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.

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.
