Best effort to date when second of 10 to Isle of Innisfree in a C&D maiden early this month, and may have found the run coming too soon when a respectable third at Listowel last time. Will take all the beating if back to best.
Son of Slade Power who was well held on debut, but showed more when 8½L eighth of 11 to Giga White in maiden at Gowran. Needs this for a handicap mark.
Gelded son of Requinto who was sent off a big price and failed to beat a rival at Bellewstown last month.
No Nay Never half-brother to 1m1f-1m3f winner Chalcot, and cost €300,000 as a yearling. Holds an entry in the Futurity at Doncaster, and concern that this trip will prove too sharp on debut.
Down the field in a couple of maiden at the Curragh over 6f, and looks one for handicaps after another outing, with this drop in trip not looking a positive.
Slade Power half-sister to six winners at a variety of trips. Slowly away when well beaten at the Curragh on last month's debut, and another who may need plenty more time.
Just an ordinary pedigree, and needs to improve markedly on 7¼L sixth of 13 to Nitro Boost in maiden at Bellewstown, but didn't shape badly there, and is likely to do much better in time.
Bred to be a sharp sort at 2 yrs, and although she was sent off at big odds on debut at the Curragh last month, she showed plenty of speed before fading into mid-division. Could sneak a place if building on that.
