Modest sort in three hurdles outings and a bumper, first time dipping below 2m. Respected trainer/jockey team, but looks an unlikely scorer on form.
Galileo colt, finished third in both starts in AW maidens over 1m/1m2½f, should go close here for Ballydoyle, though certainly no good thing.
Once-raced gelding. Sent off 50/1 and finished last of 11 in maiden at Gowran (7f, soft) nine days ago. Best watched on that showing.
Placed in both maidens so far, 7f on the AW at Dundalk (runner-up) and 1m at Leopardstown (third), should have similar claims here at worst.
Beat just one rival (of eight) home on debut over 1m2f (heavy) at the Curragh last week on debut. Easier to look elsewhere in pursuit of winner now.
High Chaparral filly. Closely related to three winners, including very smart winner up to 2m Gallante and useful 1m5f winner Plinth. Market will guide on debut.
Just foiled on debut at Leopardstown (7f, good) a year ago, then went off the boil over the summer somewhat before again going close (sixth start) over that C&D in October. Player on best form.
