Siyouni colt cost €180,000 as a yearling, nicely related. Showed improved effort when upped to this trip at Leopardstown on his second start. Has been gelded since that run and now sets the standard for the newcomers to aim at.
War Front colt. 4th foal, brother to 6f 2yo winner Dramatically. Dam was a winner over 1m3f & 1m4f including at Listed level. Likely type on paper for powerful yard that also run Harpo Marx.
Weak in the market on debut and ran accordingly. Improvement when trying to make the running at Leopardstown (1m, good to firm) two weeks ago. Further improvement needed here but that is very possible.
Kitten's Joy colt whose price rose from just $20,000 as a yearling to 80,000 gns as a two-year-old. Dam was a winner on dirt from 5f-7f in the US. Likely type for debut and market will be a good guide.
Kingman colt that has a lovely pedigree. Fetched 32,000 gns as a yearling. Dam was a listed winner over 1m2f & 1m4f. Very much of interest on debut and market will guide.
Teofilo colt that has a real middle distance pedigree. Likely to find this trip a little on the sharp side for debut, but market check advised all the same
Exceed and Excel colt that cost 110,000 gns as a yearling. First foal, dam was a winner in France. This trip looks a good starting point.
Galileo colt that has a wonderful mix of speed and stamina in his pedigree. Dam was a Group 1 winning sprinter in Australia. Very much of interest on debut for powerful connections that also run Antilles.
Charm spirit filly who price rose from €27,000 to 78,000 gns as a two-year-old. Dam was a winner over a mile as a two-year-old including at Listed level. Likely type on paper.
Daughter of Galileo with a wonderful pedigree. Sister to previous winners Waver and Gold Seal. Dam was Group placed. Interesting to see what the market makes of her.
