The experience picked up first time out at Navan can give ROCKVIEW SPIRIT an edge over newcomers Nitro Boost and Cuileann.
J: Gary Halpin
T: M D O'Callaghan
75,000 euro purchase, half-brother to five modest winners including Capeslew (best RPR of 81). The yard has hit a cold patch, as has the jockey and the market is the best guide as to expectations.
Half-brother to five winners none of whom have been out of the ordinary, best RPR 81
J: Colin Keane
T: Adrian Paul Keatley
Price decreased by 25,000 euros from yearling to two-year-old, an already gelded son of Dragon Pulse. He's half-brother to five winners including some useful types and the jockey booking is positive, so a case can be made.
Half-brother to five winners notably Eddie Jock, 33-1 winner of 2005 Britannia Handicap
J: N G McCullagh
T: M C Grassick
Daughter of Slade Power with plenty of speed in her pedigree, her dam being a modest five-furlong. She doesn't particularly catch the eye on pedigree but a market check is advised on debut.
Plenty of speed in the pedigree, by Slade Power out of 5f winner by Bushranger
J: Chris Hayes
T: D J Bunyan
Pitched into the deep end on debut in Listed company, finishing eighth. Her sights are now drastically lowered and she should have learned plenty from the experience. Top jockey retains the ride, interesting claims.
Made debut in a Listed race, should do a bit better now that her sights are lowered
J: Kevin Manning
T: J S Bolger
Daughter of Vocalised whose pedigree suggests she'll need much further than this, sister to a mile winner. The yard can ready them first time up, but she looks vulnerable to something speedier.
Sister to a 1m AW winner, slight concern on pedigree that this trip may be inadequate
J: Donagh O'Connor
T: J F Levins
£120,000 yearling who was sent off 50/1 on debut, only able to beat one rival home in a fourteen-runner contest. Her pedigree suggests she should be capable of much better, but she'll need marked improvement to be threatening.
50-1 when finishing with only one behind her over 6f at this venue in May
J: Ben Coen
T: Andrew Slattery
Not much to go off on paper, sent off 33/1 on debut over six furlongs at Fairyhouse in July, finishing a promising sixth. A drop in distance should suit based on that evidence and improvement couldn't be discounted.
Showed a fair degree of promise when 33-1 on Fairyhouse debut, likely to improve
J: W J Lee
T: W McCreery
90,000 euro purchase, a daughter of Dandy Man who is a half-sister to 2016 Norfolk winner Prince Of Lir. She makes a huge amount of appeal on paper and the yard are more than capable of readying their newcomers.
By Dandy Man, interesting as a half-sister to the 2016 Norfolk Stakes winner Prince Of Lir
J: Gavin Ryan
T: Anthony Mullins
Not sold for 9,500 euros as a foal, a daughter of Zebedee with a modest pedigree compared to many of these. She is likely to flash plenty of speed but wouldn't be an obvious winner on paper.
Zebedee filly out of an unraced Acclamation mare, not one of the more obvious types here
J: Gary Carroll
T: John C McConnell
Made her debut in a good quality maiden at Navan, shaping with plenty of promise to finish third. She sets the form standard on that run and the stable is amongst the winners. Unlikely to be far away.
Appeals as the best of those with form by virtue of encouraging Navan third on first start
