Already had a wind op prior to his debut; yard are 3-31 with bumper newcomers in the last five years (1-4 at Bangor). Half-brother to poor hurdler Vodka Island, makes his debut aged six others make more appeal.
Point-to-point winner at third attempt, makes his Rules debut for a yard who should always be respected in this sphere. 16-72 with bumper debutants (last five years); half-brother to fairly useful hurdler/chaser Westland Row, likely to get involved.
Form of his debut bumper at Warwick has worked out well and his sound effort after an eight month break at Ascot last time (runner-up) suggests he can win a modest bumper. Connections appear to have found an ideal opportunity here.
5yo purchased for £70,000 after being placed in both his Irish point-to-point starts late last year. Given a wind op prior to his Rules/bumper debut, has to be respected in a race that won't take much winning; looks the stables first choice.
Hinted at modest amount of ability on her C&D bumper debut despite eventually finishing well held. Did a little better when last seen at Warwick fading after being prominent for a fair way; more needed to trouble the principals.
