20:00 Ballinrobe Fri 12 April 2019
Gelding by Rainwatch out of a Exit To Nowhere mare. Dam tailed off in a bumper, out of bumper 2m3f - 3m hurdle winning sister to 2m - 2m6f hurdle winner Flagship Colm. Best watched on debut.
Gelding by Jeremy out of a Cardoun mare. Cost €39,000 as a three-year-old. Encouraging fifth of 10 beaten 17L on debut under jockey Jamie Codd in a Navan bumper last month. Experience may count for a great deal.
Shaping with plenty of promise in point-to-points and noteworthy that connections went to £105,000 at November sales at Cheltenham. Will attempt to put a string of seconds behind him here for leading trainer/jockey combination.
Stowaway gedling out of a Peacock I mare. Showed little in one start in a point-to-point and likely to find quite a few too good for him on second bumper start following a 10½L defeat at Limerick last month.
Poor form in a couple of point-to-point starts towards the fall of the year and finished 25L behind Andy Dufresne on debut in a Down Royal bumper before another heavy defeat at Naas in February beaten 41L finishing 13th of 23.
Fell when making his debut in a point-to-point on yielding ground in December. Probably best watched on his first start under Rules on stable debut.
Gelding by Thewayyouare out of a Ashkalani mare. Not seen since making sole appearance tailed of 49L in a Fairyhouse bumper over three years ago. Easy to look elsewhere.
€3,400 son of Echo Of Light and half-brother to a minor hurdle winner. Well-beaten in two bumpers and a a couple of maiden hurdles to date. Hard to place any faith in.
Never really progressed from third on debut at Ballinrobe in four subsequent starts. Well below par form looks set to continue in this contest.
Unraced gelding by Morozov out of a mare who pulled up on her sole point-to-point start. Others hold stronger claims on debut.
Arakan gelding out of a Bob's Return mare. Beaten 38L when last seen in a 3m point-to-point in October 2017. Hard to make a case for the seven-year-old here.
Son of Sunday Break cost connections €18,000 at the sales two years ago. Running well in defeat in a number of bumper starts last spring. Could be a big player on return to action.
By Doyen out of a Flying Legend mare. Dam unraced half-sister to bumper winner Concience. Likely to be best followed a little further down her career line.
By Gold Well out of a Presenting mare. €12,000 as a three-year-old (Vendor). Dam placed in a bumper, sister to 2m3f - 2m7f chase winner Runswick Days. Failed to finish either of her two point-to-point starts but worth a market check on debut.
Daughter of Soldier Of Fortune out of a Kahyasi mare. Half-sister to winners Flying Tiger, Mega Fortune and Icario. Should be involved on the back of her last two starts but may be susceptible to a couple of quicker sorts.
First reserve: Pivotal gelding out of a Mr Greely mare. Pulled up when tailed off two out in a 3m point-to-point in December. Hard to place any faith in.
