HorseTrackerMalina Girl (IRE)

coloursAttracted good support on debut in a Tramore mares' bumper and, despite struggling to handle the tight and undulating track, finished strongly to split the two market leaders. Should benefit from this experience and can win a similar event.

HorseTrackerEgyptian Rock (IRE)

Well-backed when slowly away on debut in a 21-runner Curragh maiden but kept on well inside the final quarter mile. Looks well capable of winning a similar event with this experience under his belt and should stay a mile and a half in time.

HorseTrackerAnnerville (IRE)

Ran green and didn't enjoy a clear run in the straight when making a very promising debut in a Leopardstown fillies maiden. Looks sure to benefit from the run and well capable of winning a similar event. Stays at least 1m2f.

HorseTrackerCamino Mission (IRE)

coloursDrawn wide & unfancied when making an eye-catching debut at Navan, eating up the ground in the closing stages under a considerate ride. Sprinting pedigree but stayed 10f well on debut.

HorseTrackerWalter Grey (IRE)

coloursBelied odds of 100/1 when running a cracker on debut in a winners' bumper at Naas. Only gave best to the highly regarded hot-favourite inside the final furlong and looks sure to win races if building on this initial effort.

HorseTrackerPowerful Aggie (FR)

coloursEasy to back and slowly away on debut at Dundalk before keeping on well in the straight. Looks sure to progress from this experience and, being from the first crop of Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist, should stay at least a mile.

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.

HorseTrackerDicey Mo Chara (GB)

coloursHalf-brother to six winners and showed plenty of promise when unfancied on debut over a mile at Dundalk. Took a while for the penny to drop but finished strongly when just failing to peg back the odds-on favourite. Looks sure to progress from this experience.

HorseTrackerCollins (FR)

coloursCost 115,000 at the Derby Sale, dam stayed well and from family of Montjeu. Well-fancied on debut when patiently ridden in a Leopardstown bumper where denied a clear run at a vital stage before staying on well in the straight to take third. Should progress from this experience and gain compensation soon.
