Colt by Animal Kingdom out of a Scat Daddy mare. Dam unraced. Worth a check in the market on debut for Co Kilkenny yard with a 12% strike rate with their turf juveniles this term.
Gelding by Born To Rule out of a Speightstown mare. Cost €8,000 as a two-year-old. Dam, maiden, half-sister to Shaniko, US Grade 2 winner over 1m1f. Ran with credit on debut last month finishing within 5½L of the winner at the Curragh over 1m.
American Pharoah colt, cost $1m as a yearling. Half-brother to five winners including a Group 1 winner. Nothing of note as yet in a couple of disappointing efforts over this trip at the Curragh. Needs to improve here.
Mixed messages so far in three career starts since making his debut in May. Gelded and sports a first-time tongue tie here hoping to improve overall performance.
Son of Pivotal was beaten 10½L into seventh of 12 at the Curragh over 6f on debut in June before a similar scenario when stepping up to 7f at the same venue when last seen in August. Hard to make a case for.
Sent off at big prices in a couple of dismal career efforts since his debut last month, running accordingly on both occasions. Needs a sizable improvement to mix it here.
Colt by Oasis Dream out of an Indian Ridge mare. Closely related to winners on the Flat, Heartful and Malinka. Dam winner of three of her 15 starts on the Flat including Listed and Group 3 victories.
Dark Angel colt out of a Rock Of Gibraltar mare. Closely related to Justice Day, six-time winner running between 5f/6f including Listed win. Yards debutantes often need their first run.
Colt by Zoffany out of a Medicean mare. Dam, 12-race maiden. Entitled to need this on debut and others make more appeal.
By Slade Power who was retained by her vendor at auction is the first foal out of a 7f-1m2f winner including at two. Well held in a couple of initial career starts so far and others preferred.
Filly by Ivawood out of a Dubawi mare. Inexpensive yearling. Half-sister to 1m4f winner Khudha. Dam won over 6f as a two-year-old. Well down the field on debut run at Cork last month and plenty more needed in this contest.
