Society Rock colt cost 72,000 gns as a yearling. Finished fourth and third in two eight runner maidens last month at Fairyhouse and Galway. Hard to see him making much of an impression upped to this class.
Off the mark on start number five after a disappointing effort in a maiden. Well tried previously including finishing fifth of 14 in the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot. Sets the standard for stable who has won the last three renewals.
Looked an exciting prospect when winning on debut in easy style over 7f at Leopardstown in June. Holds some fancy entries and had been due to run at Group 3 level last month before getting a temperature. Likely big improver.
Pacy type had improved on each run since his debut, including a maiden win at Navan and a good third when stepped up to 7f at Leopardstown. More needed but progressive so worth a try at this level and could be involved.
Unlucky on debut and has shown nice progress in two starts since with a win over a mile at Killarney. Drop in trip won't inconvenience but this will need a fair bit more up to this level.
