By Arakan related to the likes of Toomore, Dick Turpin and recent Listowel winner On The Go Again. Took a keen hold on debut when fifth of 10 at Roscommon and eased when beaten in the closing stages. Can be expected to improve on that run here.
Zebedee colt is a half-brother to 6f winner Amadeus Star and recent Doncaster winner Spring Loaded. Second-rate debut when ninth of 10 on Naas debut. Others hold stronger profiles in this.
Is making steady progress and developing with every start. Fourth of five last time out at the Curragh over 5f on soft ground when last seen in June. One for the notebook with first-time tongue-tie.
By Epaulette out of a Dixie Union mare and cost 44,000gns as a yearling. Sire has made a steady start with his progeny in 2017 with the likes of Regimented, Doublet and recent Salibury winner Ojala catching the eye.
Sent off at odds of 50/1 and 25/1 on his two career starts the Bahamian Bounty gelding will need to step up on his ineffective runs at Galway and Bellewstown. Others preferred.
War Front colt is related to some smart winners including Red Avenger, Declaration Of War and the recent Salisbury winner Thafeera. Promising debut when second of 16 at the Curragh and will be expected to come on for that run.
Expected to improve on debut run at Naas the Vocalised colt put in a second-rate performance when dropping away tamely finishing last of 10. Looks a tall order on form shown.
Zebedee gelding took step in the right direction on second start at Navan over 6f when third of 15 beaten 1½L. Ground and distance gives him a head start here.
Kodiac filly, cost 55,000gns as a yearling. Dam a half-sister to Group 3 winner Venturi and Listed winner Feels Alright. Signs of promise on debut at the Curragh on yielding to soft ground but disappointed latest at Leopardstown.
By Intense Focus out of a Bachelor Duke mare, related to multiple winners Hipz, Intense Romance and recent Listowel winner All The Mollies. Needed the experience on debut here when fifth of nine over 6f.
Failed to build on a slightly promising debut at the Curragh when finishing 16th of 18 at Leopardstown earlier in the month.The drop to 6f may bring about some improvement but others make more appeal.
Managed to improve on debut at the Curragh when fourth of 16 beaten 8L on soft ground over 7½f at Leopardstown. Can be expected to possibly improve again.
By Shamardal out of a Dr Fong mare related to the likes of Bosham, Lancelot Du Lac and the recent Ascot winner Cape Byron. Yard without a winner in five years.
Declaration Of War filly out of a Pivotal mare. Sire having a quiet start to his stallion career but has produced the winners Actrees, Eirene, for trainer-Dean Ivory and Goodwood second Ripley. Any market move would be a decent guide.
By Dream Ahead out of a Green Desert mare, related to multiple winners Tisbutadream, Justice Lady and recent Epsom winner Dream Machine. Market will be the best guide to his chances here.
First Reserve: €10,000 juvenile by Casamento who wasn't overly knocked about on debut at Dundalk, before a dour performance when seventh of 15 in a Navan maiden.
Second Reserve: 180,000gns Scat Daddy colt related to an 8f juvenile winner. Not seen since debut in April when seventh of 18 in a Navan maiden and others preferred here.
