Born To Sea newcomer a half-brother to winners Think Fashion (6f), Cameo Star (5f 2yo/6f) and Something New (Italian 7f-1m). Market can reveal expectations on debut.
Yard not noted for their juvenile winners but he ran with some credit when fourth of eight on debut at Fairyhouse earlier this month. Improvement likely so in the hunt for place money here.
Newcomer by Alhebayeb cost €3,200 as a yearling and is a brother to a winner in Eastern Europe. Looks one best watched here.
Galileo colt came from off the pace to finish a more than respectable second on debut at Naas. That the best form on offer but runners from this yard invariably improve plenty on second start so his claims are exceptionally strong.
Not shown enough really in two starts at the Curragh (10th of 12) and Fairyhouse (seventh of nine) and looks one best watched ahead of likely move to nurseries.
Son of Zoffany in need of the run when seventh of 12 at the Curragh nine day ago but will undoubtedly come forward for the King of Galway.
Colt by Lawman showed some pace before weakening into last of six on debut at Killarney. Better for that run but doubt he makes the frame here.
Newcomer by Dragon Pulse retained by his vendor for €6,000 as yearling. Out of a 5f AW 2yo winner so bred to be precocious and looks the most likely of the debutants.
