A 29,000 gns foal, £50,000 yearling, Kyllachy gelding. Half-brother to 1m2f-1m4f winner Azzuri. Slowly away and always in the rear when 40/1 on Limerick debut and hard to make any sort of case for at this stage.
Kodiac half-brother to useful 1¼m winner Wasatch Range. Quite an expensive purchase at 105,000 gns but 50/1 and down the field on September's debut and big improvement needed on return.
€55,000 yearling by Zoffany out of a Pivotal mare. Yet to win but placed in six of nine starts to date so certainly has ability and a consistency about him. Suited by drop back to sprinting and best form should see him go close again.
Son of Footstepsinthesand and gelded ahead of debut. Fetched €15,000 as a foal; second foal and a brother to 6f-7f winner Myboyhenry. Market worth a check but likely best watched on debut.
Colt by Tamayuz out of a Ashkalani mare. Cost 45,000 gns as a two-year-old. In rear and no impression on debut but left that behind when a slightly unlucky third at Cork over 7f. Showed speed so one to note now in a sprint.
Kodiac colt, cost £210,000 as a yearling. Plenty of promise last season when second on debut and then tried in the Listed Marble Hill behind Fairyland. Two runs over 7f this season have been well below that and needs drop in trip to bounce back.
By Pivotal out of Group placed dam who won over 7f at two. Not disgraced when running well in defeat in a couple of starts last term but a bit disappointing she failed to improve over this trip on reappearance. Not dismissed but more needed.
Filly by Coach House out of an Acclamation mare. Half-sister to 5f two-year-old winner Kuramathi. Unfancied and well beaten in two runs over this trip at Naas this year and remains easy to overlook.
Filly by Dandy Man out of a Zafonic mare. Cost €11,000 as a yearling. Didn't show a great deal at Fairyhouse over this trip in September and eased down to be tailed off over 1m1f on her return. Hard to see her being involved.
Showed ability in all four starts last year, placed in three and her neck second at Naas sets the standard. Struggled in handicap company on her return and now down in grade and class. Every chance she could bounce back and be a player.
Kodiac filly, cost €60,000 as a yearling. Closely related to German 6.5f/7.7f winner Majestic Colt. Hampered leaving stalls on debut and again green on her second start showing a similar level of ability. Big progress required.
Gale Force Ten filly failed to get involved in four starts for James Barrett including in a claimer in September. No better on season and stable debut in a handicap and although drop back in trip is a plus, it's hard to see her competitive.
