Improving with racing and broke his maiden at Roscommon (7f, good-to-firm) a month ago. One for the shortlist stepping up in grade.
Leopardstown (7f, good-to-firm) winner in June and not beaten far in Group 2 company subsequently. Return to this trip looks likely to suit.
Placed on both starts so far most recently over 7f at Galway (yielding) at the end of last month. Stepping up markedly in grade.
Comfortable winner of a 7f maiden at Naas (good-to-firm) a month ago. Stepping up in class and interesting to see how she fares on this occasion.
Well held when making her debut in a 6f maiden at The Curragh (good-to-firm) last month. More needed if she's to take this contest.
Placed on all four starts including when second in a 21 runner maiden at The Curragh (7f, good-to-firm) last time out. Worth a check in the market.
Narrow winner of a Fairyhouse (6f, good-to-firm) maiden a month ago. Held in a Group 3 contest subsequently and dropping in grade.
