Sent off as 1/3F but made no impression on lone start for Jim Bolger way back in 2017. Anyone's guess what to expect now but too risky surely.
Runner-up in three of his four races at two for Michael O'Callaghan but beaten out of sight in lone three-year-old start and now changed hands and having just his second race in last 22 months.
C&D fourth penultimately his best effort in three starts to date but unlikely to match or indeed better that in this warmer contest.
Newcomer by Sir Prancealot went unsold at auction for €14,000. Unlikely sort on debut for small stable.
Dropped from a Listed race latest this well bred son of Lope De Vega was second of 15 at Fairyhouse over 6f. 7f should be suitable and now gelded he has realistic claims to go one better.
Second to 2000 Guineas winner Magna Grecia in sole start at two so his fifth on return at Leopardstown latest a little underwhelming. Surely more to come now though and two pieces of headgear added.
Promise about his fourth on debut but no progress latest at Gowran in midfield so plenty to prove here although gelded since last run.
Excellent debut last September when third of 12 to 2000 Guineas winner Magna Grecia (Mudlahhim second) but shade disappointing he hasn't placed in two starts since. Now gelded and gets extra respect given yard and venue.
Newcomer by Alhebayeb retained by vendor at auction is a half-sister to 5f-1m winner Confrontational (inc at 2). Market the best guide to expectations.
Failed to win in eight for Mark Johnston and performed to a similar level on stable debut when third of seven at Leopardstown over this trip. Place claims but surely find at least one or two too good.
Built on her promising debut last October when a clear second best to a good winner in a 17-runner Fairyhouse maiden on return. Strip fitter now so has obvious claims to go one better.
Had 13 goes and remains a maiden and given her lowly rating she looks very much up against it today.
Cheap purchase not shown enough in two starts to date and latest effort at Fairyhouse gives her an awful lot to find.
More Than Ready filly; €3,000 half-sister to US 5f dirt winner Belmont Hills is best watched barring market support for stable who can ready a newcomer.
Only just touched off at Fairyhouse in a handicap (second of 18) so should soon break her duck but as she's now 0-10 others remain of stronger appeal.
