Off the mark for connections at the third time of asking in a Roscommon Median auction contest last September and well tried and consistent since. Looked as though he'd improve for his reappearance and conditions are ideal.
Dark Angel colt that cost 180,000gns as a yearling. Has shown plenty of ability in three maiden starts, running to a very consistent level and gaining a deserved latest win. Should have more to offer on season and handicap debut.
Dundalk maiden winner over this trip last month and has subsequently finished a good fourth in two competitive big field handicaps. A return to this trip should suit and this looks a good opportunity to return to winning ways.
Kodiac colt, cost 160,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to seven winners including three Group winners. Showed a game attitude to get off the mark on his fourth start and has been given a fair mark for handicap debut. Likely to be involved.
Won a Down Royal maiden in June last year and looked as though he was improving when third on reappearance at Dundalk. However disappointed at the same track over this trip subsequently and needs more in first-time cheekpieces.
Winner of a weakish Leopardstown two-year-old maiden over 6f in June last year but highly disappointing on season and handicap debut. Remains best watched after such a poor run following an absence.
Camelot half-brother to French 1000 Guineas third Rahiyah. Ran well in defeat in first five starts but proved a very disappointing favourite on latest effort. Drop back in trip should help but has a bit to prove now.
Kept on well for sixth of 18 in a 7f Leopardstown handicap in second race for this yard but disappointing either side in stronger company. Proving inconsistent and others preferred.
Last Year's Winner
Giga White (7/4), Ferretti (10/3), Boston Bruin (4/1), Cosmic Horizon (8/1), Crockford (10/1), Kafu (12/1), Barend Boy (14/1), Parkers Hill (16/1)
