612-0OR:
20/1

Gelding by Getaway out of a Supreme Leader mare. No impression from two out on debut in a Limerick 2m bumper when last seen in December. Difficult to see him making any significant impact in first-time tongue tie.

Last RunWatch last race

33/1

Beneficial gelding out of a Roselier mare. Sports a hood on debut for yard that boast a 31% win and place strike rate with their bumper runners in the last two years. Worthy of consideration.

612-0OR:
9/2

Gelding by Robin Des Champs out of a Portrait Gallery mare. Cost €30,000 as a three-year-old and won on point-to-point debut in May 2017. Possible place claims on bumper introduction.

612-0OR:

Third of 10 beaten over 6L in a Wexford maiden hurdle looks to be a career best in between five dismal efforts in the last 14 months. Others preferred.

612-0OR:
12/1

Short of room before weakening to finish fourth of seven on debut in a Fairyhouse bumper in December. Place claims for yard with a 45% win and place strike rate at the track in early/mid February in the last three years.

511-13OR:

Mahler gelding out of a Presenting mare. Cost €50,000 as a three-year-old and is expected to improve on a promising debut in a Fairyhouse bumper last month when finishing third of nine ½L adrift of Castle Oliver.

511-13OR:
2/1

Mahler gelding out of a Westerner mare. Cost €10,000 as a yearling before fetching €32,000 as a three-year-old. Promising on return to action when finishing second of six at Fairyhouse last month. Likely to improve and worth considering.

511-13OR:

Milan gelding out of a Northern Crystal mare. Cost €92,000 as a three-year-old and is likely to be of interest for leading national hunt connections with interesting jockey engagement.

511-13OR:
7/1

Presenting gelding out of an Old Vic mare. Cost €125,000 as a three-year-old and rewarded each way interest when finishing third of nine on debut in a Limerick bumper when last seen in December. Not easily dismissed but more needed in this company.

511-13OR:
100/1

€2,500 gelding by Multiplex out of a Bustino mare. Well beaten on debut in a Down Royal bumper over Christmas finishing last of 14 beaten over 100L. Difficult to place any faith in.

511-6OR:

Daughter of Motivator out of a Fasliyev mare. Best watched on debut for yard not renowned for their bumper starters in the last couple of seasons.

511-6OR:

By Dansant out of a Definite Article mare. Not disgraced in the point-to-point ranks but is likely to be up against it here on bumper debut.

511-6OR:
10/1

Winner of an October point-to-point over 3m. Daughter of Robin Des Champs cost £48,000 at the Cheltenham November sales and any market move would be worth noting on debut for leading yard.

Betting

Forecast

Cats For Cash (2/1), Reasonable Doubt (9/2), Cavalry Master (5/1), Battle Of Midway (6/1), Dinny Lacey (7/1), Robin Des Sivola (10/1), Yendo (12/1), Fire Away (20/1), Elk Bridge (25/1), Teddy's Acre (33/1), Onawingandaprayer (33/1), Ujumpthelastuwin (100/1), Alarmist (100/1)

Verdict

Could be a battle of the experienced geldings as Battle Of Midway may not have enough to stop the potentially exciting CATS FOR CASH from the Gordon Elliott yard. The five-year-old has twice finished runner up in a couple of bumpers including going down by ¾L at Fairyhouse last month and can land the closing contest for connections getting off the mark at the third attempt. The Jessica Harrington-trained Robin Des Sivola is worthy of consideration while Cavalry Master and Yendo could be capable of hitting the frame.
