HorseTrackerSerious Notions (GB)

coloursHad smart juvenile turf form last year before underperforming twice on the all-weather. She ran better than her finishing position suggests on Gowran seasonal reappearance, as she was very badly drawn.

HorseTrackerLucky Melody (IRE)

coloursA half-sister to high-class Lucky Vega, she won a barrier trial in May and on her Leopardstown debut, shaped as though she would win a maiden over a longer distance soon.

HorseTrackerBabouche (GB)

coloursWell-bred and highly regarded for her Cork debut, she won impressively and looks the type which can readily step into stakes company and score.

HorseTrackerVa Va Vroom (IRE)

coloursA Barrier Trial winner, she chased home a potentially smart winner when finishing second on Gowran debut and will take beating in an upcoming maiden.

HorseTrackerHazdann (IRE)

coloursAga Khan owned-and-bred, he met trouble in-running on debut at Gowran and should improve considerably from that introduction.

HorseTrackerBetula (GB)

coloursHad smart juvenile form last year and should improve considerably from her Down Royal run in May - which was her first run for seven months. Looks likely to win a maiden soon.

HorseTrackerFeud (GB)

coloursA half-brother to 1,000 Guineas winner Fallen Angel, he won easily on his hurdling debut at Listowel and should be followed over the coming months.

HorseTrackerCancelled (IRE)

coloursShe was beaten by a racey Punchestown festival winner when finishing second on her debut at Cork and defeated a four-time bumper winner into fourth. She looks sure to win soon.

HorseTrackerBabich (IRE)

coloursRan quite well in his Killarney debut run in May on a difficult track for newcomers. He was narrowly beaten by an experienced winner then.
