HorseTrackerNational Lady (IRE)

coloursHad two useful juvenile runs and bumped into a smart newcomer on reappearance at Cork in April. Should pick up her maiden in the coming weeks.

HorseTrackerMother Nature (IRE)

coloursVery well bred, she was green on debut at Dundalk but showed a willing attitude and should do well this summer.

HorseTrackerMount Frisco (IRE)

coloursA busy five-year-old, his form is quite progressive and ran a fine race when finishing second in a Listed chase on March 9. Should continue to improve.

HorseTrackerSea Wave (IRE)

coloursWell-bred but no star, she bumped into a capable winner on February 16 and while time is running out at Dundalk, can win a middle-distance maiden soon.

HorseTrackerTrue Testimony (IRE)

coloursA keen-goer, she has taken a while to settle but both her January runs are encouraging and should win a maiden hurdle soon.

HorseTrackerKilbarry Saint (FR)

coloursA quirky type, she ran well on point-to-point debut and while her initial hurdles form was ordinary, showed her old sparkle when finishing second in a Gowran handicap on January25.

HorseTrackerLough Nigara (IRE)

coloursRan well when upped in distance on handicap debut in January. He will benefit from that experience and should win from his rating.

HorseTrackerJimmy Du Seuil (FR)

coloursHas useful French bumper form and while beaten by a stablemate when favourite for his Irish debut, should improve from that experience.
