|03/11/18||Ayr||2/8||Bumper||2m||Gd/Sft||11st 2lbs||Lorcan Murtagh||5.56|
Impressive winner of a Warwick bumper on debut in January so shade underwhelming he failed to land a blow on return/hurdles bow here (15.7f) last month. However, surely better to come from him.
|04/10/20||Uttoxeter||4/11||Hurdle||1m 7f 168y||Gd/Sft||11st 0lbs||Fergus Gregory||9.44|
|11/01/20||Warwick||1/18||Bumper||2m||Soft||11st 5lbs||Aidan Coleman||20.75|
Well held sole bumper start but better for hurdles debut when third in a C&D novice last month, that despite being badly hampered 2 out. May do better again, particularly over further.

|16/10/20||Uttoxeter||6/12||Hurdle||1m 7f 168y||Gd/Sft||10st 12lbs||James Nixon||90.31|
|26/06/19||Ffos Las||5/8||Bumper||1m 7f 182y||Good||11st 0lbs||Charlie Price||14.46|
Carlotamix gelding who displayed fair form on 2 of his 3 starts over hurdles for Jessica Harrington. Has joined another excellent outfit and no surprise to see him come forward again.
|28/08/20||Down Royal||2/12||Hurdle||2m 4f||Soft||11st 6lbs||Conor Orr||11.5|
|22/03/20||Downpatrick||7/15||Hurdle||2m 2f 165y||Gd/Sft||12st 0lbs||S. F. O'Keeffe||27.08|
|22/02/20||Fairyhouse||4/13||Hurdle||2m||Heavy||11st 11lbs||Robbie Power||19.61|
£50,000 half-brother to 4 winners, including fairly useful hurdler/chaser Humbie (2m-3m winner). Dam from family of top-class chaser Denman. Easy winner sole start in Irish points and interesting.
€100,000 purchase who showed a bit on bumper debut in January and clear signs of greenness getting in the way of progress on hurdles bow in October (ran out last). Undoubtedly remains with potential.
|09/10/20||Chepstow||-/9||Hurdle||2m 11y||Good||10st 12lbs||Jonjo O'Neill Jr.||46|
|11/01/20||Warwick||10/18||Bumper||2m||Soft||11st 5lbs||A. P. Heskin||26.23|
£32,000 3-y-o. Dam point winner. Represents leading connections ahead of Rules/hurdling debut and he's well worth close market scrutiny for clues.
Fairly useful Flat performer in Germany but was off over 2 years and very little to shout about in 2 starts so far this winter. Low-grade handicaps may be more his bag later on.

Cloudings gelding who proved easy to back and was ultimately well held in a Warwick bumper last December. Switched yards for £12,000 subsequently and this should reveal more.
|31/12/19||Warwick||10/14||Bumper||2m||Soft||11st 0lbs||Jonjo O'Neill Jr.||16.67|
Unseated rider sole start in points but displayed ability amidst greenness when third in a Bangor bumper in September. Well beaten in a Ludlow novice hurdle since, however.
|22/10/20||Ludlow||10/13||Hurdle||1m 7f 169y||Good||10st 12lbs||Lee Edwards||243.69|
|30/09/20||Bangor-On-Dee||3/8||Bumper||2m 145y||Heavy||11st 2lbs||Sam Twiston-Davies||15.95|
Remote second of 2 finishers sole outing in points and showed next to nothing under Rules to date.
|14/11/20||Uttoxeter||-/11||Hurdle||2m 3f 207y||Soft||11st 0lbs||Lee Edwards||1000|

|08/01/19||Bangor-On-Dee||13/13||Bumper||2m 145y||Gd/Sft||11st 5lbs||Liam Heard||1000|
Some progress in bumpers, albeit modest stuff and he was never a threat on return/hurdles debut at Chepstow (19.5f) 2 weeks ago.
|09/11/20||Chepstow||7/11||Hurdle||2m 3f 100y||Soft||11st 0lbs||William Featherstone||130|

|06/12/19||Exeter||-/16||Bumper||2m 175y||Soft||10st 12lbs||Jack Quinlan||54.12|
Fame And Glory filly who showed a bit more than previously without posing a threat when distant fourth in a Ludlow mares' maiden (15.7f) recently. Needs another run for a mark.
|12/11/20||Ludlow||4/9||Hurdle||1m 7f 169y||Good||11st 4lbs||Robert Dunne||970|
|27/10/20||Bangor-On-Dee||-/12||Hurdle||2m 145y||Heavy||10st 5lbs||Robert Dunne||1000|
Henrythenavigator mare. Half-sister to 3 winners on Flat, including 1½m winner Mabdhool. Sent off at 80/1 and showed nothing when pulled up on hurdles debut earlier this month.
|12/11/20||Ludlow||-/9||Hurdle||1m 7f 169y||Good||11st 4lbs||Charlie Todd||260|
An interesting opener with several holding claims. NICKELSONTHEDIME has twice shaped well over hurdles for his present stable and looks sure to be in the mix with the potential for better still. I'm So Busy, on debut for Dr Newland, Here Comes McCoy and facile point scorer Tallow For Coal head up the dangers.
