17:30 Newton Abbot Wed 15 May 2019
Very little ability in two starts and looked particularly awkward last time. First time hood needs to have positive effect.
Showed ability when staying on from unpromising position to finish sixth on Chepstow debut last month. That form yet to be tested, but more to come and now tried in tongue tie.
Cut little ice in pair of pair of Point-to-points last winter but has joined a yard who are in good form and have a good record in these events so worth noting in market.
Has now performed to similar level of ability in three similar events on good ground and does seem to set the standard of those with racecourse experience.
Beaten a mile at 150/1 on debut in Bumper last month and impossible to fancy on the evidence of that.
Hopelessly tailed off in six runner Bumper on soft in December. Wind operation since but can only be watched unless betting suggests otherwise.
€67,000 purchase last summer. Second foal of an unraced dam who was half-sister to 2m winner The Jigsaw Man. One to note in market.
7L third in Point-to-point debut last month. Yard can get the occasional winner in this sphere so not without hope.
€22,000 buy last year. Half-brother to winning hurdler Love The Leader. Yard are 3-20 in the last five years in bumpers so worth noting in market.
First foal. Dam was a 2m winner over hurdles and she was a half-sister to decent chaser Earth Magic. Trainer does well in this sphere.
Second foal of a dam who was of little account but stable have the occasional winner in this division so worth noting if there is any support.
Racecourse debut. First foal of a dam who never made it to the track. Small yard not associated with winners in this sphere.
Cost just £600 last summer. First foal of a dam who ran once in a Bumper. Easy to pass over unless market tells us otherwise.
Stable companion of Clonmonarch so interesting to see how they compare in betting. Second foal of a dam who was unraced.
