Bushranger filly out of a Zafonic mare related to Royal Ascot winner Outback Traveller. Eighth of 12 in maiden at Cork over 1m on debut before finishing last of 15 when last seen in a Listowel 1m maiden in June. Other preferred.
Largely disappointing in three starts for the Aiden O'Brien yard but her second of 13 in a Limerick maiden in June makes her an interesting stable debutante here in first-time tongue-tie.
Not much to shout about in two poor career starts at Down Royal and last month in a Killarney maiden when well beaten 13½L on good ground over 1m6f. Plenty to find here.
€15,000 yearling by Derby winner Motivator half-sister to winners in Scandinavia and Australia. Will need to make dramatic improvement on disappointing debut at the Curragh to play a role here.
Once continuing confusing tactics are resolved the filly may well build on a fine third of 12 beaten 4L on her penultimate start at Killarney in May.
Acclamation filly who deserves a change of luck in running following a number of promising runs since May including a fourth of 15 in a three-year-old handicap at the Galway festival last month on stable debut. Likable type who should be in the mix.
Filly by Finsceal Fior out of a Halling mare. Half-sister to top-earners Cavalryman and Jack Hobbs. Pulled up after a furlong on debut when slowly in to stride at here over C&D last month. Hard to fancy.
Approve filly, picked up for just €1000 as a yearling, she's a half-sister to three winners and should have a bit of speed about her. Well held in two disappointing starts to date and best avoided for the time being.
Red Jazz filly showed plenty of promise in two starts with third placed finishes at both Gowran and Leopardstown before showing further encouragement when second of 18 beaten ¾L over an extended mile at the Galway festival. Leading contender.
Has left plenty to work on following two promising career starts at Gowran Park and Listowel this season. Likely sort on paper.
Well held in her two most recent starts at including a heavy defeat when sent of the favourite of a Listowel maiden over 1m on good ground finishing ninth of 15 beaten 11L. Remains to be seen what improvement first-time visor brings.
Daughter of Teofilo from a good family. Cost €95,000 as a foal and is closely related to Glamorous Approach. Possibly needed debut run at Gowran park last month and worth a market check.
