Milan half-brother to fairly useful hurdler/chaser Guiding George out of a half-sister to smart chaser Measureofmydreams. Yard has a 19% record in bumpers in recent years, although 0-7 this term.
£45,000 3-y-o by Oscar out of a half-sister to smart staying chaser Fruity O'Rooney, although dam's previous foals have failed to make any impact. Yard has a 17% strike rate in bumpers, and had a debutant winner in this sphere at Warwick on Friday.
Showed pretty useful form when runner-up in bumpers at Warwick and Bangor last season, travelling best both times, but overhauled late. Should be stronger this season, and sets a fair standard.
By Oscar out of an unraced half-sister to yard's Grade bumper winner Crocodile's Rock. Nit the most expensive at €20,000 as a 3-y-o, but merits a market check.
Full-brother to point/useful hurdle winner Mae's Choice and half-brother to three jumps winners, but he didn't offer much immediate cause for optimism when down the field on Worcester debut. Tongue tied now.
£38,000 3-y-o by Authorized out of an Italian Flat winner. Yard has a modest record in bumpers, and others make more appeal on paper.
Flemensfirth half-brother to fairly useful chaser Present Flight and modest hurdler Luck of The Legion. One of two for the yard in the race, and market should help picking between them.
Presenting half-sister to useful hurdler Kalann and fair hurdler Karkari. Finished runner-up on latter starts in Irish point-to-points, and has joined a leading yard. Shortlisted.
