Won a second bumper at Killarney over a similar trip last month beating Celine Soprano ½L. Yard going well this week and likely to run well once again.
By Kalanisi out of an Aboo Hom mare. Won on debut when landing the spoils in a Down Royal bumper at odds of 25/1 in the five runner contest. More needed but not ruled out.
Winner of a Wexford bumper in May by 13L but has appeared to 'bump' into a couple in competitive events since. Finished ½L behind Bentham at Killarney last month. More progress possible.
Mr Dinos gelding from an unraced dam, failed to complete in string of maiden point-to-points before tailing off on debut in a Kilbeggan bumper when last seen in June.
Placed twice in maiden point-to-point contests earlier this year; first-time headgear applied but still very difficult to make a case for unless the market speaks in his favour.
Slickly Royal gelding. Dam unraced. Clipped heels and unseated rider on debut over C&D on Tuesday. Unlikely to play a significant part in the finish.
Gelding by Arctic Cosmos out of a Black Sam Bellamy mare. €14,000 as a three-year-old. Will possibly need the run on debut but worth a market check as post time approaches.
Not disgraced in four career bumper starts to date without ever challenging the main protagonists. Unlikely to play a part in the finish here.
Daughter of Great Pretender out of a Fly To The Stars mare. Inexpensive filly cost €4,5000 as a three-year-old. Co Cork yard not renowned for bumper winners.
