€21,000 as a foal. Gelding by Yeats out of a Presenting mare. Comes here on the back of a couple of fine runner-up finishes recently and enters calculations here.
Inexpensive €5,000 eighth foal by Bushranger out of a Ela Mana Mou mare. Worth a check in the betting but possibly a long-term project.
improving with every run appearing to be running with plenty of enthusiasm of late and should be in the mix here with conditions to suit.
Jeremy gelding out of a Mandalus mare. Nothing of note in sole point-to-point start but trainer purchases soundly and is worth a market check.
Gelding by Doyen out of a Fruits Of Love mare. Cost €33,000 as a three-year-old and half-brother to Kumbeshwar. Will come on for promising introduction in a Sligo bumper last month.
Bolger-bred gelding out of a Princely Heir mare. Likely to come on for the experience here on racecourse graduation.
Finished behind Chasing Abbey on debut in a Killarney bumper last month with Patrick Mullins booked. Each way claims in this grade.
Lilbourne Lad gelding out of a Cyrano De Bergerac mare. Sire not renowned for his national hunt progeny and others make more appeal here.
Well held on debut in a Killarney contest in May and will possibly struggle again in this company despite first-time tongue-tie.
First-time hood reached for following a 33L defeat on debut here in June. Liable to find a couple stronger.
Failed to finish in sole point-to-point start in May. Easily opposed with yard having just their second runner of the season.
Filly by Hilton Head out of a Musical Pursuit mare. Sire not distinguished for his national hunt off-spring and this youngster is best avoided here on debut.
No extra kept on same pace on debut in a Killarney 2m1f bumper last month. Hard to place any faith in on second start.
€12,000 foal who is a half-sister to top class national hunt stock, Dynaste and Ucello Conti. Leading player for leading bumper trainer and jockey combination.
Casamento filly out of a Fasliyev mare. Cost €7,000 as a yearling. Likely to need the experience here possibly progressing with time.
Stowaway filly out of a Kayf Tara mare. Half-sister to solid national hunt types Hidden Cyclone and Champagne Fever. Stumbled when short of room behind Chasing Abbey on debut but likely to progress here.
Cheap filly by Stowaway out of a Snurge mare. Half-sister to Outlander and Champagne Fever. Promising on debut but likely to bump in to a couple here.
Daughter of Yeats out of a Presenting mare. Half-sister to Dunguib and Yorkhill. Plenty of promise in two starts to date and holds strong place claims.
