Most of the newcomers share a similar profile with a couple of winning relatives and entries in the valuable sales races. However, RHAMNUS can boast former stablemate and German 1000 Guineas heroine Penny's Gift among his close relations and Richard Hannon's colt gets a speculative vote on that basis. Becky Lou is a half-sister to a winner in America while Jontleman and Senafe are others to note in the betting. Fortinbrass makes most appeal of those with experience on last month's Windsor fourth with Bentleysoysterboy and Excel Yourself looking next best.
