Promising sort. Evens, second of 7 in minor event at Newcastle (10.2f) 37 days ago. Back down in trip. Obvious claims if taking to fibresand.

|16/02/21||Newcastle||2/8||Flat||1m 5y||Slow||8st 9lbs||Ben Curtis||8|
Promising sort. Fifth of 11 in minor event at York (7.9f, soft, 18/1) on debut. Off 6 months. Should have more to offer.

€22,000Y, resold 70,000Y: half-brother to several winners, including 6.5f-9f winner Champagne Or Water (by Captain Rio) and 1¾m winner Louisville Lip (by Orpen). Murphy an interesting jockey booking.
$50,000 yearling, £77,000 2-y-o, Dialed In filly. Dam US 6f-1m winner, half-sister to useful US 7f/1m winner Victory Nor Defeat, third in US Grade 2 9f event. Encouraging pedigree for this surface.
Twice-raced gelding. 33/1, ninth of 11 in minor event at Kempton (6f). Off 176 days. Significantly up in trip. First run for yard after leaving Louise Allan.

Once-raced gelding. Fifth of 11 in minor event at this C&D (50/1) on debut 35 days ago. Easy to look elsewhere.

Union Rags filly. Half-sister to 1m winner El Cap and minor US winner Market King, both useful. One to note in the market.
Twice-raced gelding. Second of 5 in minor event at this course (7.1f, 18/1) 42 days ago, needing stiffer test. Others make more appeal.
|25/02/21||Southwell||2/5||Flat||7f 14y||Std||10st 0lbs||Tom Eaves||32.95|
|02/02/21||Southwell||3/8||Flat||1m 13y||Fast||10st 0lbs||Tom Eaves||209.58|

|11/03/21||Newcastle||10/12||Flat||6f||Slow||8st 9lbs||Tom Eaves||96.17|
KEHAILAAN sets the standard after two solid efforts at Newcastle. He has to prove he handles this different surface but makes most appeal. Special Directory has a very appealing pedigree for this surface being related to US dirt performers and she could go well. Thunderclap is another interesting newcomer with Oisin Murphy booked.
