Form & Verdict
63,000euros first foal of a 6f Listed winner (RPR 100); set the pace when prominent in the market at Beverley (5f, good to soft) two weeks ago but he couldn't hang in there and finished a well-held third of ten; should benefit from that experience but he needs plenty of improvement upped in trip.

Form & Verdict
150,000euros yearling; has some useful sprint winners in his pedigree and he made a promising start when a keeping-on second at Doncaster (5f, soft; Battaah close third) last month; sets the standard on that form and he's open to progress on this step up in trip; big player.

Placed in all three starts over 5f/6f on turf last year but didn't really progress; returns from ten months off having been gelded in the meantime, but he is a half brother to the Listed turf winner Royal Aclaim who also won on Tapeta, so he may improve for the different surface.

Placed in two of his six starts on turf last year, including when third of seven on his final start at Windsor (1m, good) in October; makes his AW debut in first-time cheekpieces after five months off (gelded in the meantime) and the market should reveal more.

Form & Verdict
Finished fourth of five when a market springer here (5f, soft; 17-2) two weeks ago but he looked inexperienced and shaped with some promise behind a useful stablemate in that race; should know much more on this step up in trip and he's a likely improver on his second start.
