512-0OR:
4/7

Beat Hollow gelding is a half-brother to bumper winner Itsonlyrocknroll. Represents the best in the business on debut, likely to be popular.

612-0OR:
50/1

Hasn't made any significant impact so in point-to-points, with new handler for rules bow and likely proves best watched.

Central Park gelding, from a decent family and not one to discount totally, market should give clearer indication.

Last RunWatch last race

411-10OR:
10/3

Fair form only in two point-to-point runs in the spring, returns from an absence and booking of Jamie Codd is promising. Needs market check.

5/1

By Curtain Time out of a Hawk Wing mare. Cost €15,000 as a three-year-old. Half-brother to Texas Jack and recent winner Freewheelin Dylan.

411-10OR:

Flat-bred colt out of New Approach, picked up for minor money at the sales and likely can only be watched on debut.

411-10OR:
10/1

Aizavoski gelding. Dam unraced half-sister to fairly useful hurdler/useful chaser Bowleaze. Stamina could prove a forte in long term.

411-10OR:
50/1

Aizavoski gelding, doesn't make dramatic appeal on paper, sports hood on first start and one of two for the trainer in this field, market can sort them out.

25/1

Court Cave filly whose dam was lightly raced in bumpers/over hurdles. Not the most appealing on paper ahead of debut outing.

Betting

Forecast

Golazo (4/7), Abacadabras (5/2), Bathiva (10/3), Behind The Curtain (5/1), Chapmanshype (10/1), Pin Point Parity (25/1), Pakens Rock (33/1), Castle Valley (40/1), Longfordwood Lad (50/1), Lasso Dourado (50/1)

Verdict

The Mullins bumper wagon rolls on, with Patrick riding the winner here on Tuesday, scoring decisively despite being easy to back. GOLAZO is related to a winner in this sphere and looks as good as any on paper with no form under rules to count on. Abacadabras also has plenty going for him for a yard in excellent form (trainer/jockey took this race last year) while the booking of Jamie Codd suggests Bathiva may improve on point-to-point form from the spring. Behind The Curtain is another likely sort on paper.
