Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden
1m 2f | Good to Yielding | 16 Runners | Turf
Off time: 16:36 | Winning time: 2m 13.31s
Has shown plenty of ability in both her starts to date and while she was a beaten favourite last time out, she gives the impression she will carry on improving. Fascinating contender.
Dawn Approach filly, cost €8,500 as a yearling. Half-sister to three winners and dam a juvenile winner. Pedigree suggests she may do better over further.
Iffraaj filly who ran with promise at Cork on debut but failed to build on that at Gowran. Interesting runner now stepped up in trip on return here, though Camphor is probably the yard's first-string.
Casamento half-sister to 1¼m winner Danzay and 1m winner My Only Hope out of a maiden half-sister to high-class winner up to 1¼m Ghaiyyath. Well beaten 13th of 15 at Tipperary on debut; needs to leave that form behind.
Produced a smart effort when third of 14 at Leopardstown on her return to action but disappointed when sent off at just 7/2 at the Curragh since. Interesting she's not switched to handicaps yet but needs to improve and draw not ideal.
Camelot filly, cost €120,000 as a yearling. Sister to a Group 3 winner (1m4f) and related to several more winners. Ran well from off the pace on debut at Cork and didn't get a clear run. She's a player here if she can build on that.
Kingman filly, who has only found one too good on both her maiden starts to date. Well bred and should continue to improve here given that she's proven to some extent in similar conditions; leading player.
The Carbon Unit filly, dam a 6f winner and half-sister to one placed at Listed level. Beaten a long way when sent off a big price on debut and best watched again on just her second start here.
Canford Cliffs filly, half-sister to a useful middle distance performer. Dam a 5f winner. Entitled to need the run on debut here and both a wide draw and first-time hood aren't appealing.
Alhebayeb filly, cost €3,500 as a yearling. Not disgraced on debut when sixth of 20 at Naas and may improve here but a marked step up in trip not guaranteed to suit.
So You Think filly, cost €4,500 as a two-year-old. Dam a half-sister to a 1m1f Grade 2 winner in the US. Market may be the best guide on debut but wide draw not ideal. Wears first-time tongue-tie.
Shamardal filly, half-sister to three winners that include a Listed winner. Dam closely related to a Grade 1 US winner. Beautifully bred but showed very little on debut at Cork. Needs to improve.
Camelot filly, cost €160,000 as a yearling. Has run to a similar level on both her starts to date and looks likely to appreciate this step up in trip. Ground was soft when fourth of 15 at Gowran on debut so ground should suit.
The Carbon Unit filly who was slowly into stride and never a factor thereafter on debut at Hamilton when fifth of six. Needs plenty more to mix it with some of these.
Galileo filly, sister to a Group 3 winner. Steadily improving with each start and shaped like this step up in trip would suit last time. Draw not ideal but hardly one to rule out given her pedigree.
Galileo filly, sister to a US winner and dam a US Grade 1 winner. Beaten a long way on debut but well bred and ought to improve.
