Colt by Gleneagles got off the mark at the third time of asking when landing a Down Royal maiden over 7f last month. Leading player once again.
Form on the AW at Dundalk is quickly proving to be superior to his efforts on turf. Steps up in trip here and market vibes will possibly be the best guide.
Daughter of Holy Roman Emperor out of a Makfi mare. Dam unraced. Has already posted a first and second in both career starts to date and likely to be popular in the market on handicap debut.
Six-race maiden who has followed up on a couple of decent efforts in maidens since May to finish third of six on handicap debut at the Curragh over 6f last month. Can come with a late burst to grab a place.
Three race maiden who has the habit of doing too much too soon in his races. Could be of interest in first-time blinkers but no guarantee to settle.
An €18,000 yearling, Gutaifan colt. Half-sister to useful winner up to 1m4f Tarakala. Another in the race who races from the front and has the benefit of first-time blinkers to help him settle here. Worth a market check.
Six-race maiden still looking for his breakthrough success in five starts on turf. Not beaten far on latest start but faces much sterner opposition.
A half-sister to 7f-1m winner Janna's Jingle and Silaro, a winner at up to 1m3f in Italy. Modest return from three career starts to date and improvement needed if she is to take this event.
Colt by Alhebayeb out of a High Chaparral mare. €7,000 yearling resold for just €1,000. Unlikely to be troubling the judge based on what he has shown in three starts so far.
