€85,000 son of Dream Ahead who was runner-up on debut over this C&D and ran to a similar level when winning on the AW over 5f. This extra furlong will help but improvement likely needed in this company under a penalty.
Cost 2,500 gns as a foal rising to 20,000 gns as a yearling but never featured on debut and remains best watched.
Gelded over the winter after two well-beaten runs and showed the benefit when a much improved third on the AW despite lengthy odds. Drop in trip may help further and looks a leading player.
Yet to beat a horse home in two starts when well beaten at triple figure odds both times. Hard to make a case for.
Showed improvement from debut when third on the fibresand. Bred to go well on that surface and while this extra furlong will only help, he does need to show he can transfer the form to turf.
Daughter of Sakhee's Secret who never raced for Laura Mongan and now makes belated debut for her second trainer. Best watched.
Has had big problems at the start being slowly away, refusing to race and finally swerving badly on her latest start. Has shown nothing to suggest she can be competitive as of yet.
Debutante who cost 42,000gns as a yearling and a half-sister to Priere and Press The Button. Stable a bit quiet at present and likely to do better over further.
