Gelding by Aizavoski. Dam well beaten 2m - 2m4f maiden hurdles, sister to bumper/2m - 3m5f hurdle/chase winner General Principle, winner of the 2018 Irish Grand National. Worth a market check.
Resplendant Cee gelding out of a Teenoso mare. Half-brother to bumper/2m4f - 3m hurdle winner Unowhatimeanharry. Dam modest 2m - 2m4f hurdle winner. Yard newcomers usually come on for first run.
Gelding by Robin Des Pres out of a Fruits Of Love mare. Dam unraced half-sister to 2m4f hurdle winner Underthefloorboards. Looks a long term prospect.
Smart Strike gelding out of a Dansili mare. Half-brother to 1m turf two-year-old/1m3f AW winner Autun and US 1m turf winner Feasibility. Looks an interesting recruit from respected yard.
Montmartre gelding out of a Peintre Celebre mare. Dam placed over 1m - 1m4f in France. Co Kerry yard struggling for winners of late.
Gelding by Mount Nelson out of a Darshaan mare. Half-brother to four winners including Rundell, Simon Gray and Plymouth Sound. Likely to be popular in the market given jockey booking.
French Fifteen gelding. Half-brother to four winners including French 6½f and 1m Flat/2m1f - 2m4f hurdle/chaser, Hollyster. Yard have been known to ready one on debut and has the assistance of leading jockey.
Gelding by Epaulette out of a Mr Greeley mare. Half-brother to 5f/6f winner in Italy, Into The Wild. Disappointed on debut at Roscommon last month and likely to be the same story here.
Sans Frontieres gelding. Cost €7,800 as a three-year-old. Half-brother to bumper/2m5f - 2m6f hurdle/chase winner Whoshotwho. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut.
Gastnet Rock gelding out of a Montjeu mare. Cost €20,000 as a yearling. Dam Group-placed 8.4f winner. Yard not renowned for National hunt runners.
Three-race maiden but hard to discount here. Yard boast a terrific 35% (eight from 23) strike rate at this meeting with their national hunt runners since 2015.
Filly by Montmartre. Dam French 1m7f/2m hurdle winner. Market possibly the best guide on debut and first bumper runner for the yard this term.
