I can't see a specific list where people give a selection of juveniles to follow on here (apologies if there is). Thought I'd get the ball rolling with a meagre 50! I must admit that I am not 100 per cent sure if the Godolphin 2yos listed are actually going to be with Mahmood Al Zarooni, but I would be hopeful that they would given the majority of them are either by Street Cry (who he enjoyed huge success with in 2011) or are related to his good 2yos from last year. Also, I am not sure whether Kew Palace is with Richard Hannon (not got my HIT 2012 yet), but the fact he's by a sprinter and that Hannon has trained a couple of the dam's recent offspring would suggest to me that he would be the most likely trainer.
Anyway, here goes:
1. A Ladies Man (17/3 b c Kyllachy - Ego) Trainer: Richard Hannon Owner: Julie Wood
(220,000gns) Half brother to useful 7f-1m winner (including on 2yo debut) Chef, multiple 7f AW winner Cut And Thrust and 7f 2yo winner Self Centred, out of a very useful dual 6f 2yo winner (placed at Listed level) who was a half sister to 6f 2yo winner/Champagne Stakes third Ghayth out of Nell Gwyn winner Pushy. This colt is bred to sprint and sold for plenty at auction, his sales price quadrupling from the 56,000gns his went for as a foal; in the right hands to make a significant impact at two over sprint distances.
2. Abated (11/5 b f Dansili - Tantina) Trainer: Roger Charlton Owner: Khalid Abdulla
Full sister to connections' very smart sprinter Bated Breath and a half sister to their high-class miler Cityscape and triple 1m 3yo winner Scuffle, out of a high-class mutiple 7f 3yo winner (including twice at Listed level) who was from the family of Xaar. This well-bred filly is of obvious interest for the season ahead, being a full sister to connections July Cup/Haydock Sprint Cup runner-up Bated Breath and a half sister to their very smart miler Cityscape, the second named able to make a significant impact at two (the former incurred an injury at two which prevented him from making onto the track until he was three); hopes must be high that this daughter of Dansili will prove capable of making some sort of impact this term, for all she is a late foal, and she could well have the speed to begin over 6f as and when.
3. Aldborough (14/4 b c Danehill Dancer - Kitty O'Shea) Trainer: Ralph Beckett Owner: Mr & Mrs David Aykroyd
Full brother to 7f 2yo winner/Moyglare Stud Stakes third Kissable and 7f 2yo debut winner Kingdom Of Munster, out of a dual 1m winner (including at Listed level) who was a full sister to Racing Post Trophy/St Leger winner Brian Boru, very smart 10-13f winner Moon Search and to the dam of Derby/Arc hero Workforce and a half sister to very smart 8-12f winner/Breeders' Cup Turf runner-up Sea Moon out of a high-class middle distance stayer. This colt is from a very good family, including Classic winners Brian Boru and Workforce, but both of his siblings did their winning over seven furlongs at two and it is unlikely this colt will prove any different; with a good stable that can get them ready first time up, this colt could well be of significant interest on debut when appearing this year.
4. Alpinist (25/4 b c New Approach - Alouette) Trainer: Jim Bolger Owner: Mrs Jackie Bolger
Closely related to smart dual 12f 3yo winner (including at Listed level) Alma Mater (by Sadler's Wells) and a half brother to dual Champion Stakes heroine Alborada, triple German Group 1 middle distance winner Albanova, useful 1m-2m winner Alanbrooke, dual 12f 3yo winner Alba Stella, dual 12f Flat/useful 2m hurdle/2m chase winner Albinus and to the dam of Derby runner-up Dragon Dancer out of a smart middle distance performer from an exceptional family. This colt is unlikely to be an early sort, but he ought to be capable of making an impact when the 7f/1m maidens start in the summer; trainer an extremely capable handler of juveniles, and surprising if this colt wasn't up to winning his maiden at the very least.
5. Ashaadd (5/4 b c Dansili - Vital Statistics) Trainer: Roger Varian Owner: Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum
(110,000gns) First foal of a smart dual 6f 2yo winner (including at Listed level) who was a half sister to useful triple 6f winner Emerald Lodge and dual 6f winners Bahia Emerald and Spiritual Peace out of a high-class sprinter who was herself the daughter of Cheveley Park winner Pass The Peace. This colt is bred to be fairly quick, his dam a precocious sort who was at her peak as a two-year-old over sprint distances, scoring at Listed level before proving disappointing later; could well be seen out once the better 6f maidens begin around mid-May (yard often start off a good one in the 6f maiden at York's Ebor meeting around that time).
6. Ashland (25/3 b c Dansili - Bonash) Trainer: John Gosden Owner: Khalid Abdulla
Full brother to twice raced dual 7f 2yo winner (including at Group 3 level) Sense Of Joy and a half brother to high-class multiple 10-13f winner (including at Group 3/Listed level) Day Flight, 10f 3yo winner Sense Of Pride and once-raced 7f 2yo winner Bionic, out of a very smart 8-12f winner (including at Group 2/3 level). This colt is from a family that his handler has had good success with in recent times, sending out full sister Sense Of Joy to make a winning debut before going on to Group 3 success next time out (career cut short by injury) and half brother Day Flight to numerous victories at Group 3/Listed level over middle distances; being a full sister to the former, one would hope that this colt will be able to make an impact this year at around 7f/1m.
