Kalanisi gelding; 33/1 when finishing 12¾L third of seven to Golazo (Willie Mullins) at Ballinrobe (2m1f+, good) last month; this race appears to be an easier option.
Second foal from a useful 2m hurdle winner (Clear Riposte); half-brother to the maiden PTP winner Clear Symbol; top jockey booked to ride.
Clearly has a mind of his own, and is impossible to consider as a realistic winner judged upon his unsavoury antics on the track to date; hood applied in order to aid his game regular rider Henry Brooke.
From a modest 2m4f hurdle winner; very keen on debut at Southwell (1m7½f), and paid the price for that eagerness come the business end of the race; very, very unlikely winner; stablemate of Sweet Flora.
Cockney Rebel gelding; €20,000 yearling; second foal; half-brother to the 2m1f hurdle winner Guanabara; yard have saddled a couple of bumper winners of late; merits consideration, so monitor the market.
€19,000 yearling, €34,000 3yo; sixth foal; half-brother to the versatile French winner Antioches; connections are rare visitors to rural Northumberland and saddled a smooth debut bumper winner at Market Rasen on Friday; obvious candidate.
By Faugheen's sire Germany, but dam (foaled 2000) was unraced; 50/1 when finishing a distant last of seven on debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, good).
First foal from a 2m3f-2m6f hurdles placed dam (Blazing Bay); denied the opportunity to make her debut at Uttoxeter last week owing to an abandonment; conditions will be riding plenty quicker here.
Milan mare; 13th foal from a German 6f-1m Listed winning dam (who was a half-sister to Commanche Court); half-sister to four winners including the winning hurdler Credo Star (2m-2m4f); isn't without a chance.
Arcadio mare; cost €2,000 as a 3yo; always in rear (detached) on debut at Kelso (2m, good) last month; like her stablemate Canneyhill Bob, she shouldn't be troubling the judge.
