Weak in market and tailed off in similar event at Chepstow last month. Will need to show plenty of improvement in short space of time.
First foal, dam was lightly raced on the flat and stamina doesn't look copper bottomed for this assignment.
Off the mark at the second attempt in an Irish Point-to-point in June on good ground in June. Not easy to assess on debut in this sphere.
Third foal, half-brother to the smart Top Wood who won the Albert Bartlett Hurdle at the festival in the past. One of the likelier types on paper and market should be revealing.
The subject of some support when midfield on debut in heavy ground at Chepstow in April. Can do better but likely this is a stronger contest.
6L second of 13 in a Point-to-point in May and subsequently sold for £145,000. Has had a wind operation since and interesting to see what the market tells us about him.
Fifth foal and half-brother to three winners including two who won bumper's and all acted on soft ground. Makes appeal on paper and market should give a good guide.
£100,000 three-year-old. Sixth foal and half-brother to three winners, the best of whom was Sizing Gold. Yard have good record in such events and certainly one for the short list.
Tailed off in similar event here on soft ground in February and hard to fancy on the evidence of that run.
Runner up on debut in January but that was a very weak affair and tailed off on only run since.
First foal, dam stayed very well so probably one for further and with more experience behind her.
Second foal, dam unraced. Stable do well in such races and have already won two this week. Another for whom the market should prove revealing.
Half-sister to Grade 3 hurdle winner Shinrock Paddy and a Bumper winner. Interesting to see how she compares with stable companion Caspers Court in the betting.
Changed hands for £15,000 after landing an Irish Point-to-point on third attempt in June. Lots of stamina in the family so likely to find this an inadequate test.
