Lot 102: Merseybeat is bought by Anthony Stroud of Stroud Coleman Bloodstock for 105,000gns. She is by New Approach, in-foal on a first cover to Ribchester and was sold by Meon Valley Stud.

It is also the further family of the Group 1 Irish Oaks winner and Champion three-year-old filly, Covert Love. (12:36)

She is the winner of three races.

"She is for Flintstone Stud, for David and El Weston," said Houldsworth. "They have a few Flat mares, but are looking to increase the profile and we wanted a mare who was proven rather than a maiden mare. You have an idea of what she can do and you can see what you are buying.
"She has got a winner and her progeny have sold ok – the two-year-old by Iffraaj is with Roger Charlton and the New Approach yearling is supposed to be going to Book 2.
"She is by Exceed And Excel who I love, and, hopefully, if we get a nice foal we can get back the spend in one hit at the foal or yearling sales."
Sold by Kingwood Stud, Yeomanstown Stud was the underbidder.
Houldsworth then turned around quickly to buy Daring Life (Lot 53), a daughter of Cape Cross and in-foal to Expert Eye, sold by Ringfort Stud. She cost the agent 60,000gns.

Guineas Breeze Up & Horses in Training Sale
Kodiac Filly Tops Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up and Horses in Training Sale At the conclusion of the 2019 Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up and Horses in Training Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony commented:
“An abundance of overseas buyers from throughout Europe and the Gulf region, a significantly improved clearance rate of 86 per cent and a record turnover for the Horses in Training section of the fixture are all positives to take from the year’s renewal of the Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up and Horses in Training Sale.
"Buyers from Italy, Greece, Poland, Scandinavia and Spain, as well as a strong contingent of buyers from Dubai, Kuwait and Qatar, have all contributed to a clearance rate that has only been bettered once since 2012, but the sector of the market that has not matched recent renewals is the top end and the decline in average and turnover reflects this aspect of the sale.
"As ever there have been some very pleasing pinhooking successes, but overall there has been a shortage of highlights and domestic buyers have been a little restrained in comparison with the sustained overseas demand.
“The horses in training section of the sale continues to be popular and turnover just shy of a million is a new high, as is the median and the 90 per cent clearance rate which again demonstrates the enduring appeal of sales of this nature at Tattersalls.
"We will continue to work on attracting quality lots to this fixture, both breeze up two-year-olds and horses in training, and look forward to seeing plenty of racecourse success from the sale throughout 2019." (23:40)

"She is a very strong filly and did an exceptional breeze," said purchaser Richard Brown of Blandford Bloodstock. "She is going into training with Richard Hughes. I so like Sepoy's progeny."
Brown also purchased the Fred Darling Stakes (G3) winner Dabyah – a leading daughter of Sepoy – here as a yearling in October Book 2.
"This filly has been straightforward throughout, and has been very busy here," reported Mark and Paula Flannery of Egmont Stud.
The filly is out of Rhythm Excel, a full-sister to Rewarding Hero, a Listed winner and Group 1 runner-up in Hong Kong, and a half-sister to Dance And Dance, a runner-up in Diomed Stakes (G3). (19:42)
Lot 302: BMS Group Slawomir Pegza went to 70,000gns for the Candy Ride colt breezed by Tally-Ho Stud.
The colt is out of the D'Wildcat mare Promise Me A Cat and was purchased for $27,000 as a yearling in the US.
Tally-Ho Stud sold the top lot at the Craven Sale – the Kingman filly who fetched 850,000gns, bought by Godolphin (19:16)
Lot 300: the Holy Roman Emperor filly makes 67,000gns and is heading to Pegaz Stud in Poland. The farm, which has around 20 mares, stands the stallion Balios.
Breeder Andrzej Zielinski and agent Witold Miedzianowski said: "We did not think we'd have to pay that much for her, but she did a good breeze in a fast time. She will come back to Poland – if she is good enough we can travel her to run in France or Germany."
Pegaz Stud are one of the leading breeders in Poland, producing the winners of the country's top races, such as the Polish Derby, the Oaks Stakes and the Wielka Warszawska.
It was one of the pinhook results of the day - as a yearling the filly was bought for just 1,000gns through Emerald Bloodstock. (19:15)
Lot 293: becomes our top lot of the day when selling to Creighton Schwartz / Dance Thoroughbreds for 150,000gns.
"We thought she was the nicest filly in the sale today," said Daniel Creighton. "She is by Kodiac, has a good pedigree and did a very professional breeze. She shouldn't be too long and should be ready to run soon."
The filly, a daughter of the Archipenko mare Peace Palace, was a €60,000 foal purchase from Lisieux Stud by Highbank Stud, but she failed to sell onas a yearling.
"It sometimes happens, you have to be patient," said Martin Wainwright of Highbank Stud. "We really liked her and believed in her and it has paid off today.
"She breezed well and did a good time - we'd have been upset if we had not got a price like this today and we might have been tempted to keep and race her."
Consignor Mark Dwyer said: "She came to me from the yearling sales to be broken then went back to the Highbank, returning in January.
"She has been a pleasure to deal with throughout, a natural – she is one who could be on target for a certain date in June." (19:07)
Lot 286: the 75,000gns paid by Elliott for Lot 281 is quickly matched by Highflyer Bloodstock and Alan King, who bought this colt by Lope De Vega.
"We were waiting to buy this horse - and I am relieved that it has worked out, we really wanted him," said Anthony Bromley. "He is by Lope De Vega, who is a top sire, and he is lovely big strong horse from a very good hotel. I bought Severance (Nathaniel) off the consignors last year- he is training with Mick Channon, won at Haydock and and goes for the Chester Vase next week."
The Lope De Vega colt was bought as a yearling by Willie and Brian Slattery of Meadowlands Stud for just 10,000gns.
"He was the very last lot in the ring through Book 2 on day three," said Willie Slattery, whose patience was well rewarded today. "We loved him, he has been so straightforward and are delighted with this sale." (18:51)
Lot 281: Alex Elliott buys the Mukhadram filly for 75,000gns on behalf of the Mr and Mrs Turnbull of Elwick Stud.
"I really like this filly," said Elliott. "She did an extremely good breeze for a big filly who will be a backend two-year-old and more of a three-year-old type.
"I was in the US when Simon Callaghan-trained Qaraaba, and he really felt she could have been a Group 1 filly. She has already produced a stakes horse, who has been a Group 1 third, and it is a pedigree that could start to grow.
"She has been bought with broodmare possibilities and could be one for Elwick's Mondialiste further down the line.
This filly will probably have a break now and then head to a northern-based trainer." (18:35)
Lot 263: the Cable Bay colt from Meadowview Stables makes 72,000gns and becomes a joint top-price for today.
"He is to go into training in Newmarket," said purchaser Richard Frisby. "He is a nice sort, he breezed and vetted well. Cable Bay has made a good start too."
First-season stallion Cable Bay is already the sire of three winners of four races – Electric Ladybird has won her two career starts to date and is entered in next week's Listed Lily Agnes Stakes at Chester. (18:04)
Lot 242: from Ardglas Stables this son of Charm Spirit makes 45,000gns, having been bought for €18,000 as a yearling in France at Osarus September Sale.

