Daughter of Shantou out of a Welsh Term mare related to multiple winners Poly Peachum, and Death Duty. 25/1 and came home in his own time on debut in Gowran Park bumper in February. Watching brief on return to action.
Point-to-point winner in August, not set the world alight in maiden hurdles at Kilbeggan and Navan since. Had shown promise in bumpers in 2017. Must bounce back.
Daughter of Kayf Tara out of a Green Tune mare. Cost €40,000 as a three-year-old, under pressure a long way out in Killarney bumper in July on good ground, though not beaten all that far (last of six). Should be more to come, yard in flying form.
Gold Well mare, not disgraced in a Listowel bumper against her own sex last month (also ran well in one hurdles start). She will however need to improve to take this.
Blue Bresil mare, a €58,000 buy as a three-year-old for leading connections, finished 5L runner-up on debut at Ballinrobe (2m1½f, good) in July having set off odds-on favourite and tried to make all. There should be more to come.
Daughter of Stowaway out of a winning hurdler, no threat in bumpers at Sligo and Listowel so far and probably best watched for now.
Daughter of Court Cave out of an Alderbrook mare. Half-sister to Ollie Magern, and Bygones Of Brid, amongst other winners. Tailed off on debut at Galway last month (2m½f, soft) and was unfancied in the betting. Caution advised.
Daughter of Kalanisi out of a Carlingford Castle mare related to Katchit, Brain Power and Kalashnikov. Failed to beat anything bar the ambulance home in two spring bumpers here (2m4f soft) and Down Royal (2m, good). Has work to do returning.
Oscar filly. Half-sister to fairly useful hurdler Knockmaole Boy. Represents in-form Gordon Elliott team on debut and no shock to find her taking front rank.
Out of a sister to Grade 1 hurdle winner Pingshou, and dam has already produced a winner in this sphere by Flemensfirth. Promising third of 14 in Cork bumper (2m, soft to heavy) in May on debut, returns from a break and capable of better.
Beat Hollow filly. Half-sister to useful bumper winner Bordini. Makes plenty appeal on paper, yard in decent form and booking of Derek O'Connor always a positive.
