Has a reasonable pedigree and well prepared following 14 months off when landing 8-runner bumper at Hexham 3 weeks ago. Was well on top that day, so he can be a factor under a penalty.
€10,500 3-y-o, Ocovango gelding. Dam unraced half-sister to useful hurdler/smart chaser (stays 3m) Aye Right.
Presumably had his share of issues and little in the way of solid form in 3 outings spread out over nearly 2 years. Hood fitted.
€35,000 3-y-o, Montmartre gelding. Half-brother to fair chaser Balou de La Roque. Dam 17f chase winner. Noteworthy newcomer. Wears hood.
Desir D'un Soir gelding. Brother to fairly useful hurdler/useful chaser Dominateur. Dam unraced out of 19f-21f French chase winner Carali d'Airy.
Sageburg gelding. Half-brother to bumper winner Merchant House. Dam unraced half-sister to useful chaser (stayed 19f) Bambi de L'Orme.
£20,000 3-y-o, Court Cave gelding. Half-brother to smart hurdler/useful chaser Campeador. Dam lightly raced over hurdles. Of obvious interest on debut.
Alqaahir gelding. Dam unraced.
September Storm filly. Dam (c112/h128) 2½m-21f hurdle/chase winner (stayed 3m).
Bucko's Boy (9/4), Gericault Roque (3/1), Noahthirtytwored (7/2), Grandeur D'ame (9/2), Hartnoll Hero (17/2), Danny Park (22/1), Little Peachey (40/1), Fanfan La Colmine (40/1), Pickapocketortwo (80/1)
BUCKO'S BOY was nicely on top when making a successful reappearance at Hexham 3 weeks ago, and on that evidence, is capable of defying a penalty. Gericault Roque and Grandeur d'Ame are perhaps the pick of the newcomers.
