Showcasing colt out of a Royal Applause gelding. Running well in defeat in four career starts so far and likely to be of interest on AW debut.
Off the mark for connections at the fifth time of asking when winning on AW debut over C&D earlier this month leading an 11-runner field and beating Spirit Of Sahara 1¼L. More to come.
Off the mark for connections at the sixth time of asking in a Naas 6f claimer before finishing second in a similar contest at Fairyhouse last month. Market likely to reveal expectations on AW introduction.
Five-race maiden but running well in defeat in a number of career starts since debut in July. One of two in the race for leading yard, among the winners here in the last month.
Seven-race maiden, running well in defeat over the summer before disappointing a couple of times in recent starts at Naas and the Curragh last month. More needed but no surprise to witness improvement.
€70,000 yearling, War Command colt. Experienced five-race maiden yet to hit the frame on any of his career starts. Market check on AW debut.
Daughter of Epaulette retained by vendor for €12,000 as a yearling. Posted a career best when finishing 3¼L off the Winner Stone Circle in a Curragh 6½f contest on good ground before disappointing at Cork earlier this month. Others preferred.
Gelding by Tough As Nails out of a Trade Fair mare. Mixed bag so far in four career starts. Yard among the winners recently and capable of a big run on AW debut.
Ran with credit on AW debut over C&D earlier this month when running Leadership Race to 1¾L when finishing third of 11. Strong possibilities the gelding will give a good account of himself once again.
Five-race maiden well beaten in a number of starts on turf but has a career best effort to his name over C&D earlier this month. Bit more needed but enters calculations with rising star of the weighing room in the saddle.
Cost 100,000 euros as a yearlings and is related to many winners including Group 1 winner as a juvenile Dick Whittington. Career best effort when running Leadership Race to 1¼L on AW debut over C&D earlier this month. One to note in this contest.
Free Eagle filly who is a half-sister to an 1m/1m2f AW Winner. Improved effort on the fourth start of her career at the Curragh last month over 6f on heavy ground but looks up against it on AW debut.
Footstepsinthesand filly out of a Rail Link mare. Dam, two-year-old winner over 7f. Not much to shout about in three career efforts to date appears opposable once again.
Daughter of War Command out of an Exceed And Excel mare. Well held in three career starts so far including when finishing in midfield on AW debut over C&D earlier this month. Yard going well and hard to dismiss.
