Make Believe filly who cost €30,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to three winners including Royal Razima (6f); no show on debut at Naas in September; likely to improve.
Cost 2000 euros as a yearling; related to staying types; likely to do better in time but worth a check in the market.
First foal; related to some useful middle distance performers as well as useful hurdlers; tongue-tied on debut; difficult to assess and market may provide clues.
Daughter of Hallowed Crown out of a USA bred mare.; finished mid.division on debut at this track in September; obviously open to improvement but will need to to play a leading role.
Excelebration filly; cost 20,000 euros as a two-year-old; closely related to Group winners up to 1m2f; likely type on breeding and one to note in betting.
Not particularly fashionably bred and stable not renowned for producing juvenile winners; best watched on debut.
Daughter of Make Believe out of a Medicean mare. Cost €75,000 as a yearling; stayed on strongly from a long way back on debut at The Curragh in September; should know her game better here and leading contender.
Two encouraging runs at Leopardstown and Cork in August/September suggests there will be races to be won with this filly; looks one of the better ones with racecourse experience.
Cheaply bought filly who is bred to stay much further in time; headgear applied on debut at Listowel in September where she ran very green; can improve but others preferred.
Closely related to some smart racehorses including Group 1 winner Casual Conquest; looks the type on breeding but market likely to give the best signals.
Did not really improve on her Bellewstown debut in August when running a similar lifeless race at Dundalk the following month; experience will have done her well but still seems an unlikely winner of this contest.
€6,500 yearling by Rock Of Gibraltar and is a half-sister E Cosi Sia. Dam was a winner over 7f. Poor efforts on first couple of starts over 6f/7f and liable to bump into a couple of stronger types.
Has not showed enough promise on her two racecourse appearances at Roscommon and Galway to suggest she will be winning anytime soon.
Daughter of Night Of Thunder out of a Cape Cross mare. Dam winner over 1m4f and 1m6f; never a factor on only racecourse appearance at The Curragh late last month; entitled to improve but hard to see her being good enough here.
