HorseTrackerMia Mento (IRE)

coloursOften losses ground at the start and tends to race keenly but looks well capable of winning off her current mark. Very unlucky in running on latest in a valuable Curragh event. Suited by 7f and a sound surface.

HorseTrackerPoint Gellibrand (IRE)

coloursPromising debut at the Curragh when repeatedly denied a clear passage and showed there was plenty in the locker when finally getting an opening in the closing stages. Looks sure to win a maiden and hopefully progress further in time.

HorseTrackerKarlsberg (IRE)

coloursSoundly beaten in three maiden outings before shaping well on handicap debut in a 30-runner Curragh event. Came from well off the pace and probably favoured by her high draw to take third close home. Stays at least six furlongs and should progress.

HorseTrackerHeavenly Body (IRE)

coloursAttracted some support on debut but lost any chance at the start when very slowly away from stalls. However, the New Bay filly out of a 5f juvenile winner showed the confidence beforehand wasn't misplaced by keeping on well in the straight. Looks capable of winning an auction maiden.

HorseTrackerFair Frontieres (IRE)

coloursShowed some promise in a point at Kilfeacle & wore a hood but settled quite well when running a cracker on debut under rules in a 2m4f Navan maiden hurdle. Just headed final strides by the odds-on favourite on very testing ground & looks well capable of winning a similar event.
