Foaled March 3. €4,500 yearling, Elzaam colt. Dam 2-y-o 7f winner. Wears tongue strap for debut and probably best watched unless market vibes are positive.
Foaled February 27. €18,000 yearling, Coulsty gelding. Dam, 5f winner, sister to useful 5f-7f winner Crimson Fern.
Foaled March 30. Kodiac colt. Dam, winner up to 8.6f (2-y-o 1m winner), half-sister to smart 9f/1¼m winner Gifts of Gold. Sixth of 11 to Star Official in barrier trial at Dundalk in September.
Foaled February 27. €5,000 yearling, Kodi Bear filly. Half-sister to 2-y-o 6f winner Golden Ping. Dam 2-y-o 1m winner.
Once-raced gelding. 80/1, tenth of 12 in maiden at Navan (5.8f, good to soft) on debut 7 days ago, unable to sustain effort. May well do better longer term.

Foaled April 21. €5,000 yearling, Dragon Pulse gelding. Rates a likely outsider on racecourse bow.
Twice-raced colt. 6/1, second of 6 in maiden at Bellewstown (5f, heavy) 21 days ago. No reason why he won't be in the shake up again with a repeat here.

Twice-raced colt. 20/1, fourth of 8 in maiden at Bellewstown (5f, soft) 22 days ago. Not discounted for each-way purposes for all nurseries may be more his bag in due course.

Thrice-raced filly. Matched previous best when fourth of 17 in maiden at Navan (5.8f 12 days ago. Proving consistent rather than progressive but she's a real player in a race lacking depth.
|05/09/20||Navan||4/17||Flat||5f 164y||Gd/sft||8st 10lbs||W. M. Lordan||5.74|

|23/06/20||Navan||2/10||Flat||5f 164y||Gd/sft||8st 8lbs||W. M. Lordan||7|
GISELLES THUNDER is proving consistent rather than progressive but she again ran well 12 days ago and a repeat of that performance may be enough to see her come home in front in an ordinary-looking affair. Mr Fayez rates next best ahead of Basharat.
