From family of very smart 2m chaser Tanks For That. Fell at the last when in front in an Irish point-to-point on debut in May. Appeals on paper, and worth a market check.
Son of Kayf Tara who shaped well despite losing a shoe when 1½L second of 15 to Drunken Pirate in bumper at Newbury last month. Will stay further, but much respected on basis of that effort.
€110,000 3-y-o by Fame And Glory from family of smart hurdler Emotional Moment. Yard has a decent record in similar events, and one of the likelier newcomers.
By Oscar out of an unraced sister to useful chaser Sizing Africa. Yard operates at a 26% strike rate in bumpers, so no surprise to see this €52,000 purchase go well.
Failed to cut much ice in the pointing field, and makes limited appeal switched to bumpers with a hood fitted.
By Yeats from an excellent staying family, and cost €45,000 last year. Yard's newcomers tend to know their job in bumpers, so needs a market check.
Son of Mahler who was behind Edwardstone at Newbury on debut, but would have finished much closer if settling, and ought to progress as he learns to relax.
Placed on both starts between the flags, but well beaten in a Chepstow bumper for new yard last month, and looks one for the longer term.
Delegator half-brother to fair hurdler Samoset out of a mare who won once from 30 starts on Flat and over jumps. Limited appeal.
£220,000 purchase earlier this year after finishing runner-up on debut in an Irish point-to-point. Yard's runners pay to follow in bumpers, so worthy of respect on Rules bow.
Quite a cheap purchase given powerful connections, but dam was a useful if headstrong winner for the yard, and market is sure to be informative.
From family trainer knows very well, and he showed plenty when ¾L third of 10 to Tokay Dokey in a bumper at Market Rasen on debut. More required here, but not a forlorn hope.
From the family of very smart 2m chaser Central House, but cost very little when going through the sales ring last year, and yard not known for success in this sphere.
Bred for stamina and on modest lines, and she was soundly beaten on bumper debut at Hereford.
