15:25 Market Rasen Thu 5 December 2019
Yard not really known for their bumper runners (0-7 last five years) so this Passing Glance gelding can probably be left out of calculations debut. Looks one for the longer term in any case judged on his pedigree.
Asked a tough question on his debut at Newbury in a deep bumper over 2m abut showed very little having raced well off the pace. This is a more realistic level but still has plenty to prove.
Newcomer from a yard that are 5-71 with debutants in this sphere over the past five years. Dam unraced half-sister to modest hurdler/useful chaser Pete The Feat; ungenuine but fairly useful hurdler/useful chaser Atlantic Roller; note a market move.
Second on his bumper debut at Carlisle (2m1f, soft) he shaped as though he will need a greater test of stamina (unlikely to get that here). That was a promising start though; can't be ignored with that experience behind him despite the yards woes.
£800 yearling from a yard that are unlikely foes in a bumper having a 0-7 record with newcomers in this sphere in the last five years. Out of a maiden dam he's probably best watched on debut.
Half-brother to smart hurdler Getaway Trump who showed some promise in two Irish maiden point-to-points and was then bought for £48,000. Yard have only had two bumper runners one a well backed newcomer at Catterick recently, one to keep an eye on.
Second in a point-to-point earlier in the year when 5-4 favourite; showed plenty of ability on his Rules debut in an Ascot bumper. Did well given the tough task he was set (best of those coming from off the pace); sure to show more on this occasion.
Sister to bumper winner Mountain Path, and half-sister to 2 winners, including bumper winner Sherry her pedigree suggests that she should make an impact in this sphere. Held back by inexperience on her debut; returns after a significant absence.
Newcomer, €25,000 yearling from a yard that are 6-38 with their bumper debutants in the last five years. Dam 2yo winner at up to 1m; pedigree lacks stamina but hard to write her off given connections.
Dam was a staying hurdle chase winner so there should be some stamina in the pedigree of this newcomer. Yard 2-16 with bumper newcomers in the last five years; possibility that she may need this and further in time.
Half-sister to six winners, including useful hurdler/chaser Duel At Dawn (stablemate) and bumper winner/fairly useful hurdler Miles To Memphis. Yard not known for bumper winners (0-12 with newcomers last five years) but they are in good form.
