James's Gate Irish EBF Median Auction Maiden (Plus 10)
7f | Good (Good to Yielding in places) | 11 Runners | Turf
Off time: 17:45 | Winning time: 1m 27.16s
Son of Outstrip. Has already been gelded. Cost £65,000 as a yearling. Can be expected to improve on debut run at the Curragh over 7f last month for yard among the winners here this week.
Already gelded son of Alhebayeb out of a Owington mare. Closely related to multiple winner between 6f and 1m on the AW/turf. Possible best watched for Co Meath yard having a quiet time of things at the moment.
£58,000 yearling. Related to moderate winners from 5f to 7f Darkest Light and Teepee Time. Driven and no impression 2f out on debut at Down Royal last week and appears to be the yards second string.
Son of Palavicini out of a Invincible Spirit mare. Closely related to winner on the Flat for Ger Lyons and over hurdles for Gordon Elliott, Elysian Plains. Market likely to be the best guide making his first start.
By Kitten's Joy. Expensive recruit to top Jumps stable. Sales price went up from $110,000 as a yearling, to €160,000 as a two-year-old. Never on terms in a rough debut run at the Curragh last month. Worth a market check.
Son of Authorized and out of a mare who won over 7f and 1m1f in France. Promising second of 14 beaten ½L behind Howling Wolf in a Leopardstown 7f maiden last month. Leading claims given pedigree.
Gelding by Dragon Pulse out of a Invincible Spirit mare. Last of nine on a disappointing debut at Fairyhouse over 6f last month. Hard to fancy.
Daughter of Sea The Moon out of a Rahy mare. Half-sister to four winners including Group 1 winner Alpha Centauri. Likely to improve on debut run at Leopardstown over this trip last month and one for the shortlist.
Filly by Power out of a Choisir mare. Dam well beaten in three career starts between 1m and 1m4f. Best watched on debut unless market vibes suggest otherwise.
Daughter of Starspangledbanner who has been generally well held in a couple of career starts so far. Not one to underestimate with experience on her side.
Stoutly-bred related to plenty of winners around this distance and beyond. Needs a chunk of improvement from debut run at Tipperary last month to play a part in this contest.
