Tailed off in all three starts on the flat including over extended 1m1f at Gowran Park (good) last time out. Offers limited appeal until in low-grade handicaps.
120,000 gns yearling. Out of a mare who was useful over 1m2f and is a full sister to Group 1 winner Librisa Breeze and 1m5f winner Belle Dauphine. Noteworthy on belated debut.
Expensive purchase a yearling but failed to fulfil that promise on debut when 11th at Newmarket (1m,good) last October. Subsequently changed hands for 14,000 gns. market should be a guide.
Ran with credit at Navan on his penultimate start but weakened tamely to finish 11th in C&D maiden when last seen in June. Reportedly lost his action that day so may be given another chance.
Outsider on both starts as a juvenile and offered little progression from debut when seventh of eight at Dundalk (5f, standard). Up in trip and a big step up required.
Some promise based on juvenile form last year and shaped with credit on first run in handicap company over C&D in April. Not seen since but is an improver.
Dubawi colt out of a 7f winning Dam. Half-brother to useful 7f winner Jassaar and pedigree looks strong. Market should guide on debut for powerful yard.
€5,000 foal by Gale Force Ten. Half-Brother to up to 1m2f winner Stevie's Wonder and out a mare who won over 7f. Yard not known for first-time out winners so best watched.
Defied slow start to run close in weak-looking maiden contest over C&D on debut, taking third in the dying stages. Has a minor break to contend with but open to progress. Shortlisted.
A cheap purchase for this yard and offered little on debut when beaten 30L at Naas (1m, good) ten days ago. Readily opposable.
Failed to fulfil mild market support on debut when reportedly kicking the stalls and losing her action. Entitled to be forgiven for that run but this looks a tough ask to spark a revival.
Once-raced filly. Rank outsider and tailed off on debut at Fairyhouse (7f, good) in July. No obvious excuses for that run so makes limited appeal.
Well held on debut and couldn't take advantage of a weak-looking maiden when 13L ninth at Naas (1m, good). One for handicaps in the future.
Quietly fancied on debut but award start cost her chances badly when 12th of 15 at Galway (7f, good) just over two weeks ago. Looks difficult to place and best watched.
Promising in two starts to date, finishing second over C&D before occupying the same place at Limerick (1m) in April. Off since but has the scope for progression. Leading contender.
