Two promising AW efforts at Newcastle (both 1m, Tapeta) so far. Entitled to respect after that, now making his turf debut.
Left Sir Michael Stoute for this yard without a run and showed little on debut in a Doncaster bumper last month. Tongue-tied now, and can only watch on first run in this code.
Decent level of ability in his first three starts, and was a 1L fourth in Listed company (1m2f, good) in France. Well below that level in two AW runs since being gelded. Drops in trip with cheekpieces on. Can't rule out, but needs to bounce back.
Moderate performer who is 0-19 and impossible to fancy in this line-up on what he has achieved, unless he can kick on to greater heights on his second start post-wind surgery.
Made a promising debut at Gowran Park (1m1½f, good to firm) in June, but well held next time at Cork. Has since left Dermot Weld for this trainer, and looks worth a market check on his stable debut.
Moderate mare who has been well beaten in most starts and despite the inside draw, it will be a surprise if she makes any impact.
£1,000 yearling. Third foal. Half-sister to 2m hurdle winner Oishin, out of 1m AW winning half-sister to five winners, mainly as juveniles. Stable in reasonable form, so precautionary market check prudent.
Showed her best form in France last year on soft ground, so has a bit to prove on good to firm. Changed hands for €19,000 in February and now makes debut for this trainer. No surprise to see her get very competitive.
