411-7OR: D
16/1

Son of Beat Hollow who defied greenness to make a winning debut at Southwell (good) in May. More on his plate under a penalty, but likely to improve.

Shantou half-brother to bumper winner Sweet Adare out of a sister to smart chasers William's Wishes and Beggar's Wishes. Top yard excels here, and he's sure to know his job starting out.

511-0OR:
10/1

From a family which has enjoyed plenty of success in these colours. Much better than the result when sixth of 12 to Samarquand in bumper at Wincanton, and has the physical scope to do well in the winter game.

411-0OR:
14/1

Coastal Path half-brother to useful chaser Up To Something and fairly useful chaser Nitrat out of an unraced sister to smart staying chaser Innox. Will stay further, but yard's runners tend to be well tuned up in bumpers.

By Kayf Tara out of a point winner from family of useful staying chaser Shotgun Paddy. Likely to need time and distance based on breeding.

7/1

By Mahler out of a mare who was placed in a point-to-point. Cost €24,000 last year, but others make more appeal on pedigree.

100/1

By Excelebration out of an unraced daughter of Cheveley Park Stakes winner Blue Duster. Dam's previous runner disappointed on sole start, however, and yard has a modest record in bumpers.

3/1

Vinnie Roe half-brother to useful hurdler Jessber's Dream, and cost €42,000 as a 3-y-o. Yard has a decent bumper record, so merits respect on racecourse bow.

Multiplex half-brother to modest staying chaser Dingo Bay out of a staying hurdler. Likely to need time and distance, and passed over on first start.

511-0OR:

Represents leading trainer/jockey combination, but this son of Mahler makes limited appeal on pedigree (dam unraced) , and cost just €16,500 at the sales. Hood fitted for debut.

411-0OR:
25/1

Shirocco gelding from family of Champion Hurdle third Bilboa who cost £46,000 as a 3-y-o. Quite well fancied on debut at Kempton in February, but ran poorly, and something to prove now.

511-0OR:
7/1

Son of Oscar from family of smart but ill-fated chaser Granit Jack. Won his sole start in point-to-points for John Nallen in Ireland, and joined current yard for £100,000 in April. Shortlisted given yard's good bumper record.

511-0OR:
200/1

Well beaten in a Thurles bumper in February for Martin Cullinane, and fared no better (pulling hard) for new yard at Southwell last month. No appeal.

411-0OR:
20/1

Finished second when making his debut in a 2m4f point-to-point in February, and sold for £100,000 subsequently. Pulled too hard when mid-field in a bumper at Warwick in April, and likely to leave that bare form behind.

50/1

By So You Think out of a moderate hurdler who has produced two previous foals to have raced. Neither of those showed much in bumpers, however, so unwise to expect fireworks from this gelding.

Betting

Forecast

Imperial Alcazar (3/1), Allart (7/2), Minella Bobo (7/1), Fifth Symphony (7/1), Drunken Pirate (10/1), Keep Rolling (14/1), Ector (14/1), Genius (16/1), Nearly Perfect (20/1), Edwardstone (25/1), Lord Walsingham (25/1), Tiger's Legacy (50/1), Get Up Them Steps (100/1), Jac Brown (100/1), Mountain So High (200/1)

Verdict

A chance is taken on the well-related DRUNKEN PIRATE, who showed lots of ability in a similar event at Wincanton in the spring, and will be much better for that experience. He's preferred to point-to-point winner Minella Bobo and the penalised Genius, with Allart appealing most of those without previous experience.
