Charm Spirit colt out of a Jeremy gelding. Yard one from six with thier AW juveniles this year and market likely to be best guide.
Bay colt by Alhebayeb out of a Cadeaux Genereux mare. Cost €10,000 as a yearling. Yard one from six with thier AW juveniles this year and this youngster has struggle in a couple of career starts to date.
Nothing of note in some drab performances to date. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Son of Helmet purchased for 25,000 gns at the sales last October. Half-brother to a winning sprinter in France. Last of 11 over 7f on debut at the Galway festival.
April foal by Holy Roman Emperor out of a Distorted Humor mare. In interesting ownership and yard boast a 44% win and place strike rate here around this time of year.
Re-sold 26,000gns yearling by Mizzen Mast out of a Cape Town mare. Yard 0-14 with juveniles this term. Watching brief on debut.
€40,000 Elzaam colt out of an unraced mare. Third of 23 on a promising debut at the Curragh in August. Expected to improve here for yard that have a 52% win and place strike rated in early/mid October at the track.
Colt by Dandy Man out of a Sakhee's Secret mare. Yard yet to hit the frame with 11 runners since the turn of the year with their two-year-olds on the the AW.
Born To Sea colt cost connections €18,000 at the sales last year. Sixth of 16 when not disgraced on debut in a Naas maiden last month. Plenty of improvement needed here.
Colt by Holy Roman Emperor out of a Pivotal mare. January foal who cost €16,000 as a yearling. Possibly ran a little too keen on debut earlier this month when not unbacked at Naas. Worth another market check.
Thewayyouare gelding out of a Peintre Celebre mare. Yard two from 22 with their juveniles on turf but are having their first runner on AW this term.
Charm Spirit colt, cost €30,000 as a foal, 28,000 gns as a yearling and €11,000 as a Breeze-up purchase. Promising runs on all three starts including one here over C&D last month. Rates a leading contender.
