Generally disappointing until failed by just a nose to score on fifth start on handicap bow at Naas. Favourite and finished fifth (beaten just two lengths) there last time out. Has something to find on official ratings.
Beautifully bred Galileo colt out of English/Irish 1000 Guineas winner. Best effort for Aidan O'Brien when second in Navan 1m5f maiden last autumn. Joined current yard in December and ran well enough in decent Naas event last time.
Casamento gelding with one start to his name when running well enough until fading quickly after 2 out at Hexham last June. Not seen since and likely to find this taxing.
11-race maiden on Flat at up to 1m6f but showed some ability at times. Shaped like a future winner on both starts so far over timber, and was a good third latest at Fairyhouse. Has decent claims in this company.
Showed very little on the level but has hinted she should find a race over timber in four starts so far. Went close at Cork in December and similar display would give here evry chance at this level.
