Zoffany gelding, cost €16,000 as a yearling. Dam a sister to a winner over further. Not a good sign he's already had a gelding operation and others make more appeal on pedigree.
Galileo colt, brother to three useful types, one of whom a juvenile winner over this trip. Dam a sister to a Group 1 winner over this trip. Yard's debutantes can need the run but plenty to like on paper here.
Galileo colt, brother to a winner over this trip. Dam a Group 3 winning sprinter and half-sister to two Group 1 winners including Hydrangea. Beautifully bred but Sydney Opera House may be first-string here.
Dawn Approach colt, dam a juvenile winner who placed in Group class and half-sister to more pattern level performers. Yard can reveal expectations here.
Bated Breath colt, cost €26,000 as a foal and 72,000 gns as a yearling. Dam a half-sister to a Listed winner. Well beaten on debut at Gowran but given time to recover and may do better here.
Australia colt, cost €140,000 as a yearling. Dam a half-sister to a Group 3 winner and a Listed winner. Makes appeal on pedigree and yard should reveal how he may run here.
Zoffany colt, cost €31,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to five winners. Dam a sister to a Listed winner. Likely to be in need of his debut.
Australia colt, cost 525,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to five winners including Melbourne Cup winner Rekindling. Sure to appreciate the step up in trip from a highly promising Curragh debut. Leading claims here.
