Unraced gelded son of Intello bought for €95,000 at the sales as a yearling. Half-brother a number of useful performers and wears a tongue tie on debut.
Unraced home-bred son of Sea The Stars and a half-brother to Group-placed filly Balansiya. Jockey bookings suggest he is the stable second string.
Unraced home-bred son of Sea The Stars out of a 7f winning mare. Looks the stables best chance of victory based on jockey bookings.
Well held eighth when making his debut in a 7f maiden at Gowran Park (soft-to-heavy) earlier this month. Stepping up in trip.
Unraced home-bred son of The Carbon Unit. Dam successful five times on the Flat including in a Group 3 but probably best watched on debut.
Well held fourth when making his debut at Ripon (1m2f, good-to-soft) last month and others have a more obvious chance in this.
Finished a close fourth at The Curragh (1m, good-to-firm) on debut last August but failed to build on that in two starts on the AW subsequently. Stepping up in distance on seasonal debut.
Decent efforts in two starts as a juvenile most recently when third over 1m1f at Tipperary (heavy) in October. Worth a check in the market on seasonal reappearance.
Shaped as if this step up in trip would suit when finishing fifth in a Dundalk maiden over 7f earlier this month. Likely to have benefited from the experience and he is an interesting runner in this.
Finished sixth in a 1m Dundalk maiden on his sole start last season. Gelded subsequently and interesting to see how he fares on his seasonal and turf debut.
Ran well to finish runner-up in a maiden over 1m at Dundalk on his racecourse debut earlier this month. Likely to have improved for the experience and one for the shortlist stepping up in distance.
Well held in a couple of 7f maiden contests on soft-to-heavy ground earlier this month and likely to be of more interest once tackling handicaps.
Caught the eye when finishing 10L fifth in a 1m maiden at Leopardstown (soft) on debut last October. Breeding suggests this step up in trip will suit and he is an interesting runner on seasonal debut.
Well held in a 7f maiden at Dundalk on racecourse debut last month. Step up in trip should suit but probably best watched at present.
