Looked to have ability on first two starts but last couple of efforts have been lacking since. Yard 11 from 107 with their two-year-olds this term, netting the team €240,000 in prize money.
Can only have disappointed connections in a series of drab efforts to date. Significant improvement needed on his fourth start.
Not really made the requisite progress in four runs to date with her latest sixth of eight beaten over 8L at Cork coming off a lay-off. Needs to improve to have a say here.
Career best effort in finishing fifth of ten over an extended 6f at The Curragh in August and finishing in a similar position at Naas over 5f last month. Improvement needed with considerable step up in trip.
Bated Breath colt, cost 62,000 gns as a yearling. Beaten over 10L on three career starts to date and first time tongue-tie unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Well held on three gloomy career starts to date and inconceivable first time tongue-tie will produce the required amount of development needed to play a role here.
Held at big prices in three starts so far. Market support would be interesting with a top jockey booked to ride on handicap debut.
Improved on 7f Leopardstown debut when third of 15 at Listowel over the same trip on heavy ground before before a slightly disappointing fifth of 14, 9L adrift of the winner at Cork earlier this month.
Consistent sort over similar trips in a seven race career. Trainer holds a 20% strike rate - three from 15 - and a 40% win and place strike rate with juveniles at the track in October since 2015.
Plenty to like about his last run when racing prominently on outer and soon led before headed over 1f out finishing second of 10 beaten 2L on handicap debut at Navan last month. Each way claims here.
Hasn't progressed as hoped following his second of 12 at the Galway festival. Other look to be progressing at a quicker rate.
Excelebration filly, dam a sprint winner and half-sister to a sprinter. Well down the field in three career starts in spring/summer. Watching brief on handicap debut.
Career best performance on handicap debut in a Naas 1m contest last month. Looks a progressive type at this level and holds place claims at best.
Third of 10 finishing a little over 4L away from the winner on handicap debut at Navan last month. Trainer is 11 from 107 with his two-year-olds this term, netting the team €240,000 in prize money.
By Tamayuz out of an Intikhab mare related to the solid and consistent Dean Ivory-trained gelding Soaring Spirits. Major improvement on handicap debut latest, following a couple of dismal efforts in maidens and can be expected to progress here.
Second Reserve: Well held in maiden company before disappointing in a Naas claimer last month. Others preferred.
