Career best effort when finishing runner-up at Naas (6f, good-to-firm) on his penultimate outing and a decent effort in similar conditions subsequently. Interesting runner once more.
Stepped up markedly on debut when beaten 1L into third in a 6f contest at Fairyhouse (good-to-firm) last month. One for the shortlist in this contest.
Unraced son of Compton Place bought for €28,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to multiple winning sprinter Suitcase 'N' Taxi and is an interesting runner on debut.
Held in two starts so far. Beaten 11L over 6f at Fairyhouse (good-to-firm) last time out and others hold stronger claims.
Slowly away when making his debut in 6f maiden at Naas (good-to-firm) just over a month ago. Likely to have improved for the experience.
Run to a good level of form so far including when finishing runner-up over C&D on good-to-firm ground at the end of June. Returning from a break and likely to play a leading role.
Unraced son of Slade Power sold for £15,000 as a yearling last September. Dam unraced and worth a check in the market on debut.
Improved on debut effort when finishing fourth of nine at Down Royal (5f, good-to-firm). Hood worn for the first time that day is absent for this event.
Unraced gelded son of Zebedee bought for €11,500 as a yearling last autumn. Dam was a winner over 5f and market support would be notable on debut.
Unraced son of Dark Angel bought cheaply for €5,500 at the breeze-up sales in May. Probably best watched on debut.
Shaped as if a drop in trip would suit when finishing down the field in a 6f maiden at Naas (good-to-firm) on debut in June. Interesting to see how she fares.
Showed up well for a long way prior to weakening in a 6f maiden at Leopardstown (good-to-firm) on debut. Interesting to see how she fares down in trip.
Unraced daughter of Dandy Man out of a middle-distance winning mare. Likely to improve with time and probably best watched on debut.
Unraced daughter of Battle Of Marengo bought for €3,000 as a yearling last September. Worth a check in the market on debut.
