Dark Angel filly, cost €45,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to seven winners and dam a 6f winner, half-sister to multiple Group 1 winner Marling. Improved from debut to when fourth of 15 at Leopardstown last year and interesting on reappearance.
Daughter of Vale Of York was sent off at very long odds in both starts late last year and probably remains best watched on season reappearance.
Filly by Lilbourne Lad out of a Marju mare. Cost €1,000 as a foal. Dam unplaced, half-sister to 7f winner When Not Iff. Never got involved on last month's debut and hard to fancy.
Won a maiden hurdle back in 2017 but was having only her second turf start when making little impression over 1m4.5f last month. That was a poor effort and hard to make a case for.
Filly by Power out of a Action This Day mare. Cost just €800 as a yearling. Sent off 100/1 and beaten too far out when tailed-off on her March AW debut. Remains best watched.
Daughter of Power remains a maiden and has failed to get anywhere near in five starts to date. Tailed off on reappearance and stable debut and hard to make any sort of case for.
Daughter of Rajj who improved from debut when second at Dundalk over 7f, but struggled in Listed company at Navan next time last year. Returned with promise when second and clear of the third on reappearance and sets the standard.
Daughter of Morpheus out of a Champs Elysees mare. Dam unraced half-sister to 5f winner Miss Mulberry. Made no impression in both starts so far this year and hard to fancy.
Fifth foal; sister to winners Minding, 6f-1m4f inc 2yo/Group 1 inc 1,000 Guineas & Oaks and Kissed By Angels, 1m Group 3. Exceptional pedigree and although well beaten on debut, leading stable can leave their first run well behind. One to note.
Daughter of Lope De Vega and an 8th foal; half-sister to four winners including Listed scorer King Of Arnor. Looked like she would improve a lot from her debut after being slowly away and while this may prove tough again, could do better.
Daughter of Mastercraftsmen; a 12th foal; half-sister to five winners. Makes debut over a realistic distance and for powerful connections. Likely type on paper and one to note in the market.
Filly by Pour Moi out of a Teofilo mare. Dam was a winner on the AW between 1m4f and 2m Sister to winners Rigoletta and Pirolo. Not disgraced when meeting trouble on last month's debut but big improvement and further needed.
Mastercraftsman filly out of a lightly-raced maiden. Made little impression in three starts last year and hard to fancy on stable and season debut.
War Command half-sister to several winners, including useful 7f-1¼m winner Miss You Too. Sent off 66/1, always behind and tailed-off on last month's debut. Hard to make any sort of case for.
Daughter of Vocalised; a third foal; sister to 7f 2yo winner Verbal Dexterity (Group 1 winner). Market moves should be noted although leading stable are quiet at present.
Filly by Kingman out of a Forty Niner mare. Closely related to 7f and 1m Listed winner One Spirit and 7f victor Some Spirit. Not disgraced on debut and while plenty more needed, progress wouldn't be a surprise.
First reserve. Camelot filly is closely related to Group 3 winner Ballybakca Lady. Sent off 66/1 on last month's debut when always out the back and making little impression. Easy to overlook.
