Remains a touch high in the weights at present but was given a tough ask when finishing last twice in tougher races. Has needed a run previously and best watched following a break.
Cost 230,000 gns as a yearling and made a winning debut last season. Yet to add to that in five starts since but has taken a step forward the last twice and is bred to appreciate this extra distance. Rates a leading contender.
Back to last winning mark but has been disappointing in three runs since and would likely want quicker ground than this. Others appeal more.
Last win came in May of 2017 and remains a hard horse to win with and an awkward ride. However remarkably consistent and can be thereabouts again.
Won twice before moving into handicap company and has run to a similar level in three starts since. Plenty of stamina in her pedigree so could improve upped in distance.
Sea The Stars and a full-brother to Group 3 winner Raheen House. Plenty of promise when runner-up on his second start last year but well beaten on reappearance. Gelded since but improvement required on handicap debut.
