Off the mark at the sixth time of asking latest when winning a 5f Nusery contest at Naas by ½L. Beaten since but entitled to make the shortlist on AW debut.
Seven-race maiden, well held overall in three AW starts at Wolverhampton and over C&D earlier this month. First-time cheekpieces needed to work their magic.
€300,000 juvenile. Half-sister to notable performer Donjuan Triumphant. Continues to improve with every start and worth a market check on handicap debut in this contest.
Seven-race maiden but has hit the frame on a couple of occasions, including when third of eight beaten 2L at Naas over 5f before a disappointing effort, looking one-pace at Fairyhouse over 6f last month. Not totally ruled out noting jockey booking.
Three-race maiden, never threatening to the winners in a couple of starts here since the colt by Fulbright made his debut in July. Market likely to reveal expectations on handicap debut in first-time blinkers.
Four-race maiden well beaten and no impression in the colts three starts since July. First time visor unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Daughter of Kitten's Joy. Not completely disgraced in a couple of career starts at Cork and in a Navan 5½f maiden last month before a dismal effort over 7f at this venue earlier this month. Best watched unless market vibes suggest otherwise.
Has appeared a little laboured in three career starts so far. Overall record casts doubt on his ability to get competitive in this company on handicap debut.
