Bushranger gelding out of a Royal Applause mare. Half-brother to Sir Maximilian and Outback Traveller. Well down the field on debut on the AW at Dundalk. Tough ask.
Gelded son of Alternation out of a Unbridled's Song mare. Plenty of USA progeny in the line including Arrogate. Nothing of note in three starts to date and best left for the moment.
Has failed to beat any of his 20 rivals home in a couple of career starts to date and not seen on a racecourse since October. First-time tongue-tie unlikely to make any difference.
Roderic O'connor gelding. Half-brother to several winners including useful winner up to 7f Reckless Endeavour. Made a pleasing debut over 7f at Gowran when only just touched off in second back in June before never a factor at the Curragh last month.
Well behind in two career starts and first-time tongue-tie inconceivable to produce the required amount of development needed to play a role here.
Shamardal colt made favourite for a very ordinary Roscommon maiden on debut over 7½f but could only manage a well beaten fourth of 15. Worth a market check on second start.
Kodiac colt, cost £150,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to a Group 3 winner who won over 6f and dam a half-sister to a Group 2 winner. Soon discarded by Mark Johnston/Hamdam Al Maktoum in to the hands of owner/trainer.
Appears to be improving with every run highlighted when posting a career best in a 1m Killarney maiden last month. Open to more improvement.
€28,000 yearling, Clodovil filly. Half-sister to minor North American winners by E Dubai and Orientate. Lightly raced late developing filly with early form not warranting support here.
Filly by Big Bad Bob out of a Marju mare. Dam unraced half-sister to 7f two-year-old Group 3 winner Tell Dad. Watching brief on debut.
Not disgraced in three career starts to date all coming last month. Will need to raise overall performance to play a hand in the finish here.
Nothing of note in three dismal displays over a variety of trips since making her debut last month. Plenty to prove at present.
A daughter of Power and a half-sister to the useful Flying Fairies, she was sixth of eight at The Curragh on debut. Improved on her first two starts when running Lost Treasure to 2¾L in a 6f Curragh maiden last month.
Filly by The Carbon Unit out of a High Chaparral mare. Half-sister to multiple winner between 1m3f and 1m6f Carbon Dating. Best watched on debut.
Daughter of Rip Van Winkle who deserves a change of luck following a number of promising runs since March bar her hampered run here when last seen in June. Place claims.
