PROFILE

Basilisk is from the family of Kerali. His dam Treat Gently won five times in France and the US up to Gr.2 level. His grandam Kid Gloves is a half sister to Hasili

Disappointing on his only run at Kempton last Autumn, he misbehaved and has been gelded since. Being by Speighstown, I think a mile may prove to be his trip and there is a possibility he may be a better horse on the all-weather.I hope he will develop into an above average three year old.

It was therefore a good performance to win at Wolverhampton on his only start as a juvenile. He was to be Lady Rothschild’s final winner after she sadly passed away in January. I don’t think it was the strongest of races but he is likely to improve and to stay a mile and a half plus and we will be giving him entries in some of the better races.

PROFILE

Headman comes from Juddmonte’s family of the moment and he is from the first crop of Kingman. Headman’s dam Deliberate is a half sister to Flintshire  and the second dam Dance Routine is a full sister to Concentric the dam of Enable. Deliberate won at 3 in France and has bred three winners from four runners.

A big imposing colt with a lovely action, he looked very impressive when winning on his debut at Newcastle in early November. He couldn’t have won any easier and the runner-up is rated 85. We took a view afterwards that if he was going to be a Guineas horse he needed to have another run for experience purposes, plus he ought to be good enough to cope with a drop back to seven furlongs. While I was disappointed at the time when he finished second, his wide draw didn’t help, the winner was from a strong yard and he was conceding seven pounds. There is every chance he will still be given a Guineas entry but I think he is more likely to be suited by a step up to ten furlongs. He has always been a well-balanced horse and, given his size he did well to win as a two year old. He has potential.

She has a good pedigree being by Lope De Vega and from the family of Attraction, typically of her sire’s stock she is a good mover. I thought she ran well on her debut at Newmarket finishing seventh considering it was very loose ground and she met every undulation wrong. She may benefit from a step up to ten furlongs.

http://www.nickbradleyracing.co.uk/rip-van-winkle-colt

Junior Rip was Nick’s stand out of the whole Orby sale. A gorgeous, strong colt with great movement he has everything you would want to see physically when buying a yearling. From a proven dam line, he is a half brother to Ventura Storm who was runner up in the 2016 St Leger, a Group 1 winner in Italy and has since gone on to become a leading performer in Australia.

By Rip Van Winkle (sire of our highly progressive star filly Cribbs Causeway) who was a three times Group 1 winner and whilst he is not the most fashionable sire on the market at present, he can certainly produce winners in the higher grades and without doubt if our colt had been by a sire who’s progeny are in vogue, he would have cost well into six figures. This colt has such a strong catalogue page, there is so much black type in the second dam, that there was no room for any further generations!!

A big scopey filly, she could be guided towards an Oaks trial in the spring.

He’s done well physically from two to three and he could be the sort to develop into a Britannia Stakes horse this season. Third on his debut at Salisbury, he then beat a well regarded runner of Richard Hannon’s (Beat Le Bon) at Newbury. Beaten a head at Ffos Las in August on his final start in ground that didn’t suit him. Rated 90, his mark looks fair and, while he needs to improve again, he is a good looking colt who will hopefully progress. I think a mile will be his trip.

PROFILE

Qarasu is by the successful French stallion Le Havre who stands at the Haras de Montfort and Preaux. He is from a family that has had good results in the last few years. It derives from Souk, notable members are Puce, Pongee, Prudenzia, Chicquita and Golden Sword. Another daughter Shouk is responsible for the 2006 champion filly Alexandrova, the Cheveley Park winner Magical Romance, Washington Irvine and Masterofthehorse. Bella Qatara (Dansili) ran four times in France winning at Pornichet-La Baule over 10.5 furlongs, she is out of Alexandrova.

Half-brother to Aspetar, I was pleased with his debut run at Newbury finishing a close second. He was bullied a bit and didn’t get the smoothest of runs before staying on. I thought it was therefore a good run against more experienced opponents. Like his brother and a lot of his sire’s progeny, he seems to enjoy slow ground. We will look for a novice over a mile or ten furlongs in the spring.

PROFILE

Red Impression stems from the Juddmonte foundation mare Nijinsky Star the dam of  Viviana , dam of Sightseek, Tates Creek and the lovely mare Willstar the dam of Etoile Montante.  Her dam Purissima , by the Kentucky Derby winner  Fusaichi Pegasus, has bred three winners to date.

A very promising filly and a very fast one, too. She looked good when winning on her debut at Kempton and the form has worked out well. We then took her to Lingfield and the race went perfectly with the Godolphin runner going very quickly early on and she travelled well throughout. It turned out to be a course record and she won by six lengths. I think six furlongs will be her trip but she may stay an extra furlong in time. Her first target is a new Listed races for three year old fillies over six furlongs at Chelmsford in early May. We will then find out whether the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot (21st June) is a realistic target. A strong filly, she has yet to race on the turf but she gives the impression she will be suited to fast ground.

A full-sister to September Stars and a half-brother to Teodoro, she is from a progressive family who stay well. She did well to run last season because she is a big rangy filly who ought to make a better three year old. We will start her off in a ten furlongs novice or maiden and she could be aimed at one of the fillies’ trials. She will stay a mile and a half.

Fifth on both her starts over a mile at Kempton in November, I thought her second run showed that she is crying out for middle distances as a three year old. We will hopefully find opportunities for her over a longer trip.

Skyman is from the first the Eclipse Gr.2 winner  Mukhadram  who ran up against Al Kazeem a few times in 2013.

I thought he ran well on his debut at Newbury finishing fifth but was a bit disappointing next time at Wolverhampton. He looks capable of winning races this season.

PROFILE

Tempus A half-brother to Time Test, he is potentially a nice horse who may need some cut in the ground. We purposely took our time with him last year withdrawing him at Newmarket in September because of fast ground. We let him take his chance nearly a fortnight later at Nottingham on ground which was marginal. Having travelled well and looking like winning, he got run out of it late on and was beaten narrowly. It was a pleasing run though and he starts his three year old career as a maiden. His sire did very well last year and he has the pedigree to develop into a useful horse. We will start him off over a mile but he’s bred to stay ten furlongs.

Ran respectably on his debut at Kempton before finding the ground too soft next time at Doncaster. However, he showed improved form last time when winning at Kempton in December. Rated 77, he looks a six furlongs horse who wants fast ground and we will start off in three year old handicap.
