Azamour gelding related to NH types Zarkandar, Third Intention and Jenkins. Kept on well on debut at Down Royal last month when not unbacked winning by ¾L. Another bold show looks likely.
€21,000 as a foal. Gelding by Yeats out of a Presenting mare related to plenty of solid national hunt types but the fitting of a tongue-tie on debut is a major concern.
Prince Flori gelding out of an Allied Forces mare. Sire and dam not noted for national hunt progeny. Probably best avoided on this occasion.
Well adrift of The Red Menace on debut in a Sligo bumper last month. Tough ask on debut for new connections.
Fame And Glory gelding out of a Kornado mare. Improved on a dismal debut in March when staying on strongly in the final stages in a Down Royal bumper to be 1¼L adrift of the winner Moratorium. Improvement expected in this company.
September Storm gelding out of a Medaille Millitaire cost €17,000 as a three-year-old. Worth a market check on debut with interesting jockey engagement.
Darley Stud sire Dahjee gelding who is not yet renowned for his national hunt progeny. Will come on for the experience of his debut when sixth of 14 at Ballinrobe last month and entitled to make the shortlist.
Cheap purchase daughter of Denham Red out of a Malinas mare. Best watched on debut with tongue-tie already fitted a major concern.
Stowaway filly out of a Kayf Tara mare related to solid national hunt types Hiiden Cyclone and Champagne Fever. Worth a market check on debut for a yard hitting the bar of late.
Arctic Cosmos filly out of a Saddlers Hall mare related to game national hunt types Uncle Junior and Master Of The Hall.
