Stepped up on debut effortw hen finishing a close fourth of 15 at Roscommon (7f, good) last month. Blinkers worn for the first time that day are retained.
Unraced gelded son of Charm Spirit and a half-brother to winning sprinter Captain Hawk. Worth a check in the market on debut.
Unraced Havana Gold filly and a half-sister to winner Sirius Shine. Represents a top yard and is one to note on debut.
Unraced daughter of Casamento bought for €30,000 as a yearling last September. Half-sister to dual winner Barrington but yard just 2/33 with their youngsters in recent years.
Unraced son of Alhebayeb cost connections €15,000 at the sales last year. Half-brother to placed sprinter Emphatic and probably best watched on debut.
Fair effort in finishing 3L seventh at Roscommon (7f, good) on debut last month. Interesting to see how he fares on this occasion.
Finished mid-division in a Cork maiden over an extended 6f on good ground when making his debut in May. More need in this contest.
Ran well when finishing fifth on debut at The Curragh (7f, good) three weeks ago. Repeat of that should see her play a leading role dropping in trip.
Well held in a 7f maiden on good-to-firm ground here when making her debut a month ago. Others hold stronger claims.
Struggled when making her debut in a 5f maiden at Navan (good-to-firm) recently. Step up in trip should suit but probably best watched at present.
Unraced daughter of Slade Power and a half-sister to a couple of middle-distance winners. Interesting to see how she fares on debut.
Struggled in three maiden contests so far including over this trip on her penultimate outing. Likely to be of more interest once tackling handicaps.
