Trainer David Simcock. 

''Had only two runs as 2yr old winning on her final start on heavy going which being by Lope De Vega ground will be the key to her this season. A filly bred to excel as a 3yr old by Lope De Vega (IRE) - Madame Chiang.''  CL


Trainer Aidan O’Brien. 

''Very expensive purchase as a yearling at €2.8000.000. Ran three times at two winning on her final start. Trainer has her highly entered this coming flat season in the Irish 1000 Guineas and Juddmonte Irish Oaks. Being by Galileo (IRE) - Prize Exhibit, you would expect her to excel when she steps up to 12f.'' CL


Trainer Clive Cox. 

''This could be a very nice filly who could be anything. By Showcasing - Suelita is a full sister to the smart Mill Reef winner Alkumait, the trainer does well with sprinters and this could be one of his top sprinters this season. Was thrown in a G2 race at Ascot for her second run of the season and was only beaten just over 5 lengths. Sprinting is definitely her game.'' CL


Trainer William Haggas. 

''Had sore shins early on in the season which pushed him back hence he did not appear until July then ran three times within a space of two months. Winning on his final appearance. He is by Kodiac so I think sprinting is his game. He has a big long raking stride on him. Could do well in sprint handicaps and for Shadwell Stud not to send him to the sales like a lot of their horses last season, I think he can win a couple of decent races.'' CL


Trainer Marcus Tregoning. 

''Never ran last season so could well be a dark horse to follow. He was 16hh at 2 and was still growing which could be the main reason we did not see him on the track. He has a beautiful pedigree. Sea The Stars (IRE) - Umniyah (IRE) (Shamardal (USA)) so middle distance could well be his trip. He could well be a nice horse.'' CL

6: NOBEL: 

Trainer Andrew Balding. 

''Had one run last season on the AW and that was in December winning by an easy 3 lengths. Another by Lope De Vega so I think again ground will be key to this horse. He is a gorgeous looking horse with plenty of quality. I can see 7f to a mile being his trip.'' CL


Trainer Andrew Balding. 

''A colt by Postponed (IRE) - Perfect Spirit so time will be the key to this horse as you would think being by Postponed. Ran three times last season and was learning all the time winning his final race. A fine big horse and middle distance will be his project for this coming season. He looks to have plenty of quality.'' CL


Trainer Eve Johnson Houghton 

''Only ran once last season and finished runner up in November. This horse is a fine big horse and you can see why he only ran once. He must just have had growing spells. He is by Caravaggio who was also a big strapping horse. He looks to be a lovely individual and could be one of the good ones this coming season for Eve Johnson Houghton.'' CL


Trainer Joseph O’Brien. 

''This filly looks to be a Oaks filly in the making by Australia - Repose (USA) the reports from the stable have been all positive for this horse and could do very well this season.'' CL


Trainer Aidan O’Brien. 

''Galileo (IRE) - Lillie Langtry. Full sister to seven times at G1 level and including Guineas and Oaks winner Minding. She had just one run last season finishing second to the smart Discoveries. Then was put away for the season. She has class written all over her. Again she is well entered up for the coming season and I can see her competing at the top level.'' CL
