Sea The Stars gelding, cost €28,000 as a yearling. Brother to a winner over a similar trip and half-brother to three more winners. Dam a half-sister to a Grade 1 winner over an extended 1m. Interesting contender if ready to go on return here.
Galileo colt, brother to a Group 1 winner who was the dam of 2,000 Guineas winner Saxon Warrior. Shaped well when sixth of 18 on sole start last year, beautifully bred and expected to improve plenty for that on return here.
Well beaten on both starts at Dundalk so far and he would have to find a huge amount of improvement for the step up in trip on his return.
Has shaped okay in two career starts to date. Interesting to see what the market makes of him on return on first start since a gelding operation for a new trainer.
Sea The Moon gelding, cost €90,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to seven winners including two Pattern level performers. First time hood and a gelding operation prior to debut both not a good sign and others rate as likelier winners.
Teofilo colt, half-brother to a winner and dam a Group 3 winner who is a half-sister to Group 1 winner Cape Cross. Fascinating debutante but trainer's newcomers often come on markedly for the experience.
Anodin gelding who improved from debut at Ascot when third of 13 at Salisbury on final start for Amanda Perrett. Cost 28,000 gns subsequently and interesting to see what the market makes of him on return with Keane booked to ride.
Shown nothing in two starts to date, most recently when last of 14 at Dundalk in February. Makes no appeal on return stepped up in trip here.
Barely beat a rival home in two starts last year. Gelded subsequently and there's a small chance the step up in trip could help but he hardly appeals as any sort of betting proposition.
Sea The Moon colt out of a King's Best mare. Finished ahead of stablemate Swelltime on debut at Tipperary in October and gave the impression he would come on for the run but ultimately well beaten and needs marked improvement.
Dawn Approach colt, half-brother to a winning sprinter. Showed very little on debut, pushed along from halfway and finished last of nine. May improve but hard to fancy.
Consistent in maiden company last year and in the process of running a nice when brought down at Leopardstown last week. Live player if he's no worse for that experience but Moore seemingly prefers stablemate Barbados.
Finished behind re-opposing stablemate Saw The Sea at Tipperary in October on his only start to date. Gelded since and market the best guide on his return to action here stepped up in trip.
Well beaten last week at Leopardstown when 13th of 14. Needs to have learnt a huge amount in a short amount of time to have any chance in this affair.
Galileo filly, cost €320,000 as a yearling. Dam a Group 3 winner. This looks a suitable test for debut but her trainer's runners often come on markedly for the experience. Market should reveal more.
No Nay Never filly, cost 17,000 gns as a foal and €11,000 as a yearling. Failed to beat a rival home in last June's debut and not much better when 12th of 15 at Cork last week. More needed.
