A Born to Sea gelding out of a Montjeu mare; he showed promise by making late grounds on debut at Dundalk at the start of this month and should be a lot wiser this time. No issues expected with the switch to turf; one to seriously consider.
Related to winners over jumps and is out of a half-sister to 1m2f Group 3 winner Alayan; he created the impression that he already needs a trip on debut at Cork 11 days ago. One to monitor with an eye on the future.
A half-brother to French middle distance winner Lasspour and out of a half-sister to Group 1 winner Lingari; yard very capable of having ready to rock at the first time of asking. Well worth a betting check.
Cost 60,000 gns as a yearling and has plenty of winners in his bloodlines; could only find the one pace on debut over a mile at Killarney last July and might do better now he's upped in trip. Improvement needed.
Modest efforts in his first two starts as a juvenile but did show a but more on his seasonal return at Limerick last month; upped in trip here and more now required but going the right way and will be interesting in handicaps after this.
Didn't show much on debut and improvement needed from this €5,000 son of Morpheus; yard very much respected but a betting move might be unrewarding to follow on this occasion unless the gelding took plenty from his debut run.
Interesting pedigree and noteworthy her yard is in good form just now. Big improvement needed after her inauspicious debut at Galway last October though.
