Well held and has finished down the field in a number of desolate displays since May beaten over 26L on each occasion. Hard to fancy on latest evidence.
Pour Moi colt is a half-brother to winner up to 6f Samba Do Brazil and winner up to 7f Pearl Earing. Promising fourth of eight on Killarney debut in May and likely to improve here.
Sea The Stars colt who is taking his time to get his head in front. Beaten favourite in a Tramore maiden last month and may need a smaller field size to be getting off the mark.
Usually races towards the rear in his races before making a late run. Not disgraced in four starts to date and first-time cheekpieces fitted to assist.
Elusive Pimpernel gelding out of a Fantastic Light mare. Tailed off on debut over hurdles at Roscommon before a 37L defeat at Tipperary on Flat debut finishing last of 13.
Canford Cliffs gelding was beaten 19L on debut over 1m2f at Leopardstown and 26L at the Curragh last month over the same trip.
Gelded son of Mastercraftsman and a half-sister to a couple of winners on the Flat. Largely well held on two career starts to date and looks vulnerable here.
Penny slowly dropping for the Galileo colt as he gradually gets the hang of things. Yard back firing and a leading player here.
Gelded son of Thewayyouare out of a Royal Applause mare. Cost 60,000 guineas as a yearling which dropped to 27,000 as a three-year-old. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut.
Gelding by Vocalised out of a Nayef mare. Half-brother to Jim Bolger's Group 1 winner Verbal Dexterity. Market to be informative.
Teofilo colt out of a Kingmambo mare. Half-brother to a couple of runners-up recently, Squire and Thimbleweed. Best watched on debut.
Will look to improve on disappointing debut run at the Curragh last month when finishing 17L adrift of the winner over 1m2f. May find a couple too good.
Son of Choisir out of an Irish River mare. The gelding is a half-brother to recent winners Yes You and Youkan. Watching brief on debut.
Never on terms on debut at the Galway festival last month finishing 24L adrift of the winner Diamond Hill over 1m4f. Market may prove best guide.
Casamento filly out of a Diktat mare. Sixth of 13 never nearer in a 7f maiden at Dundalk on the AW last month before another disappointing run at Roscommon over 1m4f earlier this month.
