Completed just once from four starts in point-to-points. Drop in trip looks likely to suit but probably best watched on Rules debut.
Unraced son of Central Park bought for €11,000 as a three-year-old. Wears a hood and tongue tie on racecourse debut.
Impressive point-to-point winner on yielding-to-soft ground at Taylorstown at the end of April. Represents a top yard and likely to prove hard to beat on Rules debut.
Unraced Geordieland gelding sold for €7,000 as a three-year-old. Half-brother to a couple of winners and worth a check in the market on debut.
Promising third over an extended 2m in a bumper on debut at Galway (good) recently. Likely to run well once more.
Stepped up on debut effort when finishing a close fourth at Down Royal (2m, good) in May. Failed to replicate that effort subsequently however.
Fair third on good ground in a C&D bumper last month. Bit to find with Greenandwhitearmy on that form and others hold stronger claims.
Unraced mare by Whitemore's Conn and a half-sister to dual winner The Mulcare Rover. Likely to improve for the experience.
Unraced daughter of Presenting and a full-sister to winner Birch Vale. Represents a leading stable and is one to note on racecourse debut.
Well held in a couple of bumpers and a maiden hurdle so far and others make more appeal following a 30L defeat at Galway (yielding-to-soft) recently.
