Australia fily out of a Danehill Dancer mare; related to 5f Listed winner; hard to assess about market likely to provide the best guide.
Cost 75,000gns as a yearling; eighth of eight on debut at The Curragh in August (dwelt start); open to improvement but needs to put that poor run behind her.
Has improved with each race including when only headed close home last time out at Naas; entitled to carry on improving and looks one of the better ones with racecourse form.
Improved on Naas debut when not beaten too far under a hands and heels ride at Navan in May; long absence a slight concern but certainly one to note from a powerful stable who won this event last year.
Daughter of War Command out of a Saddler's Wells mare. €21,000 foal, half-sister to several winners including Moe Green victorious at up to 1m7f. Never a factor on debut at Naas in August; should be sharper here.
Nothing to note from pedigree and ran very green on only racecourse appearance at Naas earlier this month; can improve and should be capable of running a fair race.
Dwelt and bumped leaving stalls on only racecourse outing at the start of this month; ran with some promise that day without being a threat and should be closer here with that under her belt.
Daughter of Galileo out of a Giant's Causeway mare. Closely related to two-time winner, Flowering Peach, successful between 1m1½f and 1m3f. Interesting newcomer and stable won this event last year with least fancied runner.
Has run well for long stages of both her two racecourse appearances before tiring in the closing stages; should be plenty more to come but may have to wait another day before opening her account.
First foal; cost 15,000 euros as a yearling; related to some useful winner around 1m; tough ask on racecourse debut but market may provide clues to her capabilities.
€130,000 Kitten's Joy Filly. Dam offered very little on the track but was related to a Grade Three winner in the US. Finished one-pace on recent debut at Naas; more needed here but should improve for that run and one to consider.
Reasonably well-bred and ran very green on debut at Leopardstown in July; long absence as slight concern and another whose chances may be reflected in the market.
