I compiled a small list of 2yos I am looking forward to seeing in the second half of the season. Thought I'd post them up here if that's OK.

Air Traffic (16/3 b c Dansili - Emplane)
Trainer: Henry Cecil  Owner: Khalid Abdulla

Full brother to talented but ill-fated stablemate Wingwalker, a dual 7f winner at two (including on debut); also a brother to the impressive 7f 2yo debut winner and Musidora winner Aviate, as well as a half brother to the high-class Early March, a debut winner at two over 7f who later won a Group 3 and placed at the top level as a 3yo. His trainer knows the family exceptionally well and should be able to get at least one victory out of this well bred son of Dansili this year; 7f/1m will prove to be his optimum distance.

Census (1/2 b c Cacique - Slieve)
Trainer: Richard Hannon Owner: Highclere Thoroughbred Racing (Beeswing)

He is the first foal of an unraced half sister to the very smart middle distance performer Leadership, and he is also from the first crop of Cacique. He has reportedly shaped up with any amount of promise in his work, but is also quite a backward type who is likely to need a bit of time; that said, he held an entry this Friday just gone at Newbury so it shouldn't be long before he is seen in action.

Communicator (26/1 b c Motivator - Goodie Twosues)
Trainer: Michael Bell Owner: Lady Davis

Half brother to 1m juvenile winner Funny Me (placed over 6f), out of a mare who was a debut winner over 6f at two and later won a valuable sales race over the same distance; related to smart dual purpose performers Altay and Distant Prospect. He should be able to make some sort of impact over 7f/1m this year, though he is perhaps the type who will do even better next year given his sire; reportedly goes well at home.

Corsicanrun (8/4 ch c Medicean - Castara Beach)
Trainer: Richard Fahey Owner: Mrs H Steel

Half brother to the smart but fragile Steinbeck (2yo debut winner) and the lightly raced Varenka (Listed place in Italy at two in a three race career), out of a maiden who is related to the high-class 6-7f performer Hill Hopper, dam of the top-class 6-8f performer Nannina, and also the smart but ill-fated Queen Scarlet, a debut winner over 6f as a 2yo (fourth in a Listed Race on her only other start). He has apparently shown promise in his work at home and obviously has plenty to recommend him on pedigree; hopefully he'll soon at one of the top tracks in a 7f maiden.

Deny (22/4 ch c Mr Greeley - Sulk)
Trainer: Sir Michael Stoute Owner: Highclere Thoroughbred Racing (Matilda)

He is out of a top-class racemare who won the Prix Marcel Boussac (Group 1, 1m) as a juvenile, later placing in Group 1's such as the Yorkshire Oaks and Nassau Stakes. Her broodmare career has been notable more for the fact that all her progeny to sell so far have all fetched well into six figures as yearlings, including Ibn Battuta, a $900,000 purchase who is a three time 7f winner in the UAE including at Listed level (Group 2 placed); however, she sadly died whilst being operated on to treat colic last summer. This colt fetched 150,000gns at auction and looks the type to make a smart backend 2yo over 7f/1m, his sire helping to inject some speed into his pedigree.

End Or Beginning (1/4 b c Sadler's Wells - Smart 'n Noble)
Trainer: Paul Cole Owner: Mrs Fitri Hay

Not the most obvious of 2yo types on pedigree but is out of a mare who was a very useful juvenile and has produced mostly middle distance sorts, albeit most have won as 2yos, namely Chesham Stakes winner Celtic Silence (6f winner at two) and Jockey Club Cup and John Porter winner Royal And Regal (1m winner at two). He cost 330,000gns and is highly unlikely to be seen until at the very least the 7f maidens start, though most probably will not be sighted until the 1m maidens begin, but could well be up to winning his maiden over the distance this year before progressing into a nice middle distance sort next year.

Maraheb (1/2 b c Redoute's Choice - Hureya)
Trainer: John Dunlop  Owner: Hamdan Al Maktoum

Half brother to the useful 7f/1m winner (including on debut as a 2yo) Aqmaar and 1m 1f 3yo winenr Estiqaar, out of a 1m 3yo winner who was a half sister to the yard's smart 7-10f winner Muqbil and the useful 6f-1m winner Mostaqeleh (family of Bahri and Bahhare. This colt is from a smart family, one that trainer John Dunlop knows very well; should be suited by 7f/1m this season and is by the same sire as the owner's classy juvenile Elzaam; holds an entry at Ascot this Friday.

