The action kicked off at Beverley where Es Que Love made a striking impression when taking the 5f maiden in the colours of Crone Stud Farms Ltd. The son of Clodovil was bred in Ireland by Newhall Ltd and purchased by trainer Mark Johnston for 22,000gns at the Tattersalls October Sale.

He is the second foal out of French winner Es Que, who is also the dam of smart handicapper Dominant.

Three-year-old Diamond Blue was one of only two debutantes  in the 5f maiden atCatterick but inexperience failed to prevent her from making a winning debut and landing her owner, Jane Newitt, a £10,000 bonus.

The Richard Whitaker-trained daughter of Namid was a £20,000 yearling purchase by Peter Doyle at the DBS Premier Yearling Sale. Bred by Hellwood Stud Farm, she is a half-sister to four winners including multiple sprint scorer Ingleby Lady.

Another three-year-old off the mark was Rave, who made it third time lucky in the 1m maiden at Newmarket. Owned by Gary and Linnet Woodward, the son of Oratorio was bred in Ireland by P E Banahan and sold for €40,000 to Amanda Skiffington and JohnHills at the Goffs Orby Sale.

And there was also an Irish winner when the Dermot Weld-trained Crimson Sunrise ran down Rockview Diamond get off the mark over 6f at Navan. The daughter of Holy Roman Emperor was bred by Ballyhane Stud and bought for €75,000 at the Goffs Orby Sale by Bobby O'Ryan on behalf of owner Ann Lambe.
