Helmet half-brother to 7f winner Lady Sparkler and 2-y-o 1m winner Capeslew. Price rose to €75,000 earlier this year, and both yard's successes with two-year-olds this year have come with debutants. Holds a Gimcrack entry.
Dragon Pulse half-brother to smart 6f-1m winner Eddie Jock among others, but sales price dropped to just €10,000 when resold earlier in the year, and yard just 1-16 with juveniles this year.
Bred for speed, being by Slade Power out of a 5f winner, but yard not know for success with juveniles (0-36 since 2013), and best watched on debut.
Camacho filly who cost £42,000 as a yearling. Well beaten on 6f debut here, for all that was a stiff introduction, and tongue tied now. Likely to need more time.
Homebred sister to 1m winner Cresendo. Three of yard's four 2-y-o winners this year have come here, so worth a second look, for all a stiffer test will suit in time.
Well bred along sprinting lines, and cost £120,000 as a yearling, so perhaps unwise to judge her on a modest debut effort here, when she did at least show plenty of early dash.
By Burwaaz out of a 5f winner, and showed speed amidst greenness when sixth of 14 to Fulminate in 6f maiden at Fairyhouselast month. Will improve, and not ruled out.
Dandy Man half-sister to Norfolk Stakes winner Prince of Lir and 2-y-o 5f winner Kalagia, out of a useful 5f/6f juvenile winner. Very much takes the eye on pedigree, and likely to play a big part if ready to go.
Zebedee filly out of an unraced mare, and half-sister to 1m½f winner Marmalade N Toast. Others more appealing on pedigree, but yard had a 2-y-o winner at Leopardstown recently, and not underestimated.
Charm Spirit filly who travelled well when 2¼ lengths third of 8 to Fantasy in maiden at Navan last month, and looks sure to do better. Leading claims on form.
