Late developing gelding by Finsceal Fior out of a Leroidesanimaux related to many US winners on the dirt and Dubai World Cup winner Animal Kingdom. Better effort on second start over 1m2½f on AW at Dundalk. Bit more needed again.
Kyllachy colt, cost 100,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to three winners, has shaped with promise in trio of maidens, blinkers added now and must improve to win.
Cost just €1,400 and lacks the glamour of some of the rest on pedigree, beaten wide margins in maidens at Limerick and Naas so far, quickly overlooked in this.
Shamardal gelding cost 170,000 gns foal, placed on all four starts in maiden company and most recently on handicap bow at Leopardstown (1m, good). Sets the standard, but vulnerable to something with a gear change.
A 100,000 gns yearling, Oasis Dream filly. Half-sister to 7f-1m4f winner Last Week. Market should reveal more on debut in a winnable contest.
Sold for 20,000 gns as a yearling, though only fetched 8,000 gns as a two-year-old, Dawn Approach filly. Half-sister to smart winner up to 1m2½f Viren's Army and useful 1m winner Eagle Creek.
