16:50 Tipperary Sun 23 June 2019
Six-race maiden in bumpers, the mare finished seventh of 20 beaten over 12L on hurdling debut at Punchestown earlier this month. Plenty on her plate on first Flat start.
One from 16 over hurdles and has finished well down the field on two career Flat starts. Others appear much more convincing.
Unraced Showcasing gelding and a half-brother to the useful Magic Of Reality. Market support would be notable on first racecourse appearance.
Gelding by Sea The Moon out of a Galileo mare. Cost €1000,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to 7f - 1m1f winner Proud Sky, successful in Ireland and Hong Kong. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut.
Colt by Australia out of a Military mare. Dam won Grade 2 in America and also won as a juvenile. First time cheekpieces reached for on fourth start following a number of innocuous career efforts.
Will no doubt has disappointed respected connections in a couple of laboured performances since the Rock Of Gibraltar gelding made his debut last month. No surprise to witness improved effort.
Gelded son of Mastercraftsman and a half-brother to useful stayer Mutual Regard. Ninth of 17 beaten 13L on debut in a Cork 1m2f maiden on good to yielding ground earlier this month. Yard more than capable of inspiring improvement.
Gelded son of Approve and a half-brother to a number of winners including multiple scorer Ardmay. Slowly in to stride when sent off at odds of 100/1 on debut earlier this month before finishing last of 15.
Sea The Moon gelding purchased for 10,000 gns at the sales in October 2017. Never on terms on debut at Roscommon earlier in the month and liable to find a couple stronger here.
Dawn Approach gelding whose dam is a sister to Youmzain. Eighth of 15 after being slowly in to stride on debut at Gowran Park earlier this month. Looks a tall order.
Colt by Invincible Spirit who has improved on each career start to date. Third of 10 finishing 2½L adrift of Harpo Marx in a Tipperary 1m4f maiden earlier this month and likely to improve here. Holds leading claims.
Cost $350,000 as a yearling but is yet to repay any of that hefty price-tag in six starts to date. Sending out a number of mixed signals out since seasonal debut earlier this month but hard to totally dismiss in this contest.
Filly by Casamento out of a Sleeping Indian mare. Half-sister to 6f winner La Manga and 6f/7f victor, Twilight. Stables debutantes' generally need initial run.
Daughter of Mastercraftsman out of a Galileo mare. Dam unraced half-sister to 1m Group 1 winner as a two-year-old, Denebola, 6f Group 3 winner Loving Kindness. Watching brief on debut.
Dawn Approach filly out of a Rainbow Quest mare. Cost 42,000gns as a yearling. Well down the field on both career starts to date and is unlikely to be playing a part in the finish.
Dark Angel filly who is a half-sister to Australian G1 winner Dariana. Sent off at big prices on both career starts to date, running accordingly on each occasion. Unlikely to be making a significant impact in this contest.
First Reserve: Two starts on the Flat has failed to trigger any enthusiasm for the High Chaparral gelding and has a bit to prove if making the line-up.
