Six-race maiden, unable to show any signs of breaking duck in couple of spins around here when last seen in December. Hard to place any faith in.
Filly by Lilbourne Lad out of a Marju mare. €1,000 as a foal. Dam unplaced, half-sister to 7f winner When Not Iff. Market likely to be the best guide on debut.
Filly by Dream Ahead out of a Danehill mare. Fourth foal. Sister to Listed winner Making Light. Will have disappointed connections in a couple of initial career starts this here over 1m. Yard in good form and has claims dropping in trip.
Vale of York filly from family of top-class Tenby. Well held on both starts to date and hard to fancy until showing signs of ability.
Sixth of 15 well beaten 8¼L on seasonal debut last month. Yard have a solid 40% strike rate in this month at this venue in the last three seasons. Must rate as a leading player making polytrack debut.
€36,000 fourth foal. Half brother to 7f winner Lytham St Annes. Dam won over 6f. Nothing of note in a couple of dismal career starts to date this month with no signs of imminent improvement on the horizon.
Colt by Exceed And Excel out of a Street Cry mare. Cost €100,000 as a yearling (80,000 guineas as a two-year-old. Dam a winner over 1m and on the AW over 1m2f. Best watched on introduction unless market suggests otherwise.
Gale Force Ten gelding out of a Samum mare. Sister to German 7½f Listed winner Jambalaya. Nothing of note in two career starts to date and unlikely to play a part in the finish in this line-up.
Son of Canford Cliffs out of a Magic Ring mare. Cost €17,000 as a yearling. No impression and struggling before half-way on a disappointing debut run at Down Royal when last seen in September.
Morpheus filly, dam a half-sister to a 5f winner. No market support when only 13th of 15 over 7f at Naas on debut last month; needs to leave that run behind.
