Bought for £115,000 after winning a Chaddesley Corbett point-to-point. Yard took this two years ago and boast an impressive 8-15 strike rate in bumpers on this circuit since 2013.
Half-brother to Neil Mulholland's prolific scorer Solighoster and two French winners. Hooded for debut and yard 2-51 in similar races since 2013.
Unraced son of Black Sam Bellamy out of a dam who won four races for this trainer. Yard have a modest strike rate in these contests and many of their horses are needing a run.
Ran well to finish runner-up in a maiden point-to-point at Garthorpe (2m4f, good-to-soft) in March. Purchased for £15,000 by connections and shaped well having lost a shoe on his bumper debut. Stable 3-12 in last fortnight.
Nice mix of speed and stamina and full brother Coeur Blimey was a useful bumper winner. Runner-up here in May but that form looks nothing special now and this is likely to prove a much stronger heat. Stable 3-8 in bumpers here over past five years.
Sent of favourite for point-to-point debut when showing a willing attitude and a fair amount of pace in front. Joined current yard for £65,000 but they are not the force they once were in this type of event (4-43 in last two years).
Ran a cracker on debut to finish close up behind two previous winners, and is bred for speed too, so this sort of test should suit. Stable had a winner at Cheltenham on Friday and hard to dismiss.
Fourth to a highly regarded sort on debut but failed to build on that promise last month. Hood fitted now and faces a stiff task in a competitive event.
Has run to a similar level in three bumpers and chances are this will prove an even better race.
Pedigree makes him unappealing over this sort of trip being by Major Cadeaux out of a dam who won over 5f.
Represents the yard that took this in 2013 and 2016. Half-brother to a winning point-to-pointer. Stable on a good run and also 4-11 in bumpers since October.
€75,000 half-brother to Grand National hero One For Arthur and two other winners. There is some speed in the pedigree and the market will be informative.
€100,000 purchase out of a dam who is closely related to Grade Two winner Mossley. Yard 4-13 in the last week.
£34,000 half-brother to two bumper winners who liked very soft ground. Stable having a good season, but none the less are 0-13 in this class of race.
