1m4f French AW AQPS winner in July 2018; finished 25L third to the unbeaten Get In The Queue (runner-up has also won since) on debut for Paul Nicholls at Exeter (2m1f, good to soft) in February; stablemate of Mister Timmytucks.
6L winner on debut at Southwell (good) in October for the James Bethell/John Dance combination; sold for £110,000 the following month and debuts under a penalty for Kim Bailey with the promise of plenty more to come.
Made it third-time lucky when keeping on well to run down the short priced favourite First Lord Du Cuet (pair well clear) in a 2m Taunton bumper (good) latest; form franked by that rival with his 13L romp at Plumpton since.
Cost €32,000 as a yearling; started 15/2 on debut at Kempton (2m, good to soft) last month when finishing 14¼L fifth to the rules debutante Shiskin; more required; stablemate of Raven Court.
Kayf Tara gelding; brother to the sidelined, but talented novice chaser Master Tommytucker; started 2/1f on debut at Exeter on New Years Day finishing a weakening 21L sixth to New Age Dawning; stablemate of Eritage.
Cost €54,000 as a 3yo; ran reasonably well on debut at Warwick on New Years Eve when beaten 8L by a stablemate of Perfect Predator (Nobby - a Listed second since); unfortunately didn't progress on his next start at Ffos Las.
Bought for £32,000 in May 2018 as a short-head winner of a 2m4f Littlewindsor maiden (good); has hindered his chances in bumpers by racing keenly; likely to fare better once (re)introduced to obstacles.
Cost €80,000 as a 3yo; posted a solid debut when finishing a close third to Sojourn and the subsequent Listed scorer Misty Whisky on debut at Aintree (2m1f, good) in November; not so effective over this C&D (7/2) since; stablemate of Et Apres Thou.
€14,000 purchase by Gold Well; bred to be a chaser; always in rear on debut at Fontwell (2m2f, good to soft) 49-days ago; stablemate of Tara Niece; very unlikely to be competitive..
First foal from a 2m-3m hurdle/chase winner (Frosted Grape); trainer 1-26 (4%) with his bumper runners over the past five years; stiff task on debut.
Cost €38,000 as a 3yo; sixth foal; half-brother to the bumper/2m hurdle winner Definitelyanoscar and the 2m-2m7f hurdle winner Towering; market helpful in assessing his chance in a very competitive looking bumper.
Cost €3,000 as a 3yo; third foal from a 2m1f-2m5f French winning chaser (Medine); half-brother to the 2m2f French chase winner Easyrun; can be expected to come on for this initial racecourse experience.
Cost a mere £600 as a juvenile; fifth foal with a predominately Flat-based pedigree (dam was a hurdles scorer); others rate as plenty more appealing.
From an essentially modest dam (Kate Hill Dancer); sent off at odds of 25/1 on debut at Exeter in February when finishing a well beaten sixth to the unbeaten Get In The Queue - today's rival Eritage finished three places and 4½L ahead in third.
Kayf Tara mare; half-sister to the bumper/2m5f hurdle winner Jubilympics; finished sixth of nine to Early Morning Rain on debut at Plumpton (2m2f, good) in February; stablemate of Silver Nickel.