7. Big Break (6/4 b f Dansili - Fame At Last) Trainer: Dermot Weld Owner: Khalid Abdulla
Full sister to the high-class and prolific 6-10f winner (including numerous times at Group 3/Listed level) Famous Name and a half sister to smart 7-10f winner (including at Listed level) Zaminast, 1m 3yo debut winner Photo Opportunity, 1m 3yo winners Everlasting Fame and Final Esteem and 6f 3yo winner Anchor Date, out of a 7f 2yo debut winner. This filly is a full sister to stable stalwart Famous Name as well as a being a half sister to connections' very smart 10f 3yo Listed winner Zaminast, both of whom made winning debuts along with the subsequently disappointing Photo Opportunity; her veteran handler clearly knows how to handle this family, and it wouldn't at all surprise to see this daughter of Dansili prove successful at the first time of asking in her chosen maiden this season; will probably appear sometime around the late summer/early autumn over 7f.
8. Buchanan (26/1 b c Dansili - Because) Trainer: Sir Henry Cecil Owner: Thomas Barr
Half brother to 1m 2yo debut/12f 3yo winner Anmar out of a maiden sister to Irish 1000 Guineas winner/Oaks second Yesterday, Moyglare Stud Stakes winner/Irish 1000 Guineas/Oaks/Irish Oaks runner-up Quarter Moon and 10f 3yo debut winner/Oaks third All My Loving out of a half sister to Last Second, Allegretto, excellent producer Alouette etc. This well-bred colt is another who is unlikely to be seen anytime soon, but he is in good hands and comes from an exceptionally successful middle distance family that his handler has already enjoyed some success with, sending out Thomas Chippendale (Dansili son of All My Loving) to win a maiden last year; will want 1m this year.
9. Cape Elizabeth (20/2 b f Invincible Spirit - Maine Lobster) Trainer: John Gosden Owner: Cheveley Park Stud
(180,000gns) Half sister to very smart 6f-1m winner (including at Group 2/3 level) Major Cadeaux, smart 7-10f winner (including at Listed level) Beachfire and modest 7-9f winner Lord Of The Dance, out of a maiden daughter of top-class US 6-10f winner Capades. This filly is very much bred to make a juvenile, likely to prove sharp enough for 6f given her classy half brother Major Cadeaux made a winning debut over that distance before finishing second in the Coventry; sire also a speed influence.
10. Cape Of Hope (27/3 b c Cape Cross - Bright Hope) Trainer: Peter Chapple-Hyam Owner: Eledy Srl
(75,000gns) Half brother to prolific (mainly at a low level) 10-14f winner Birkside, 12f 3yo winner Bright Abbey, 1m 2yo debut winner Wintercast and 7f 2yo winner Brief Candle, out of a 10f 3yo winner who was the daughter of a middle distance/staying winning half sister to Haydock Sprint Cup winner Iktamal. From a family that has served Peter Harris and family very well over the years, there is enough in this colt's pedigree to suggest he can make an impact this season; will need at least 7f, and unlikely that he will be seen until the summer, but from a good source of 2yo winners and an interesting prospect for the season ahead.
11. Cross Pattee (21/4 b f Oasis Dream - Victoria Cross) Trainer: John Gosden Owner: Anthony Oppenheimer
Half sister to high-class 8-12f winner (including twice at Group 2 level) Bronze Cannon, useful dual 7f 2yo winner Elusive Award, 7f 2yo debut winner Valiance, 12f 3yo winner Crimson Ribbon and 11f 3yo fibresand winner Bravestofthebrave, out of a 7f 3yo winner (Listed placed) who was a half sister to top-class hurdler Pridwell. This filly is from a very good family that has served this yard well in recent seasons, with Bronze Cannon, Crimson Ribbon and Valiance all winners for the stable; sire's speed influence likely to see this filly appear around the summer time, most probably over 7f; couple of her siblings have proved successful on debut, and three of them have won on polytrack whilst another won on the fibresand, so a synthetic surface should suit well.
12. Cut No Ice (29/4 gr f Verglas - Limpopo) Trainer: Paul Cole Owner: Denford Stud
Half sister to very smart 5-6f winner (including the Group 1 Haydock Sprint Cup) Pipalong, smart 6-7f winner (including at Listed level) Out Of Africa, multiple Irish/French 6f winner Raja, 6f-1m 3yo winner Pinch Of Posh, very useful 5f 2yo winner China Eyes (runner-up at Group 2 level), useful 7f 3yo winner Silver Shoon (placed at Group 3/Listed level), multiple 7f winner Nufoudh, multiple 7-12f winner Smoothie, 5-6f winner Walvis Bay, 5f 2yo winner Lesotho, 6f 2yo winner Rajab and 7f 2yo winner Corton, out of a sprint maiden. This filly is the 17th and final foal of very good producer Limpopo, and she is unsurprisingly bred to be very quick; stable have had past experience with the family and no surprise if this filly were up to making an impact almost immediately; could well be sharp enough to kick off over the minimum trip during the early throes of the new Flat season.
13. Dashing Star (28/1 b c Teofilo - Dashiba) Trainer: David Elsworth Owner: Jeff Smith
Half brother to smart 8-12f winner (including the Group 2 Lancashire Oaks) Barshiba, 1m 2yo Listed winner Doctor Dash, 8-10f winner Dashing Doc and dual 10f 3yo AW winner Westhaven, out of a useful 9-10f winner (Listed placed). This colt is a half brother to a handful of winners including connections' one-eyed but smart middle distance mare Barshiba and also Listed winner Doctor Dash, out of a useful mare for them; pedigree suggests he will find 7f fine to begin with, and it would be disappointing if this nicely bred couldn't break his maiden before the year is out.
