Eight-race maiden but well tried last year which included a fourth in the Marble Hill Stakes and an eighth in the Coventry Stakes. Sent off at odds of 50/1 on seasonal debut in a Group 3 contest earlier this month. Could be a danger in this company.
Colt by Kodiac out of a Royal Applause mare. Cost €50,000 as a foal. Brother to 6f/7f winner Adaay. Yard one from 23 with their three-year-olds and best watched on debut.
Showed little when beaten 26L over 1m on debut in March before finishing a promising third of 20 beaten 4¾L in a Naas 6f maiden last month. Open to significant improvement.
Gelded for debut by Elzaam out of a Barathea mare. Driven from half-way on debut in a Naas maiden when last seen in March. Hard to fancy and plenty to prove.
Gelding by Frozen Power out of a Bushranger mare. Dam unraced half-sister to 5f/6f AW two-year-old winner Hardy Blue. Yard yet to kick in to gear this season.
Big prices and beaten a long way on all three starts so far on the AW at Dundalk and on seasonal debut at Naas last month. One for handicaps further down the line.
€55,000 yearling by Zoffany out of a Pivotal mare. Yet to win but keeps hitting the frame, placing on three of his five starts on turf. Beaten a neck on latest start at Navan this month and a strong possibility first-time blinkers will assist.
Son of Footstepsinthesand out of a Captain Rio mare. Fetched €15,000 as a foal; second foal and a brother to 6f-7f winner Myboyhenry. Needs to progress on disappointing debut effort at Leopardstown earlier this month.
Colt by Tamayuz out of a Ashkalani mare. Cost 45,000 gns as a two-year-old. Running well in defeat in a couple of starts this season at Cork and Leopardstown and deserve a change of luck.
Daughter of Footstepsinthesand out of a Choisir mare. Running well in defeat in a couple of starts on the AW at Dundalk including when third of eight beaten 2¾L last month. Not ruled out but possibly better suited to handicaps in future.
Daughter Dandy Man out of a Captain Rio mare. Sister to 5f winners Chiclet and Daisy Bell. Possibly best watched on debut unless market vibes suggest otherwise.
€90,000 Kodiac filly. Dam a half-sister to a juvenile Listed winner over 6f. Promising early form has tailed off somewhat but commands respect from trainer/jockey combination in good form.
Home-bed daughter of Dark Angel. Dam won over 7f on debut. Five-race maiden who has been running well in defeat in four starts this season. Hampered on latest start and capable of hitting the frame.
