Dandy Man filly out of a winner in Scandinavia. Showed very little when last of 11 at Fairyhouse (6f) last month, never going the pace.
Dream Ahead half-sister to useful juvenile sprinter Royal Razalma. Slowly away when last of seven on racecourse bow at Killarney (1m) in May, but did show ability, and drop in trip should help now.
Vale of York filly from family of top-class Tenby, but sold very cheaply as a foal, and making a rather belated first visit to the track. Passed over unless attracting market support.
Dark Angel half-sister to winners from excellent family of Marling and Marwell. Didn't show a great deal when mid-division on debut at the Curragh (1m) last month, but ought to improve.
First foal of a winning half-sister to smart middle-distance handicapper Kinema. Makes some appeal on pedigree, but wide draw not ideal.
Impeccably bred filly, but not lived up to pedigree in three starts so far, albeit better than bare result when sixth at Gowran most recently. Blinkers reached for now, and has high draw to overcome, but may yet do better.
Half-sister to three winners, but she showed little after a tardy start on previous outing at Navan. Hood she wore there retained, and easy to look elsewhere.
Exposed maiden who was below her best when front-running 4¼ lengths fourth of 9 to Betsey Trotter at Navan last time. Slow starts have become a feature with her, but place claims if getting away on terms.
Showed more than previously when sixth of 16 at Cork on penultimate outing, and would have finished closer when second in handicap at Listowel last time (tongue-tied) but for an awkward start. Considered despite wide draw.
Red Jazz filly out of a 7f juvenile winner. Shaped nicely when 1¾ lengths third of 12 to Clique in 7f maiden at Gowran on debut, doing best work late. Looks sure to improve, and much respected.
Kyllachy half-sister to useful winners Marching Time and Moorside. Represents powerful connections, and market check essential ahead of racecourse bow.
Well-related New Approach filly who cost €675,000 as a yearling. Plenty of promise when third on Naas debut, and out of her depth in Irish 1000 Guineas next time. Sets the standard on those efforts, and still unexposed.
Casamento filly who has shown very little on either start to date. Low-grade handicaps likely to provide more realistic opportunities.
Iffrajj filly out of a 7f/1m winner. Signs of inexperience when sixth of 12 on racecourse debut at Gowran late last month, and should do better with experience.
Teofilo half-sister to several winners from a classy family. Better than result when favourite and fifth in a 7f maiden at Dundalk in November, and no surprise to see her build markedly on that now.
