Half-brother to recent 7f scorer On A May Day. Kept on well when it was too late on debut at Bellewstown earlier this month. Worth a check in the market.
Dark Angel gelding out of a Barathea mare. Expected to improve on his debut here when third of eight last month over 6f on good ground.
Dam was unplaced during her career between 5f and 9f in France but is a half-sister to a Listed race winner over 6f. Well held on debut last month and unlikely to trouble the judge here.
Zebedee gelding cost €2,200 as a yearling. Half brother to five winners including Hot Coffee and Partisan Art. Market likely to be best guide on debut.
€12,000 Elzaam half-brother to winners in Italy and Slovakia. Well beaten and no impression on disappointing debut at Naas last month and unlikely to play a part in the finish.
Improved for the third start of his career when finishing second of eight beaten 3L behind Loving A Boom here last month over 6f. Likely to appreciate the step up in trip and a leading player here.
Casemento filly, cost €3,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to an Italian winner and dam a half-sister to a Listed winner. Plenty to like about debut when third of nine behind Great Grey at Tipperary last month. Rates a leading contender.
€16,000 as a yearling half-sister to 1m4f winner Cape Aqraan and is granddaughter of French 1,000 Guineas third Gharam. Looks a long-term prospect.
Daughter of Leroidesanimaux out of a mare who is related to a number of useful middle-distance performers. Appears to be improving and looks primed for a big run here.
Modest performer for David O'Meara well beaten and without a win in three starts. Watching brief on debut for new connections.
