Built on the promise of his second run at Galway when winning at Roscommon over 7f (soft) before unsurprisingly finding a Leopardstown Group Two beyond him next (1m). Should stay and has to be considered despite a big weight.
Won a claimer at Leopardstown on penultimate start over 7f and well fancied for subsequent handicap where he was only sixth of seven but beaten less than 2L. Should last 1m and gets 1lb back so each-way potential here.
Gowran Park winner over 7f was placed in a couple of handicaps before struggling next over 1m on very testing ground. Better latest in a claimer when second but handicap mark still looks high enough.
Improved on first two efforts with third at Tipperary over 7½f and filled same spot next at Dundalk over 7f (AW). By Galileo so should get 1m and has to be of interest on handicap debut here for all-conquering yard.
Seven race maiden kept on well four fourth of 17 on handicap debut at Naas (1m) before filling same spot latest in a Dundalk maiden back to 7f. One of three for the stable and has claims especially in first-time cheekpieces.
Only beaten 1L latest at 40/1 when fourth in a claimer after two fair runs in maidens. Possibly improving based on that but will need another step forward here.
Navan maiden winner over 5½f kept on for second over 6½f on handicap debut here last week. Upped by 2f here but pedigree wise she should get 1m at least so could well be suited and big danger to all if she does stay.
Not really made the requisite progress in three runs to date with her latest last of 11 at Bellewstown hinting that things were amiss and absence backs that up. Easy to oppose.
