Zoffany filly kept on into a remote but never nearer sixth on debut at Gowran last month over 1m. Should improve for that race but will need to do so. Yard also run Vhagar so market may be informative.
Newcomer by Lawman cost 10,000gns as a foal and €34,000 as a yearling. Half brother to two sprint winners, both as two-year-olds but trainer none from five with juveniles this year.
Progressed from Tipperary debut (last of 16) when staying on into midfield here last time out. Further step forward needed to be involved in a meaningful fashion.
Twice placed so far including latest second of 14 over C&D where he likely bumped into a very well handicapped horse in a nursery. That form rock solid and clear positive for prospects here which are pretty obvious.
Newcomer by Siyouni cost £40,000 as a yearling out of a French 6f-1m AW winner from a decent family of horses all effective on AW. Trainer none from 18 with two-year-olds so best watched barring market support.
Last of 14 and beaten 22L in a Roscommon maiden on soft ground in August. Had time since and changes surface but would take a giant leap of faith to recommend.
Ninth of 12 in C&D debut but wasn't actually beaten that far despite running too freely. Some promise there and hood now added by top trainer so has place possibilities here in a race lacking depth.
Newcomer by Slade Power cost €30,000 as a yearling half-sister to seven winners including a US Grade Three scorer over 1m. Trainer record with two-year-olds quite ordinary so best watched unless market says otherwise.
Newcomer by Arcano wears is a half-sister to four ordinary winners. Trainer winless with two-year-olds across last five years so best watched.
Fourth over C&D in second start and since twice finished third on turf including when upped to 1m½f last time out. Place claims once again here based on consistent level of form.
Bit of progress in second start at the Curragh but disappointed last time when last of 15 at Leopardstown. Given time since but rates a risky proposition now.
