Gelding by Dubai Destination out of an Oscar mare. Cost €25,000 as a three-year-old. Dam unraced half-sister to useful hurdlers Native Shore and Bin It. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut.
Gelding by Arcadio out of a Supreme Leader mare. Dam unraced. Half-brother to point-to-point/2m1f-3m hurdle/chase winner Shantou Magic. Encouraging debut when finishing in midfield in a Roscommon bumper last month. First time cheekpieces.
Shirocco gelding out of a Saddlers Hall mare. Inexpensive €3,700 as a three-year-old. Half-brother to winners Like Your Style and Is Herself About. Hampered and unseated rider on unfortunate debut at Fairyhouse when last seen in April.
Daughter of Mountain High. Cost a modest €800 as a three-year-old. Closely related to useful hurdler/chaser Railway Zira. Best watched on debut with first time tongue tie.
Daughter of Stowaway out of a Sir Harry Lewis mare. Half-sister to useful bumper winner Sir Vinski. Yards newcomers often come on for debut run.
Unraced but from respected connections. Half sister to two winners. Dam ran in bumpers and is a half-sister to Master Albert. Major player on debut representing respected trainer/jockey combination.
Filly by Stowaway out of a Definite Article mare. Dam 2m5f hurdle winner. Looks to be an improving sort based on a couple of career starts to date and merits plenty of respect.
