Showed very little on his bumper debut at Fontwell over a shorter trip and despite a decent pedigree he looks of limited ability.
Bumper debutante from a yard which can get one ready first-time up but are not known for their bumper winners (1/20 last five years). Closely related to a couple of bumper winners and one to watch in the market.
Yard have a 24% bumper strike-rate in the last five years and are already off the mark this season. This debutante is a half-sister to a bumper winner out of an unraced mare who is hooded for her debut who has to be respected given connections.
Well held in two bumpers so far at Towcester and Huntingdon doing little better on the second occasion than she did on her debut.
One of two runners for a leading trainer in this sphere who looks the pick of the duo on jockey bookings. Cost €40,000 as a three-year-old with some useful relations in her pedigree including Big Buck's on the distaff side.
Trainer 1/35 in this sphere in the last five seasons and this one looked very much one for the longer term on her Fontwell debut. She did have Storm Fire behind her there and should beat that one home again.