14. Desert Command (17/2 b c Oasis Dream - Speed Cop) Trainer: Andrew Balding Owner: Jeff Smith
Full brother to very useful dual 6f winner Desert Law and a half brother to 6f 2yo winner Top Cop, out of a high-class triple 5f winner (including at Listed level) who was a half sister to very useful triple 5f winner Siren's Gift, 6f 3yo winner Indiana Blues and 7f 2yo winner King's Siren out of high-class sprinter/disqualified Nunthorpe winner Blue Siren. This colt is from a family that has served connections very well over the years and he is bred to excel at sprint distances, both of his siblings to have raced to date both scoring at two over 6f (both finished second on debut); sure to prove capable of making a major impact this year, and possibly one to catch on debut.
15. Enthusiasm (25/3 b f Dansili - High Praise) Trainer: John Gosden Owner: Khalid Abdulla
Half sister to 10f 3yo debut winner Eagles Peak, 11f 3yo debut winner Sight Unseen and 12f 3yo debut winner Critical Acclaim, out of a very smart 7-12f winner (including at Group 2/3 level) who was a half sister to the top-class miler Observatory, very useful 8-12f winner Terrestrial, 7-10f winner Star Magnitude and to the dam of multiple 7-9f (mainly AW) winner Ninth House and 7f 2yo debut winner Quartet. This filly is from a family well known to her handler, having trained the dam to Group success and her half brother, Observatory, to Group 1 glory; half sister to three 3yo debut winners at around middle distances but is herself by a speedier influence than those three and can therefore be expected to make an impact at around 7f/1m this season; likely to appear in one of the better summer maidens at Newmarket.
16. Fair Hill (30/1 b f New Approach - Speirbhean) Trainer: Jim Bolger Owner: Mrs Jackie Bolger
Three parts sister to connections' top-class 2yo Teofilo, useful 10f 3yo winner Senora Galilei and 7f 3yo debut winner Teo's Sister (all by Galileo), out of a 1m 3yo Listed winner who was a half sister to high-class multiple 9-14f Flat (including at Listed level)/bumper winner Graduated. This filly is closely related to connections' Dewhurst winner Teofilo, being a daughter of their 2000 Guineas/Derby winner New Approach (by Galileo) and out of a mare that served them well in her racing days; this filly is almost certain to be seen in one of the better 7f fillies' maidens at either the Curragh or Leopardstown from the summer onwards.
17. Falsafa (14/3 b f Dansili - Hureya) Trainer: John Gosden Owner: Hamdan Al Maktoum
Half sister to the smart 7f winner (including at Group 3 level) Muthabara, triple UK/UAE 1m winner Maraheb, 7f-1m winner Aqmaar and 1m 1f 3yo winner Estiqaar, out of a 1m 3yo winner who was a half sister to the smart 7-10f winner Muqbil and very useful 6-7f winner Mostaqeleh, family of top-class miler Bahri and very smart juvenile Bahhare. This filly is a half sister to a couple of debut winners, one of whom (Muthabara) went on to Group 3 glory; first time a member of this family has been trained by John Gosden, who can get them ready to strike first time up, so this daughter of Dansili could prove a very interesting proposition on debut; likely to start her career over 7f in the summer time.
18. Flying Officer (16/5 b c Dynaformer - Vignette) Trainer: John Gosden Owner: George Strawbridge
Full brother to connections' St Leger winner/high-class middle distance performer Lucarno and promising 2011 1m 2yo debut winner Thought Worthy and a half brother to 7f 2yo debut winner Morning Charm and multiple US sprint winner Minute Of Fame, out of a high-class UK/US 6f winner who was a half sister to several winners including smart milers Be Elusive and On A Cloud. This son of Dynaformer is clearly of significant interest given he is a full brother to Leger winner/Derby fourth Lucarno and also 1m 2yo debut winner Thought Worthy, whilst half sister Morning Charm won on her only start at two over 7f; unlikely to be seen until the backend of the season (also a late foal), but most certainly one to keep an eye out for when appearing given the success rate of his siblings first time out.
19. Haverstock (15/3 b c New Approach - Endorsement) Trainer: Mark Johnston Owner: Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum
(110,000gns) Three parts brother to dual 12f 3yo Flat/2m 6f-3m hurdle winner Galient (by Galileo), closely related to very smart middle distance performer Mores Wells (by Sadler's Wells) and a half brother to 7f 2yo winner Road Rage, out of a Queen's Vase winner who was a half sister to 1m 2yo debut winner Dakar Rally, excellent family of Indian Haven, Hala Bek, Imperial Stride, Daggers Drawn, Kite Wood etc. This smartly bred colt appeals as the type to make an impact in 1m maidens towards the backend of the season, very much bred to want middle distances but related to a handful that were able to make some sort of impact at two; stable has its fair share of debut winners in the autumn, and no surprise if this colt were to be another.
20. Huntsmans Close (20/4 b c Elusive Quality - Badminton) Trainer: Michael Bell Owner: Sheikh Marwan Al Maktoum
Half brother to 7f 3yo AW debut winner Burghley out of a smart 6-7f winner (including at Listed level)/Cheveley Park third who was a half sister to the very useful 6-7f winner Cala, useful miler Badalona, 7f-1m winner Rafferty and 7f 2yo winner Fox. This son of Elusive Quality is from a family that has served his owner/breeder very well in recent times, the dam a 6f 2yo debut winner who was placed at Group 1 level later on; half brother made a winning debut at three for these connections, and hopes must be high that this colt can make a similar impact, albeit at an earlier stage; ought to have the speed to start out over six furlongs.
