100,000gns yearling. Sister to 1m4f AW winner. Dam unraced sister to a 1m4f Group 2 winner. Trainer has had two winners from just 14 runners in this sphere over five season. Market check advised.
Half-sister to stable's hurdle/chase winner Ramore Will. Dam never raced. Trainer 16% in this discipline. Could go well on debut.
Showed promise when fourth of 12 on debut at Newbury (1m4f, soft) last December. Found it tougher in Class 2 event at Cheltenham in April, but remains of interest.
Dam well held over hurdles and a half-sister to Irish National third Whatuthink. Stable 15% in bumpers and runners always merit respect.
50-1 on debut at Uttoxeter in March. Well held that day, and with trainer's strike rate just 2% in this sphere, she looks best watched on her reappearance.
€8,000 3yo. Dam unraced half-sister to high-class jumper Oscar Whisky. Trainer doesn't have vast numbers of bumper runners (6-39 over past five seasons), but those that do well have tended to be supported. Market check.
€4,000 3yo. Sister to bumper/useful jumps winner Father Edward. Dam a maiden. Trainer 8% in bumpers over past five seasons, and unless strongly supported on debut, she is probably best watched.
Largely a middle distance Flat pedigree and trainer's only bumper runner in last five seasons was unplaced, so best waiting for other days.
Half-sister to point and bumper winner Lily The Pink. Trainer 19% in bumpers and interesting that Aidan Coleman (rides at Worcester earlier in the afternoon) is making the trip for this mount. Can probably go well.
£3,000 3yo. Half-sister to three French winners (two over jumps). Dam a maiden from two starts, is half-sister to a French Grade 3 hurdle winner. Trainer 13% in bumpers over five season. Market check.
Half-sister to useful staying hurdler Timeforben. Changed hands after Irish point win in January (third start). Trainer more associated with Flat (runners in that code in good form) is 0-2 in bumpers over five seasons. Interesting newcomer.
Dam placed in Irish point, is a half-sister to Stayers' Hurdle winner Cole Harden. Cost just £900 last year, and stable has modest strike-rate in this sphere.
