Daughter of Flemensfirth out of a an Oscar mare related to Tidal Bay and Waiting Patiently. Showed very little on two starts so far and passed over.
Poor efforts in point-to-points and then well beaten in two bumpers so far. Readily opposed here once again with much improvement needed.
Westerner mare. Half-sister to bumper winner/fairly useful hurdler Dorans River. Dam was a winner over hurdles and market will be a good guide on debut.
Daughter of Irish Derby winner Frozen Fire. Pulled up on bumper debut when not looking fluent and needs to do much better to be involved.
Second foal, dam unraced half-sister to fairly useful hurdler Boleyknowsbest. Makes rules debut and market will be best guide on debut.
Daughter of Gold Well out of a Flemensfirth mare who won a point-to-point in May. Well backed bu only beat one rival home on debut and goes up in trip here.
Unseated the rider when sent off a short-priced favourite for her only point-to-point. Nice pedigree and sent off favourite on bumper debut at Punchestown before finishing a close third. Type to do better and obvious claims.
Improved for the switch to this yard and did well to finish second of 11 at Downpatrick last month. Still beaten 10L there so needs to do more for win purposes.
First foal; dam unplaced 2m-3m hurdles, half-sister to point winner Patricia's Girl out of point winner. Market will be best guide on rules debut.
Inexpensive €4,000 purchase daughter of Kalanisi out of a Luso mare related to Katchit and Brain Power. Beaten a long way on both starts so far and best watched.
Pulled-up and unseated rider on two starts so far in points. Dam only raced once over hurdles. Market useful on rules debut.
Well beaten in all starts so far in bumpers and over hurdles. Needs a leap of faith to say she's be up to winning this.
Multiple point-to-point winner, sported a hood (retained) when making hurdles bow at Downpatrick. Showed much improved form when finishing second last time and will be a player if able to translate that form back to a bumper.
Fair in a number of point-to-point starts recently and has Imperial Commander and Waiting Patiently as relatives. Shaped ok on debut at Gowran Park and likely more to come.
A winner of her only start in a point-to-point and has since joined this top trainer. Beaten a long way in her two starts so far so plenty of improvement needed on the back of a short break.
Daughter of Stowaway, who was high-class middle distance horse at 3-4. Good sire of NH winners including Champagne Fever, Hidden Cyclone and Outlander. Well beaten on debut almost a year ago and much more needed.
Gold Well Filly. Dam was an average hurdler who failed to win. Market likely to be best guide on rules debut today.
First reserve; Beaten a long way on all three starts so far and would need major improvement to be involved here.
