Winner of a Killarney 2m1f bumper in August before a couple of reversals in similar company in October/November. Tongue strap on for first start on the Flat.
By Society Rock out of a 1m winning dam. Half-brother to seven winners including Redolent successful between 7f/1m. Not seen since an encouraging debut at Redcar in May last year on sole start for trainer Roger Varian. One to note in the market.
Five-race maiden but not without ability in a couple of starts at Nottingham and Ripon in August, his final starts for trainer Roger Varian. Repeat of turf efforts would herald a bold bid on stable debut.
Seven-race maiden on the Flat. Well beaten in couple of hurdling exploits since October but should not be taken lightly on return to this surface.
Three-race maiden. Makes little appeal based on what the son of Magician has shown for current connections so far.
Has failed to go on since good second at Leicester on debut but showed glimmer of hope when 7L behind Good Tidings at Lingfield in September and on his final start for trainer Simon Crisford at Newcastle in October. Watching brief on stable debut.
Running with much credit in a couple of starts over C&D since October finishing within 2¼ of the winner on both occasions in handicap company. Has potential to go well back in this company.
By Frankel out of a Zafeen mare. Cost a hefty €300,000 as a yearling. Nothing of note on dismal debut effort at Sandown over 1m2f on sole start for trainer Sir Michael Stoute. Can only improve on stable debut.
Posted a career best effort when finishing third of 14 beaten 2½L behind Grandmaster Flash over 1m4f last month. Good run over C&D on debut in May and can go well once again.
Gelding by Teofilo out of a Montjeu mare. Brother to several winners including Parish Hall and Hall Of Fame, winner over 1m as a two-year-old. Looks interesting on debut.
Infrequent visits to the track will not be helping the daughter of Yeats as she bids to progress in the game. Well held in a couple of starts at this venue previously and has a bit to prove at present.
Winner of a Killarney 2m1f bumper in July but has produced a couple of innocuous efforts since in October/November. Best watched on Flat debut.
Useful 100-rated handicap hurdler for connections. Ran well in defeat over 1m4f last month finishing fourth of 14 beaten 3¼L behind Grandmaster Flash at this venue. Lively outsider.
Rock Of Gibraltar filly who cost €1,800 as a yearling. Her dam only raced twice without success. It is unlikely that she will prevail at the first time of asking so best to watch for now.
