Vocalised gelding who has a pedigree it's fairly tough to get excited about. Beaten a long way in maidens at Naas (1m, soft to heavy) and Navan (5f, heavy) so far and hard to make a case for.
Didn't fire at Naas last month (6f, heavy) but still has time to rectify that, up in trip and remains one to pay some attention to.
Just denied on debut at Naas (6f, soft) in a maiden in October, and should prove better than he showed over that C&D recently on return to action. Those efforts give him sound claims up in trip.
Holy Roman Emperor gelding is a half-brother to three winners, including smart 5f-6f winner Invincible Ash. Has champion apprentice for company.
By Zebedee out of a Bachelor Duke and related to some useful sorts. Poor efforts in both runs so far on the AW at Dundalk and doesn't attract the eye for his switch to turf.
Remains opposable following 20L defeat in 7f heavy-ground maiden at Cork on second start, first on turf.
Dark Angel colt who cost £50,000 as a yearling, back down in trip but has failed to trouble the leading protagonists in maidens at Naas (6f) and Leopardstown (1m) so far.
Kodiac gelding is closely related to multiple useful winners, jockey has a 40% strike rate riding for this yard over previous 12 months so worth paying some attention to.
By Pour Moi, is a half-brother to three winners, including very smart 1m2f-1m4f winner Exosphere. Third in 1m Navan maiden on debut this month, not certain to be suited by drop in trip.
Lope De Vega gelding related to multiple winners, much-respected on debut for the Weld team in what could prove a very winnable maiden.
