Four-race maiden on turf but the daughter of Iffraaj has been running well in defeat of late and deserves a change in fortune soon. Yard won this contest 12 months ago with Lure Of The Sea.
Dawn Approach filly, cost €8,500 as a yearling. Half-sister to three winners and dam a juvenile winner. Will be looking to improve on a rather disappointing effort on debut at Navan in June.
Will have disappointed leading connections in a number of dismal career efforts to date. including 68 and 14½L defeat in June and July. Still looking no nearer to breakthrough success.
Four-race maiden not totally disgraced in a couple of starts last month and may be of interest if returning to the form showed at Leopardstown recently in first time blinkers to assist in this contest.
Beautifully bred filly by Australia out of a half-sister to Beat Hollow. Needs to improve on debut run at Killarny when beaten 4l finishing eighth of 14. Yard have hit the frame in both of the last two years in this contest.
Arcano filly. Dam 7f winner. Seventh of 17 beaten 12L in a Fairyhouse 7f maiden last month. Good chance handicaps will suit in future.
Without success in seven starts but the Helmet filly has hit the frame on three separate occasions. Plenty to like about her second of 14 beaten ½L in a Killarney 1m3f maiden last month and open to more improvement here.
Daughter of Cape Cross out of a Galileo mare. Yard hoping to go one better in this contest having saddled the runner-up here 12 months ago.
Six-race maiden fourth of 14 as beaten favourite at Killarney last month finishing behind Chesapeake Shores over 1m3f. Needs a coupe to falter.
Daughter of Lope De Vega who cost 26,000gns as a yearling. Slowly away on debut eventually finishing last of six beaten over 13L at Killarney last month. Not one to place a great deal of faith in.
