Promise in points and again on bumper debut for Chris Gordon over C&D last month, running on well for second under this rider. Should improve for new yard.

Kapgarde gelding from the family of top stable performer Politologue. Encouraging fourth in decent Ascot bumper on debut in November then not seen to best effect in messy Wincanton race on Boxing Day.

Farhh gelding. Half-brother to 7f/1m winner City Bridge. Dam, ran once on Flat, half-sister to useful hurdler (stayed 21f) Loch Ard. Makes plenty of appeal on paper.
Promising start when placed in Kempton and Doncaster bumpers but needs more still to prevail here.

£24,000 3-y-o, Masterstroke gelding. Half-brother to fairly useful hurdler/chaser Fraternel and 17f French chase winner Espoir du Turf.
Half-brother to 5 winners, notably high-class hurdler Wicklow Brave. Failed to meet expectations in 3-y-o Aintree bumper on debut in November but given a break since and could progress.
|07/11/20||Aintree||4/5||Bumper||2m 209y||Soft||10st 12lbs||Harry Skelton||2.15|
It's Gino brother to 3 winners, including stable star, smart hurdler/very smart chaser Lalor who won bumper on debut. Of obvious interest.
Stayed on gradually for second in Exeter bumper in December but it amounts to just poor form.
|04/12/20||Exeter||2/8||Bumper||2m 175y||Heavy||10st 7lbs||Miss Harriet Tucker||40|

Probably a fair bumper and KANDOO KID is taken to get off the mark at the third time of asking. American Gerry has more to offer for his new yard, while Trust The Dreams and Lallygag are interesting newcomers.
