Winner of her maiden at Naas in June the daughter of Zoffany has since finished last of 10 in a Group 2 contest over 6f and was beaten 5¼L in the Group 3 Flame Of Tara Stakes at this venue last month. Others more convincing.
Progressive sort. Off the mark at the fourth attempt when landing a Naas 6f maiden on good ground earlier this month winning by 1¾L. Likely to continue flourishing but plenty to prove in this company.
Winner on her second career start when landing a 7f contest over C&D last month beating seven rivals ¾L. Short of room inside the final furlong before finishing seventh of nine in the Group 2 Debutante' Stakes here over a similar trip.
No Nay Never filly who cost a hefty €700,000 at the sales. Never threatening fourth of 18 on debut in a Naas 6f maiden on good ground this month. Yard have won this contest in four of the last seven renewals including 12 months ago with Hermosa.
Daughter of New Approach out of a Giant's Causeway mare. Cost 32,000gns as a foal. Encouraging debut when finishing fourth of 12 beaten 4L in a Cork 1m maiden earlier this month. Entitled to improve but set a tough assignment.
Winner of a Fairyhouse maiden in July the No Nay Never filly will have disappointed connections with her run at Naas over 6f last month. Not a forlorn hope but plenty more needed at this level.
Landed a Galway 7f soft ground maiden earlier this month to win on her second career start, winning by a head from six rivals. More demanded in this grade but no reason the daughter of Iffraaj cannot increase her profile here.
Running with plenty of promise when knocking on the door in a couple of maiden contests at Leopardstown and more recently at Tipperary last month. Rates a leading contender for respected connections.
Daughter of Zoffany out of a Linamix mare. Fairly well bred related to numerous middle distance French winners. Touched off in first couple of career starts at Cork both running over 1m. Not to be taken lightly given the form of the yards juveniles.
