Pulled up in a point-to-point and well beaten in a bumper. Makes his debut on the Flat and faces a massive task conceding weight all round.
Dawn Approach colt out of a Rainbow Quest mare, he cost 65,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-brother to several winners. Plenty of promise when third of 15 on debut at The Curragh and looks a leading player in this.
Gelded son of Lawman out of a Pivotal mare, he is a brother to winning stayer Laws Of Spin. Makes his debut for top jumps yard and is worth noting for any market support.
Leroidesanimaux gelding who is a half-brother to three winners. Not much went right for him on debut at The Curragh when Dawn Trouper was third, but he showed plenty of ability and can make his presence felt given better luck in running.
Galileo colt who is a brother to the very smart Bondi Beach. Stayed on well to be fourth of 12 over 1m4f at Leopardstown on debut and should be sharper this time. Drop in trip a slight worry, though.
Daughter of Ask who has a jumping pedigree. Likely to find several of these too speedy and can only be watched on debut.
Sent off at big prices when well held on both her starts. Makes little appeal in this, but may do better when handicapping.
Cape Cross filly who is a half-sister to three winners over middle-distances. Makes plenty of appeal on paper and is an interesting newcomer for a leading yard which won this race last year.
Fastnet Rock filly who is a sister to 1m winner Athasel Abbey. Stable can get one ready to win first time so she is worth a check in the betting on debut.
