Generally well held and no impression on the winners in three career starts so far since the Born To Sea colt made his debut in June. Plenty to prove at present an handicap debut.

Six-race maiden failed to build on promising career best effort at Tipperary last month with an 8L defeat in a Naas 1m contest on handicap debut earlier this month. Can give a good account without posing serious threat to principals.

Free Eagle filly who is a half-sister to an 1m/1m2f AW Winner. Well beaten and never nearer in three starts to date. Looks opposable on handicap debut.

By Tagula out of a maiden that was modest on the Flat and over hurdles. Hints of promise in three maiden starts since June and worth a market check on handicap debut.

Significant progress in a Sligo 5½f contest on handicap debut last month finishing second of 13 beaten 2L behind In From The Cold. Still looks well treated and one for the shortlist.

Failed to build on a promising run at Down Royal last month on handicap debut with a below-par effort at Naas over 1m earlier this month. Needs a couple to falter.

Five-race maiden for trainer Gavin Cromwell, well held in a couple of handicaps for the yard within the last month. Market likely to be the best guide on stable debut.

Has failed to hit the frame in any of her six career starts to date. Not disgraced in a couple of starts over 7f and no surprise to witness a big run dropping in trip.

Five-race maiden well beaten on handicap debut in a Naas 1m contest on good ground earlier this month. Yard in good form and sports first time blinkers here. Would not surprise to see the gelding play a part in the finish.

Es Que Love gelding. Cost €6,000 yearling. Related to 7f winner Sorella Bay. Well beaten and never nearer in three career starts so far and others readily preferred.

Three-race maiden before improving on fourth start on handicap debut in a Naas 1m contest on good ground when finishing fifth of 20 beaten 6½L earlier this month. Capable of a bold bid dropped 3lb.

Has failed to register a meaningful effort in four career maiden auction races since her debut in July. Profile suggests she is worth taking on again on handicap debut.

Below-par efforts in maiden company since March before finishing second of eight beaten ½L in a Naas 5f contest on handicap debut earlier this month. Entitled to have designs on prize money in this contest.

Well beaten and no impression in three career maiden starts since April for leading trainer. Looks on a dangerous mark for handicap debut.

Sent off at big prices in three career maidens so far, running accordingly on each occasion and unlikely to be making a significant impact on handicap debut.

Filly by Morpheus out of an Include mare. Cost €7,000 as a yearling. Three initial maiden starts since April may not appear as bad as they look as the youngster makes her handicap debut here.

Hints of promise and improvement on handicap debut at Sligo last month but the daughter of Dragon Pulse is still hard to fancy on the balance of three dismal maiden efforts previously.

Five-race maiden has now left the Ado McGuinness yard. First time cheekpieces doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed to play a role here on first start for new connections.

Well held at big prices in four below-par starts since her debut in July. Needs a chunk of improvement to play a role on handicap debut here.

Last Year's Winner

Last year's winner is unavailable



Convincer (9/2), Yolo Aris (6/1), The King Of Kells (13/2), Scholastic (8/1), Myrcella (9/1), Gunmetal Jack (10/1), Amelia Jane (12/1), Total Euphoria (12/1), Sondheim (14/1), Pikaia (16/1), Burren Orchid (16/1), Portara (20/1), Kosman (20/1), Bass Reeves (20/1), Half Nutz (20/1), Dragon Of Malta (25/1), Graduate Goddess (25/1), Sea Breezer (25/1), Megans Beau (33/1), Made In Pimlico (40/1)


Trainer Aidan O'Brien boasts a 48% win and place strike rate with his first-time handicappers in the last 12 months. Flowering Peach and Il Paradiso both won in July on handicap debut, both ridden by jockey Wayne Lordan. SCHOLASTIC can get off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking getting the better of potential improver Yolo Aris, the Ger Lyons-trained Convincer and recent Naas runner-up The King Of Kells. The Willie McCreery-trained Amelia Jane could run well at a price dropping in trip.
