Fame And Glory gelding, justified 6-4 favouritism on debut at Ludlow in May. Off since, returns with trainer in thriving form and should go well despite penalty.
Geordieland gelding. Half-brother to useful hurdler/chaser Buckhorn Timothy and fair hurdler/chaser Buckhorn Tom. Yard amongst winners here on Friday and market confidence should be noted.
A £35,000 three-year-old, brother to fairly useful hurdler/chaser Centasia. Has to command close inspection representing Hobbs/Johnson team on first start.
Half-brother to eight winners with Mr Thriller and Gaspara amongst them. Runner-up in a big-field C&D bumper in April and likely to be in the mix again on return to action.
€52,000 three-year-old, Flemensfirth gelding. Brother to fairly useful hurdler/smart chaser Knockgraffon. Represnts champion trainer on debut, noted.
A £78,000 four-year-old, fifth foal, half-brother to fairly useful hurdler/useful chaser Huntsman Son. Second in sole Irish point-to-point and since joined top UK yard.
A €65,000 three-year-old, half-brother to useful bumper winner King Roland. Fell in second on sole Irish point-to-point in March and looks a useful recruit to the Pond House team.
Oscar gelding out of a Presenting mare, went close on second start in Irish point-to-points in February and has since joined this team. Market informative with trainer 4-24 in bumpers last 12 months.
A €50,000 three-year-old, dam, bumper winner, half-sister to temperamental but very smart hurdler/smart chaser Fair Along. Tizzard team amongst winners here yesterday and runs two in this with betting informative.
Motivator gelding, brother to two winners, and half-brother to seven more, sports a hood on debut. Trainer in form and boasts 47% strike-rate in bumpers (8-17) previous 12 months. Noted newcomer.
Twice placed from three runs in Irish point-to-points before joining this yard, trainer runs two here and market an essential guide to their hopes.
Malinas gelding, related to multiple winners and finished second on debut at Uttoxeter in March in five-runner affair as a 25-1 chance. Form has taken some knocks since. More called for.
