Hope he gets Bullet Train's half brother (c Galileo - Kind) and also Showcasing's half brother (c Galileo - Arabesque), especially the latter as he trained the dam and most of her progeny until Showcasing last year. Thanks for all your input, and good luck with Channel Squadron - really well bred type who could be a nice middle distance prospect this year.

Ballydoyle 2yos with updated reasoning.

Card Trick (15/2 b c Danehill Dancer - Juno Madonna) is a full brother to the very useful 2yo Salut D'Armour, runner up in the Queen Mary Stakes having won the Listed National Stakes (5f) beforehand. He is also a half brother to the high-class Regime, a useful 7f/1m 2yo who later was a very smart middle distance performer (Group 3 winner over 10f). This colt fetched fetched 115,000gns at the sales and looks as though he could be a reasonably precocious sort, yet still have the improvement to be a nice type next year.

Diogenes (21/4 b c Galileo - Sophisticat) is almost impossible to leave out of any list. He is the original blue blood - his dam a top-class racemare who won the Coronation Stakes as well as placing in many other top races as a juvenile and also at three; his granddam a champion US filly, winning an incredible 13 Grade 1 events, and has also produced high-class performers Grand Award, Harlington and Serena's Tune (dam of the high-class Vocalised). It is a pedigree that oozes quality, but it is a pedigree that also suggests he should be able to make his mark this year; three parts brother Encompassing (by Montjeu) managed two second places in his two outings as a 2yo and the hope is that this colt can go one step further and win on debut before living up to his illustrious pedigree.

Eskimo (25/3 b c Galileo - Dietrich) is a half brother the the speedy and smart Beauty Bright, as well as the decent Greatwallofchina, out of a mare who was very speed and smart and herself very well related, being a full sister to the top-class Chimes Of Freedom (dam of US Grade 1 winners Aldebaran and Good Journey), and is from the same family as Spinning World and Xaar. It is a lovely pedigree, and it wouldn't be surprising to see this colt win his maiden fairly early; could well have the speed to win over 6f, though 7f will probably prove a more suitable test.

Harrison's Cave (10/2 b c Galileo - Sitara) is a three parts brother to Golden Sword, who managed to win over 7f as a 2yo before winning the Chester Vase at three (also placed in the Irish Derby). His dam is from a very smart middle distance family, herself a half sister to the smart Puce (later dam of smart performers Lion Sands, Pongee and Pukka) and Shouk, dam of the top-class duo Alexandrova and Magical Romance, as well as the useful dual purpose performer Washington Irving. This colt obviously won't be an early sort, but could be worth watching out for when he does appear as he pedigree is crammed full of classy middle distance performers and should be able to win at least a maiden over 1m this year.

Humphrey Bogart (21/2 gr c Galileo - St Roch) is out of an unraced half sister to the top-class Luis Line, a Grade 1 winner in the US over 1m 1f who was also a dual Listed winner over 8-9f (2yo winner over 6f) and is related to the high-class juvenile Intimate Guest. This colt's pedigree suggests he won't be seen until the 7f maiden races begin, but there are some smart juveniles in his pedigree and it would be no surprise to see this colt manage at least one win this year.

Justification (7/3 b c Montjeu - Colorspin) fetched 550,000gns at auction but a colt of his pedigree was always going to command a six-figure price tag. He is a half brother to the top-class stayer Kayf Tara, the top-class middle distance performers Opera House and Zee Zee Top and top the dam of the top-class 2yo Necklace. It is a brilliant family from which he hails, though it strongly suggests he'll be seen at his best over middle distances next year; however, should be able to make some sort of impact towards the backend in a 7f/1m maiden and has all the right paper credentials to make a top-class performer.

Queen Of Spain (23/2 b f Holy Roman Emperor - Starlight Dreams) is of obvious interest given she is very closely related to Mastercraftsman, a top-class 2yo over 6-7f and later winner of the Irish 2000 Guineas and the St James's Palace Stakes. She is also a half sister to the useful 2yo of 2009 Famous, and given both of those notable siblings were sprint winners at two indiciates this filly should be able to make her mark sooner rather than later, whilst her sire has obviously had a good start to his career as a sire with High Award winning on the opening day of the Irish Flat season.

Rudolf Valentino (11/1 b c Oasis Dream - Maganda) will attract more interest than most given he was the sales topper at the Newmarket Tattersalls October Sales, selling for 700,000gns. He is the second foal of a 10f winner who is a half sister to the top-class middle distance performer Kutub, the smart 8-12f performer In The Limelight (1m Listed winner at three) and the useful 2yo Child Progidy, a 6f Listed winner. This costly colt has enough speed in his pedigree to suggest he will be able to make an impact when the 6f maidens start, though will undoubtedly be suited by 7f later on.

Sam Lord's Castle (30/4 b c Galileo - Tadkiyra) is a half brother to the high-class juvenile Damson, winner of the Queen Mary Stakes and the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes (also placed in the Cheveley Park Stakes; didn't train on at three). She is also a half sister to the high-class Geminiani, a debut winner at two who later won the Group 3 7f Prestige Stakes, and the useful dual purpose performer Motorway; full brother to the useful 7/9f winner Chariots Of Fire. There is enough speed in this colt's pedigree to suggest he may be able to win over 6f though it is more than likely he'll be seen at his best over 7f this year; three of his siblings made winning debuts (two as 2yos).

Unnamed (27/2 b f Kingmambo - Imagine) is out of a half sister to the top-class Generous who was herself a top-class performer on the track, winning the Irish 1000 Guineas and the English Oaks (Group 3 winner as a 2yo). She has also quickly made a name for herself at stud, her first foal the top-class but ill-fated Horatio Nelson, a 7f winner on debut who went on to win the Group 1 Prix Jean Luc Lagardere (1m) but broke down when well fancied for the Derby. Her other three foals to date have all been at least high-class, with Kitty Matcham a Group 2 winner of 7f at two, Red Rock Canyon running excellent races in defeat as a pacemaker in Group 1 company, and Viscount Nelson a high-class juvenile last year, placing at Group 2 level. This filly must have a chance of making up into a high-class performer this year looking at the achievements of her previous four siblings; 7f will prove her trip and interesting to see how early she appears.

Hi Cream of the Crop, do you mind me asking how you get such accurate information on the horses actual name from yards such as O'Briens? As all i am able to find is via searching the dam an unamed colt. An example is colorspin is still un-named according to the rp website. Many Thanks

Marco Botti has a very nice filly called Armoise (23/2 b f Sadler's Wells - Di Moi Oui), who could turn out to be smart and is one to look out for later in the season. She's half a half-sister to the useful Moi Non Plus (second in the Gr.2 Oaks D'Italia over 11f). The dam (by Warning) won several races over 9-10f, including the Gr.3 Prix Chloe and the Gr.3 Prix de la Nonette.
