17:30 Sedgefield Sun 21 October 2018
£10,000 3yo (sold privately recently); second foal out of an unraced dam who was a half-sister to the 2m4f hurdle winner Cuteasafox; market helpful in assessing his chance.
£2,200 yearling; well beaten on both starts so far, including at odds of 80/1 at Kelso (2m) just over a month ago; unlikely.
Third foal; half-brother to point/3m hurdle winner Mollies Glen; dam out of a bumper winning mare; first ever Sedgefield runner for County Kildare trainer Peter Fahey.
€4,000 3yo; half-brother to a couple of French winning chasers; very creditable (weakening) 3L third to Earlofthecotswolds at Market Rasen (2m+, good) in September; trainer 4-14 (29%) here since 2008.
First foal out of an unraced dam who was a half-sister to the 2m4f-4m hurdle/chase winner Universal Soldier and the 3m-3m1f hurdle winner Skipthescales; hooded for debut on ground likely to be riding plenty quick enough.
Eighth foal; closely related to the 2m-2m2f hurdle/chase winner Kilmurry; tongue-tied for debut; her County Down trainer is 0-2 at Sedgefield since 2008.
Half-sister to bumper winner Tom Lamb, and the latest filly out of a fine family line; seemingly much improved for wind surgery, and her ¾L C&D second to C'Est Le Bonheur sets a mightily strong benchmark for the others.
£2,200 yearling; third foal; dam an unraced half-sister to the French 1m4f Listed winner Christel Flame and the useful 2m-2m6f hurdle/chase winner Bold Fire.
