€70,000 Nathaniel gelding. Dam 11f-13f winner. Likely type for top connections.
Saonois gelding. Brother to French 1¼m-1½m winner Assonance. Dam, 8.5f winner, closely related to fairly useful hurdler (in France) Compatriote. Stable gets bumper winners. Needs a betting check.
Phoenix Reach colt. Dam (c84/h111) unreliable bumper/19f-3m hurdle winner. Betting should help guide to expectations.
Oscar gelding. Dam unraced half-sister to very smart hurdler/fairly useful chaser (17f-2¾m winner) Oscar Dan Dan. Well held in a point last December and a likely outsider on this Rules debut.
Getaway colt. dam, placed in bumpers/maiden hurdler, sister to useful hurdler/smart chaser (runner-up in Grand National) Oscar Time.
Shirocco half-sister to bumper winner Presentandcounting and fair hurdler Lady McCabe. Of obvious interest on debut for her very much in form yard.
Robin Des Champs gelding. Dam unraced half-sister to fair hurdler/fairly useful chaser (2½m-3m winner) Bothair Clei and fair chaser Silence Speaks. Another noteworthy newcomer in this line-up.
33/1, twelfth of 13 in bumper at Market Rasen (16.6f, soft) on debut in March. Likely up against it on return.
|15/03/20||Market Rasen||12/13||Bumper||2m 125y||Soft||10st 4lbs||Mark Grant||55|
Won point bumper on debut back in March 2019. Taken a bit of time to get her back but yard does well in these events and she needs monitoring in the betting.
£40,000 Sholokhov gelding. Dam unraced half-sister to temperamental but useful hurdler/chaser (stayed 3m) Splash of Ginge. Has had wind surgery. Makes obvious appeal for top yard.
Several interesting newcomers. INVESTMENT MANAGER gets a tentative vote for Colin Tizzard but Seelotmorebusiness, Ordered Lives and Rideau Canal are a few other likely types on paper in a race where the betting is sure to provide more clues.
