£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.

£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.

€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.

Betting

Forecast

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)

Verdict

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.

  1. THOMAS KERSHAW (IRE)
  2. SETTLE DOWN (FR)
  3. CITY DERBY (IRE)
