          In depth


          Biometric made a successful start at Salisbury and there should be more to come but he won’t find this easy under a penalty. Red Armada showed promise in all three starts as a juvenile and should be winning soon but we’ll give another chance to the well-bred Kingman filly POSTED. Second over 6f here on debut, she was prominent for a long way in a Class 2 event over track and trip on her final start last year and in between finished runner-up at Newmarket and ran in the Prestige Stakes at Goodwood. There are a number of possibilities among the newcomers including the 420,000gns yearling Majaalis, who is a brother to a Group 3 winner, and Excellent Magic. The latter is a sister to the smart Folkswood and cost 200,000gns as a yearling.
