Won in a very pleasing manner on bumper debut at Roscommon in June and comes in to consideration despite a dismal maiden hurdle debut at Thurles in November.
Distance winner in a Tramore bumper when beating six rivals on his fourth national hunt Flat start when last seen in October. Place claims at best.
By Flemensfirth out of a Turtle Island mare. €50,00 as a three-year-old and with a powerful owner/trainer combination and expected to improve for debut run here.
Scorpion gelding out of a Key Of Luck mare related to Might Bite and Don't Touch It. expected to improve for debut run here.
Gelding by Captain Rio out of a Medicean mare related to multiple national hunt winners Jumbo Rio and Hollo Ladies. Yard without a winner or a place from 13 runners this season.
Son of Ask and a half-brother to winner Mahler And Me. Will come on for debut when finishing second of five beaten 2¼L in a Clonmel bumper in March. Capable of having his say.
Arakan gelding out of a Craigsteel mare has failed to finish in two point-to-point starts this year and doesn't warrant support here.
Kaieteur horse (entire) out of a Flemensfirth mare. Not much to go on in terms of pedigree and ran green on debut in a Navan bumper in March. Expected to find a couple quicker than him here.
Stowaway filly out of a Lomitas mare. Sire has plenty of successful national hunt progeny with the likes of Hidden Cyclone, Champagne Fever and Outlander. Promising third of eight on debut here in September and expected to go well following break.
Daughter of Lonhro out of a Danehill mare went for just £800 at Ascot in December 2016. In the right hands but best watched on racecourse debut here.
