Trainer has a 28% strike-rate with bumper runners; this one looks one of the lesser stable lights, only fifth on debut at Sligo (2m2f, good/soft). Won't be a surprise if he takes a step forward from his debut though, has to be respected.
Left his debut form well behind when wearing a first-time tongue-tie he was runner-up over C&D in July (left behind by the winner late on). Conditions were very testing on that occasion, will find conditions quicker underfoot this time around.
Just the one modest/poor run to his name having offered little on his debut at Roscommon early last month on soft ground. Finished midfield; merely passed beaten horses, would need to show more here to get involved.
1-10 in point-to-points finally getting off the mark in that sphere on his tenth start (won a weak contest by 15L). Looked as though he needed the run when finishing fourth on his bumper debut at Downpatrick (went in snatches); needs a test.
Hooded for his second putting after showing very little over C&D in April on debut. One of two runners for this yard who have a modest record in bumpers, others present a more compelling case.
Showed a little more on his second Irish point-to-point start but still finished last of four to complete (was 5-4 favourite). Looks to be the better of the two runners from this yard but they are only 7-99 in bumpers last five seasons.
Minor promise in Irish point-to-points (2P45) before being sold for £12,000 to a mainly Flat yard (0-3 in bumpers last five years). Went with little encouragement in his C&D debut last month, finished well beaten by 32.5L in tough conditions.
Newcomer; half-brother to four winners, including useful hurdler Gorgeous Sixty; dam ran once on the Flat. Yard always to be respected with their runners in GB (12-76 last five seasons), good record at this venue, jockey booking eye-catching.
