€13,000 2yo, out of a maiden who was best over middle distances, and is a half-sister to middle distance Group 3 winner Goncharova. Stable's first bumper runner of the season, and probably best watched.
Out of a French 2m2f-2m6f chase winner. Stamina and also AQPS Flat race success in the family. Stable 2-22 in bumpers over past five seasons. One to check out in the market.
€8,500 yearling. Dam an unraced half-sister to 1m4f-2m winner Dubawi Fifty. Stamina-laden pedigree and represents a trainer who is yet to have a bumper winner this season, but 28% over the past five years. Interesting.
Nice pedigree and former Godolphin inmate who was 8-1 and stayed on strongly on debut to be 1½L second in a Market Rasen (1m5f, good to soft) bumper. Longer trip looks positive and he should give another good account.
€15,500 foal. Brother to a placed bumper runner, out of a French 1m7f Listed hurdle winner. Trainer 19% in this sphere over five seasons. Should be capable of giving a good account.
Closely related to Flat winners at around 1m1f. Dam placed over 1m2f, but there is stamina in the family. Trainer 10% in this discipline in Ireland over five seasons, and 14% in British raids over the same period. Market check suggested.
18,000gns 3yo. Brother to a 1m2f-2m winner; half-brother to 1m4f AW/2m turf and 2m hurdle winner, out of French Oaks second. Trainer 0-5 in bumpers over five seasons, but has been in good form lately. Interesting.
66-1 and was unruly at the start on debut when 9L fourth at Exeter (1m5f, good; first-time tongue-tie) recently. Not devoid of promise there, but likely to need improvement on that bare form.
€30,000 2yo. Brother to French 2m2f hurdle winner, out of a placed middle distance runner. Stable 8% over past five seasons in this sphere, and not usually known for debut winners.
€3,000 foal, €22,000 yearling. Sister to two winners over 7f-1m2f; half-sister to four winners, largely over middle distances; dam a 1m1f French Listed winner. Trainer 8% in bumpers over five seasons. Best watched unless market vibes strong.
