Frankie rides Asyad, a €230,000 yearling and half-sister to two winners, for Sir Michael Stoute and Jamie Spencer is on board Stybba for Andrew Balding. She's a full sister to winning juvenile Jira and both newcomers warrants a market check here along with Richard Hannon's Lustrous. But AN CHULAINN sets a decent standard on her third in a valuable sales race at the Curragh and can make the most of her experience. The remainder are likely to need more time.
