Andorn filly, half-sister to five winners including a hurdle winner and dam a 1m4f AW winner. Yard have had a couple of bumper winners at this course from 15 runners and they generally do okay in this sphere. Wears first-time hood.
Shantou filly, dam a multiple chase/hurdles winner. Pedigree suggests she will be seen to best effect over further but she was impressive when runner-up over C&D on debut and shouldn't be ruled out here.
Midnight Legend filly, half-sister to 2m4f hurdle winner. Dam placed over hurdles and was a half-sister to two winners. Yard absolutely flying at present, running at a strike-rate exceeding 40%. May need a little further but has to be of interest.
Passing Glance filly, half-sister to three bumper winners. Dam a sister to a useful stayer over hurdles and a bumper winner. Interesting filly on paper and likely to go well if the market speaks in her favour.
Mahler filly, half-sister to a useful stayer on the Flat and a point-to-point winner. Dam a long standing maiden. Jockey booking is positive but yard don't tend to have many winners in bumpers.
Sixties Icon filly, cost £5,500 in August. Dam a bumper winner and half-sister to two winners over fences. Sire has a good strike-rate on a sound surface and not one to rule with the yard in form.
Enrique filly, half-sister to seven winners including high-class Whisper and a French Listed winner. Dam a sister to a useful French chaser. Yard have a near 17% strike-rate in bumpers and plenty to like about this one on paper.
