Showed fairly useful form in bumpers. including when ninth in Champion Bumper at Cheltenham, but proved a let-down on Kelso hurdling debut back in May, folding tamely late on having made most. Should be capable of better back from a break.

Opened his account in bumpers on first start for this yard (left Amy Murphy after just 1 run) in 7-runner event at this course (16f, good) 23 days ago, getting first run. That was a weak race though, so more will needed now switching to hurdles.

Fair hurdler/bumper performer in Ireland but has run below that level both starts for his new yard this summer. Needs to up his game.

£28,000 3-y-o, Black Sam Bellamy gelding. Half-brother to 3 winners, including fairly useful hurdler/useful chaser Monbeg Legend and fair chaser Absolute Jaffa. Wears hood.

Runner-up sole start in Irish points and went one better in a Doncaster bumper on Rules debut in January. Fared best of the pacesetters in a strongly-run affair at Warwick 9 weeks later and rates an interesting hurdling debutant.
