Requinto colt. Brother to useful 7f/1m winner Bigwood. Dam 7f-1m winner. Trainer amongst winners recently, worth betting check.
Zoffany colt, cost €40,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to three winners, though nothing in juvenile starts at Curragh and Gowran Park to create impression he'll win this.
Son of Intello and a half-brother to high class filly Emulous among others. Appeared to be coming with strong challenge on debut at Naas (1m, good) in September only to stumble badly and forfeit all chance. Compensation may be in store.
Colt by Rip Van Winkle out of a Shamardal mare. Has looked in need of the experiences so far at Gowran and Cork in and around the mile trip. May need more time.
€52,000 yearling, Raven's Pass gelding makes some appeal on breeding and may come on for this experience. Yard 1-17 with three-year-old's so far.
Elzaam half- brother to smart 6f-1m winner Capt Chaos. Better effort at Gowran Park (7f, soft) in maiden sporting first-time tongue strap (discarded) last time. May be able to build on that effort.
Gelded son of Footstepsinthesand out of a Rock Of Gibraltar mare. Cost connections €60,000 as a yearling. Pleasing start in Limerick maiden (7f, good to soft; 25-1) recently and prospects of going well again.
Home-bred Vocalised colt out of a Galileo mare. Brother to 1m-1m6f winner Cimeara. Improved on third start to be close second in Gowran Park maiden over this trip 12 days ago and should again have a leading say.
Already gelded son of Zebedee, sent off 50-1 on debut at Gowran Park recently and made some pleasing late ground into fifth of 16. Should have more to offer now.
Daughter of Alhebayeb cost €11,000 as a yearling; a third foal and half-sister to English Pale. Second runner in here for Gavin Cromwell and must build on Gowran Park debut (15th of 16).
Dragon Pulse filly. Half-sister to several winners, including smart 1m winner Regulation amongst others. Well worth a market check on first start.
Finished fifth of 15 in maiden at Limerick (1m, good to soft; 11-4) 20 days ago, should build on that run with tongue strap added now.
The Carbon Unit filly. Dam 6f winner who stayed beyond a mile. Unlikely to be the answer first time out, seemingly.
Daughter of Es Que Love, showed bits and pieces of form in maidens last year without looking any way progressive. Back from a layoff, yard in good form and needs a look.
