i personally like the `stunning 7yr tb mare` it looks like it has nice movement adn stuff.
the first horse u highlighted in blue in the second pic he is behind the vertical. or the 'will make a good hack' looks like a nice horse
a scopy jump means like their back is coming up and they have a shapely jump not flat!

You're best bet is to go out and see AND ride those horses.

Fantastic AllRounder is pretty nice. ;)

I also like the stunning tb mare.
But I agree- to really get more info & stuff about these horses, I'd go check them out in person. :) Most of them look nice though, but I can't really tell you anything about their confo from the pics.

Ride more, worry less.
