Bred to be speedy and has shown enough in 5f starts at Down Royal and Cork to warrant a second look now stepped up to 6f. Place claims with another step forward.
No Nay Never filly, stepped up on debut effort when second to Ballydoyle's Tango at Navan last month over 5½f (winner not disgraced since in Group 2 races and third won next time out). Should be more to come.
An 8,000 gns two-year-old Kodiac filly. Dam unraced half-sister to smart juvenile 1m½f winner Wajeez. Probably best watched on debut unless market says otherwise.
Zoffany filly produced best of three efforts in middle outing when neck second over C&D in May, though since run below that form at Naas. Needs to bounce back now.
Declaration Of War filly who cost $115,000 as a yearling. She made a decent start last month in a Naas maiden (6f, good to yielding; 20-1) when 2½L fourth of 17. More to come with that run behind her.
Dawn Approach filly is a half-sister to two-year-old 1m½f winner African Beat and 1m1f winner Chachacha. Market should reveal plenty making first start for leading jumps trainer.
Daughter of Zoffany has run two poor races over 5f at Navan and Naas so far, doesn't appear to be one of Aidan O'Brien's leading lights and needs big improvement now tackling 6f. One of two for the yard here.
War Front filly, turned over at short odds in Naas maiden before tackling Group 3 at same track (well beaten 5-6f in May). Sent to the Albany at Royal Ascot since and never a threat late on. Sights lowered and on the shortlist for top yard.
Muhaarar filly. Cost 425,000gns as a yearling. Finished just ahead of Pronouncement on debut at Naas maiden (6f, good to yielding; 14-1) last month and should have a bit more to offer this time.
