Aussie Rules colt was fourth of five beaten 14½L on debut over 1m½f at Galway seven days ago. Should come on for the run but huge improvement needed.
Some encouragement on debut where he was a never nearer third of nine beaten 8¼L behind an 8L winner who won at Group Three level next time out. Each-way possibilities again here.
$40,000 newcomer by US sire Point of Entry is a half-brother to a 1m turf winner from a US turf family. Trainer has few two-year-olds and not had a winner in recent seasons so best watched.
Dawn Approach colt finished 3¼L behind dead-heat winners on debut at Leopardstown last month. That form as good as any here and with further improvement he should make a bold bid.
€3,000 foal by Most Improved out of ordinary 7f AW winner. Trainer two from 39 with two-year-olds over the last five seasons so unlikely sort first time up.
Exceptionally bred colt by Galileo out of outstanding triple Group-One winning Six Perfections. Brother to three winners (two at Group level). Green on debut where slowly away and sixth. Trainer's juveniles need first run so big improvement likely.
€4,200 yearling newcomer by Big Bad Bob out of a Listed placed 5f-6f winner including at two from a speedy Scandinavian family. 1m trip on debut suggests he hasn't inherited such speed himself.
90,000gns debutant by Camelot is half-brother to three winners including Group Three scorer Telwar. Trainer has his share of first-time two-year-old winners and jockey booking positive so market watch advised.
Trailed throughout on debut at Galway where he was last beaten some 23L. Trainer reaches for blinkers here in attempt to make him focus. Can't make a case for.
Newcomer by Born To Sea cost €25,000 as a yearling. Unplaced dam a half-sister to top-class Cracksman. Trainer has very few two-year-olds but pedigree demands a close watch for the future.
Beaten 12½L and 22L in two races to date. No encouragement to be found and likely the sort for lowly handicaps after this.
