Only narrowly denied over C&D on debut and improved on that when runner-up at the Curragh next time. Only fourth of 15 in a Gowran maiden last time though and while the step back up in trip will suit, he has a fair amount to find on form.
Needed the run when favourite for his debut but kept on well to win a maiden over C&D next time out, beating Agitare. That level of form is below what's needed but he's well bred and looks sure to improve again. Moore prefers Mogul.
Produced a big effort on debut when just ¾L behind a subsequent Group 3 winner and confirmed the promise of that run with a win in a 7f maiden here next time. Brother/half-brother to two winning milers so no surprise if he were to improve again.
No match for one with experience on debut but typically for one from this yard, improved for the experience to win next time out at the Curragh and the runner-up has franked that form since. Could be hard to beat up in class here.
Maiden winner at the start of the campaign and while he's failed to add to that success, he put up a huge effort to finish runner-up in a Curragh Group 2 last time out. Step up to 1m should suit and not one to write off.
Failed to justify favouritism in his hat-trick bid last time out at Cork. Better than that effort but possible he's in here to ensure a decent gallop for his stablemates. Wears first-time cheekpieces.
Improved from his debut to win a maiden at the Curragh last time out, getting the better of Agitare. May improve for quicker ground here but will need to if he's going to mix it with some of these.
