Stable have a modest record in bumpers and this Supreme Sound gelding was soon struggling on debut at Ayr (2m, soft) 18 days ago; look elsewhere with confidence.
Cost £17,000 as a 3yo; second foal from an unraced mare; brother to the bumper winner Everlanes; likely to find others stronger.
Godolphin cast-off; 22-1 when a keeping on debut fourth (beaten 7½L) to Streets Of Doyen at Ayr (2m, good) in May; off since and will encounter more testing ground conditions here.
Rajsaman gelding from an Oasis Dream mare; it's very difficult to envisage him playing any sort of constructive role on debut.
Bought for £6,000 in August after finishing runner-up in a point at Ballingarry (3m, good) earlier in the year; seemingly one for further down the line (fences).
Cost £18,000 as a 3yo; dam was a 2m-2m4f hurdle winner; missed the second half of last season (stable had a virus) after finishing an encouraging fourth of 14 to Corrieben Reiver over C&D last December; of interest.
Kayf Tara gelding from an Alflora mare (Little Miss Flora) who represents a trainer among the winners this week; noteworthy that Richard Johnson travels north for the ride; market a helpful guide to expectations.
Germany mare; has shown precious little ability in defeat at big prices so far (Sedgefield and Hexham); can't be considered as a realistic solution; better judged once sent over obstacles.
