Gelding by Helmet was purchased for €30,000 at the sales as a foal. Plenty to be taken from his run at Roscommon earlier this month finishing 4¼L behind the winner on debut. Not to be taken lightly.
Slowly away when beaten 15L in a 7f maiden at Gowran Park (yielding-to-soft) on debut last month. Gelded since and likely to find this a tall order.
Cost £15,000 and has winner in his pedigree. Outran odds of 33-1 on Naas debut in November over a mile before improving to finish second of 13 at Tipperary over a similar trip. Holds strong place claims if things fall his way.
105,000 gns Kodiac half-brother to useful 1¼m winner Wasatch Range out of an unraced half-sister to smart 1m-1¼m winner Beach Bunny. Improved on debut run when running creditably at Leopardstown last month but more needed in this company.
Born To Sea gelding well down the pack on three career starts to date including on seasonal reappearance at Cork last month. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Bungle Inthejungle colt and a half-brother to winning sprinter Smokey Lane. Towards rear throughout on debut in a Limerick 1m maiden earlier this month. Easily passed over.
Gelding by Battle Of Marengo out of an Azamour mare. Initial efforts have been very much below-par and has not shown enough overall in both starts to be of interest here.
Arcano colt, improving on each run to date at Gowran Park last month, beaten a neck and in a Listowel 1m maiden finishing third of eight, 1¼L adrift of Defining Battle earlier this month. Can't be ruled out looking at the full card.
Five-race maiden who has been far from disgraced in each of his races since March. First-time blinkers may well trigger improvement but the Vocalised colt may have to settle for minor honours.
Decent efforts on all three starts in maiden company so far including when 7¼L fourth in a 1m event at Gowran Park on good-to-firm ground last time out. Should be a leading contender in this company.
Filly by Holy Roman Emperor out of a Tirol mare. Sister to two-year-old 5f/6f winner High Award and closely related to 7f victor Mayano Sophia. Well held on the AW at Dundalk on debut and hard to place any faith in.
Lilbourne Lad filly out of a Cape Cross mare. Weakened over 2f on debut in a Navan 1m maiden earlier this month. Initial form doesn't warrant support.
Three-race maiden, running well in defeat on her most recent starts. both at Gowran Park. Likely to improve and run well once again.
Daughter of Gale Force Ten out of a Refuse To Bend mare. Dam a four-race maiden between 7f - 1m4f. Possibly best watched on debut unless market vibes suggest otherwise.
€27,000 yearling by Dream Ahead out of a Repent mare. Half-sister to winners Lady Camelot and Jocks Wa Hae, successful over 1m1f. Likely to improve on this debut run.
