Le Havre gelding who cost €9,000 as a yearling. Dam was a winner at two. Disappointing when sixth of seven, well beaten on debut.
Son of Thewayyouare out of a mare who was a winner over 5f as a two-year-old. No impression and never a factor when last of 11, making debut at the Galway festival.
Son of Rip Van Winkle. Cost connections €12,000 as a yearling in September last year. No impression and one pace final 2f on debut in Galway festival maiden.
Cost €15,000 as a two-year-old, ran out of steam over 6f on debut at Fairyhouse, before finishing last of 11, beaten 22L on second start at the Galway festival.
Has beaten two rivals home in eight and 13 runner fields at Leopardstown and Curragh. Difficult to muster much encouragement here.
Unraced filly, daughter of Epaulette who was dual 7f Group 1 winner in Australia. First crop of two-year-olds have produced eight winners.
Consistent filly who has seen one a little quicker in each of her last three starts and is due a change of luck.
Beaten 23L into eight in a nine runner maiden over 7f at Gowran Park, before suffering a 21L defeat at Naas five days later.
Unraced filly of Lovelace, who was a 5f winner as a two-year-old, eventually developed in to a tough 7f performer. Probaly best watched here on debut.
Unraced filly of Distorted Humor, who was high class US dirt colt over 7f and 8f. Sire of top filly Cursory Glance. Best watched on debut.
Late debutante for yard. Sire, Vocalised, developed in to a smart three-year-old. Yard 7/72 with their youngsters this season.
