€260,000 yearling. Half-brother to top class 7f to 1m7f winner Joshua Tree who won at 2. Dam won at 1m and 1m1f. Beaten 1L and a nose in first couple of starts. Likely improvement assisted by first-time cheekpieces.
€130,000 yearling, Camelot colt. Dam a winner over similar trip, stayed plenty further. Dwelt on debut eventually finishing down the field at the Curragh over 7f last month. More needed.
Hard Spun colt out of a US 1¼m winner, half-sister to US 2-y-o Grade 2 6f winner Classic Elegance. Encouraging run on debut at the Curragh last month with improvement possible here.
Colt by Born The Sea out of a Elusive Quality mare. Dam unraced. Closely related to Lasspour, winner in France over 1m4f. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut.
By Zoffany out of a Sadler's Wells mare. Watching brief on debut given it's unlikely to be a good sign he's already gelded.
Gleneagles colt, cost €110,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to a 6f juvenile winner. Dam a juvenile winner at 6f and half-sister to two Group 3 winning sprinters. Held up on debut before finishing nearer last than first at Navan on debut over 5f.
£82,000 yearling by top two-year-old sire No Nay Never is a half-brother to some minor Italian winners. Steps up in trip here following a couple of disappointing starts over 6f in July and at Cork last month.
Gelding by Power out of a Zebedee mare. Dam, below-par 11-race maiden. Best avoided on debut unless the market suggests otherwise.
Dansili colt. Half-brother to Group 3 winners Taniyar and Tanaza. Likely to improve on promising debut run at Leopardstown last month and one for the shortlist.
