yard (also runs City Burglar) needs a check.
