Five-race maiden on the AW at Dundalk ran well in defeat after missing the break on turf debut in a Limerick maiden over a similar trip. The Invincible Spirit gelding recovered to finish in midfield and will look to improve in this contest.
Colt by Frankel out of a Marju mare. Half-brother to U S 1m/1m½f winner Alsinaafy. Sixth of 17 beaten 12L on debut behind Johnny Drama - declared, 6.0 Roscommon, Monday - at Gowran Park last month. Considered with yard in good form.
Gelding by Vocalised out of a Imperial Ballet mare. Poor standard of effort in a couple of career starts at Southwell and Navan in March. Hasn't shown enough to be of interest.
Gelding by Thousand Words out of a Danehill Dancer. Tailed off on debut at Fairyhouse last month in a 2m maiden hurdle, finishing 21st of 23 at odds of 100/1. Unlikely to be troubling the judge on Flat introduction.
Filly by Dark Angel out of a Galileo mare. Sold for €1,200 at the Goffs sale in November. Improved from debut run when finishing in midfield beaten 5½L in a Limerick 1m maiden last month. Potential improvement once again.
Hit the frame on a couple of occasions from six starts on the AW at Dundalk but has been overwhelmed in a couple of turf starts, even refusing to race at Roscommon in June. Untrustworthy in first-time blinkers.
More Than Ready filly. Half-sister to smart winner up to 8.2f Salai. Looks an interesting recruit for respected connections and market likely to reveal expectations on stable debut.
€15,000 yearling by Raven's Pass out of a Montjeu mare who won over 1m4f. Not disgraced but overall well held in a couple of starts last summer for trainer Martyn Meade. Worth a market check on first start for new yard.