21. Hypnotism (21/3 ch c Pivotal - Hypnotize) Trainer: Sir Mark Prescott Owner: Cheveley Park Stud
Full brother to 6f 2yo debut winner Hip and a half brother to connections' Cheveley Park winner Hooray (also a 6f 2yo debut winner), 7f-1m winner (including at Listed level at two) Hypnotic, dual 7f 3yo winner Macedon and 1m 2yo debut winner Notorize, out of a smart dual 7f 2yo winner (including at Listed level) who was a half sister to Cherry Hinton winner/1000 Guineas third Dazzle. This colt is very much bred to come into his own at two over 6/7f, and the fact that his full sister made a winning debut and half sister Hooray did the same (for this yard) before going on to land the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes suggests this colt shouldn't take long in getting off the mark, particularly if debuting at one of the lesser tracks.
22. Intrinsic (2/4 b c Oasis Dream - Infallible) Trainer: Sir Michael Stoute Owner: Cheveley Park Stud
First foal of a 7f 2yo debut/Nell Gwyn winner/1000 Guineas fourth who was a full sister to useful dual 7f winner Thrill and 7f 2yo fibresand winner New Decade and closely related to fairly useful 7f-1m winner Chilled out of a high-class 5-6f winner (including at Listed level). This colt is of obvious interest given that he is the first foal of Nell Gwyn winner/1000 Guineas fourth Infallible, herself a full sister to useful dual 7f winner Thrill and a half sister to 7f-1m winner Chilled; bred for speed and unlikely to stay further than 7f; interesting that this colt has ended up with Sir Michael Stoute rather than John Gosden, who trained both the dam and her smartest relation to date.
23. Jumaira Tower (3/5 b c Dubawi - Jumaireyah) Trainer: Luca Cumani Owner: Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum
Full brother to connections' high-class 8-10f winner (including at Listed level) Afsare and a half brother to prolific 12-14f Flat/2m hurdle winner Trip The Light, useful 9-10f 3yo winner Reem Three (later dam of useful 7-12f winner Naqshabban) and 12f 3yo winner Qahriman, out of a useful 8-10f winner who was a half sister to several winners including smart middle distance stayer Lost Soldier Three. This colt hails from a family that his astute handler knows extremely well, and although it is unlikely the very best of this colt will be seen this term, he could well be worth keeping an eye out for in the latter stages of the season; will want a 1m but could well prove effective over 7f.
24. Kew Palace (26/3 ch c Kheleyf - New Assembly) Trainer: Richard Hannon Owner: The Queen
Closely related to 10f 3yo winner Regents Park (by Green Desert) and a half brother to dual 6f winner (including on 2yo debut) Instalment, UK/US 7-9f winner Victoria Reel and 1m 3yo winner Small Fortune, out of a useful 9-10f 3yo winner who was a half sister to the very smart 7-9f winner (including at Group 1 level in the UAE) Right Approach and very useful 14f-2m winner Temple Way. This colt is from one of the speedier royal bloodlines, his half brother Instalment (by Cape Cross) able to make a winning debut over 6f at two (another half brother, General Synod, finished runner-up on debut over 7f); ought to be the most precocious of the dam's produce yet, being as he is a son of Kheleyf, and he is very much in the right hands to make an impact early on if coming to hand quickly.
25. Knight Owl (20/3 b c Invincible Spirit - Miss Invanhoe) Trainer: James Fanshawe Owner: Annabelle Condon
(155,000gns) Second foal of a smart 7f-1m winner (including at Listed level) who was a half sister to multiple 8-10f winner (mainly AW) Rebellious Spirit, 1m 3yo winner Be Decisive and useful 7f 2yo winners Decision Maid and Trojan Princess out of a multiple 7-9f US winner who was a full sister to smart 6f-1m winner Palana and a close relation of very useful 6-7f winner Grangeville. Sold for plenty at auction and comes from a successful family, most of whom proved effective around a mile; stable take a patient approach with its youngsters, so it's unlikely this colt will be seen anytime soon; however, it wouldn't at all surprise to see this son of Invincible Spirit prove capable of winning his maiden at some stage this season, almost certain to start out over 7f.
26. Make The News (18/4 b c Montjeu - Market Slide) Trainer: Dermot Weld Owner: Moyglare Stud Farm
Three parts brother to top-class 7-10f winner (including the 2000 Guineas and Eclipse Stakes) Refuse To Bend, very useful Irish/Qatari 7f-1m winner Domestic Fund (placed at Group 2 level), and 12f 3yo winner Ripple Of Pride (all by Sadler's Wells), closely related to useful dual 12f 3yo winner/Listed Race runner-up Notable Graduate (by Galileo) and a half brother to Melbourne Cup winner Media Puzzle, out of a useful dual 6f winner who was a half sister to very useful Irish 7f-1m/top-class 8-9f US winner Twilight Agenda. This smartly bred is from a family that has served these connections superbly well over the years, with close relation Refuse To Bend winning the 2000 Guineas and half brother to Melbourne Cup hero Media Puzzle; has the pedigree to do better over middle distances at three, but he is related to several that were able to win at least their maiden at two and no surprise to see this colt follow suit; likely to need 1m straight away.
