Leopardstown April 2nd


(Mrs J. Harrington)

He returned to the promise of his juvenile debut with a creditable fourth in the maiden won by Hotel Wren where he shaped quite nicely through the second half of the race.

He can progress further from here and looks up to winning a maiden with a step-up from a mile unlikely to present him with any difficulties.

Leopardstown April 2nd


(W. McCreery)

She had to settle for fifth in the Group 3 won by Homeless Songs but shaped better than the bare result after looking sure to play a leading role early in the straight.

She has acquitted herself in two starts at pattern level and can make her mark at stakes level at some point this season.

Cork April 3rd

Beauty Crescent

(G.M. Lyons)

The two-year-old maiden won by Crispy Cat last Sunday looked a useful contest and though unable to justify favouritism, this colt shaped up very well in second.

He finished out his race with purpose and the benefit of this initial outing will make him very hard to beat next time.

Leopardstown April 6th

Emily Dickinson

(A.P. O’Brien)

This half-sister to a pair of stakes performers out of the Irish Oaks winner Chicquita caught the eye with her fifth to Above The Curve On Wednesday.

After racing towards the rear of the field she got caught in traffic turning in but she finished out her race in taking fashion over the last furlong.

A maiden win will not be long in coming her way.

Gowran Park April 7th

Jupiter Express

(K.J. Condon)

This gelding beat just one rival in two starts in the early stages of last season, but there was a good deal more encouragement to be taken from his fifth to Stayincotai at Gowran Park on Thursday.

In a race dominated by those that raced prominently, this gelding did best of those to come from off the pace. He looks capable of making his mark as a three-year-old.
