5yo b g - Dylan Thomas ex Zarawa. Trained by Nicky Henderson.
This attractive and well-made gelding is by Arc winner Dylan Thomas and is a half-brother to a Grade 3 winner. Bardd ran well in his first race at Huntingdon, finishing second after running green under pressure. Bardd justified his trainer's faith by winning his first race of the season at Sandown, beating a well-punted and highly regarded individual. Bardd has been placed twice over hurdles this season and is now waiting for better ground before running again.
2yo b f Excelebration ex Baralinka. Trained by -.
Bubbly has been raised at Kirtlington Stud and is currently in pre-training with Darrell Scaife. It has not yet been decided where she will be trained, but we are hopeful she could become yet another successful daughter of Baralinka, who has bred four individual winners from six foals, including Listed winner Marlinka, who has already bred the Group 1 winner, Marsha. Excelebration was a champion miler that would hardly ever have been beaten if he had raced in a different era to Frankel.
2yo b f by Holy Roman Emperor ex China Tea. Trained by Roger Charlton.
Burgundy is a half-sister to hurdles winner Clemency and bumper winner Elgin. Having thrown two backward horses, China Tea was then sent to a smaller, sharper stallion in Holy Roman Emperor, and we are very happy with the result. Holy Roman Emperor's fillies tend to be of a higher quality than his colts, so we hope that this filly will impress when she enters training.
5yo b g - Duke Of Marmalade ex China Tea Trained by Alan King.
Elgin has made a smooth transition to hurdling, winning twice this season. He made a good impression when winning at Kempton on King George day, before stepping up in grade to chase home the very useful pair Neon Wolf in the Supreme Trial at Haydock and River Wylde in the Grade 2 Dovecote Novice Hurdle at Kempton. Elgin then finished seventh in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, which was another decent effort.
2yo b f Pivotal ex Affinity Trained by Sir Mark Prescott.
Harmonica is by Pivotal,who was trained by Sir Mark Prescott in Newmarket, hence we have sent this filly to the Master of Heath House. This very attractive filly has an excellent pedigree and is correct and athletic. Pivotal was bred and raced by Cheveley Park Stud and has been an exceptionally successful sire, with his list of Group One winners including Kyllachy, Somnus, Excellent Art, Sariska and Farhh.
5yo b g - Iffraaj ex Marlinka Trained by Julie Camacho.
This attractive and well-built gelding won his first three races as a juvenile when trained by Roger Charlton in 2014, before he was transferred to Julie Camacho halfway through the following season. He won his first race for his new stable at Kempton in good style before following up last summer with wins at Thirsk and Chester. Judicial has had his first run of the season already, which should set him up to start the turf season with a bang.
2yo b f Mastercraftsman ex Kalinova Trained by Julie Camacho.
Madison has been raised at Star Cottage and remains there to be trained by Julie Camacho. Madison is a half-sister to Stars Above Me (now a broodmare herself), who won a valuable Stakes race in the US when trained by Graham Motion. Being by Mastercraftsman, we expect this filly to take time to come to hand, but we know that she is in the right hands and hope she can develop into a useful filly in time.
2yo b c Cape Cross ex Marlinka. Trained by James Fanshawe.
Magistrate is a fine, big colt with a wonderful pedigree. He is a half-brother to Group 1 winner Marsha and the prolific sprinter Judicial, by the now-retired stallion, Cape Cross. Cape Cross has been a fabulously successful stallion for almost twenty years, siring the likes of Ouija Board, Sea The Stars and Golden Horn. The colt has joined James Fanshawe in Newmarket, who has done so well for the Club in the past with the likes of Soviet Song, Dandino and Ribbons.
Man Of Harlech
6yo b g - Dansili ex Ffestiniog Trained by Andrew Balding.
Man Of Harlech is a really useful handicapper that has taken the Club to some exciting places. He has finished fourth in a Cambridgeshire, fourth on All-Weather Championship day and fifth in the Lincoln. He loves soft ground and a fast-run race, and was last seen when finishing mid-division in the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot. Since then he has been recovering from a foot problem, but we hope he will make a return to the track at some stage this year.
3yo b f - Excelebration ex Marlinka Trained by Julie Camacho.
Marseille has always looked like a backward sort, unlike siblings Judicial and the Group 1-winning Marsha. She has been nurtured over time by Julie Camacho, who was delighted with her recent mid-division finish on debut at Newcastle. She showed instant progression by finishing runner-up in her next race when dropped back to five furlongs, so it is hoped it will not be long before Marseille follows in her illustrious family footsteps.
4yo b f - Acclamation ex Marlinka Trained by Sir Mark Prescott.
After the sale of Ribbons, our last Group 1 winner, Marsha has really stepped up to fill her boots. Marsha was Listed-placed as a juvenile, but last season she really came to the fore. She won two Listed races earlier in the season before surpassing our wildest dreams to win the Group 1 Prix de l'Abbaye on Arc day at Chantilly, providing many visiting Members with a day they will always remember. Marsha is now being rested ahead of a hopefully fruitful four-year-old campaign, where we hope she will contest all the leading five-furlong races.
3yo b f - Speightstown ex Soviet Song Trained by James Fanshawe.
In 2015, Roubles came over from Oak Lodge Stud in America, looking quite small and neat. She grew and strengthened during her summer at Kirtlington Stud, and has developed into an athletic-looking filly. Roubles has been taken steadily by James Fanshawe, as she has had a few little niggles through the summer, before being turned out to allow her to grow on. James is hopeful that our patience will be repaid this season with Soviet Song's last foal.
3yo b c - Sepoy ex Baralinka Trained by Charlie Fellowes.
SENTINEL is a strong and solid sort that comes from a prolific family. He has been difficult to train through the summer, as he has suffered from a series of niggling problems. Sentinel went close in his first handicap at Wolverhampton recently, and is now being rested after having an operation on his stifle.
6yo ch g - Halling ex Top Romance Trained by Alan King.
Despite being bought to go hurdling, Top Tug won a decent Flat race at Lingfield last year, before finishing third in a valuable race at York's Dante meeting. He later went on to represent the Club at Royal Ascot and the Ebor Meeting. After a break, Top Tug made in instant impact over hurdles by winning his first race at Kempton, and now could be rested ahead of a summer campaign on the Flat.
3yo b f - Exceed And Excel ex Sister Act Trained by James Fanshawe.
Tribute Act's dam, Sister Act, sadly died whilst foaling this strong, imposing filly. She has always looked the part, and impressed onlookers when winning her only race to date at Kempton in October, despite not being fully wound up for the run. She followed in the footsteps of her aunt, Soviet Song (five-time Group 1 winner) and half-sister Ribbons (also a Group 1 winner) in winning on debut at Kempton, so we very much hope the future is bright for this filly.
8yo b g - Al Namix - Queen Of Rock Trained by Donald McCain.
Grand National-winning trainer Donald McCain has made a fine start to his Club career in the past decade and has continued that form with Volcanic, a three-time bumper winner in France, who won three of his first four starts in Club colours in 2014. Volcanic proved his versatility last season by winning over both hurdles and fences, and is now enjoying a very well deserved rest.
4yo b f - Duke Of Marmalade ex Affinity. Trained by James Fanshawe.
Zest has always shown plenty of ability on Newmarket Heath, but proved slightly disappointing last season, despite winning a tough handicap at Nottingham in the summer. She looked back to her best when finishing third at Newmarket when returning to a mile at the end of the season. James Fanshawe has always had great faith in this filly, so we hope she can fulfil her promise as a four-year-old this summer.
