Impressive 8L winner of an AW bumper at Lingfield (2m) in December. Represents a top yard and is one for the shortlist with a promising conditional jockey up dropping in distance on turf debut.
Successful by a head in a bumper over an extended 1m5f at Huntingdon (good-to-soft) in January. Had a previous winner back in third that day and is an interesting runner in this contest.
Placed in a couple of bumpers in the autumn and finished a fair fourth in a 2m bumper at Ludlow (good-to-soft) last month. Promising conditional booked to ride.
Finished a well beaten ninth of 12 in a bumper over an extended 1m7f at Wincanton (good-to-soft) on debut last month. Others make more appeal.
Unraced son of Norse Dancer cost connections £40,000 at the sales in May last year. Dam won a bumper on debut and he is worth a check in the market with a hood worn on first racecourse appearance.
Unraced Flemensfirth gelding out of a Listed winning jumps mare. Purchased for €85,000 in June last year and market support would be notable on debut.
Fair second in a soft ground C&D bumper in February. Form of that contest nothing special and likely needs to improve if he is to take this race.
Beaten 22L when finishing seventh of nine in a good ground C&D bumper a fortnight ago. .Others hold stronger claims on this occasion.
Beaten 6L when third in a soft ground C&D bumper in February. Held by Mount Windsor on that form and finished well held at Taunton subsequently.
Unraced daughter of Helmet and a half-sister to the yards multiple winner At First Light among others. Probably best watched on debut however.
Decent 3L second in a 2m4f point-to-point on good-to-yielding ground at Ballinaboola on debut in February. Bought for £30,000 subsequently and interesting to see how she fares on stable debut.
