Galileo colt. Half-brother to multiple winners. Winner on second start at the Galway festival last month. Yard boast a 40% strike rate with juveniles at this festival in the last four years.
Colt by No Nay Never out of a Revoque mare. Shaped well on third start producing a career best effort at Bellewstown last month. Yard had nine winners at this festival 12 months ago.
War Command colt. Off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking when landing a Killarney handicap over this trip off an 11lb lower mark at odds of 9/1. May struggle from harsh looking rating.
Beat Franklin Street last month getting off the mark for connections at the third attempt over this trip in a Bellewstown maiden. Another bold show appears to be on the cards.
Seven-race maiden produced a career best effort at Cork on his latest start in a Cork 7f handicap earlier this month. Not a forlorn hope but others look more convincing.
Improved effort on his third start in a Down Royal 7f maiden on good ground when last seen in July. Looks a tall order on handicap debut.
Failed to build on a couple of promising efforts earlier in the season, disappointing connections with two below-par performances at the Galway festival and more recently at Killarney over 1m last month. Needs a sizable improvement to mix it here.
Winner of a Sligo 5½f handicap on good ground last month off a 10lb lower mark before running well in defeat at the Curragh and Killarney. Appears to have more to offer and very much respected in this company.
