Newcomer by Salutino out of dam who won over 2m over hurdles. Trainer does well enough with his two-year-olds but this filly likely to excel over further and probably go jumping in time.
€5,000 yearling by New Approach is closely related to 1m1f-1m4f winner Change Of Velocity out of a dam effective at up to 1m2f. Stable jockey prefers Suaimhneach so probably best watched on debut.
Galileo filly out of Irish 1000 Guineas winner Again didn't hint at her illustrious parents ability when 13th of 15 on debut at Leopardstown. Trainer's two-year-olds often need the run so better expected but very much needed also.
800,000gns yearling by Galileo is a sister to St Leger winner Capri. Finished 10th of 13 on debut at Galway but step up to stiff 1m should bring about plenty of improvement and could very easily be in the thick of things today.
30,000gns vendor two-year-old by War Command out of a dam placed over 5f and 6f herself from a speedy family. Not really bred for this far and trainer not known for two-year-old success.
Beaten 20L on debut when fifth of six and even further latest here when 20th of 21, both over 7f. Very hard to make a case for her on that evidence.
€380,000 yearling by Camelot is full-sister to this year's Irish Derby winner Latrobe. Promising debut here over 7f earlier this month when second albeit beaten 10L. Better expected now and this Group One entry will surely relish the extra 1f.
Camelot filly was seventh on debut before eighth latest at Galway when she had Enticed behind. May not confirm placings with that rival who was debuting there and more needed to get involved today.
Last of six at Leopardstown on debut beaten some 25L by Goddess over 7f. Hopefully take a step forward but hard to fancy on that evidence.
Slade Power newcomer is half-sister to an ordinary 1m1f winner out of a dam successful at up to 1m6f. Trainer only had four two-year-olds in last five seasons, none were successful.
Filly by top sire Oasis Dream out of a 9f-1m2f winner including at Listed level from a very good Juddmonte family. One of the most likely debutants on pedigree particularly given her top connections.
Sea the Stars filly out of a Group Three winner at 1m stayed on nicely on debut here over 7f when a never nearer sixth of 13. Trainer's two-year-olds progress from first run and should enjoy extra 1f so good showing expected.
400,000gns Invincible Spirit filly ran a very eye-catching race on debut over 7f at Gowran when she recovered from a terrible start to finish well for fourth. Should make big improvement here granted a better start and leading contender now.
Beat Hollow filly went off 1t 100/1 on debut and was well behind Zagitova when fifth of eight at Cork. Will need to make a huge improvement if she's to be involved here.
