Pleasing efforts to be runner-up on both starts over 6f at The Curragh and Fairyhouse, Looks the one to beat if replicating those displays.
Makfi filly who cost 13,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-sister to a couple of winners. Likely to need this debut run, but is worth a check in the betting.
Sleeping Indian half-sister to a couple of winners who was last of 16 at Tipperary on her only run as a juvenile. Has changed stables since that run and is best watched on this occasion.
A daughter of Power and a half-sister to the useful Flying Fairies, she was sixth of eight at The Curragh on debut. She should have learned from that experience and can do better.
A €30,000 filly by Choisir, she is a half-sister to 6f AW two-year old winner Disprove out of a speedy well related dam. Fourth of seven at Dundalk on her only run as a juvenile and may need more time to mature.
A stable companion of Excelling Spirit, she is a filly by Shamardal out of a Linamix mare. Down the field on debut at Leopardstown in October and needs to have made progress since to be involved at the finish in this.
Has beaten only one rival in four starts on the AW. Needs to show dramatic improvement on this switch to turf.
Daughter of Leroidesanimaux out of a mare who is related to a number of useful middle-distance performers. Needed her debut run at this track last August, but has been given time to develop and can surely do better for leading connections.
