150,000 gns yearling, Showcasing colt. Half-brother to 2-y-o 5f winners Excellently Poised and Well Done Fox. Dam, 5f winner (including at 2 yrs), half-sister to smart 6f winner Blessington.
42,000 gns foal, 65,000 gns yearling, Kyllachy gelding. Half-brother to useful 1¼m-1½m winner Rocky Bleier and 1m winner Barleycorn Lady. Market for clues.
Well held in a pair of novices, refusing to settle last time, so no surprise to see the hood enlisted.

Showed a bit when eighth of 14 in 7f novice at Kempton on debut 10 months ago. First run for yard after leaving Owen Burrows. Likely to improve.

Failed to meet expectations (green) on Lingfield AW debut for John Gosden 6 months ago but should be capable of better.
|13/03/20||Lingfield Park||4/8||Flat||1m 4f||Std||9st 5lbs||Robert Havlin||2.14|
Twice-raced maiden. 40/1 and tongue strap on for 1st time, first run since leaving Kevin Ryan when fourth of 10 in minor event at this C&D 14 days ago.
|03/09/20||Chelmsford City||4/10||Flat||1m||Slow||z||9st 2lbs||Stefano Cherchi||59.43|

The well-bred KHAALIS is likely to have derived plenty from his opening effort here a fortnight ago and can strike at the second attempt. First Target isn't bred to need this far but needs respecting on debut given his connections, with Fortune Finder next on the list.
