Modest on debut in a bumper at Punchestown but showed no improvement when trounced by 38l at Downpatrick last time and was flattered by the finishing position.
Out of an unraced half-sister to the useful jumper Bounce Back and Latanier, a 140-rated chaser (at his best) who ran well at this course; yard not noted for first-time out winners. Best watched here unless significantly supported in the betting.
Represents last year's winning yard and comes here with a solid profile after making a winning start at Downpatrick earlier this month. The mare stayed on strongly over an extended 2m2f on that occasion and may have too much resolution for this lot
Well beaten in two point-to-point but ran well to finish second in a Worecester bumper in early July; lacked a change of gear near the finish but was still a clear second best that day. Possible he can have more of a say this time.
Modest effort on debut at Market Rasen needs to be bettered and will probably do better over a much longer trip when there are obstacles in the way.
Out of Lady Bluesky, who won a bumper and over 2m-2m1f over hurdles, as well as winning between 1m4f and 2m on the Flat; yard going well just now. One to bear in mind with an eye on the future.
Poor effort in both starts so far and a big improvement is required. A longer trip will also suit if she makes it through to a hurdling career.
