HorseTrackerMaster McShee (GB)

coloursIndicated some ability on bumper debut but really stepped forward when switched to hurdles after a summer break in a 2m Cork maiden. He was the only one to put it up to a top class rival in the straight as the pair drew clear, and should be able to land a similar event.

HorseTrackerGenois (FR)

coloursUnfancied on debut but ran a cracker when beating all bar the two clear market leaders in a 20-runner maiden hurdle at Navan. Stays at least 2m4f and looks sure to win a similar event.

HorseTrackerSpilt Passion (IRE)

Cost 160,000 at the Goffs Orby Sale and unfancied stable second-string when making a very promising debut in a fillies maiden at Dundalk. Kept on well from off the pace and looks sure to benefit from the experience.

HorseTrackerAgrimony (GB)

coloursUnfancied on debut at Punchestown but showed plenty of potential, making good headway in the straight and keeping on well behind the odds-on favourite. Looks sure to progress and well capable of a maiden success.

HorseTrackerEbeneezer Perry (GB)

coloursCost 80,000 at Doncaster as a yearling and shaped well on debut from a wide draw at Leopardstown. Took a while to get going in the straight but the penny really started to drop in the closing stages and looks sure to benefit from this experience. Stays at least 7f.
