Next part of my 3-year-olds to follow 2023

Richard Hannon makes the list even though I struggle to catch him right. 

Ballymore Vision was purchased at the 2021 October Yearling Sales by Peter & Ross Doyle Bloodstock for 120,000 gns and owned by Bernardine and Sean Mulryan. 

The Night Of Thunder colt made his debut in a Newmarket maiden last September when wearing a red hood to post, the price showed his chances that day going off a 25/1 shot. Very keen for his first start and pulled his chance away by taking the early lead, the writing was on the wall as he faded the last furlong and trailed in fifth. Hopefully he's settled down now and can make the winners enclosure this season.

My next one could be a hit or miss because the bay colt finished second from last on debut back in August. Boxing Alex is trained by David Loughnane for Amo Racing and was purchased for 190,000 gns at the 2021 October Yearling Sales. The Invincible Spirit colt is out of mare Fresh Terms who was a decent performer for Ralph Beckett winning four times including a Listed race in France. 

Boxing Alex's debut was uninspiring to say the least, the 12/1 shot was quickly away that day and up with the pace until fading a couple of furlongs out and hanging badly in a race won by 125/1 shot Oj Lifestyle, yes it's a stab in the dark but any support next timeout would make me interested as he was highly thought of by the trainer as a 2yo.

Roger Varian up next with Frankel filly Climate Friendly owned by familiar owners The Gredley Family. A half-sister to the Michael Bell trained Pretty Pollyanna who was no slouch winning the Prix Morny Group one in 2018. 

Climate Friendly made her debut in another end of season novice stakes at Newmarket, sent off 100/30 over the one mile, the lovely looking filly was pretty clueless that day and didn't seem to know what was expected of her and trailed in towards the back, another I'll be interested to see next time out and I'll be keeping a close eye on the betting. 

It's nice to see trainer Sean Woods back in the UK for his third season, he's only got a small string but one I'm looking forward to seeing is the Territories colt Dasho Lennie after an encouraging debut at Sandown last August. The bay 3yo was sent off 5/1. Dasho Lennie made nice headway a few furlongs out before being out battled in what was a blanket finish with Knockhill winning, despite finishing fourth I'm sure he has a win in him this season. A couple of runners have come out and won from that race including City Of Kings. 

First look the Owen Burrows trained Elraaeds debut looks disappointing but most of Burrows 2yos come on for the run so I'm giving this nice looking Dubawi colt another chance. Sent off pretty short that day at Ffos Las in what's described as heavy going Elraaed looked pretty professional in his work but could never land a blow and was kept up to his work at the finish to trail in fifth, not one to give up on yet. 

Thanks for reading and look out for the next part of my 3yos to follow.