Naqash (18/4 b c Medicean - Varenka)
Trainer: John Gosden  Owner: Hamdan Al Maktoum

He is a half brother to connections' useful dual 7f winner Meezaan, out of a 7f Listed winner who is a half sister to the high-class juvenile Steinbeck; also related to the very smart Hill Hopper, dam of the yard's top-class 8-10f performer Nannina and the useful but ill-fated 6f 2yo debut winner Queen Scarlet. This colt cost €240,000 as a yearling and should make up into a 2yo over 7f this season, just like his brother did last autumn; trainer knows the family well.

Protractor (7/2 ch c Galileo - Rebelline)
Trainer: Barry Hills  Owner: Raymond Mould

Half brother to the very smart Recharge, a 7f 2yo debut winner who was later a winner at Group 3/Listed level over a mile, as well as being Group 1 placed over 10f, and 1m 3yo winner Regalline. His dam was a winner over 10f at Group 1 level but also won a Group 3 over 7f, and she was a half sister to the high-class Quws, a winner at Group 2/3 level who won over a variety of distances ranging between 5-11f. This colt is sure to make some kind of impact this season for his top yard, though his sire does inject more stamina than is the case with his Cape Cross half brother Recharge; sure to start off at one of the top tracks in a 7f/1m maiden.

World Domination (25/3 b c Empire Maker - Reams Of Verse)
Trainer: Henry Cecil  Owner: Khalid Abdulla

Half brother to Ithaca, a debut winner over 6f at two who later placed at Listed level over 7f/1m at 2-3 (later dam of the high-class 7f/1m performer Zacinto), 6f 2yo debut winner Western Verse and the very smart 10-11f winner Many Volumes, out of a top-class performer who won the Fillies' Mile as a 2yo and then the Oaks the following year and is herself a half sister to the top-class 8-10f performer Elmaamul. This colt hails from another hugely successful family that his trainer knows all too well having trained most of the dam's successful progeny, as well as most of her relatives; this colt should make it out on the track this year; it's notable that many of these colt's siblings have either won or placed on debut, suggesting this regally-bred sort should be watched closely on debut. Has reportedly shown plenty of promise at home.

Another filly of interest entered at Bath on Thursday.

Yashila- The renowned trainer/owner combination of Hannon/Wood. Entered in all the relevant sales races. Is a half sister to the dual two year old winner Triple Two and the 100+ rated Blackat Blackitten. She is a full sister to Ashram, dual two year old winner including the Somerville Gp3.

Whilst writing does anybody have any news of Teo's Sister, Teofilo's sister. She has a Molyglare entry but nothing else I can see .

From Hannon's website. Pausanias could be interesting and runs in a maiden at Goodwood next week.

All the big names were pulled out, including Canford Cliffs, who runs in Wednesday's Sussex Stakes, Dick Turpin, who could join him, and Paco Boy, who waits for Deauville, but the magnet which seemed to draw many of the hacks was an unraced Kyllachy youngster called Pausanias, who is part-owned by Man United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and who is expected to make his debut at Goodwood.

Former jump jockey Brian Reilly rode Pausanias in his spin in between Casual Glimpse and Zebedee, and considering that he more than held his own against two classy youngsters, who are pencilled in for Group races at Goodwood next week, it was a very encouraging piece of work.

Hannon said:"Alex originally asked for the name Avatar after the film, but he got the knock-back from Weatherbys, so him and his partner, Satiricos, came up with Pausanias. He is a lovely colt who has really started to thrive this past month, and, though I was thinking of launching him at Ascot this week, Alex can't make it down and asked me if we could hang on until Goodwood on Tuesday.

Thought I'd chuck a few more in for a good measure to the original ten I put forward initially, and have also altered a few facutal mistakes! This is a cracking thread by the way - some top stuff on here already. Happy

Air Traffic (16/3 b c Dansili - Emplane)
Trainer: Henry Cecil  Owner: Khalid Abdulla

Full brother to talented but ill-fated stablemate Wingwalker, a dual 7f winner at two (including on debut); also a brother to 1m 2yo debut winner and Musidora winner Aviate, as well as a half brother to the high-class Early March, a debut winner at two over 7f who later won a Group 3 and placed at the top level as a 3yo. His trainer knows the family exceptionally well and should be able to get at least one victory out of this well bred son of Dansili this year; 7f/1m will prove to be his optimum distance.

