Motivator mare, twice-raced in bumpers to little effect, sent off 100-1 in a Limerick maiden over a mile last week on Flat bow and never a danger, stiff ask again.
Born To Sea filly, related to multiple winners though pedigree does suggest a longer trip might prove ideal before long.
Gelded son of Gregorian out of maiden hurdle winner Godwit, beaten wide margins in pair of 1m Limerick maidens so far, may be one for low-grade handicaps after this.
36,000 gns yearling, Kyllachy gelding is a half-brother to winner up to 1m1 Chicadoro and 1m-1m1f winner Kaanoon. Entitled to be decent, market should reveal more on first outing.
By Footstepsinthesand, gelding improved on second start recently at Gowran Park, just missing out on a place. Both runs so far have come with soft in the going description. Up in trip and possible improver.
Son of Born To Sea, not without promise in maiden runs at Navan and the Curragh either side of an 89-day layoff, though will have to take a step forward to get in the shake-up now.
Papal Bull gelding, half-brother to useful 7f-1m2½f winner Spruce Meadows. Second runner for the yard in this line-up, market useful in assessing prospects.
By Toronado, in the frame both runs so far in 1m maiden at Navan and the Curragh last month, though has a bit of improvement to find in order to launch a genuine winning challenge now.
€100,000 yearling, Shamardal colt. Half-brother to smart 1m2f-1m7f winner Fergus McIver and 7f winner Dariga. Yard going well, noted newcomer.
Lawman filly is a closely related to 1m4f winner Dancing Doll and half-sister to 7f winner Cnocandancer. First start for Tony Martin.
Bated Breath filly; a half-sister to three winners, including useful winner up to 1m Graser and two-year-old 7f winner Gregoria. Cost €35,000 as a yearling and merits a close look.
Raven's Pass filly, improving with racing and has finished close second on previous two starts at Gowran Park and Navan over this trip. Should be in the firing line again.
Invincible Spirit filly, improved on second start when runner-up behind now 90-rated next-time out winner Morpho Blue at Leopardstown (7f, good to firm). First-time visor on and a player likely to prove popular with Dettori booked.
