Five-race maiden, well beaten on his last couple of starts at Gowran Park and Leopardstown when last seen in June. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Without success in a total of 12 races including when being well held and never nearer in a number of starts over the summer running between 6f and 1m. Losing run set to continue.
€52,000 Raven's Pass gelding could never land a blow hen 11th of 14 on debut at Leopardstown before a dismal effort over 1m at Navan when last seen in June. Drop in trip not guaranteed to suit.
Gelding by Morpheus out of a Oratorio mare. Closely related to 11-race maiden Mags Well. Dam unraced. Co. Laois yard have struck with debutantes' in the past.
Relatively inexpensive Sepoy colt. Brother to 6f winner Samarmadi and half-brother to three winners, with mixture of stamina and speed. Bumped leaving the stalls before keeping on in the final furlong to finish sixth of 10 on debut at Navan in May.
Gelding by Es Que Love out of a Rock Of Gibraltar mare. Dam winner of one of her 22 starts but remained a 20-race maiden on turf. Promising debut when finishing third of 12 beaten ½L in a Down Royal 5f maiden last month. Shortlisted.
Sent off at big prices on each of his five career starts so far, running accordingly on each occasion and will need to raise overall profile to play a role here.
Not much to shout about in three below-par career starts so far. Daughter of Dream Ahead makes little appeal coming into this contest.
Daughter of George Vancouver out of a Cadeaux Genereux mare. Improving with every start finishing sixth of 12 beaten 2¾L in a Down Royal 5f maiden last month. More needed but could be a lively outsider.
Seven-race maiden was mainly found on the AW at Kempton for previous handler, Amanda Perrett. Pleasing fourth of 17 beaten 4L on debut for new connections and nothing to stop the daughter of Iffraaj improving here.
Daughter of Dream Ahead out of a Commander Collins mare. Dam winner of four of her 36 start. Others more appealing on the balance of her first couple of career starts recently.
Daughter of Vocalised out of a Rock Of Gibraltar mare. Dam, below-par two-race maiden. Ran free on debut run at Fairyhouse on Monday before dropping to finish sixth of 18 beaten 13L. Looks a tall order on second start.
Eight-race maiden, continuing to run well in defeat in a number of starts since May. Deserves a change in fortune and one worth a market check.
Mixed messages in four seasonal starts since March. Not the most reliable of sorts and hard to place any faith in.
Daughter of Dark Angel out of a Giant's Causeway mare. Dam placed on both career starts in France. Co Kildare yard better known for their older handicappers.
18-race maiden, goes well here hitting the frame in three of her five starts at the track including hitting the frame on a couple of occasions over C&D. Bold bid would not surprise.
Capable sort. Ran well in defeat in a Listowel 7f maiden earlier this month when finishing second of 15 beaten 3½L as joint favourite. One of the more intriguing contenders.
