£15,000 Multiplex gelding who is a half-brother to a bumper winner. Is one of two representing his yard and the market should give some idea of which of the two is more fancied. Yard in fine form.
Connections went to €30,000 to buy this gelded son of Arcadio who is a half-brother to two jumps winners. Looks the likelier of the two stable companions on balance.
Interesting pedigree for this €45,000 gelded son of Doyen who is related to a few winners, including a Grade 2 hurdles scorer. Yard capable of getting them ready so worth a glance in the betting market at very least.
Josr Algahoud gelding who is a half-brother to a winning 3m hurdler. Breeding suggests he'll probably be better over more of a trip, and yard is going through a quiet spell at present.
€16,000 son of little known French sire Carlotamix (won Group 1 as a juvenile in 2005). The fact he wears a hood for racecourse bow is somewhat disconcerting, and yard yet to get going this campaign so others make more appeal.
Cheaply purchased gelding by French sire Touch Of Land, out of an unraced mare. Doesn't jump off the page as a winner-in-waiting and may well need plenty more time.
By Native Ruler, out of a dam who is a half-sister to a Japanese Group 1 winner. Very interesting pedigree, and while yard not known for first-time bumper winners is still worth a check for any market interest.
Jockey booking ctaches the eye as too does the pedigree of this €50,000 gelding by Rip Van Winkle. His dam was a winner who also placed in LIsted compnay so he looks the part on paper. Major chance.
Havana Gold gelding who cost just £1,200 at auction last November. Dam won over a mile in Italy, and he is half-brother to four individual winners. Sales price is a concern though.
Yard has decent record in bumpers and this So You Think filly is one of the better bred contenders. Her dam has produced six individual winners so any market interest would be significant.
Filly by decent German sire Network, out of a dam who has produced a number of French jumps winners. Yard's newcomers usually need a run or two to reach a peak so may be best watched this time
