Just the two runs on the Flat, 50/1 and no sort of threat in a 7f Dundalk claimer most recently, hard to make a case for her.
Art Connoisseur mare. Half-sister to decent winner Settle For Red. Making it to the track for the first time at five-years-old, watch betting.
Bushranger filly is a half-sister to useful winner up to 1m2f Goodwood Zodiac, yard not noted for producing first time out winners, likely holding minor claims.
Sent off 50/1 and finished midfield in 18-runners maiden at the Curragh (6f, heavy) last week, likely to need a bit of time.
Made a decent fist of things in 5½f soft-ground Listed event at Naas on this start, not discounted in calmer waters and back up in journey.
Form in two starts has been poor, beating only one rival home here last time in a maiden over extended-mile on heavy ground. Needs this surface to bring about a fair bit of improvement.
Picking up plenty experience and ran a fine race last time in 7f Listed Naas event on heavy when second to Mrs Gallagher. Sets the standard on that piece of work.
Kodiac filly will need to step up markedly on two showings in maidens so far, latest being on heavy ground over 1m at the Curragh last week when seventh of 16 runners. Scope for better.
First foal Vitual filly out of a Choisir mare related to multiple winners Monsieur Joe, Olympic Glory and Chosen One. Much more required following recent AW debut.
War Front filly out of a Sadlers Wells mare. Made pleasing start in 1m heavy-ground maiden at the Curragh last week in third. From Ballydoyle and liable to improve for that effort.
Dark Angel filly cost €52,000 as a foal and is a half-sister to three winners, including useful two-year-old 6f-1m winner Singapore Lilly. Notable newcomer.
Produced a better effort on four start, in a 7f AW maiden when third. That might be the height of aspirations again here.
Second of 14 in maiden at Dundalk over 1m on AW in debut effort, given a break since. Could be more to come and interesting should any money come for her.
Casamento filly whose dam was a 1m-1m4f winner, also won over hurdles. Others make more appeal on paper for this.
Clodovil filly, dam was a maiden and half-sister to useful two-year-old 7f winner Dazzling Day. Yard capable of having one ready, watch betting.
Just the two starts and nothing overly meritorious about midfield finish in 7f AW maiden at Dundalk last time, though it was an improvement on the debut showing. More called for.
