€11,000 yearling; started 80/1 on debut at Sedgefield (2m1f) 16-days ago when finishing a tailed-off fifth of six to Onthefrontfoot; on that basis makes no appeal whatsoever.
Yeats gelding; cost €42,000 as a 3yo; dam was a sister to the bumper/2m2f and 2m4f hurdle winner Rock On The Moor; ran perfectly respectably on debut at Exeter (2m1f, good to soft) when finishing 5¾L fifth of 11 to Young Lieutenant.
Eighth foal; brother to the useful chasers Hammersly Lake (1m7f-2m5f) and Kapsize (2m1f); trainer has a 9% strike-rate in bumpers (12-134) over the past five seasons.
Cost 55,000gns as a juvenile; has shown promise in both starts in bumpers, although wasn't in the same parish (beaten 16L) as the exciting Get In The Queue at Exeter (2m1f, good to soft) last month; the form choice.
€16,500 foal, €35,000 3yo; tenth foal; closely related to the 2m hurdle winners Juan De Gracia and My Viking Bay; the market should reveal his prospects on racecourse debut.
Sister to the 2m hurdle winner Pink Legend; has previous experience of this track and is evidently still a work in progress. However, must improve upon her recent 19L second to Miss Heritage (2m soft, Catterick).
