711-12OR: BF
7/2

Ran best race from three over hurdles in June over C&D, turned over as odds-on favourite on sole start since at Listowel (3m, heavy) 15 days ago. Perhaps better suited coming back in trip and is respected.

Black Sam Bellamy gelding out of a Midnight Legend mare, made perfect start when winning a 2m Listowel bumper this month with any amount in hand and is should hold strong claims now jumping hurdles.

711-5OR:

Bumper winner at Worcester in June 2015 on debut for Philip Hobbs, had problems and run just once since. First start for current handler and first attempt at jumping, market can steer expectation levels.

611-4OR:
9/4

Has squandered some decent chances in five bumper runs, often when supported. First time over hurdles and isn't one to dispense with just yet for top yard and connections.

50/1

Showed minor promise in bumpers last summer but regressing since, well held seven days over 2m5f at Galway on soft ground in a maiden hurdle, others make significantly more appeal now.

Some useful chasers in the family and fences will be where his future lies. Made very little impact on rules debut at Clonmel in June over 2m½f on good to yielding and off since.

611-4OR:
66/1

Not much to inspire in bumper efforts and suffered heavy defeat in 2m5f maiden hurdle at Galway a week ago having gone off at 33/1. Easier to look elsewhere for now.

610-11OR:

Well held in all three bumpers at up to 2m2½f so far, best watched on hurdles bow unless there is some market confidence on offer.

Betting

Forecast

Massey's Wood (10/11), Burren Life (9/4), Brave Poppy (7/2), Statistical (16/1), Epic Ethel (25/1), Drumbar Millie (33/1), Manhatton Island (50/1), Trump Sixteen (66/1)

Verdict

MASSEY'S WOOD made a very impressive debut when cutting out the running and readily drawing a long way clear of his rivals at Listowel this month to win a bumper. Having shown testing ground won't be an issue, he has to be greatly respected switching his attention to hurdles and looks set for a big run. The drop in distance should see former C&D runner-up Brave Poppy in a better light while Burren Life could be capable of better in this sphere having run well without registering in bumpers for Gordon Elliott.
