Three-time winner, including at Listed level back in June over 1m at Leopardstown. Third in Group Three and fourth in Group Two since at the same venue set a decent standard here although he does have to give plenty of weight away all round.
Declaration of War colt is a half-brother to very smart winner up to 1m3f Beethoven and 1m1f winner King of The Romans. Winner on debut at Navan but this represents a big step up in class although respected given connections.
1m Leopardstown handicap winner on soft improved on that with second in a Newmarket Listed race before disappointing next at the same level at Navan and not seen since. Hard to overcome such an absence at this level.
1m1f Tipperary maiden winner was well beaten next in a Curragh handicap and tailed off last subsequently in a Gowran Group Three. Short of this level so far.
Well-bred Teofilo filly was a most impressive winner on debut at Leopardstown back in August (1m), winning by 3¼L. Form of that not worked out well but hard not to be taken by the manner so worth a crack at pattern level.
Curragh maiden winner on debut not added to that since although ran a couple of good races last season. Lesser efforts this term in three starts however, particularly last time out so needs first-time visor to work magic.
Galway maiden winner has found Group races beyond her last twice at the Curragh and Leopardstown. This another drop in class but not convinced she's a pattern level filly.
Not won this season but twice placed in Group Three's and only beaten 1L at that level again latest when fourth of 11 at Gowran which followed a neck second in a Listowel Listed race. Form rock-solid for this grade and looks the one to beat.
