Could only finish 10th of 13 on his debut at Kilbeggan which was in August 2018 when going off at 100/1. It would be a huge surprise if he returned to be in the mix today.
Pushkin gelding who is a half-brother to Myztique who was a bumper winner. His dam is an unraced sister to Dun Doire. One to watch on opening start.
Beneficial gelding who is a brother to Sammylou who won over 2m4f but also raced up to 3m. Interesting newcomer. Keep an eye out for any market confidence behind him before the race.
Has only raced once so far which came in a point-to-point at Stowlin (3m) where he was pulled-up in the 11 runner field just before the second last hurdle. Far more needed now under Rules.
Scorpion gelding whose dam was unsuccessful in bumpers in two attempts. His profile does not indicate he is likely to have immediate success on the track.
Was eighth on nine on his debut at Down Royal (2m½f) where he went off at 8/1. Found trouble in the closing stages of that run but was weakening then. Better performance expected this time.
Made a modest start to his career when sixth of 14 on his debut at Wexford (2m) where he was staying on strongly in the closing stages. A better performance can be expected. One to watch.
Declaration of War gelding who is out of Katiyra. Cost €19,000 as a three-year-old. His dam won up to 1m2f, with the pick of his success being the Group 2 Blandford Stakes. One to watch.
Didn't run badly on debut at Punchestown (2m½f) when seventh of 18 runners after going off at 20/1. Should improve from his opening start but other unexposed horses stand out more.
Cacique gelding who cost 12,000 guineas as a three-year-old. Brother to Canticum who won up to 1m5f. His dam was unraced. Interesting newcomer who may just need this.
Was ninth of 18 at Punchestown (2m½f) on his debut, 2l behind Pisgah Pike. Did not have the speed to challenge late on. Improvement needed to be in the mix at the finish this time.
Creachadoir gelding who is related to De Valira who had a lot of success over hurdles. His dam raced on the Flat in France without victory Other debutants are more eye-catching.
Getaway mare who showed a lot of promise when third of 11, only beaten by 1½l on her debut at Clonmel (2m). Improvement likely with that experience behind her so she is a leading player here.
Gold Well mare who was fifth of 12 on her opening start of her career at Tramore (2m). She made good headway through the race after a slow start. Should come on for that run. One for shortlist.
Was eighth of 11 on her debut at Leopardstown (2m) last December when going off at 66/1. Interesting jockey booking which suggests a big improvement is expected. One to consider.
Only had two horses behind her in a 18 runner field at Punchestown over the extended 2m trip on her debut. She weakened inside the final three furlongs to finish 33l away. Much more needed.
Dansant mare whose dam won in a point-to-point but never under Rules. She is a half-sister to Kilgariff who scored in a bumper. One to watch.
Won for the first time in a point-to-point contest at Stradbelly (3m) last time out. Racing under Rules for the first time here. Keep an eye for any strong support in the market for her.
