Foaled March 23. £11,000 yearling, £6,400 2-y-o, Pride of Dubai gelding. Half-brother to several winners, including useful 1m winner Barossa Red and winner up to 1¾m Restive. Dam lightly raced.
Foaled April 12. €19,000 yearling, €35,400 2-y-o, Holy Roman Emperor colt. Closely related to 7f winner Croara and half-brother to 2-y-o 6f winner Achird. Interesting newcomer for in-form yard.
12/1, little impression in 6f heavy-ground Haydock novice on debut a fortnight ago.
|03/09/20||Haydock Park||8/10||Flat||6f||Heavy||9st 0lbs||Paul Hanagan||15.52|
50/1, held back by inexperience when midfield in 7f Thirsk novice on debut a fortnight ago.
|04/09/20||Thirsk||6/11||Flat||7f||Gd/sft||9st 5lbs||Rowan Scott||61.64|
Just modest form in a couple of 6f novice events in the mud. Might be one for handicaps.
|08/09/20||Catterick Bridge||5/12||Flat||5f 212y||Heavy||9st 5lbs||Jane Elliott||23.24|
|29/08/20||Redcar||6/12||Flat||5f 217y||Heavy||9st 5lbs||Royston Ffrench||28.9|
Held in a couple of novice events a fortnight apart and probably more one for handicaps.

|27/08/20||Beverley||5/11||Flat||7f 96y||Good||9st 5lbs||K. J. Leonard||45.22|
From a good family and fetched 155,000 gns earlier this year. 4/1, shaped well in second behind another promising sort on debut at Windsor (6f) 10 days ago and will improve. Yard do very well here.
|07/09/20||Windsor||2/12||Flat||6f 12y||Good||9st 5lbs||Rossa Ryan||5.8|
Twice-raced maiden. 100/1, not knocked about and no impression when seventh of 11 in maiden at Beverley (5f, firm) 36 days ago.
|12/08/20||Beverley||7/11||Flat||5f||Firm||9st 0lbs||Jason Hart||210|
|04/08/20||Catterick Bridge||8/10||Flat||5f||Gd/frm||9st 0lbs||Jason Hart||125.47|
£26,000 yearling from family of smart sprinter Intense Romance. Easy to back and well beaten in 6f Chester novice on debut last month. Has had a wind operation.
|14/08/20||Chester||6/6||Flat||6f 17y||Good||9st 5lbs||Kieran Shoemark||10|
Well held in 6f novices at Newbury and Newcastle.
|03/09/20||Newcastle||6/9||Flat||6f||Slow||9st 0lbs||Joe Fanning||160.62|
|15/08/20||Newbury||8/9||Flat||6f||Gd/sft||9st 0lbs||Silvestre De Sousa||10.5|
Has shown plenty in 4 starts while suggesting he hasn't peaked yet. This return to 6f will suit and he has a good chance if overcoming the widest draw.
|23/08/20||Wolverhampton||4/9||Flat||5f 21y||Std||8st 13lbs||P. J. McDonald||5.7|
|04/08/20||Beverley||3/4||Flat||5f||Gd/frm||8st 11lbs||Paddy Mathers||6.32|

|07/07/20||Leicester||4/11||Flat||6f||Good||9st 5lbs||Barry McHugh||21|
Not a deep novice in the slightest and a good opportunity for SIR MAXI to make it second time lucky. He cost a fair bit earlier this year and shaped well on his recent debut at Windsor. He's sure to improve and his yard have an excellent record at Pontefract. Roydmoor is a player if overcoming the highest draw, while Emperor Supreme, also starting from out wide, is a newcomer to note.
