Dam half-sister to the yard's very useful Court Minstrel, and this one has shown more than enough in two starts to think he can take a hand in the finish here. Ground and track should be fine and every chance of success.
Poor form in point-to-points and yard not known for bumper winners. Not hard to look elsewhere for the winner.
Yard are 0-13 in bumpers last five years and this one makes only minimal appeal on pedigree. Easy enough to look elsewhere.
Dam a full sister to the useful hurdler Lieutenant Miller, but this one was a bit disappointing on debut at Newton Abbot last month, fading rather quickly. Yard 1-5 in bumpers here last five years. May improve.
Half-brother to useful hurdle winners Hello Sweetie and Close Shave, didn't to too badly when fourth on debut at Towcester and this less demanding track may help. Yard 1-6 with their bumper runners here last five years.
Yard 5-10 in bumpers here last five years, so has that as a very positive stat, and this is the first start for them after leaving Tom Lacey. May leave previous form behind and is worth a look in the market.
Half-sister to the very useful hurdler/chaser J'y Vole, but looked to need more time after a finishing well beaten at Aintree on only start. Best watched here.
Better effort at Towcester last time but that still leaves her some way short of what's required here. Others make more appeal.
Attracted a bit of support for her debut at Plumpton and wasn't disgraced in finishing fifth, although looked in need of more of a test than she may get today.
Point-to-point winner last month, although it was a modest event and she lacked the pace to win a 2m point-to-point in April. In good hands but others preferred.
Only beat one home on debut at Kempton and 33/1 price tag suggested that not too much was expected anyway. Can only be watched here.
