€10,000 yearling, Fascinating Rock gelding. Half-brother to 2-y-o 6f winner French Rain. Interesting that Colin Keane rides.
Fairly useful form when second in 7f maiden at Gowran (head behind Ones Are Wild) in October, standout effort at 2 yrs. Will stay this trip and there is a race in him.

Third of 18 in maiden at the Curragh (8f, soft, 22/1) on debut for James M. Barrett 6 months ago. Chased home a very promising Ballydoyle filly there and could progress plenty.

Eighth of 14 in maiden at Dundalk (7f, 11/2) on debut 41 days ago, not knocked about. Trainer going well and 1 of 2 from yard. Should improve.

€32,000 yearling, resold 50,000 gns yearling, Camacho gelding. Dam, 8.6f/9.5f winner, closely related to smart 2-y-o 6f winner (stayed 1m) Allicansayis Wow.
€4,000 yearling, Dawn Approach gelding. Half-brother to several winners, including US 2-y-o 5.5f winner Fun Elusive.
Seventh of 16 in maiden at Navan (8f, heavy, 50/1) on debut 12 days ago. From a good family and should have more to offer.
|27/03/21||Navan||7/16||Flat||1m||Heavy||9st 7lbs||G. F. Carroll||160|
War Command gelding. Half-brother to 3 winners, including 6f-7.4f winner Lake George and ungenuine 1m winner King of Leinster. Dam unraced.

€4,000 yearling, Elzaam gelding. Half-brother to 2 winners, including hurdling breakout star Jeff Kidder. May need more time.
Twice-raced gelding. 33/1, twelfth of 23 in maiden at Naas (5.9f, heavy) 11 days ago. Significantly up in trip.
|28/03/21||Naas||12/23||Flat||5f 205y||Heavy||9st 7lbs||L. T. McAteer||75|
|21/03/21||Curragh||13/20||Flat||7f||Soft||9st 7lbs||Danny Redmond||53.84|
EMPORIO did little wrong in defeat in 3 autumn maidens and could be the type to progress plenty in 2021, his Classic entries boding well. Star Official wasn't far behind the very promising Santa Barbara on debut at the Curragh in September and may have a lot more to offer for new connections. Skilled Warrior is also respected back in trip.
