Cost €59,000 as a yearling by Starspangledbanner out of a Showcasing mare. Well beaten on debut but improved when runner-up at Tipperary and then fourth at Listed level. Quicker ground to contend with and this will likely require plenty more.
No Nay Never filly out of a Gulch mare. Cost €52,000 as a yearling and following a slow start made eye-catching late progress to finish fourth in a C&D maiden on debut. Should only improve but this is a huge ask.
Daughter of War Front; a sixth foal, sister to sprint winner Most Gifted and a half-sister to four winners including Listed placed Galatea. Looks the stable's second string on debut behind So Wonderful but worth a check in the betting.
Dawn Approach filly out of a Mr Greeley mare. Dam maiden from 6f - 1m2f and out of half-sister to US two-year-old 1m Grade 3 winner Got The Last Laugh. Improved nicely from debut third to go close at Navan. Up in trip and this looks a tough ask.
Karakontie filly, shaped well on debut when third here but improved to finish a Listed third in the First Flier Stakes. Luckless in the run on both starts and this extra furlong will help. Leading hope for stable that has won last two renewals.
War Front filly out of an Empire Maker. Dam US Grade 1 winner, half-sister to US stakes victor Coutier and Hofburg. Made a winning debut when just edging out So Wonderful over this C&D. Defied greenness there and should only improve. Leading player.
War Front filly out of a Kingmambo mare. Sister to winners Antilles and Dramatically. Sent off favourite on debut when narrowly headed late by Peace Charter. Looked physically as though she'd benefit for the outing and likely to go close again.
No Nay Never filly related to three middle-distance winners and a juvenile who scored over a mile. Runner-up in two AW maidens back in April when short-priced favourite both times. This rates a bit step up in class and others preferred.
