510-12OR: D
6/5

Placed twice in bumpers for Christian Williams, and made a winning debut for current yard at Bangor. Ended season with fine fourth of 20 to Portrush Ted in Grade 2 event at Aintree, and looks a good prospect for hurdling. Shortlisted.

Form in bumpers was poor and he's not really shown any improvement over hurdles, adding temperament to CV when running out at Hexham last time.

Fourth on hurdles bow at Limerick for Sandra Hughes is a massive standout on his record, and well beaten on all other starts.

410-12OR:
6/1

Malinas gelding who won on sole start in point-to-points in Ireland, and was sold privately after failing to reach his reserve at Tattersalls sales at Cheltenham in March. One to bear in mind if market speaks for him.

410-12OR:

Similar form when third in bumpers at Wetherby and Hexham in the spring, and ought to find a race sooner or later, but appears to face a stiffish task on hurdles bow.

510-12OR:

Improved on a moderate debut effort when a staying-on sixth of 15 to Globetrotter in maiden at Hexham last month, but much more required here, and he will find easier openings when his stamina is drawn out.

50/1

Stowaway gelding who fetched €20,000 as a 3-y-o, and hails from family of Thisthatandtother and Carlingford Lough, but dam showed virtually nothing in a handful of starts, so best watched unless the subject of support.

Shirocco gelding who cost €50,000 as a 3-y-o, and shaped well amidst inexperience when third of 17 to Umndeni in bumper at Warwick in April. Market will indicate what's expected.

610-12OR: CD
6/4

Bought for £65,000 after an Irish point-to-point win in December and confirmed the promise of that with bumper wins at Sedgefield and here in January/February. Interesting hurdles prospect, and not taken lightly.

Pulled-up on both starts in Irish point-to-points, and fared little better on hurdles debut for new yard at Hexham on Saturday.

Betting

Forecast

Al Dancer (6/5), Windsor Avenue (6/4), First Account (6/1), Tedham (12/1), Torrid (16/1), Lough Legend (40/1), Raecius Felix (50/1), Maybe Mickey (66/1), Barney's Caulker (200/1), Ringaringarosie (250/1), Cataclysm (250/1)

Verdict

AL DANCER ran a fine race behind Portrush Ted in the Grade 2 bumper at Aintree in the spring, and is just preferred to the unbeaten Windsor Avenue as the pair switch to hurdles. First Account goes straight over hurdles having won his sole start between the flags in Ireland, and is also worthy of respect.
