By Black Sam Bellamy out of a 2¾m-3¼m hurdle/chase winner. Looked above average when a promising second on debut at Southwell, and sets the bar on that effort.
Yard's record in bumpers not what it once was, but this gelding was placed in a point-to-point in November, and needs a market check with a tongue tie fitted for Rules debut.
€30,000 3-y-o by Shirocco out of a bumper winner. Yard has a 20% strike-rate in bumpers, and this gelding ticks the right boxes, so is shortlisted.
Full-brother to winning jumpers Lake Malawi and Spare Brakes. Quite a cheap purchase given his breeding, but yard 5-13 with its runners this month, and that alone entitles him to a second look.
Son of Yeats who is related to winners, but cost just £800 last year, and yard just 1-20 in bumpers in the last five years.
Bred to appreciate a speed test, but was left behind when the sprint began in a bumper won by Mergeela at Wincanton on debut, and makes limited appeal now.
Doyen half-sister to a point winner out of a half-sister to stable's smart chaser See You Sometime. May need time, but worth a market check on debut.
