Has bumped into some useful sorts in maidens, including Snaffles on debut at Down Royal; 40-1 at Listowel latest (1m, yielding) when seventh of 15; needs to step up on that on first try in nursery.

Held by Bienvenue on Curragh running but worth noting that this represents a drop in class; possibly the pick of three runners for the stable.

0-7; good run when second in a Curragh handicap on last start in October; 4lb rise isn't ideal but seems highly likely to improve over this new trip given her pedigree; yard won this last year.

American-bred colt's turf form is all on easy ground, not looking to stay 1m on latest when decent third at the Curragh; interesting back in trip and on AW debut.

The pick of his 2yo form came when beaten 3l over C&D second time out and soft ground is a potential excuse for his lesser efforts towards the end of the campaign; fair bit to find to mix it with Boundless Ocean though.

Disappointing in maidens before showing a good attitude to beat Malayan in a Curragh nursery last month; sent off 33-1 when only ninth in the Ingabelle Stakes at Leopardstown last time.
