Unraced Iffraaj colt bought for €40,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to winner Shaaqaaf and market support would be notable on racecourse debut.
Well beaten 14th of 15 in a 7f maiden on good ground here on debut in October last year. Gelded since and probably best watched on seasonal reappearance.
Good 1L second in a 1m3f maiden at Killarney (good) in May. Disappointed in a 1m2f event at The Curragh (good) subsequently however and interesting to see how he fares.
Ran well to finish runner-up in a 7f maiden at Naas (good) on sole start at two. Winner has won in Group 1 company subsequently and he is one for the shortlist stepping up in trip on seasonal debut.
Placed in a 7f maiden at Cork (good-to-firm) in May but disappointed over the same trip here the following month. Probably best watched stepping up in distance.
Held in two maidens so far including over 1m1f at Tipperary (soft) in April. Others make more appeal on return from a break.
Finished mid-division in a 1m maiden at Gowran Park (yielding-to-soft) when making her debut in May. More needed stepping up in distance.
Unraced daughter of Kingman and a half-sister to dual winner Autun. Represents leading connections and is a notable runner on first racecourse appearance.
Placed three times in maiden company including over 1m2f at Cork (good) in May. Disappointing twice subsequently however and tongue tie tried for the first time.
