Soundly beaten on both previous starts in bumpers and yard's horses not running well enough presently to earn consideration.
Shantou gelding that cost €26,000 as a three-year-old. Related to a couple of useful winners and dam won her bumper. Clear of the third when beaten by a smart prospect on debut and yard had a winner with only previous bumper winner here.
Related to a winner and stepped up from a modest debut wen mid-division last time. Off six months and others have stronger claims.
Multiplex gelding out of a dam who is a half-sister to Son Of Flicka. Yard have a modest strike rate in bumpers and their horses have been improving for a run.
By top-class miler Soviet Star out of a stoutly bred dam. Runner-up in a slowly run newcomer's event and could provide trainer with a first ever bumper winner if the pace is more honest.
Resplendent Glory mare, represents trainer that does well in this sphere. Poor on two starts in Ireland and needs vast improvement to be competitive.
Runner-up in a Ballingarry point-to-point in June before joining this yard for £9,000. Stable had a winner with their only bumper runner in past five seasons.
Half-sister to bumper, hurdles and chase winner Tara Road. Has failed to see out the trip on two prior bumper starts and hard to fancy.
