£21,000 3-y-o. Dam, lightly raced in bumpers/once-raced hurdler, out of bumper winner/fair hurdler (2m winner) Reine des Reines. Very much one to note in the betting on debut for respected yard.
No Risk At All gelding. Dam unraced sister to 17f-2¼m hurdle/chase winner (including Italian Group 2) Brav. Interesting to see what the market has to say.
Decent jumps pedigree but didn't shape with much immediate promise on debut at Bangor 3 weeks ago.
€26,000 3-y-o. Closely related to bumper winner Fest Deiz. Dam, placed in French bumpers, half-sister to (17f-31f hurdle/chase winner in France) Sulon. Likely-looking type.
£30,000 3-y-o. Half-brother to 3 winners on Flat, including 1½m winner Zarinski. Dam 1¼m winner. Makes plenty of appeal on paper for top yard and needs close attention in the betting.
€23,000 3-y-o, Shirocco gelding. Dam, 2½m/2¾m hurdle/chase winner, sister to useful chaser (stays 2¾m) A Rated. Runner-up sole start between the Flags and interesting on Rules debut.
€55,000 3-y-o, Walk In The Park gelding. Half-brother to Calinella. Dam 17f hurdle winner in France. Yard can ready a newcomer and the market should point the way.
Well held on debut/sole start for Richard Bandey in Ludlow bumper in January. Tongue strap added for this return/first run for new yard.
Well held when last of 6 in Sedgefield bumper on debut/sole start for Jamie Snowden in March.
City Derby (6/4), Gerard Mentor (9/2), Thomas Kershaw (5/1), Walk In The Wild (13/2), Settle Down (7/1), Dobryn (14/1), Generous Leader (40/1), Cup Of Coffee (50/1), Miss Mahmite (100/1)
Mick Channon boasts a healthy 22% strike rate in bumpers in recent seasons and THOMAS KERSHAW, who was runner-up on his sole start between the flags, is taken to make a winning Rules debut. The betting will be potentially informative where several of his rivals are concerned, with the Paul Nicholls-trained Settle Down and Kim Bailey's Gerard Mentor the most interesting among them.
