18/1, keeping-on second of 14 in bumper at Ballinrobe (16f, good to soft) on NH debut 24 days ago. In the mix with more in the pipelines.
|24/08/20||Ballinrobe||2/14||Bumper||2m||Gd/sft||11st 7lbs||Mr P. Harty||27|
125/1, fifth of 14 in bumper at Punchestown (16.7f, soft) on belated NH debut 8 days ago. Needs more if she's to figure here.
|09/09/20||Punchestown||5/14||Bumper||2m 150y||Soft||11st 2lbs||Mr R. J. Kiely||330|
17/2, promising third of 11 in bumper at Down Royal (16.4f, soft) on NH debut 20 days ago, running green but going on well late on. Sure to build on that so holds leading claims for top yard.
|28/08/20||Down Royal||3/11||Bumper||2m 100y||Soft||11st 4lbs||Ms Lisa O'Neill||13|
20/1, encouraging fourth of 13 in bumper at Clonmel (16.4f, good) on NH debut 14 days ago. Likely to do better so she's not ruled out.
|03/09/20||Clonmel||4/13||Bumper||2m 81y||Good||11st 9lbs||J. P. O'Sullivan||28.54|
Getaway filly. Half-sister to fairly useful hurdler Atlantic Gold. Dam fair bumper winner. Not without interest on paper so newcomer is worth a market check.
25/1, stayed on late when third of 13 in bumper at Cork (16f, soft) on NH debut 55 days ago. Has more to offer so one for the shortlist.
|24/07/20||Cork||3/13||Bumper||2m||Soft||11st 3lbs||Mr D. E. Phelan||48.85|
Hooded, ninth of 14 in bumper at Punchestown (16.7f, soft, 10/1) on NH debut 8 days ago. Needs a big step forward here.
|09/09/20||Punchestown||9/14||Bumper||2m 150y||Soft||H||11st 2lbs||Mr D. L. Queally||15.38|
Twice-raced maiden under NH rules. 12/1, ninth of 11 in bumper at Listowel (16f, good to soft) on bumper debut. Off 12 months with plenty to prove.
|13/09/19||Listowel||9/11||Bumper||2m||Gd/sft||H||11st 9lbs||Mr D. O'Connor||17|
|30/08/19||Down Royal||5/13||Hurdle||2m 100y||Gd/sft||H||10st 13lbs||R. A. Doyle||79.15|
Lightly-raced maiden, below-form fourth of 10 in bumper at Kilbeggan (16f, soft, 11/4) 27 days ago. Needs to bounce back now.
|21/08/20||Kilbeggan||4/10||Bumper||2m||Soft||11st 4lbs||Mr E. P. O'Brien||4.2|
|03/08/20||Roscommon||4/14||Bumper||1m 7f 80y||Gd/sft||11st 2lbs||Mr E. P. O'Brien||16.9|

|15/02/20||Gowran Park||12/17||Bumper||2m 1f||Heavy||10st 9lbs||Mr D. G. Whelan||180|
Thrice-raced maiden under NH rules. Fifth of 11 in novice hurdle (15/2) at Wexford (20f, soft) on hurdles bow 19 days ago. Switches back to bumpers so one for the shortlist.
|29/08/20||Wexford||5/11||Hurdle||2m 4f||Soft||11st 9lbs||Berry M. Clifton||10.11|
|14/08/20||Tramore||3/12||Bumper||2m||Gd/sft||11st 9lbs||Mr J. P. Berry||20.6|
|25/07/20||Tramore||3/11||Bumper||2m||Gd/sft||11st 9lbs||Mr J. P. Berry||36.19|
Failed to build on debut second at Limerick when only twelfth of 14 in bumper at Ballinrobe (16f, good to soft) 24 days ago. Heavily backed there so worth another chance for leading yard.
|24/08/20||Ballinrobe||12/14||Bumper||2m||Gd/sft||11st 7lbs||Mr P. W. Mullins||2.28|
|22/06/20||Limerick||2/12||Bumper||2m 100y||Good||11st 7lbs||Mr P. W. Mullins||3.2|
Twice-raced maiden, in need of run after 12 months off when only twelfth of 13 in bumper (33/1) at Clonmel (16.4f, good) 14 days ago. Likely to step forward now.
|03/09/20||Clonmel||12/13||Bumper||2m 81y||Good||11st 9lbs||Mr C. M. Quirke||58.91|
|13/09/19||Listowel||4/11||Bumper||2m||Gd/sft||11st 5lbs||Mr C. M. Quirke||57.71|
CLASS BISHOP LADY rates the form pick on her Down Royal debut third so looks the way to go here with a fair bit of improvement anticipated. Lily Light Foot also showed up her well on her bumper debut when runner-up at Ballinrobe so rates the chief threat, although Wild Caprice is worth considering too if building on her encouraging Clonmel fourth.
