19:20 Roscommon Mon 19 August 2019
Well beaten and never nearer in three effortless starts since March and impossible to make a case for in this company.
Smart Strike gelding out of a Dansili mare. Nothing of note in a couple of career bumper starts to date at Killarney and earlier this month at Roscommon. Significant drop in trip for Flat introduction.
Cost £5,000 as a three-year-old by Oasis Dream out of a Halling mare. Well out the back in two dismal maiden efforts in the last month at Ballinrobe and earlier this month at the Galway festival.
Colt by Australia out of a Holy Roman Emperor mare had kicked on for his all-powerful stable with two places in maiden company before a disappointing effort on handicap debut at the Galway festival. Likely to be a different story in this company.
Showed little ability when 13th of 14 at the Curragh over 1m on debut. Needs to step up a fair way on the basis of that effort.
Gelding by Zebedee. Half-brother to several winners, including useful 1m1f/1m¼f winner Euphrasia and two-year-old victor, Langavat. Dam won over 6f. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut.
Gelding by Strong Mandate out of a Pleasantly Perfect mare. Hints of promise on second start at Naas earlier this month. Worthy of consideration for in form trainer and jockey combination.
Sending out mixed massages in a number of starts in a busy campaign since April. Capable of a big run in this company.
Daughter of Dansili out of a Selkirk mare. Sister to the smart filly Vancouverite and half-sister to three winners. Yard in scintillating form right now and worthy of a market check on debut for leading owners.
Casamento half-sister to 1¼m winner Danzay and 1m winner My Only Hope out of a maiden half-sister to high-class winner up to 1¼m Ghaiyyath. Little to show for three career starts so far and easily dismissed.
Daughter of Dawn Approach. Half-sister to several winners, including Ajman, winner at up to 1¼m and Royal Mezyan, victorious over 6f. Worth a check in the market for in form yard on debut appearance.
Pour Moi filly. Closely related to useful middle distance winner Running Deer and half-sister to 7½f-1m4f winner Heska, amongst others. In the right hands to make things click but is yet to show any spark in a couple of career starts so far.
Three-race maiden who showed plenty of improvement when dropped to 1m at Naas earlier this month. Capable of further improvement tried at yet another trip.
