Well beaten in two starts so far including over 7f at Limerick (yielding) just over a month ago. Others make more appeal.
Unraced son of Slade Power purchased for 14,000 gns last October. Half-brother to a number of winners but stable are 0/23 with their juveniles in recent years.
Unraced Elzaam gelding cost connections €14,000 at the sales last autumn. Dam a winner on the continent and market support would be notable on debut.
Improved on debut effort when finishing a close fifth over 5f at Cork (good-to-yielding) last time out. One to note stepping up in distance.
Unraced daughter of Cable Bay bought for €25,000 as a yearling last year. Half-sister to useful sprinter Valbchek and is an interesting runner on racecourse debut.
Good 4L fourth on debut at Fairyhouse (6f, good-to-firm) and drop in trip should suit having finished seventh on soft ground over 7f at Roscommon last time out.
Failed to figure when finishing eighth of ten in a 7f maiden on good ground here when debuting last month. More needed in this contest.
Unraced Starspangledbanner filly bought for €18,000 at the breeze-up sales in May. Worth a check in the market for a yard in good form at present (11/38) on racecourse debut.
Unraced War Command colt purchased for 45,000 gns at the breeze-up sales in May. Half-brother to the useful Indian Chief but stable better known for their exploits over jumps.
Never involved when finishing 33L last of five over an extended 7f at Tipperary (good-to-firm) on debut earlier this month. Others hold stronger claims.
Unraced Zebedee colt bought for €5,000 at the sales in October. Half-brother to a number of winners and interesting to see how he performs on debut.
Unraced Anjaal filly cost connections €15,000 at the sales in September last year. Half-brother to a couple of winners and market support would be notable with a top jockey booked to ride on debut.
Unraced Kodiac filly purchased cheaply for €800 last November. Joined a good yard and interesting to see how she performs on debut.
