Gelding by Lonhro out of a Zieten mare. Relatively inexpensive purchase at 2,000 gns at Newmarket sales 14 months ago and failed to make the track for trainer Michael Bell. Easy to look elsewhere.
Son of Red Jazz and a half-brother to dual winner Baby Power. Beaten a long way in Bellewstown maiden (1m, good; 10-1) on debut this month and needs to step up markedly.
Big Bad Bob mare, produced nothing of note in four runs over 11-month spell from summer of 2017 onwards. Returns from a layoff with everything to prove.
Struggled in two starts so far most recently on yielding ground over an extended 1m1f at Gowran Park two months ago. Has plenty to work on here to get competitive.
Daughter of Choisir out of an Excellent Art mare, sixth of 15 here last month on debut (beaten 10L) and will need to step up considerably on that effort to hold valid claims now.
By War Front and nicely related, improving in each of four starts so far and can be in the mix if taking another step up on recent Limerick fourth in first-time blinkers (retained).
Failed to trouble the judge in pair of AW starts in France last year, starts out for new connections here and likely best watched unless betting suggests otherwise.
By Galileo, not beaten far in bunched finish to 1m2f Roscommon maiden on second start last month. Drops right back in distance for this contest.
Five-race maiden, more exposed than plenty of his rivals here and will seemingly have to improve to get off the mark.
Dylan Thomas filly was a 33-1 chance on debut in 7f AW maiden at Dundalk in October and didn't run badly, finishing just over 3L sixth of 14. Off since and worth a betting check now making turf debut.
Exceed and Excel filly who was a €220,000 yearling. Her dam was a winner at 1m as a two-year-old. Held on debut at Bellewstown (5f, good; 6-4f) recently, should have learned from the experience.
Arcano filly. Dam 7f winner. One of two debutantes in this line-up for trainer Gordon Elliott, worth a second look in the market.
Born To Sea filly is a half-sister to three winners, including 6f/7f winner Five Claw and 6f-7f winner Ducky Mallon. Not crossed off the list.
Pour Moi filly. Closely related to useful middle distance winner Running Deer and half-sister to 7½f-1m4f winner Heska, amongst others. One of two runners for Gordon Elliott in this field.
Dragon Pulse filly purchased for €7,000 at the sales as a yearling; beaten 30+L on debut in Bellewstown maiden this month, needs a big step up to have a say here.
Unfancied 25-1 shot on debut at Bellewstown (1m, good) this month, shaped with some degree of purpose in finishing 8L down on the winner. May improve on that now.
Fast Company filly, hasn't built on decent showing in Navan maiden (5f, good; 16-1) in May during two further outings over longer trip. Needs more.