He was bought by Durcan Bloodstock, who also bought two lots in today's earlier horses in training session. (17:16)
Lot 212: the Starspangledbanner colt, bred and sold by Morna McDowall, fetches 70,000gns. He was bought by Geoff Price for Happy Valley Racing and goes into training with Stuart Williams.
"We spent too much!" laughed Price, "but Stuart kept saying, 'Go one more!' I thought we had him at 60,000gns, but we are delighted to have him – we were near the top of our budget!
"We looks a real two-year-old type and is by a good two-year-old sire - let's hope he is lucky. He goes from here to Stuart's."
McDowell added: "He looks a real fun horse and I hope he is lucky for his new owners." (16:24)
Lot 206: the daughter of Zoffany gives consignors Leamore Horses Ltd a great return on its autumn yearling pinhook investment of €6,000 when selling today for 62,000gns.
Tom Goff was the purchaser and said: "She is for trainer George Baker. She is a lovely, racey and shapely sort, breezed well and George won't be waiting too long for her. She has a top back pedigree too."
The filly is a grand-daughter of Renashaan (Darshaan), the dam of the champion and multiple Group 1 winner Alexander Goldrun and the Group 3 winner, Medecis.
The filly's own dam Dashing (Sadler's Wells) has had three winners from four runners.
It has been a great spring for Leamore Horses, run by the husband and wife team of Cormac Farrell and Anna Calder – the pair also sold the point-to-point winner Wide Receiver to Tom Malone and Gordon Elliott for £410,000 at the February Tattersalls Ireland Cheltenham Sale. (16:05)
Lot 205: David Redvers spent 45,000gns on this daughter of first-season sire Ivawood, sold by C.A.J. Stables.
"She is for a partnership of friends," smiled Redvers. "She goes into training Ben Haslam – he did so well with Castle Hill Cassie last year. This filly did a good breeze and her sire Ivawood has made a good start."
Castle Hill Cassie, a Listed winner at Pontefract last August and rated 100, was part-owned by Redvers, who added: "She is safely in-foal to Zoustar and is on her way back to Tweenhills." (16:00)
Lot 189: Ajay Anne's Dubai-based New Approach Bloodstock, which purchased four lots in today's horses in training section, adds to the haul with this colt by Union Rags. He cost 55,000gns and was sold by Grove Stud.
He is out of the US Listed-placed mare Brown Eyed Mary (Pulpit). (15:21)

All have been bought for Dubai-based trainer Helal Al Alwai.
"We came especially for this horse, he was our main goal," said Al Alawi. "He is well rated and will be a Carnival horse. He is by Shamardal and they go well in Dubai, on the Dirt. He has acted well at Southwell and that is the closest – it is left-handed and the surface resembles Dirt."
The team matches the purchase sum with its purchase of Wild Card entry Lot 134, Geneticist (Footstepsinthesand). (13:44)

A son of Sepoy, Executive Force, trained by Michael Wigham since January 2018, has one Turf maiden win by his name, but six wins on the All-Weather. His last victory came in February at Lingfield off a mark of 93. (12:00)

Craven Breeze Up Sale
Chairman's statement: At the conclusion of the 2019 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony commented;
“An improved clearance rate and a good cross section of buyers, both domestic and overseas, are positives to take from the 2019 renewal of the Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale.
"We deliberately catalogued fewer two-year-olds than last year and understandably the turnover has reflected this decision, but it was definitely prudent to keep a tighter rein on the numbers.
"The sale has as ever produced some outstanding pinhooking successes, most notably Tally-Ho Stud’s outstanding 850,000 guineas Kingman filly, who is the highest-priced filly ever sold at a European Breeze Up Sale.
"It has been encouraging to see new faces from Hong Kong and the USA participating, as well as a significant number of buyers from throughout the Gulf region active at all levels of the market.
"Trainers have also responded positively to the new £15,000 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Bonus and we look forward to rewarding owners for their confidence in the Craven Breeze Up as the season unfolds.
"In the meantime we look forward to the forthcoming Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up and Horses in Training Sale which features a further 172 quality Breeze Up two-year-olds and 132 horses in training." (20:41)
