Black Sam Bellamy gelding is a half-brother to a bumper winner in Harrisons Promise out of a chase winner from a good family. Yard not prolific in such contests but champion jockey booking demands a market check.
Flemensfirth gelding cost €64,000 as a three-year-old as a son of an unraced half-sister to Champion Bumper winner Total Enjoyment. Trainer's only runner here and jockey waits long time for second ride so expect he's useful.
Irish trained son of Westerner cost €30,000 as a three-year-old as a half-brother to a bumper and 2m1f flat winner. Stable has a 25 per-cent strike rate in UK bumpers so respected here and market support would be very notable.
€38,000 son of Getaway is a half-brother to two winners including bumper and hurdles scorer You Cant Catch Me. Yard not as prolific as some in bumpers so best watched barring market support.
€92,000 newcomer by Fame And Glory is a half-brother to three winners including bumper, hurdle and chase scorer Lastbutnotleast, May want further but trainer capable in bumpers so another worth watching in the market.
Son of Muliplex is a half-brother to two hurdle scorers from 2m5f-3m2f. Trainer had a bumper winner last week so merits respect but suspicion is that he will need further.
Flemensfirth gelding cost €54,000 last year at auction as the second foal out of an unraced dam from the family of several good hurdlers. Capable yard also run Farrants Way here and the pair should be compared in the market.
€42,000 son of top sire Oscar is a brother to 2m4f/2m6f hurdle winner Atomic Rumble. Trainer capable in bumpers so market should be watched although the likelihood is that he will excel over further.
Fair Mix filly is a half-sister to bumper winner Belle Amis out of smart bumper and hurdles winner and Supreme Novices Hurdle third Amaretto Rose. Attractive pedigree for in form yard with good record in bumpers so leading player.
