A €14,000 yearling this Society Rock gelding is a half-brother to winner up to 6½f Mal And Dave. Very green on debut at the Curragh last week and will need to have learnt plenty from that to have a say here.
Some promise on debut effort when fourth of nine over 5f here but disappointing when last of 16 over C&D last time. Needs to bounce back from that effort.
Very consistent sort, placed on each of his last four starts. Beaten short-priced favourite the last day but sets a solid standard for the rest to aim at here.
Dandy Man colt out of a Key Of Luck mare €40,000 yearling related to Sha Tin high-class Group 1 winner Peniaphobia. Looked in need of the experience on debut at Dundalk but should do better here.
Cost plenty as a yearling but struggling a little to get her head in front and beaten at short odds at Naas last time. This doesn't look any easier and may need to improve.
Tamayuz filly, cost €6,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to three winning sprinters and dam a sister to winner and half-sister to another. First-time hood not a good sign for debut and others preferred.
Has run some fair races but she looks exposed in comparison to some of these and has missed the break on occasions, as seen when well beaten at Naas last time.
Tough As Nails filly out of a Key Of Luck mare related to dual Group 1 winner Almashar. Shown very little on two starts to date and handicaps are more likely winning route.
By Vocalised out of a Lemon Drop Kid mare. Yet to finish in the places in three starts and this is tougher than her more recent assignments. Plenty to find on form.
