Running well in defeat in a couple of British raids on Perth since July. Deserves a change of luck but needs plenty of improvement in this company.
Gelding by Resplendent Glory out of a Clantime mare. Brother to winning sprinter Jangala Phoenix. Best watched on debut run here for yard not renowned for bumper winners.
Raced in mid-division on debut at Listowel earlier this month before keeping on well for pressure to finish third of seven beaten 4¾L. Plenty of room for improvement.
A Kalanisi gelding out of a stoutly-bred mare. Half-brother to bumper winner Ravenhill Road. Not up to the required standard for trainer Stuart Crawford when last seen in April. Likely to be a warm order for high-profile trainer/jockey combination.
Gelding by King's Theatre out of a King's Ride. Improving with every run and ran well to finish second of 13 at Bellewstown last month following a 97 day break. Big danger.
By Irish Wells a full-brother to Vodka Wells. Second of three runners on debut in a Carlisle bumper in April on sole start for trainer Keith Dalgleish. Market likely to reveal expectation on debut for new connections.
