511-12OR:
8/1

Won a bumper at Sligo by a neck from Sweettowatch in the summer for Gordon Elliott, and joined current yard for £42,000 subsequently. That was a modest enough affair, and he will need to improve to defy a penalty.

511-5OR:
5/1

Placed on all three starts in bumpers, showing fairly useful form on each occasion. Again raced freely when third of 14 to Pennine Cross at Catterick last time, and can do better if she settles.

511-5OR:
50/1

Yeats half-brother to modest hurdler Swift. Yard has a poor record in bumpers in recent years, and this gelding would appear to be one for the longer term.

511-5OR: WS
28/1

Dylan Thomas gelding who cost £44,000 at Doncaster Sales in May after falling while upsides at last in Irish point. Better than bare result when sixth of 8 to Dakota Beat at Hexham on bumper debut, and has since had a breathing operation.

511-5OR:
5/1

Made a successful debut in the pointing field in May having been sold for €35,000 the previous year. Yard has a 20% record in bumpers, and this gelding makes plenty of appeal on rules bow.

511-5OR:
11/2

From family of high-class hurdler Iktitaf. Yard was quiet, and he shaped as if needing experience when seventh of 16 to Where's Tom in a bumper at Ascot in October. Open to improvement, and not taken lightly.

511-5OR:
10/11

Universal gelding, who shaped really well when second of 12 to Blazing Port over C&D on debut, and that form is set to be tested in the first division of this contest. Makes plenty of appeal on form.

610-12OR:
200/1

Related to connections' staying chaser Lord Brendy, but needed wind surgery before his debut at Kelso in November, and didn't show enough there to be of interest in the short term.

410-7OR:
100/1

Dalakhani half-brother to 1m3f winner Conversation. Flat-orientated yard has a fair record in bumpers, and at this course, so merits a market check ahead of bumper debut.

Betting

Forecast

Universal Folly (10/11), Lubeat Foras (5/1), Cockney Beau (5/1), On Springs (11/2), Last Golden Ticket (8/1), Kearney Hill (28/1), Glen Ballagh (50/1), Salad Days (100/1), Teelar (200/1)

Verdict

Much will depend on the way the first division pans out, but UNIVERSAL FOLLY looked a certain future winner when chasing home Blazing Port over C&D on debut, and normal improvement should make him hard to beat. Point winner Lubeat Foras appeals most of the newcomers, and could be a bigger threat than the penalised Last Golden Ticket, who starts out for Donald McCain after scoring at Sligo for Gordon Elliott.