27. Mooqtra (5/4 b c Invasor - Sayedat Alhadh) Trainer: Kevin Prendergast Owner: Hamdan Al Maktoum
Half brother to connections' high-class 6-7f winners Haatef (including at Group 2/Listed level) and Walayef (including at Group 3/Listed level), smart multiple 6f winner (including at Listed level) Ulfah and smart dual 6f 2yo winner (including at Listed level) Shimah, out of a 7f winner in the US who was the daughter of Princess Margaret winner Muhbubh. This colt is a half brother to a trio of debut winners (all for this stable) and is bred to make his mark at two, although he is by a first season sire who was best at up to 10f (top-class dirt performer), so it could well be that 7f will be needed straight away; clearly going to be of great interest on debut.
28. Noor Al Watan (8/5 b c Raven's Pass - Shy Lady) Trainer: John Oxx Owner: Jaber Abdullah
Half brother to very smart 2yo/top-class miler Zafeen, smart 6-7f winner (including at Listed level) Atlantic Sport, smart 6-7f 2yo winner (including at Group 3 level) Ya Hajar, useful Irish/UAE 7f-1m AW winner Youm Mutamiez, dual Irish/UAE 7f AW winner Fantastic Dubai 1m 2yo winner/2000 Guineas sixth Happy Today and 1m 2yo winner Akeed Wafi, out of a smart sprinter from the family of high-class speedster Diffident. This colt is out of a mare who has produced a handful of at least smart performers, most notably St James's Palace winner/2000 Guineas runner up Zafeen; a couple of others have made winning debuts, whilst one or two others have got off the mark at the second time of asking; in excellent hands, and surprising if this son of Raven's Pass couldn't end 2012 with at least one win to his name.
29. Pedro The Great (27/3 b c Henrythenavigator - Glatisant) Trainer: Aidan O'Brien Owner: Michael Tabor
(150,000gns) Half brother to high-class 6-7f 2yo (including at Group 3 level)/2000 Guineas winner Footstepsinthesand, 6f 2yo winner Frappe (later dam of top-class 6-7f 2yo winner Power and Ribblesdale winner Thakafaat) and 12f-2m Flat/bumper winner Theme Song, out of a temperamental but smart 6-7f 2yo winner (including at Group 3 level) who was a half sister to smart middle distance stayer Rockerlong and the dam of very smart sprinter Superstar Leo. This colt is a half brother to connections' 2000 Guineas winner Footstepsinthesand and to the dam of their 2011 Group 1 winning 2yo Power, but the dam hasn't produced a whole lot else; however, it seems as though connections have an eye for spotting talent from the family and this colt sold for a decent sum at auction; could well have the speed to start out over 6f; very interesting prospect.
30. Piet Mondrian (5/4 gr c Danehill Dancer - Last Second) Trainer: Aidan O'Brien Owner: Michael Tabor
Three parts brother to French 2000 Guineas winner Aussie Rules (by Danehill) and a half brother to high-class 7-10f winner (including at Listed level) Approach (later dam of smart middle distance colt Midas Touch), 1m 2yo winner/smart middle distance performer Intrigued and 10f 3yo winners Bold Glance and Timeline, out of a Nassau/Sun Chariot winner who was from the exceptional family of Alborada, Quarter Moon/Yesterday, Alleluia etc. This beautifully bred colt appeals as the type to do particularly well as a juvenile, being that his three parts brother was a debut winner over 7f who later won a Group 3 over the same distance; likely to be seen out in one of the better 7f maidens in Ireland.
31. Pivotal Movement (16/1 ch c Pivotal - Selinka) Trainer: Richard Hannon Owner: Sir Alex Ferguson, Ged Mason, Ronnie Wood, Peter Done
(280,000gns) First foal of a high-class 6f-1m winner (including twice at Listed level) who was a half sister to 7f 2yo winner Swanky Lady out of a smart triple 6f winner (including at Listed level) who was the daughter of a half sister to high-class sprinters Bold Edge and Brave Edge. This colt cost a small fortune at auction and clearly took the eye, but he also makes plenty of appeal on pedigree; looks the type to make up into a 2yo, bred mainly for speed though likely to stay 7f; intriguing prospect for his top juvenile yard.
32. Point Of Control (29/1 b f Pivotal - Finlaggan) Trainer: Michael Bell Owner: Lawrie Inman
(250,000gns) Full sister to high-class UK/US 5-9f winner (including at Grade/Group 3/Listed level) Needwood Blade and 1m 3yo debut winner Summers Lease and a half sister to smart 9-10f winner (including at Listed level) Australian Dreams, useful UK 6-7f 2yo/US 1m Grade 3 winner Islay Mist, 1m winners Feolin and Flashing Blade and 8-12f Flat/dual 2m hurdle/2m 2f chase winner Merveilles, out of an 11f-2m winner. This costly purchase is bred to make her mark as a two-year-old, and there is a good chance she will be up to showing her true colours almost immediately, being related to a few first time out winners; regardless of whether or not she wins on debut, this well-related daughter of Pivotal ought to prove capable of winning her maiden at the very least this year.
33. Qawaafy (1/3 b f Street Cry - Eswarah) Trainer: Roger Varian Owner: Hamdan Al Maktoum
Half sister to connections' 7f 2yo winner/Fillies' Mile third Firdaws out of an Oaks winner who was a half sister to the smart 7f-1m winner/Irish 1000 Guineas third Umniyatee, smart 9-12f winner (including at Group 3 level) Itnab, very useful multiple 6f winner Haafiz, triple 1m 3yo winner Shumookh, very useful 10f 3yo winner Ghaidaa and multiple 11f-2m Flat/prolific 2m-2m 5f hurdle/2m-3m 4f chase winner Fatehalkhair out of 1000 Guineas/Oaks winner Midway Lady. From a family that this yard know extremely well, this daughter of Street Cry very much appeals as the type to make an impact over 7f/1m this term; her promising year older half sister went close on debut and, given the sire's excellent record with winning newcomers last year, it is easy to see this filly going one better first time out.