Almagest (2/4 br c Galileo - Arabesque)
Trainer: John Gosden  Owner: Khalid Abdulla

Half brother to the yard's high-class sprinting 2yo Showcasing, the high-class 6/7f performer Camacho and the useful sprinter Bouvardia, out of a mare who was herself a smart performer over sprint distances. This colt's pedigree is a real mixture of speed and stamina, and it would be no surprise to see him need at least 7f this year; should be able to make his mark this term over that distance, and almost certain to be introduced at one of the top tracks in the coming weeks.

All Time (31/1 br f Dansili - Clepsydra)
Trainer: Henry Cecil  Owner: Khalid Abdulla

Sister to the yard's high-class 8-10f performer Passage Of Time and very smart middle distance performer Father Time, and a half sister to the smart high-class triple 1m scorer Timepiece and 10f 3yo winner Sandglass, out of a middle distance winning half sister to Lingfield Oaks Trial winner Double Crossed (later dam of the top-class Twice Over). This beautifully-bred filly is from a family very well known to her veteran trainer, who reportedly holds this filly in very high regard; no surprise to see her make some kind of impact over a mile this season.

Census (1/2 b c Cacique - Slieve)
Trainer: Richard Hannon Owner: Highclere Thoroughbred Racing (Beeswing)

He is the first foal of an unraced half sister to the very smart middle distance performer Leadership, and he is also from the first crop of Cacique. He has reportedly shaped up with any amount of promise in his work but is also said to be quite a backward type who is likely to need a bit of time; however, has held an entry already this summer so should be seen out any day now over 7f/1m.

Communicator (26/1 b c Motivator - Goodie Twosues)
Trainer: Michael Bell Owner: Lady Davis

Half brother to 1m juvenile winner Funny Me (placed over 6f), out of a mare who was a debut winner over 6f at two and later won a valuable sales race over the same distance; related to smart dual purpose performers Altay and Distant Prospect. He should be able to make some sort of impact over 7f/1m this year, though he is perhaps the type who will do even better next year given his sire; reportedly goes well at home.

Corsicanrun (8/4 ch c Medicean - Castara Beach)

He has apparently shown promise in his work at home and obviously has plenty to recommend him on pedigree; hopefully he'll soon at one of the top tracks in a 7f maiden.

Her broodmare career has been notable more for the fact that all her progeny to sell so far have all fetched well into six figures as yearlings, including Ibn Battuta, a $900,000 purchase who is a three time 7f winner in the UAE including at Listed level (Group 2 placed); however, she sadly died whilst being operated on to treat colic last summer. This colt fetched 150,000gns at auction and looks the type to make a smart backend 2yo over 7f/1m, his sire helping to inject some speed into his pedigree. Has been widely reported in the media by his owner's racing manager that he is a decent, so unlikely to represent much in the way of value when he makes his intended debut next month.

Durante Alighieri (5/3 b c Galileo - Puce)
Trainer: Henry Cecil  Owner: H E Sheikh Sultan Bin Al Khalifya Al Nahyan

Closely related to the smart middle distance performers Lion Sands and Pukka, and a half brother to the smart middle distance performer Pongee, out of a smart middle distance performer from the family of Oaks winner Alexandrova. This smartly-bred colt fetched the princely sum of 475,000gns as a yearling and is bred to be very smart over middle distances next season, but he has been showing enough in his work to suggest he may be able to make a telling impact when he unleashed onto the course this year.

End Or Beginning (1/4 b c Sadler's Wells - Smart 'n Noble)
Trainer: Paul Cole Owner: Mrs Fitri Hay

Not the most obvious of 2yo types on pedigree but is out of a mare who was a very useful juvenile and has produced mostly middle distance sorts, albeit most have won as 2yos, namely Chesham Stakes winner Celtic Silence (6f winner at two) and Jockey Club Cup and John Porter winner Royal And Regal (1m winner at two). He cost 330,000gns and is highly unlikely to be seen until at the very least the 7f maidens start, though most probably will not be sighted until the 1m maidens begin, but could well be up to winning his maiden over the distance this year before progressing into a nice middle distance sort next year.

Enjoy Today (14/3 b c Kingmambo - Queen's Logic)
Trainer: Brian Meehan Owner: Jaber Abdullah

Immediately takes the eye on pedigree being a half brother to the yard's high-class 2yo Lady Of The Desert, a 5f winner on debut who went on to win the Princess Margaret and also the Lowther before running well in the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes when third. He is out of a top-class racemare who was unbeaten in a five race career, winning the Queen Mary, Lowther and Cheveley Park Stakes at two before injury brought a premature end to her career on the eve of the 1000 Guineas, that after winning the Fred Darling Stakes. This colt has all the right attributes to make some sort of impact at two, his yard adept at getting the best out of their youngsters, and it also bodes well that two of this colt's siblings made winning debuts as 2yos; should be suited by 7f/1m this year.

