Cost £25,000 after making a winning point-to point debut (had something in hand) and made a winning debut in impressive style at Fontwell recently in a slowly-run bumper. In control a long way out there and the type to carry a penalty.
An easy winner on her debut at Southwell when she was sent off as a 6/4 favourite and there could be more to come as she came from an unpromising position there in a slowly run race. Has an appealing pedigree and remains a strong contender.
Could well make further progress but looks the least likely of the three penalised winners to do so. Has clearly learnt plenty from her debut when winning at Newton Abbot last time but now rejected by the winning rider there.
Dam ran twice in bumpers (unplaced) this first foal doesn't make a huge appeal on debut. Trainer is only 1/24 in this sphere in past five seasons and she's best watched on her debut.
Has shown some ability in point-to-points in Ireland but was well beaten each time. Makes her debut here under Rules with the trainer having a 0/5 record in GB bumpers; best watched.
Cost £30,000 after winning a mares' maiden point-to-point in Ireland on her second start. Trainer is no stranger to winners in this sphere and she could take a hand on her debut. Worth watching in the market.
Showed better form on her first two starts in bumpers when trained in Ireland although she couldn't quite build on those two efforts last time (raced wide). Now debuts with a new yard who are yet to have a bumper winner.
Dam was a bumper winner on heavy ground who was also placed over hurdles who was also a half-sister top a French hurdles/chase winner. Yard have a good record in bumpers in worth a glance in the betting.
Has an interesting pedigree being a half-sister to a dual Listed winner on the Flat at up to a mile. Dam was also a mile winner on the Flat and the trainer has a decent record with bumper newcomers; of interest with betting strength.
Behind Malindi Bay on her debut she did show a little bit of ability and something to build on (looked in need of the experience). Got outpaced on that outing and work to do to turn the tables on the Fontwell Park winner.
Half-sister to a couple of useful winners in Royal Player and Pires she makes her debut here. The yard have a poor bumper record though (just 5% strike rate last five years) and this one is best watched here.
Made an encouraging start to her career finishing second to a well backed favourite on her debut at Chepstow. Looked in need of the experience there and could well go one better here if she is ready to go after a break.
Comes from a yard that are in good form (generally start the season well) and with a 14% strike-rate in this sphere over the last five years. Dam was a maiden hurdle winner and would enter calculations if supported in the market.
Interesting debutante on pedigree as she is a half-sister to three winners most notably Synchronised who won the Gold Cup for the same connections. All of that suggests that she will need further but has to be respected.
