Tailed off in Newbury bumper on debut in January and again wide-margin defeat next time in Lingfield AW bumper in February. Best watched on return.
Robin Des Champs gelding was bought for €80,000 following success in an Irish point-to-point in April and is in excellent hands starting in this sphere.
Brother to the useful Ardlethen, won his only Irish point-to-point and changed hands thereafter for decent money; could go well on first start for Tom George.
By Milan out of a half-sister to pair of useful bumper winners and worth a close look debuting for the Jonjo O'Neill yard.
Dam a half-sister to St Leger winner Bollin Eric; cost €70,000 as a three-year-old and is in good hands for his first taste of the racecourse. Noted newcomer.
Milan gelding, out a half-sister to smart hurdles performer Muirhead; yet another from a stable with pleasing bumper figures making his first start.
Shantou gelding related to multiple bumper winners, should be ready to roll on first outing and represents the champion trainer.
Half-sister to Castlegrace Paddy, a smart sort over fences, she was second in one Irish point-to-point before changing hands for £70,000.
Goes up in distance after showing some promise on debut over 1m5½f in a bumper here last month, likely going to need improvement given the newcomers in this field.
Down the field in a Huntingdon bumper on debut in March and off since; sizeable forwards step will be required to have a leading say in this.
