19:40 Tipperary Thu 25 April 2019
Five race maiden who has yet to get within 12L of winning, and first time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Stablemate of An Bhfuil Tu Reidh, and this gelding has achieved very little in three runs to date.
Gelded son of Sea The Moon who showed some talent when 12¼L fifth of 16 to South Pacific in a 1¼m maiden at Naas 12 days ago. Sure to improve.
Half-brother to French 1m-1m½f winner Akemi (inc at Listed level) and 1m winner Dance On The Hill. Unlucky not to finish closer when seventh of 17 in a 1¼m maiden at Leopardstown early this month. Will progress, and leading claims.
Better effort to date when fifth at the Curragh on debut last September. May have needed the run when mid-field at Cork on return, and bred to appreciate this longer trip, so one to bear in mind.
Cheap purchase who was down the field after a slow start on debut at Cork earlier in the month, and would be a shock winner on that evidence.
Gelding by Mukhadram who was sold very cheaply and has offered little in two starts to date.
Gale Force Ten half-brother to several winners at sprint trips, but showed nothing at Leopardstown on his first racecourse appearance. No reason to expect undue improvement at this trip.
Gelded son of Joshua Tree out of a Daylami mare. Half-brother to three winners, including smart 1¼m/1m1f winner Nausicaa Time. Is hard to enthuse over given his two starts since debut run last month.
By Camelot, the first foal of a 2-y-o 6f winner herself half-sister to smart middle-distance winners Wonder of Wonders and Victory Song. From an excellent family, and respected if market signs are positive.
Finished mid-field at Tipperary in October on his only start as a two-year-old, but never a factor on return at Naas last month, and looks one for handicaps after another run.
Gelded son of Morpheus who improved from an encouraging debut when sixth of 17 to Nickajack Cave in a 1¼m maiden at Cork last time. Not certain to stay further, but not without a chance if he does.
Full-brother to smart 7f/1m winner Cascadian out of UAE Oaks winner Falls of Lora. Caught the eye when mid-field on debut at Leopardstown early this month, and likely to do much better with experience.
Half-brother to connections' dual Group 3 winner Dunboyne Express, out of a half-sister to Oaks winner Love Divine. Yard slow to hit stride this year, but has a good record at this track, so he needs to be monitored in the market.
Better effort to date when 5L eighth of 17 to Tinandali in a 1¼m maiden at Leopardstown last time, and dam (a Group 3 winner at this trip) is a half-sister to Arc winner Zarkava, so improvement expected now tackling 1½m.
Australia filly bred to stay well. Improved from debut when 5L fifth of 14 to Tarnawa in a 1¼m maiden at Leopardstown early this month, and further progress likely granted this stiffer test.
