€12,000 as a foal. Zoffany gelding out of a Spectrum mare. Ran well in defeat here over 1m last month. Worth a market check on handicap debut stepping markedly up in trip.
Gelded son of Canford Cliffs out of an unraced half-sister to useful 2-y-o 1m winner Argumentative. Needs to improve on a couple of dismal efforts last season and an 11L defeat at Navan last month. More needed.
Will be looking to build on his third of 17 beaten 5L at Navan last month. Yard in good form boast a solid and consistent 60% win and place strike rate with their runners at the track in the last three seasons in April.
Will have disappointed connections in a Navan 1m2f handicap last month finishing 32L adrift of the winner, Cuban Hope. Trainer has a rigid 45% win and place strike rate in this month at this track in the last couple of seasons.
Nothing of note in a number of starts last year and could only finish 13th of 18 at Cork earlier this month. Yard have a 45% win and place strike rate at this venue in the last two years with his runners in this month.
Dandy Man filly out of a Dutch Art mare. Improved on first start of the year when making headway 1f out over 1m finishing third of ten on handicap debut last month. Should be a leading contender in this company.
€11,000 Dream Ahead filly out of a 7f winner. Eight race maiden but ran well in defeat on sole start here over 7f in October finishing seventh of 12 beaten 4¼L. Hard to fancy in first-time visor.
Big Bad Bob colt who cost €11,000 as a yearling. Well beaten and no impression in four career starts at Ayr last season and finished tailed off on seasonal debut over 1m here on seasonal debut earlier this month.
Cheap yearling purchase by Foxwedge out of a Selkirk mare. Needs to improve on seasonal debut eighth of 18 beaten 7½L at Cork earlier this month.
