Cheap purchase €8,500 as a three-year-old. Half-brother to chase/hurdle winner Activial. Looks a long-term prospect.
Vinnie Roe gelding. Dam lightly raced in bumpers/hurdles, closely related to smart bumper winner Turnandgo. Last of 10 in a Gowran Park bumper on debut last month and best left for the moment.
Gelding by Doyen out of a Fruits Of Love mare. Cost €33,000 as a three-year-old and half-brother to Kumbeshwar. Market likely to reveal chances on debut for leading owners.
Colt by Bashkirov out of a Intikhab mare. Ran a gallant second of 14 beaten 1¼L on debut in a Ballinrobe bumper in May before disappointing at Kilbeggan last month. Hard to fancy and may not be trustworthy.
Son of Mustameet out of a Symboli Heights mare and is unlikely to trouble the judge on debut here.
Daughter of Court Cave out of a Whitmore's Conn mare. Half-sister to gallant types Court Minstrel, Willoughby Court and Champion Court. Well held on debut in a Ballinrobe bumper in May but not totally ruled out.
Nothing of note in two disappointing maiden hurdle starts recently. Well held on bumper debut last month and very little to be positive about here.
Daughter of Fair Mix out of a Robellino mare. Cost £23,000 as a yearlig before going on to make €52,000 as a three-year-old. Likely to be a warm order for leading stable.
