Arcadio gelding whose dam was unraced but is a half-sister to Prince of Steel who was useful over hurdles where she stayed up to 2m4f. Debut run so too much can't be expected first time here.
Was sixth of eight on his debut at Bellewstown over the extended 2m trip on his debut last month where he finished 11L behind the winner after going off at 40/1. Will need to show much more on second start.
Califet gelding whose dam ran twice in point-to-points but failed to complete the course in those two starts. One to watch on his debut here as he is more likely to come on once he enters handicap company.
Beat Hollow gelding who cost €5,000 as a three-year-old. His dam was unraced but a half-sister to Definite Dawn who was useful over fences and stayed up to 3m2f. One to watch on debut.
Doyen gelding whose dam was a winner over hurdle over 2m2f. He is a half-sister to Clear Ripose who stayed up to 3m and was useful over hurdles. Very interesting newcomer who stands out on debut.
Was eighth of 12 on his debut at Killarney (2m1f) when going off at 50/1. He was in touch until the closing stages on his debut before weakening inside the final 2f. Down in trip here. Needs to show a lot more.
Spanish Moon gelding. He is a half-brother to Cousin Germain who was successful over hurdles and fences. Interesting newcomer from this yard. Keep an eye out for any market support.
Made a modest start to his career when seventh of 12 at Killarney (2m1f) on his debut last month. Travelled well in the middle stages of the race but weakened at the finish. Likely to improve here.
Shantou gelding whose dam was successful from 6f up to 1m. He is a half-brother to two winners on the Flat, including Local Singer who scored over 6f. Breeding suggests he will have speed. Question mark over stamina.
Could only finish 15th of 18 on his debut at Cork over 2m last month when going off at 14/1 beforehand. Was unable to quicken in the closing stages. It would be a surprise if he was able to improve enough to score here.
Has finished a long way down the field on her two starts so far. She was 14th of 18 on her debut at Punchestown (2m½f), while last time she was last of 12 at Down Royal (2m½f). Hard to make a case for here.
Has shown some promise in her two starts so far. She was third of 12 on debut at Tramore (2m), while on her latest appearance, she was fourth of 10 at Clonmel (2m½f). Open to improvement so one to consider.
