Colt by Dandy Man out of a Pivotal mare. Nothing of note in a couple of disappointing starts here over shorter trips including a 25L defeat earlier this month when finishing 12th of 13 over 6f. Hard to fancy and plenty to prove.
Gale Force Ten colt out of a Mizzen Mast mare. Cost €22,000 as a yearling which dropped to €14,000 as a two-year-old. Half-brother to 6f/7f winner Fons Salera. Best watched on debut.
Had stablemates Shuri and Rehoboth Beach behind when finishing third of 13 on debut. Worth a check in the market given the yard hold a 37% win and place strike rate in mid February at the track in the last three seasons.
€12,000 as a foal. Zoffany gelding out of a Spectrum mare. Brother to 7½f winner Accurate and half-brother to decent 1m1f winner Doctor Geoff. Tongue-tie already fitted on debut.
Havana Gold gelding out of a Dubai Destination mare. Cost 5,000 guineas as a foal. Failed to build on a promising run at Listowel when finishing seventh of 16 beaten 20L in a Tipperary maiden when last seen in October. Others preferred.
Colt by Dawn Approach out of a Kings Best mare. Cost connections 55,000gns as a yearling. Open to significant improvement following a 6L defeat over C&D last month. First-time tongue tie could assist.
April foal by the Aidan O'Brien-trained Power out of a Diamond Green mare. Beat only one home on debut in a 10-runner contest at Thurles in October. Others preferred.
Generally well beaten in a couple of starts at this venue when last seen in October including when finishing seventh of 14 beaten 3½L over 7f. Sure to be of interest when handicapping.
Hood already applied for Gale Force Ten gelding out of a Samum mare. Sister to German 7½f Listed winner Jambalaya. Expected to improve from debut run here.
79-rated five race maiden for previous yard. Not disgraced in a couple of career starts here but possibly best watched on debut for new connections.
Inexpensive filly by Paco Boy out of a Giant's Causeway mare. Well held in three career starts including on sole run here when last seen in August.First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role.
Beaten 10L into second in a 7f maiden at Leopardstown on good-to-firm on debut in July. Heavy ground appeared to be against her at Listowel when last seen in September. Improved effort would not surprise.
Filly by No Nay Never out of a Danehill Dancer mare. Cost 55,000gns as a yearling and will look to develop from a promising sixth of 13 beaten 3L here over C&D earlier this month. Repeat of that form should see her go well.
Second Reserve: Filly by New Approach out of a Pivotal mare. Seventh of nine on two-year-old debut in a Navan Listed contest in October. Could be of interest if making the line-up.
