Quite a restricted median auction over 5f. (12th April)

The majority of these come from trainers who either struggle to win on debut or have limited appeal and best watched to assess their general level of form.

The main three are Bajan Bullet, Saucy Buck and Cape To Rio.

David Evans has got off to a flying start to the season and has representatives for just about every two-year-old race so far this season. Bajan Bullet has run well on both starts and a race of this nature must see this daughter of With Approval go close. It is slightly worrying that she is out so quickly although the apprentice will put her on good terms. It is still early days and it pays to be very careful when assessing form lines. Clearly this should equate to a drop in class and Bajan Bullet will have her supporters, however, with the race coming so soon and probably being no more than an average juvenile, there will be opposition.

Saucy Buck ran an adequate race on debut and could well improve from that initial performance. Channon's juveniles feature much better statistics on their second start and his 6th in the Brocklesby was a fair introduction. As usual, the Brocklesby is a good source of future winners and this colt by Mujadil will be primed to run today. Certainly one of the more fancied runners.

Richard Hannon has a 100% strike rate with his two-year-olds this season (two wins from two runners) and Cape To Rio isn't without a hope of making it three from three. The juveniles with form will have a big advantage as experience counts for much in this type of race. Hannon won this with Monsieur Chevalier last year and if one of their better juveniles then Bajan Bullet and Saucy Buck will have a stiff task.

The latter pair are most likely to run big races, while Cape To Rio is an interesting contender, but has to overcome inexperience.
