Big Bad Bob gelding, cost 34,000 gns as a yearling. He has run a couple of nice races so far in maidens and should go close here, though the yard are going through a lean spell.
A bit keen last time at the Curragh over 6f in a race won by Alpha Centauri. Previous effort over this trip on debut was much better. Could bounce back.
Has twice come within a whisker over this trip at Cork and again ran pleasing race Down Royal 12 days ago. There or thereabouts and surely will shed maiden tag soon.
Has shown some promise in three maidens and, while not an apparent winner in waiting, can't be discounted. May be best seen going handicapping.
Al Kazeem filly ran nice race over 5f at Cork last month, confounding any worries she might lack for toe as she finished 4¾L third of eight runners. Can progress from that.
Has already gone close on two occasions in 5f maidens on good ground at Navan and Down Royal. Hood goes on first time here and filly will get in if she keeps knocking on the door.
Daughter of Canford Cliffs hasn't exactly been progressing in maidens so far and she ran her worst race over this trip at Cork last month, finishing tailed off. Hard to fancy at the moment.
