Camelot filly, closely related to Group 3 winner Wading and Irish Oaks winner Bracelet. Shown very little in two starts to date but holds Classic entries and may do better now upped in trip.
Galileo filly and a half-sister to top class middle distance filly Danedream. Unable to quicken in 6f Naas maiden last June on sole outing. Holds Classic entries and likely this step up in trip will see her to much better effect. Tongue-tie added.
Leroidesanimaux filly, half-sister to a winner and dam was Group placed and a sister to two Group 3 winners. Holds both Irish 1,000 Guineas and Irish Oaks entries. Worth a market check.
Fastnet Rock filly, half-sister to a winner and dam a half-sister to a Listed winner over this trip. Entered in the Irish Oaks and yard's newcomers are worthy of respect.
Galileo filly, full-sister to Irish Oaks winner Chicquita and dam was a Listed winner. Too green to do herself justice on debut here last year over a mile but likely to be more forward here and she's a well bred sort. Could be the one to beat.
Camelot filly, cost €44,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to two winners and dam a Listed winner and sister to a Group 2 winner. Entered in the Irish Oaks and worth a market check on debut but may need this.
Pivotal filly, sister to two winners including a Swedish Listed winner. Dam a half-sister to a Group 2 winner. Yard operating at a 25% strike-rate in recent weeks and worth a market check on debut.
Well beaten on all four of her starts and more exposed than the rest of her rivals. Likely to come up short in what is likely to prove a strong maiden. Wears first-time cheekpieces.
