Half-brother to six winners has run to a similar level on both outings. Second of three finishers last time and the easy winner has been well-beaten since. Has experience but vulnerable to a newcomer of average ability.

Court Cave gelding with bumper winners in his pedigree. His full-brother, Court Royale, finished second to Vinndication on his bumper debut here. One to note in the market.

By Intikhab out of a French 1m4f winning sister to 1m4f Flat/2m3f-2m6f hurdle/chase winner Questimato. Only beat one home on Doncaster debut and the stable's record in bumpers is just 6-67.

6/4

Shantou gelding with winners in the pedigree although his full-brothers have failed to win under rules. Trainer having a good year in bumpers so one to note in the market.

2/1

Sister to French Grade 3 winner Polygona; half-sister to Nick Williams useful performer Saint Lino. Rider may have to put up some overweight but she makes plenty of appeal on pedigree for a yard with an 8-22 record in bumpers here

Betting

Forecast

Shantou Express (6/4), Floressa (2/1), Weapons Out (9/2), Shanroe (8/1), Court Dancer (14/1), Chestnut Pete (33/1), Egypt Mill Duke (33/1), Benson (40/1)

Verdict

Nicky Henderson and Kim Bailey are having an excellent year with their bumper runners and both have strong chances here. The master of Seven Barrows relies on FLORESSA who makes a lot of appeal on her pedigree and in receipt of the fillies allowance. Shantou Express is related to horses who have been effective from 5f up to 3m6f. He is one to note in the market as his stable are having a good week. Court Dancer is another who could merit support, but Weapons Out has run to a similar modest level on both starts and he will have to do a lot better here.
