Placed in two bumpers last season but disappointed since and jumped poorly when ninth of 11 on hurdles bow at Gowran Park last month; more demanded back in this sphere.

€22,000 Mahler gelding. Dam, maiden pointer, out of fairly useful hurdler/useful chaser Woodville Star (stayed 3m). Represents excellent yard and market prominence would have to be noted.

€5,000 three-year-old Jeremy gelding, doesn't make significant appeal on paper ahead of first start.

Scorpion gelding, better effort on second start in heavy-ground Roscommon bumper in September; respected connections and should improve before long.

Fame And Glory half-brother to fair 2½m hurdle winner Kilbrew Boy, fourth of 11 on debut in Fairyhouse bumper and should soon be capable of bettering that. Second runner for Gordon Elliott.

Promising second on debut at Naas in February (66/1) before weakening rapidly from the front at Punchestown 11 days later (7-4f). Off since and hard to know version to trust.

Forecast

Wingin A Prayer (5/2), Ballyhot Boy (10/3), Farsideofthemoon (5/1), Pistol Smoke (8/1), Feelgood Island (10/1), Casamari Abbey (12/1), Part Time Affair (12/1), No Grey Area's (14/1), Rosgalme (20/1), Beeverstown Bullet (25/1), Tempting Tara (25/1), Thedancingman (40/1), Bentanya (50/1), Serpolette (100/1), Eat The Book (100/1)

Verdict

No Grey Area's run on debut at Naas in February belied his place in the market but, just 11 days later, he was sent off favourite and ran more like a 66-1 chance. It could well prove worth giving him another chance to prove himself. PART TIME AFFAIR was third at Roscommon in September and didn't really seem to get going as well as expected on testing ground, having been ridden patiently. That was still an improved run and with more to come he's got to have claims. Wingin A Prayer joins the Noel Meade pair of Rosgalme and Ballyhot Boy as newcomers worth paying attention.
