Newcomer by Red Jazz best watched here for small stable with many of the big guns running more likely sorts.
Finished eighth of 19 in Goffs Land Rover Bumper at Punchestown Festival on debut in spring and although a shade disappointing given 4/5 odds he ran well enough next when fourth of 12 at Ballinrobe. Can progress again and go close.
Stowaway gelding a close second when falling at the last in lone point-to-point after which he was bought by connections for £140,000. Represents one of most prolific yards in Irish racing history in bumpers so highly respected here.
Thrice raced son of Beat Hollow followed two fourths with a third when last seen at Killarney in August. Vulnerable to less exposed sorts but looks sure to make the frame at least.
By Loup Breton out of a Turgeon mare. €18,000 as a two-year-old. Half-brother to Guadeloupe 8.5f - 1m2f Flat winner Shiny Angel. Best watched on debut.
Newcomer by rising star NH sire Fame And Glory represents yard with 3-11 record in bumpers so certainly one of the more likely debutants and he has a half-brother and dam with bumper wins as further positives here.
Gelding by Arctic Cosmos only beat one home on debut at Listowel last month in a similar event and on that basis remains on the watch list.
Newcomer by Yeats out of a maiden point-to-pointer is probably best watcher here barring significant market support for yard who do have occasional bumper winners.
Nicely bred son of Dylan Thomas from the connections of Presenting Percy but yard 2-43 in bumpers over the last five seasons. That said the booking of Patrick Mullins catches the eye.
Stoutly bred son of Califet so his second on debut at Sligo over 2m2f was a very pleasing start. Drop back in trip not a positive but has the best form on offer and more to come here for leading yard.
Newcomer by Recital out of a King's Theatre mare cost €9,500 as a Flat bred yearling. Best watched here barring market support.
Some minor late headway into 10th of the 18 runners at Punchestown in June on debut. Better for the experience here he has possibilities of making the frame at a price.
Unplaced but shown modicum of ability in two bumpers and two point-to-points to date. Probably more a long term prospect but fourth at Killarney gives him a place shout.
Daughter of Mahler was running on again when second at Ballinrobe on debut after dropping back to third at one point. That effort promising and she should have more to come so rates a genuine contender.
Daughter of September Storm out of a Flemensfirth mare. Half-sister to The Wise One winner over hurdles at 3m. Looks a future prospect.
