Holy Roman Emperor filly, cost £45,000 as a yearling. Related to a host of sprinters and dam a 1m winner. Encouraging debut at the Curragh but failed to build on that over this C&D subsequently. More needed.
Last of four on debut at Dundalk and then improved when third at Navan despite still looking in need of experience. Progress needed once again but that's more than likely.
Well beaten last of 12 in a 6f maiden at the Curragh on debut but some progress when not seeing out 7f at Leopardstown. Showed pace that suggested this trip may suit but still a lot more required.
€24,000 yearling. Fifth foal. Half-brother to 6f winner Elizabeth Bennet. Hampered early and ran better than bare result when eased late on Down Royal debut. Still likely to struggle in this company but better expected.
Signs of ability when eighth in a 6f maiden at Naas and built on that nicely for an eye-catching fifth at the same track over this distance. The smart winner had twice been placed at Group 3 level and that form sets the standard here.
Daughter of Acclamation cost €31,000 as a yearling and unsold for €54,000 as a juvenile; a fifth foal; closely related to juvenile sprint winner Chipping and a half sister to juvenile winner Geological and Grimeford Lane. One to note in the betting.
£32,000 yearling out of an unraced half-sister to Enlace. Showed plenty of pace when just tiring late on debut over this trip at Navan. That would be close to the best form on offer and a likely improver for last year's winning stable.
Outran odds of 100-1 when sixth on debut at the Curragh over 6f and ran to a similar standard when a well backed second at Wolverhampton over this distance. Would need to improve to win but pacy and place possibilities.
Last of seven beaten 13L on debut at Dundalk on the AW and again suffered a same distance defeat when an improved seventh of 17 at the Curragh. Showed pace that suggests this drop in trip may help but improvement required.
Daughter of Dragon Pulse was a cheap purchase as a yearling at just €2,000. Hasn't shown enough in two British starts to suggest she'll be a factor in this company.
Worthadd filly cost just €3,000 a yearling; a 13th foal and a half-sister to five winners. Bred to need further in time and best watched on debut.
Daughter of Dream Ahead who cost €10,000 as a yearling; second foal to a well bred unraced mare. Likely to need a touch further in due course but worth a precautionary market check on debut.
