Newcomer by Jeremy cost €32,000 as a half-brother to bumper winner Billy's Angel. Market can guide as to expectations.
Shown little in three starts to date and only beaten one rival in the three combined so makes no appeal.
Son of Beat Hollow brother to 7f/1m2f Flat and 2m hurdle winner Crushed from a dam who placed over hurdles. Looks best watched here.
Getaway gelding out of a Shernazar mare represents yard always respected in bumpers but having been only 12th of 16 on debut he may be a longer term prospect.
€165,000 son of Saddler Maker ran a cracker to be third in the valuable 22-runner bumper at Fairyhouse's Easter meeting last April. That form stands out here and he will be hard to beat.
Newcomer by Scorpion cost €2500 as a half-brother to point/2m2f and 2m4f hurdle winner Fly Camp & point winner Cloudybackwest. Best watched here.
Son of Shirocco a half-brother to point winner Little Miss Darsi. Jockey booking a positive so interesting if market move follows suit.
Bellamy Road gelding weakened into sixth of nine in lone race for Jessica Harrington last January. Should fare better now and tongue-tie may help him see out the race better.
Stoutly bred son of Dylan Thomas was far from disgraced when sixth of 16 at Listowel last month and he may give the likely favourite most to think about under Patrick Mullins.
