Elusive Pimpernel gelding who dam was a maiden and stayed up to 7f. Weakened inside final furlong on debut in a Leopardstown maiden over 7f. Open to improvement but may be vulnerable in this company.
Positive progression on his second start when runner up in a Gowran Park maiden last month. Expected to improve once again.
Canford Cliffs gelding out of a Raven's Pass mare. Cost 1,500gns as a yearling. Yard not known for their juveniles and easily dismissed here on debut.
February foal by Lope De Vega out of a Invincible Spirit mare. Half-brother to recent 10f Epsom winner Derek Duval. Yard one from 12 with their juveniles this season so caution advised on debut.
January foal by Dragon Pulse out of a Bernadini mare. Cost €64,000 as a yearling related to game 7f winner Firefright and half-brother to Absolute Zero. Yard in good form and five from 28 with their juveniles this term.
