Fourth foal; half-sister to the 2m3f hurdle winner Highland Life; well beaten on debut at Hereford (finished 13th of 15) last week.
Runner-up at Taunton on her second start in April 2017 (2m, good to firm). However, she comes into this race off a lengthy absence (since New Years Eve) with others seemingly much less exposed.
Tobougg mare; started 25/1 on debut at Ffos Las (2m, good) in May when finishing 4L sixth of 11 to Grey Diamond; improvement possible (but needed).
Fifth foal; sister to hurdle winners Pembridge (2m6f) and River Arrow (2m4f); has had wind surgery prior to her intended racecourse debut.
£8,000 3yo; third foal; half-sister to the 2m-2m3f hurdle winner Chateauneuf Du Pap; market helpful in assessing her chances.
€10,000 3yo; seventh foal; half-sister the the PTP winner Miss Brownstown; dam was a half-sister to Cooldine; trainer also saddles Early Morning Rain.
First foal from an unraced dam who was a half-sister to the useful 2m chase/2m1f hurdle winner Mick Thonic; tongue-tied on debut.
Caught close home on rules debut in a Cork bumper (2m, heavy) in April; the winner of that race is now a 114-rated hurdler (for Gordon Elliott); has since joined Oliver Greenall for £30,000 in May.
Half-sister to the bumper/2m-2m3f hurdle winner Air Horse One, as well as the bumper/2m4f hurdle winner One For Rosie; green on debut at Aintree (2m1f) last month when finishing just under 2L second to Sojourn; stablemate of Pogo I Am.
Fourth live foal out of a 1m2f Flat placed dam (Julatten); produced a pleasing opening effort when beaten a head by Emma's Joy (Dan Skelton) at Southwell (2m, good) 15 days ago.
First foal from an unraced dam who was a half-sister to the 2m-3m hurdle winner Abbey Lane; started 66/1 when finishing a distant last of eleven on debut at Bangor.
Second foal out of the 2m winning hurdler Orbital Orchid; sister to the 2m Flat winner Sir Pass I Am; trainer would appear to hold a stronger hand with stablemate Misty Whisky.
€15,000 yearling; half-sister to three winners including Balder Succes (2m-2m5f); fairly low-key on debut at Warwick (ninth of 13) but could benefit for that run and carries the Ludlow Racing Partnership silks; stablemate of Teme Spirit.
£28,000 3yo; half-brother to the smart 2m-2m4f hurdle/chase winner Different Gravey; unable to build upon the promise shown on debut at Bangor (40/1) in May when sent off 3/1f in a stronger race at Aintree latest; stablemate of Saga Succes.