Frankel (11/2 b c Galileo - Kind)
Trainer: Henry Cecil  Owner: Khalid Abdulla

Very closely related to the yard's Lingfield Derby Trial winner Bullet Train (by Sadler's Wells), also a 1m 2yo winner on debut, out of a very smart sprint performer who was a half sister to the top-class middle distance performer Powerscourt, and was out of Lancashire Oaks winner Rainbow Lake. This colt's pedigree is a real mixture of speed and stamina, but the fact he holds an entry in the Royal Lodge indicates he capable of making some kind of impact this term, perhaps even over 7f to begin with though a mile will undoubtedly prove his optimum distance this year.

Guessing (27/2 b f Kingmambo - Imagine)
Trainer: Aidan O'Brien  Owner: Mrs John Magnier/Mrs David Nagle

She 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), and she has 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). Her other three foals to date have all been high-class at least, with Kitty Matcham winner of the Group 2 Rockfel Stakes at two, Red Rock Canyon running some 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, and not far away in Classic company this season. This filly quite clearly catches the eye on breeding, and it would be something of a disappointment if she couldn't make up into a half decent performer this backend; 7f/1m will prove ideal for now.

Lordofthehouse (1/5 b c Danehill Dancer - Bordighera)
Trainer: William Haggas  Owner: Lael Stables

He is very closely related to the top-class miler George Washington (by Danehill), also fully effective over 6/7f as a 2yo, and he is a half brother to the extremely talented but equally quirky Grandera, a multiple winner over 7-11f, his most notable victories coming in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes and the Irish Champion Stakes. This colt's pedigree suggests he should be able to make some kind of impact over 7f/1m this term, though he is a late foal and may not see too much action this year; however, he worth keeping an eye out for if he does make it out on to the track in 2010.

Mohedian Lady (10/4 b f Hurricane Run - Amathia)
Trainer: Michael Bell  Owner: Olivia Hoare

This filly is a half sister to the smart 7-10f winner Distant Memories, placed over 10f at Listed level (also a 7f 2yo winner), out of a smart 9-10f winner in France who was a half sister to UAE 2000 Guineas winner Stagelight (7f 2yo debut winner in Ireland), high-class 8-12f performer Ivan Luis and 1000 Guineas third Hathrah, a 7f 2yo winner who was a Listed winner over 1m at three. This smartly-bred filly fetched 240,000gns at auction and should be up to winning at least a maiden this season, although her pedigree very much suggests middle distances will suit next year; reportedly goes well at home.

Nahrain (29/1 ch f Selkirk - Bahr)
Trainer: Michael Jarvis  Owner: Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum

Half sister to the smart 7f/1m performer Baharah, 1m 2yo winner In Dubai, 7f 2yo winner Raaeidd, 7f 3yo winner Sarrsar and dual 7f winner Naaddey, out of a high-class middle distance performer who was placed in the Oaks (also very smart as a juvenile over 7f). This filly is a smartly-bred filly who is related to a couple of decent types who have been trained to good effect by her handler; should be suited by a mile this year.

Naqash (18/4 b c Medicean - Varenka)
Trainer: John Gosden  Owner: Hamdan Al Maktoum

He is a half brother to connections' useful dual 7f winner Meezaan, out of a 7f Listed winner who is a half sister to the high-class juvenile Steinbeck; also related to the very smart Hill Hopper, dam of the yard's top-class 8-10f performer Nannina and the useful but ill-fated 6f 2yo debut winner Queen Scarlet. This colt cost €240,000 as a yearling and should make up into a 2yo over 7f this season, just like his brother did last autumn; trainer knows the family well.

Nathaniel (24/4 b c Galileo - Magnificient Style)
Trainer: John Gosden  Owner: Lady Rothschild

He is very closely related to the yard'stop-class 2yo Playful Act, winner of the May Hill and Fillies' Mile as a juvenile, later placing at the top level over middle distances; also related to high-class middle distance/staying performers Echoes In Eternity (dam of the smart UK/UAE performer Whispering Gallery) and Derby fourth Percussionist, later a useful dual purpose performer. His leading handler knows this family better than anyone, and though this colt does have a middle distance pedigree, most of his siblings have made it on to the track as a juveniles, most enjoying success; an entry in the Royal Lodge suggests he should be up to making his mark at some stage this year.

