Scat Daddy filly, cost $150,000 as a yearling and €200,000 as a Breeze-up purchase. Half-sister to a winner and dam a winner and half-sister to two Grade 3 winners over middle distances. Yard can ready one and warrants respect.
Galileo filly, dam a Group 3 winner as a juvenile over 6f. Looked green on debut but their juveniles usually take a huge step forward from their first outing and yard are starting to hit form again after a quiet patch by their standards.
Vocalised filly, sister to a 1m winner. Well beaten on debut at the Curragh but the step up to this sort of trip ought to see her to better effect.
Galileo filly, sister to two useful sorts, one a Listed winner. Dam a winner over this trip as a juvenile and went on to win Irish 1,000 Guineas. Yard's debutantes often need the run but she's beautifully bred and any market support worth noting.
Galileo filly, sister to five winners including three Group performers, notably Gustav Klimt. Half-sister to a Group 1 winner and dam a Listed winner. Took a step forward at the Curragh on third start and yard in better form now. Leading claims.
Big Bad Bob filly, sister to a juvenile winner. Half-sister to a a juvenile Listed winner and dam placed in Group company. Makes some appeal on paper and market can reveal expectations. Draw not ideal.
Dark Angel filly, half-sister to seven winners, largely over similar trips. Dam a juvenile winner who stayed this far and half-sister to multiple Group 1 winner Marling. Fascinating contender on debut.
Zoffany filly, cost €155,000 as a yearling. Dam a juvenile winner over this trip and half-sister to three Group winners. Yard can ready a debutante and this filly warrants respect here.
Olympic Glory filly, cost 45,000 gns as a foal and €85,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to five winners including two Group winners and a Listed winner (two as juveniles). Dam a winner over this trip. Well bred and market can reveal expectations.
Vocalised filly, half-sister to two winners over further. Dam a 1m4f winner. May be seen to best effect over further than this.
Canford Cliffs filly, half-sister to a juvenile winner over this trip. Dam a half-sister to two Group 3 winning juveniles, one over 7f. Improved from debut when third of 21 at the Curragh last time and experience over many of these gives her claims.
Camacho filly, cost €13,000 as a yearling. Sister to winning sprinter and half-sister to three sprint winners. Dam a juvenile winner over this trip and half-sister to a US Grade 2 winner. Sent off a huge price for debut and showed little.
Born To Sea filly, half-sister to a hurdles winner and dam a half-sister to multiple Group 1 winner. Well beating 16 of 21 at the Curragh on debut and would need to leave that effort well behind to have any say here.
Alhebayeb filly, cost €26,000 as a Breeze-up purchase. Half-sister to seven winner including a Listed winner as a juvenile. Showed little on debut but produced a better effort when third at Gowran last month. Will need to improve again.
Elzaam filly, cost €7,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to a juvenile winner over 7f. Some improvement from debut to second start but it's likely she will do better when switched to handicaps.
