Dutch Art gelding, cost €120,000 as a foal. Dam a winner and half-sister to an Irish 1,000 Guineas winner. Not a good sign he has been gelded and that he was so keen on debut when behind Darkash at the Curragh.
Has shown plenty of pace but has failed to see his races out. Would make more appeal at 5f but not without a chance in a race that will take little winning.
Maintained his rate of progress when third in a decent looking field at the Curragh and this looks a lot easier. Cheekpieces now fitted.
Swiss Spirit half-brother to 7f winner Eldey. Never a threat on debut at Chester and yard 0-29 this year.
€65,000 son of Dutch Art out of a 7f winner. Entered for a couple of valuable races in the autumn and stable in good form.
€43,000 son of Helmet out of a modest winning sprinter. Not highly tried on debut and the market should be informative.
Last Year's Winner
Darkash (5/4), Count D'orsay (3/1), Asdaa (5/1), Larmour (11/2), Power Down (14/1), Frow (50/1)