Pure Science (7/2 ch c Galileo - Rebelline)
Trainer: Barry Hills  Owner: Raymond Mould

Half brother to the very smart Recharge, a 7f 2yo debut winner who was later a winner at Group 3/Listed level over a mile, as well as being Group 1 placed over 10f, and 1m 3yo winner Regalline. His dam was a winner over 10f at Group 1 level but also won a Group 3 over 7f, and she was a half sister to the high-class Quws, a winner at Group 2/3 level who won over a variety of distances ranging between 5-11f. This colt is sure to make some kind of impact this season for his top yard, though his sire does inject more stamina than is the case with his Cape Cross half brother Recharge; sure to start off at one of the top tracks in a 7f/1m maiden.

Tanjung Agas (18/3 b c Montjeu - Najmati)
Trainer: Michael Jarvis  Owner: H R H Sultan Ahmed Shah

This colt is the second foal of a mare who failed to win in her light career but is a very well connected sort, related to high-class performers Bint Allayl, Kheleyf and Laa Rayb. He cost 250,000gns at the sales and is a well bred individual who looks the type who will appear towards the second half of the season in a 7f/1m maiden at a top track; with a top yard and his pedigree alone suggests he could be pretty smart in time, though should able to make some sort of impact at two this year. Holds Champagne/Royal Lodge entries, and no surprise to see him kick off in a 7f maiden at Newmarket (July) towards the backend on August, a race connections often target with a nice sort.

World Domination (25/3 b c Empire Maker - Reams Of Verse)
Trainer: Henry Cecil  Owner: Khalid Abdulla

Half brother to Ithaca, a debut winner over 7f at two who later placed at Listed level over 7f/1m at 2-3 (later dam of the high-class 7f/1m performer Zacinto), 6f 2yo debut winner Western Verse and the very smart 10-11f winner Many Volumes, out of a top-class performer who won the Fillies' Mile as a 2yo and then the Oaks the following year and is herself a half sister to the top-class 8-10f performer Elmaamul. This colt hails from another hugely successful family that his trainer knows all too well having trained most of the dam's successful progeny, as well as most of her relatives; this colt should make it out on the track this year; it's notable that many of these colt's siblings have either won or placed on debut, suggesting this regally-bred sort should be watched closely on debut. Has reportedly shown plenty of promise at home.

Cream as you say Almagestis a funny one. It would be interesting to know the thinking behind the breeding decision. I will try and number up his pedigree in the next few days. I see they went back to Oasis Dream in 2008( sire of Showcasing).

re Almagest, it was a slightly odd decision considering his close relation Sligo (by Sadler's Wells, out of the same mare) wasn't anything out of the ordinary for Coolmore a couple of seasons ago.

It is a strange sort of family with regards to distance - the dam (Arabesque) and her granddam (Prophecy) both fairly speedy (Prophecy was tried over 10f but didn't stay), but then the third dam is the useful middle distance performer Andaleeb, so perhaps they are looking to bring in more emphasis on stamina once again, as was/is the case with Bullet Train and Frankel of Henry Cecil's, sons of Kind (by Sadler's Wells and Galileo respectively), a sprinter who was bred for middle distances in the main (by a speed influence in Danehill, the distaff side of her pedigree having plenty of stamina in it).

Out of interest, Kind has a yearling colt by Galileo, but her foal is a colt by Oasis Dream so should be pretty quick if taking after his mother and not the vast majority of his family.

Pausaniasis declared @ Goodwood on Saturday as expected.

Factumhas two entries 1st August @ Cork 2nd August Naas.

I cannot make my mind up about Yashila @ Goodwood. One part of me says promising, the other says disappointing. Erring more to the disappointing, despite the market suggesting she wasn't expected to win.

Quite also like the look of the pedigree of another Godolphin horse - Makeynn

Dubai Destination - Pastorale....Half brother to Iffraaj so would expect to see him start over 7f towards the end of the month.

I shouldn't have missed that one Shark.

In addition to being half brother to Iffraaj, also half brother to Jathaabeh and Kareymah an unbeaten filly at two, including GP3 Snurge @ Deauville.

Full brother to Taqdeyr, 100 rated miler, won over 7f @ two.

Good info Equimine, im afraid my interest in horse racing doesnt span as far back as Jathaabeh and Kareymah but thanks for pointing them out!! Certainly has a decent family! Happy

As we have discussed I have been a little bit disappointed with the Godolphin 2yo's thus far, but hopefully some of them will progress towards the back end of the year - and hopefully they will unleash some with great potential!
