Gelding by Toronado out of a Haafhd mare. Cost 20,000 guineas as a yearling and half-brother Baylagan third in the Listed Criterium du Bequet. Needs to improve on dour debut here at the festival.
€8,000 yearling by Famous Name is half-brother to six winners. Well held and never a factor in a couple of gloomy starts to date.
Full-brother to useful 6f/7f winner Penny Pepper, and half-brother to several other winners. Not disgraced on debut at the Curragh last month but needs to improve here.
Exceed and Excel colt that cost 110,000gns as a yearling. Normal yard improver who is sure to be on the premises in first-time tongue-tie.
Galileo half-brother to the yard's dual middle-distance winner Triplicate. In rear and never nearer in a couple of career spins to date. Expected to improve sooner rather than later.

|T: D K WeldJ: P J Smullen|
Sovereign (8/15), Tinandali (2/1), Excelcius (5/2), Elite Trooper Grey (6/1), Ben Alexander (66/1), Dirk Diggler (100/1)
