4,700 gns yearling by Railway Stakes winner Lilbourne Lad out of a dam who was a 7f AW winner. Related to a couple of winners from 7f-1m and debuts for a yard with few first time out two-year-old winners.
Slade Power volt could never get on terms on debut at Naas over 7f last month eventually finishing 10th of 16. Drops in trip but didn't see enough first time out to recommend him.
Retained by the vendor for €16,000 as a yearling. By first season sire Bungle Inthejungle out of an unraced half-sister to a smart two-year-old. Trainer one from eight with two-year-olds this season and that filly won at the third time of asking.
67,000 yearling by Charm Spirit made some late headway into 10th of 14 on debut at Dundalk (AW) over 6f last month. Should have learnt a bit so better is expected although a place may be best hope.
Seven-time placed filly including in all bar one of her eight tries in maidens. 6f seems to suit best and although she's vulnerable to an improver she does set the standard and a pretty useful one at that.
Lethal Force newcomer is a half-sister to an Italian 1m-1m2f winner out of a 1m6f winning dam. Likely need more time and distance than this.
Improved in second start when fourth of 13 at Bellewstown (5f) but couldn't build on that next when upped to 7f at Naas (ninth of 12). May fare better when switched to handicaps.
Well bred for middle distances but drops in distance again following latest fifth of 21 in a 7f Curragh maiden after third on debut at Bellewstown over 1m. Too keen latest so sharper test may be to suit and her claims are clear here.
A pair of Navan maidens, both over 5f in the Spring represented promising form, especially the latest running on fourth of 13. Absence since a question mark but if she's ready she ought to be involved with 6½f likely to suit better.
Elzaam newcomer is a sister to a 5f two-year-old winner and half-sister to a 5f-1m2f winner in Denmark. Primarily jumps yard had just six juveniles runners in last five years, all unplaced.
Zoffany filly ran well for a ling time on debut at the Curragh over 7f when 10th of 23 after fading late on. Drop to 6½f on that evidence may be beneficial so she could be set to go well here.
Detached at Fairyhouse on debut, eventually finishing 13th of 15 and ran out here next time out. Looks a hazardous proposition now.
Attained a decent level of form through three starts with sixth at Leopardstown and seventh at Naas lately in big fields showing some ability. Plenty more to find here nevertheless and handicaps may suit better.