34. Richard Senior (7/4 b c Cape Cross - Sabria) Trainer: Richard Hannon Owner: Andrew Tinkler
(160,000gns) Half brother to ill-fated Coventry/French 2000 Guineas winner Landseer, smart 8-10f winner (including at Listed level) Ikhtyar, modest triple 11f winner Credential, 1m 1f 3yo winner Maurice Utrillo and 10f 3yo winners Sabreon and Song Of Hiawatha, out of an unraced half sister to very useful 8-12f winner King Sound (placed at Group 3 level), family of Generous, Imagine and Triptych. This colt is another juvenile from the Hannon yard that commanded a sizeable fee at auction, and he appeals as the type to make up into a useful juvenile peformer, by a miler and a half brother to Coventry winner Landseer; could well start at 6f if he shows enough early to suggest he is Coventry material, but more than likely that this son of Cape Cross will kick off his career over seven furlongs.
35. Saadatt (20/3 b f New Approach - Ameerat) Trainer: Roger Varian Owner: Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum
Half sister to 1m 2yo debut winners Oojooba and Sowaylm and 7f 3yo winners Kawssaj and Own Boss, out of a top-class 7f-1m winner (including the 1000 Guineas) who was a full sister to 1m 3yo winner Taakeed and a half sister to prolific 1m UAE winner Walmooh out of a fairly useful 8-12f winner. Obviously an interesting prospect for the season ahead, being a daughter of the yard's 1000 Guineas winner Ameerat; not produced anything out of the ordinary quite yet, but two of her foals have won on debut (including Oojooba, successful over 1m last autumn for these connections) and this filly could well follow suit at some stage in the second half of the season; should prove capable of striking over 7f but likely to be better suited by 1m eventually.
36. Sharaarah (26/2 b f Oasis Dream - Nidhaal) Trainer: Ed Dunlop Owner: Hamdan Al Maktoum
Full sister to fair 5-6f 2yo AW winner Sadafiya and a half sister to smart 5f 2yo winner Burwaaz (placed at Group 2/3 level), out of a smart 6f 2yo winner (including at Listed level) for these connections who was a half sister to multiple middle distance winner/2m 1f-2m 2f hurdle scorer Maslak out of a 6f 2yo winner from the family of top-class middle distance performers Assert, Bikala and Eurobird. This filly is bred to be a speedy juvenile, both of her siblings precocious sorts for connections, including last season's smart sprinting juvenile Burwaaz; unlikely to be any different herself, and can be expected to start out in a 5/6f within the first few months of the season.
37. Silca's Dream (3/5 b c Oasis Dream - Silca-Cisa) Trainer: Mick Channon Owner: Aldridge Racing Partnership
Half sister to the very smart dual 6f 2yo winner (including the Group 1 Prix Morny) Silca's Sister, high-class 5-9f winner (including at Group 2/3 level) Golden Silca, smart multiple 5-6f winner (including three times at Listed level) Green Manalishi, 6f 2yo winner/Moyglare Stud Stakes runner-up Silca Chiave and dual 6f 2yo winner Silca Legend, out of a very useful dual 5f 2yo winner (placed at Listed level). This filly is very much bred to make her mark at two over sprint distances, and she is from a family that has served these connections with distinction down the years; trainer seemingly gets the best out of this family, and this daughter of Oasis Dream is likely to be seen in one of the better 6f fillies' maidens during the summer (perhaps at Ascot's King George meeting in July).
38. Strawberry Jam (30/3 b c Duke Of Marmalade - Farfala) Trainer: Paul Cole Owner: Ben & Sir Martyn Arbib
Half brother to smart 8-10f winner (including at Listed level) Under The Rainbow, dual 12f 3yo winner/Park Hill runner-up Starfala, modest 5f winner Mujma and 1m 2yo winners Speightstown and Swingland, out of a smart middle distance performer who was a half sister to very smart middle distance performers Alpine Rose, Fracassant, Fragrant Mix, Fascinating Mix and Fraloga. This colt is going to be need middle distances to be seen at his very best eventually, but most of his relations to have raced to date have proved capable of making their mark at two; likely to need 1m this term, but no surprise to see this son of first season sire Duke Of Marmalade chalk up a maiden win at the very least for a stable that know the family very well.
39. Superoo (7/4 ch c Bahamian Bounty - Roo) Trainer: Mark Johnston Owner: Mel Pilkington
(40,000gns) Full brother to one-time useful 6-7f winner Gallagher (placed at Group 2 level at two) and a half brother to useful 5-7f winner Roodeye (Listed placed), useful UK/UAE 7-10f winner Quick Wit, multiple 6-7f winner Averoo, 6f 2yo debut winner Cockney Dancer and 7-10f Flat (including on debut)/2m hurdle winner Roodolph, out of a 5-6f 2yo winner who was a half sister to Gimcrack winner Bannister. This colt's pedigree strongly suggests he will prove up to winning a maiden at the very least this year, with two of his siblings making winning debuts as youngsters while several others either went close first time out or won on their second start; will probably be kept to sprint distances this season.
