Sulamani mare, cost £1,100 as a yearling. Dam a bumper winner. Doesn't appeal as a likely type here and others hold stronger claims.
Jeremy mare, cost €2,000 as a foal. Half-sister to a 2m1f winner and dam a sister to two winners over further. Only narrowly denied on her debut at Limerick on Boxing Day. Makes her debut for new yard here and likely to be hard to beat.
Dubai Destination mare. Dam a point-to-point winner and winner over hurdles, a half-sister to a bumper winner. Useful pedigree but showed very little at Huntingdon on debut last year. More needed.
Linda's Lad mare, cost €4,000 as a three-year-old. Half-sister to two point-to-point winners and French hurdle winner. Dam a half-sister to seven winners. Runner-up in a point-to-point and entitled to need this on return but not entirely ruled out.
Schiaparelli filly, dam a sister to point-to-point winner and half-sister to two bumper winners who stayed further and a 3m winning hurdler. Beaten a long way on debut at Fakenham but there was some market support. May do better here.
Shirocco filly, half-sister to two winners including a bumper winner. Dam a bumper, hurdles and chase winner. Yard do well in this sphere but she struggled on debut at Sedgefield when a tailed off seventh of 11. May improve here.
Universal filly, half-sister to a point-to-point winner and dam a winner in point-to-points and sister to a bumper/hurdle winner. May need further and others look more likely.
Shirocco filly, dam a 2m hurdle winner and half-sister to some useful Flat sprinters. Positive jockey booking (his only ride on this card) and it's worth seeing what the market makes of her here.
