Gelding by Arakan out of a Medaaly mare. Half-brother to chase winner Redmond. Sixth of 17 in a February point-to-point and likely to come on for debut run under rules.
Out of luck in a couple of point-to-point starts since March and subsequently brought down on hurdling debut at the second in a Clonmel maiden last month. Looks a long term prospect.
Gelding by Frozen Fire out of a Acatenango mare. Improved performance when finishing third of 11 beaten 6¼L in a Kilbeggan 2m bumper earlier this month. More than capable of a big run here for respected connections.
Beaten favourite on his fourth bumper start at Kilbeggan last month, finishing second of nine over 2m. Overall efforts have been positive and this Saints Des Saints gelding looks a solid option.
Gelding by Mahler out of a Bach mare. Has moved for €11,000 as as three-year-old and £20,000 as a five-year-old. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut.
Modest form in the point-to-point ranks and on a couple of dismal bumper starts. Runs in first-time visor but is unlikely to be playing a part at the business end of proceedings.
Not disgraced in a couple of maiden hurdle spins here last month but is possibly best watched reverting back to bumpers, unless the market suggests otherwise.
Will have disappointed connections on return to action at Ballinrobe last month following a couple of promising starts last summer. Others look open to more improvement.