40. Tally Stick (23/1 b c Street Cry - Echoes In Eternity) Trainer: Mahmood Al Zarooni Owner: Godolphin
Half brother to smart 9f-2m winner (including at Group 3/Listed level) Whispering Gallery and 10f 3yo debut winner Eavesdropper, out of a high-class 8-14f winner (including twice at Group 2 level) who was a half sister to King George winner Nathaniel, Fillies' Mile/very smart middle distance performer Playful Act, Yorkshire Cup winner/Derby fourth Percussionist and very smart US 10-11f winner (including twice at Grade 3 level) Changing Skies as well as a couple of others. This colt is from a fine middle distance family that includes last year's King George hero Nathaniel, whilst both of his siblings to have raced failed to make it to the track at two and stayed well in time; however, his sire showed time and time again last year that, even when paired with stoutly bred mares, his progeny were capable of making winning debuts at around 7f/1m; could well prove capable of making an impact at some stage towards the backend of the season in a 1m maiden.
41. Tassel (4/2 b f Kyllachy - Xtrasensory) Trainer: Richard Hannon Owner: Highclere Thoroughbred Racing - Herbert Jones
(£42,000) Half sister to modest 7f-1m winner Redsensor, 5-6f 2yo winner Tishtar and 6f 2yo winners Fenella Rose and Responsive (useful), out of a 6f 2yo debut winner who was a half sister to fairly useful 5-7f winner Song Of Skye, 7f-1m 3yo AW winner Kingdom Princess and 5-6f winner Miriam out of a daughter of smart sprinter Penny Blessing. This filly is bred to be speedy and precocious and is certainly in the right hands to realise her full potential at two; will most likely prove capable of starting off over 5f around May/June, and a debut victory in her chosen maiden could well lead to an appearance at Royal Ascot.
42. Taxonomy (25/2 ch c Pivotal - Suez) Trainer: Mahmood Al Zarooni Owner: Godolphin
Half brother to connections' unbeaten and top-class 7f-1m 2yo winner (including the Group 1 Fillies' Mile) Lyric Of Light out of a smart dual 6f 2yo winner (including at Listed level)/Cheveley Park runner-up ho was a half sister to smart New Zealand miler Polish Princess out of a maiden half sister to the very smart 9-10f winner (including the Group 1 Irish Champion Stakes) Cezanne, Irish Oaks winner Colorspin (later dam of top-class stayer Kayf Tara, very smart middle distance performer Opera House and Prix de l'Opera winner Zee Zee Top), very smart 7-10f winner Bella Colora (later of high-class duo Mullins Bay and Stagecraft) and to several other winners out of a high-class middle distance performer. This colt hails from a very successful family, and year older half sister Lyric Of Light continued that success when winning the May Hill and Fillies' Mile last term following on from a winning debut; wouldn't be at all surprising to this son of Pivotal prove quick sharp to debut over 6f, his sire a top-class sprinter and the dam a dual 6f winning Cheveley Park second.
43. Wallenberg (17/3 b c Rock Of Gibraltar - Waldmark) Trainer: John Gosden Owner: Newsells Park Stud & Rachel Hood
(85,000gns) Half brother to 1m 2yo debut/St Leger winner Masked Marvel and 10f winners Gifted Icon and Sadler's Mark, out of a 7f 2yo debut winner (later placed at Group 2/Listed level) who was a half sister to German Derby winner Waldpark and very useful 8-15f Flat (including at Listed level)/2m hurdle winner Waldvogel out of a German Leger winner. This colt is of obvious interest given the exploits of his year older half brother last season, ending his three-year-old campaign by capturing the St Leger for this stable; this colt will probably want middle distances in time, but both his dam and classy sibling were able to make winning debuts and, being a son of a top-class miler, this colt should prove capable of making some sort of impact at two at around 7f/1m.
44. Winterlude (17/3 b c Street Cry - New Morning) Trainer: Mahmood Al Zarooni Owner: Godolphin
Full brother to very promising 2011 7f 2yo debut winner Mighty Ambition and a half brother to useful 8-12f 3yo winner Sadeek's Song out of a high-class 10-12f winner (including at Group 3 level) who was a full sister to the top-class 10-12f winner Islington, very smart 10-11f winner Greek Dance, smart 10-13f winner/Gold Cup third Election Day and very useful triple 10f winner Greek Well and a half sister to the very smart 10-12f winner Mountain High, useful 7f-1m winner Desert Beauty and 12f-2m 1f Flat/triple 2m hurdle winner Praxiteles out of Yorkshire Oaks winner/Leger runner-up Hellenic, excellent family. This colt hails from an excellent middle distance family, but his sire enjoyed a hugely successful 2011 with his 2yos including with several winning on debut (mainly from this stable); interesting to see whether this colt can make the same kind of impact in his juvenile campaign.
45. Unnamed (18/3 b c Danehill Dancer - Anna Pallida) Trainer: Roger Varian Owner: H R H Sultan Ahmed Shah
(400,000gns) Half brother to smart 5-7f 2yo winner (including at Listed level) Pimpernel (Group 2 placed) out of a 10f 3yo winner who was a half sister to very smart 6-10f winner (including at Group 1 level in Hong Kong)/Derby runner-up Eagle Mountain and Prix Marcel Boussac winner/very smart middle distance stayer Sulk. This colt cost a packet at auction but with good reason, for he is a half brother to last season's smart juvenile Pimpernel and out of a half sister to Group 1 winners Eagle Mountain and Sulk; year older sister by Invincible Spirit won over 5f, but this son of Danehill Dancer likely to want six furlongs at the very least from the outset.
