Has a Flat pedigree being by Medaglio D'Oro out of a dam who was placed over a mile and who is a half-sister to a Grade 1 winner in America. Never involved when eighth of 10 at Worcester in August but AW surface should suit on pedigree.
Runner-up on point-to-point debut in February and showed ability amidst greenness in Uttoxeter bumper last month when keeping on for fifth. That form gives him a bit to find but with expected improvement he has place claims.
Yard often have well-bred and well-backed runners in similar races, but this son of Watar makes limited appeal on paper having cost just €5,000 as a three-year-old. Market can guide as to expectations.
Newcomer by Doyen cost £42,000 at auction last year as a three-parts brother to a 2m-2m1f bumper and hurdles scorer. Trainer at 26 per-cent in bumpers this season so looks a likely sort to be involved on debut.
Son of Enrique bought for €40,000 made a brief showing before fading into 11th of 18 at Warwick back in April. Big improvement needed but represents a yard with few peers in such races so fully expecting big improvement.
Some improvement latest after being beaten 21L on debut (ninth of 11) as he managed a third of four at Wincanton where beaten 13L. That form among the best on offer but surprise if one or two don't still prove more forward.
Newcomer by Sixties Icon is a half-brother to four flat winners from 1m-1m4f, a couple of them on AW surfaces. On breeding he may be a bit sharper than some but surprise it's taken until now to see him on the track.
Won Irish maiden point-to-point on debut in May and joins respected yard with a good record in bumpers here so should be capable of a good showing on debut. Market may be useful.
Completely tailed off in two bumper at Chepstow and Hereford with the latest seeing him beaten by best part of a furlong. Impossible to fancy now.
Newcomer by Malinas is a half-sister to two hurdles winners from 2m-2m4f. Small yard only have a handful of bumper runners so on the balance the best option looks a watching brief.
