Oscar gelding who won a Kilfeacle point-to-point in a slow time. May need more of a test than this but the jockey booking is a positive at least.
Made odds-on for sole point-to-point start when no match for the easy winner. In good hands but jockey bookings suggest Minella Melody is yard's main hope.
Beat Hollow gelding with plenty of bumper winners in the pedigree. Second of four finishers on sole point-to-point start but still worth checking in the market.
Held by Sole Cargo on point-to-point form and has shown little to date to suggest he will be a threat in this company.
Related to J'y Vole and five other winners. Impressive winner at Rathcannon before unseating on his only point-to-point start since. Has joined a top yard but one surprisingly lacking much of a recent record in bumpers.
Won his last point-to-point but the form does not match that of others in this and he was tailed off in his previous bumper.
Winner of a mares maiden at Kildorrery last month but surprising if that effort was good enough to beat a few of these.
Half-sister to five winners including Mister Hyde, Glenquest, Realta Mo Chroi and Cool Quest. Stable have won two of the last three renewals with recent point-to-point winners so the omens are good for this impressive Dungarvan winner.
Flemensfirth mare with bumper winners throughout her pedigree. Romped home by 10L on sole point-to-point outing and the third, Elk Bridge, has won a Clonmel bumper since.
Just behind recent Clonmel bumper winner Elk Bridge at Boulta but a line through that rival gives her something to find with Minella Melody. Has since joined a top yard and the jockey booking signals intent.
Oscar half-sister to five-time winner The Mooch.Lacks the quality of point-to-point form of many of her rivals and yard have a modest 6% strike rate in bumpers since 2014.
