Full-sister to Circling and Easter Lily, who both gained black type in listed Oaks Trial here. Shaped well when fifth of 20 behind Angelic Light at the Curragh on debut, weakening late having made smooth progress. Sure to improve on bare form.
January foal by Street Sense out of a US 5f winner. Yard 4-40 with juveniles on turf this year, and merits a market check ahead of debut.
Tongue tied after debut, and has found gradual improvement on each start, finishing ½L second of 12 to Lady Marengo in a 6f maiden at Navan last time. Vulnerable to improvers, but holds solid place claims on form.
Full-sister to 1m1f winner Dowhatisay out of a 6f/7f winner. Yard sprang a shock with a 33/1 debutant winner at the Curragh recently, and well capable granted the ammunition.
Homebred by Vocalised out of a maiden who was tried over hurdles. Two of her half-siblings have won around 7f, but others are more compelling in terms of pedigree.
By first-season sire Noble Mission out of a US maiden, herself half-sister to top Hong Kong miler Good Ba Ba. Market will guide, but yard's strike-rate with juveniles is modest.
War Front filly out of multiple 1¼m listed winner Principal Role, from an excellent family. Ticks the right boxes on paper, and one to note in the market on debut.
Yet to build on the promise of her debut at the Curragh (6f) in May, looking a handicap project in subsequent starts. Others preferred again, particularly with this trip looking too sharp.
By Teofilo out of owners' 1m listed winner Hen Night. Dam's previous foals have not come up to expectations, however. Yard also represented by La Shrimp.
Showed ability on debut at Galway (7f) in July, but not built on that in two starts since, and looks one for handicaps.
Half-sister to useful handicapper Moonmeister, and improved a bit on debut when 7½L seventh of 21 to Foxtrot Liv at the Curragh (7f) last time. Drop in trip not ideal, but should have more to offer.
Only beaten ½L on debut at Fairyhouse over 6f back in June on good ground, and pulled too hard when down the field in a listed contest at Leopardstown on Saturday. Should bounce back, and sets a clear standard.
From a family which has served this owner/breeder well, tracing back to the brilliant Marwell. Appeals as a sharp enough sort on breeding, although yard not associated with success in juvenile arena.
War Command half-sister to quirky 2-y-o 7f winner Gift Wrap out of a 2-y-o 6f winner. One of a couple in here for the stable, so market useful, although fitting of visor for debut suggests temperament.
By the same sire as My Laureate, and half-sister to a couple of winners, but once-powerful stable not the force of old, and better known for jumps exploits in any case.
By Zebedee, and the first foal of a 2-y-o 6f winner. Yard's juveniles brought on patiently, and this filly is sure to need the experience.
Improved on debut effort when 7½L sixth of 15 to Operatic Export in a 7f maiden at Leopardstown last time, but needs to step up again to figure.
Has shown a little ability in a pair of 7f events to date, but will only be of interest in low-grade handicaps, for which she'll be eligible after another run.
Like stablemate Kitchen Duty, she's a homebred filly by Vocalised out of a modest maiden. Stable jockey rides, but she makes no great appeal on pedigree despite connections.
Mukhadram half-sister to connections' Railway Stakes winner Beckford out of a half-sister to King George winner Poet's Word. Makes serious appeal on breeding, and of interest if strong in the betting on debut.
