Verdict

Carlton Blue and Hajam recorded only modest debut efforts though they look the best of those to have raced. However, JALAA is a half-brother to top-class Dewhurst winner Intense Focus and Richard Hannon's 200,000gns newcomer is fancied to make a winning debut. The Godolphin debutant Stamford cost the same amount and is related to three winners while Red Avenger was purchased for 175,000gns and gets Ryan Moore on board for his first start. Santo Prince is another to note though Aseela's breeding suggests she'll be better over longer trips.
