Cost 30,000 euros as a yearling; third foal; dam 5f winner and half-sister to useful 6f-1m winner Volunteer Point. Decent draw on debut; market should provide clues.
Elusive City colt out of a Dixieland Band mare. Closely related to Elusive Quality and half-brother to several winners. Led early on debut at Galway until tamely fading; entitled to improve.
Lawman gelding bought for €22,000 as a yearling last September. Has improved with every run and looks the form pick of those with racecourse experience.
Cost £17,000 as a yearling; not particularly fashionably bred and difficult to assess on debut; already gelded and any market moves would be interesting.
One of the better bred in the field being related to plenty of winners including Lime and Lemon and Verdigris; trip might be on the short side and should do better in time.
Half-brother Hunt is a Grade 1 winner over 1m, but this daughter of Gutaifan showed little on either of her two starts and others likely to have her measure, for all she should have learnt from those experiences.
Related to a few minor winners but stable not renowned for sending out two-year-old winners and probably best watched on debut.
Cost 14,000 euros as a two-year-old; not particularly well bred and unlikely to be good enough on first appearance.
Filly by Epaulette out of a Sea The Stars mare. Improved from first run to second at Listowel earlier this month finishing 6L adrift of the winner in the 15-runner contest. No surprise to witness an improved run.
Cheaply bought colt related to a few minor winners in Italy; hard to see him making a winning debut but worth a market check.
Teofilo colt who was foaled on March 25. €5,000 yearling. His dam was a winner over 6f in France. Well down the pack on debut at Naas over 6f. More needed here.
Daughter of Shooting to win out of a Echo Of Light mare. Dam, two-race maiden on the AW at Dundalk. Never a factor on debut at Bellewstown in August; entitled to improve but may still not be good enough.
Filly by Anjaal who stayed towards the rear of the field when 16L 13 at Leopardstown in mid-August. Stable rarely known for winners so is readily opposable.
Daughter of Free Eagle out of a Verglas mare. Dam Flat winner on the turf over 6f and on the AW at Dundalk over 1m. Made pleasing debut at Down Royal at the end of August and likely to improve.