46. Unnamed (27/2 b c Oasis Dream - Arrive) Trainer: Sir Michael Stoute Owner: Khalid Abdulla
Full brother to high-class 6-7f winner (both at Group 3 level; placed at Group 1 level; later very smart at up to 10f in the US) Visit and 7f 2yo winner Revered and a half sister to the very smart 7-10f winner (including at Group 1 level) Promising Lead, out of a useful 10-14f 3yo winner who was a full sister to excellent producer Hasili, dam of Banks Hill, Cacique, Champs Elysses, Dansili, Heat Haze and Intercontinental. This colt hails from a fine Juddmonte bloodline, and his stable has already sent out both of his full sisters to victory, including dual Group 3 scorer Visit; difficult to pin down what his ideal distance will be, but more than likely that he will begin his career in one of the better 7f maidens this summer.
47. Unnamed (1/3 b c Kheleyf - Blue Echo) Trainer: Michael Bell Owner: Saleh Al Homaizi & Imad Al Sagar
(220,000gns) Second foal of a smart 5-6f winner (including twice at Listed level) who was a half sister to smart 7-9f winner (including twice at Listed level) Putra Pekan, dual 6f 2yo Irish winner/very smart 7-9f US winner (including at Grade 2/3 level) Sapphire Ring, lowly 5-6f winner (including on 2yo debut) Ice Age and 5f 2yo debut winner Orange And Blue, out of a 5f 3yo winner who was a half sister to smart sprinter Rich Charlie and prolific sprint winners Hout Bay and Torrent. This costly purchase is bred to make his mark at sprint distances at two, being the second foal of a 5-6f 2yo winner who was a half sister to several juvenile scorers including debut winners Orange And Blue and Sapphire Ring; could well be out fairly early, and no surprise if he were to prove himself above average.
48. Unnamed (29/1 b c Raven's Pass - Delphinus) Trainer: Roger Varian Owner: Alan Spence
(150,000gns) Half brother to high-class multiple 5f winner (including at Group 3/Listed level) Captain Gerrard, smart 7f-1m winner/2000 Guineas fifth Saturn (later a high-class middle distance performer in Hong Kong, winning at Group 3 level) and multiple 6-7f winner Glocca Morra, out of a 10f 3yo winner who was a half sister to 7f-1m winner Deserve and the daughter of Lupe Stakes winner Scimitarra, herself a half sister to top-class sprinter Double Form. This colt is only the fifth foal of his mare (retired to stud in the mid-1990's), but two of her offspring are already Group winners, most recently the smart speedster Captain Gerrard; unlikely to have the speed of that colt (who was by Oasis Dream), and is more than likely to start out over seven furlongs.
49. Unnamed (9/5 ch f Monsieur Bond - Forever Bond) Trainer: Bryan Smart Owner: Reg Bond
(£147,000) Full sister to the very smart multiple 5-6f winner Hoof It (placed at Group 1 level), high-class 5-6f winner (including at Group 3/Listed level) Ladies Are Forever and multiple 5-6f (mainly on the AW) Forever's Girl, closely related to dual 6f 2yo winner Bop It (by Misu Bond) and a half sister to multiple 6-9f winner (mainly on the AW) Chosen Forever, out of an unraced half sister to smart sprinter Ratio and useful 6-7f winner Heywood. This filly will almost certainly prove capable of making her mark at sprint distances somewhere down the line this season, for all she is a late foal; certainly in the right hands to be seen at her best at two, and a very interesting proposition for the season ahead.
50. Unnamed (16/3 b c Giant's Causeway - Imagine) Trainer: Aidan O'Brien Owner: Michael Tabor
Full brother to high-class Irish/UAE 7-10f winner (including at Group 2/Listed level) Viscount Nelson and a half sister to top-class multiple 7f 2yo winner (including the Group 1 Prix Jean Luc Lagadere) Horatio Nelson, 7f Group 3 Rockfel Stakes winner Kitty Matcham and 10f 3yo winner Red Rock Canyon, out of a top-class performer who won the Irish 1000 Guineas and Epsom Oaks and was a half sister to top-class middle distance performer Generous. This colt is related to a handful of at least smart performers, all of whom have raced for these connections and all of whom were able to make their mark as juveniles, particularly Group 1 winner Horatio Nelson; no reason why this colt should prove to be any different, and he is almost certain to debut in one of the better Irish maidens in the summer/autumn; likely to prove best over 7f this year.
In addition to Ashland, Dansili has also sired a colt of Bionic, as mentioned one of Bonash's offspring, called Demonicin training with Sir Henry. He also trained his half brother Phoenix Tower and as well as being a January foal, is also the first foal I can see sired by a non US based stallion. HRAC is notorious at taking his time with 2yos but would be surprised to see this horse able to compete in good quality 7F races at two

Thanks for the info, Sir. I would be very surprised, then, if he didn't end up in the Hannon stable. Almost every 2yo The Queen breeds with a speedy sire ends up in that yard.
Roobuck, there are so many branchs of various families throughout the Juddmonte 2yo crop this year. Sir Henry Cecil also has the first foal of Sense Of Joy (daughter of Bonash who won both her outings, including a Group 3 over 7f before injury brought a premature end to her career) by Empire Maker.

Firstly I didn't add my appreciation of the OP - must have taken quite a while to write let alone do the research.
Of course there are various strands of the Juddmonte families this year, as well as most years. Just thought looking at the Juddmonte horses with HRAC it was the one that stood out to me as a likelier 2yo and simply mentioned it as was out of a mare you mentioned.
