Promising first effort when second at Salisbury (7f, good to firm) 22 days ago, running on late. Open to improvement and should be winning soon.

Hard Spun half-brother to 7f winner Treaty of Vienna. Market support could prove significant with Ryan Moore booked for debut.
Placed on Haydock debut in June. Found the Chesham at Royal Ascot too much next time but should fare better in these calmer waters.

€210,000 Night of Thunder colt. Dam 10.5f-12.4f (Prix de Royallieu) winner. Another newcomer who would enter the reckoning if the betting suggests he's fancied.
€145,000 yearling, Dark Angel colt. Half-brother to 6f winner Esprit Rose. Dam, 6f/7f winner, half-sister to smart 6f winner Henrik. Yard also runs Clarendon Cross. Betting should guide.
Proconsul filly. Closely related to 11f winner Razza d'Arcadia. Stable can ready them and worth keeping an eye on in the market.
Some good stables represented in an interesting opener. SOFT WHISPER shaped nicely on her Salisbury debut 3 weeks ago and gets the nod but Clarendon Cross isn't too far behind her on his debut effort, while market support for one or more of the newcomers would bring them into the reckoning.
