A newcomers bumper provides as much of a test for an analyst as it does a jockey. However, there are at least a couple of runners which can be readily ruled out here so this narrows the test markedly. Sultans Pride
is another to hail from the well known Reveley Farms breeding operation, and he has to be of some interest given his pedigree and relationship to past winners from that stable. Uluroo
represents a trainer not known for her runners in bumpers, but is an expensive French bred with a prominent owner, so is likely to be near the head of the market. However, preference is for NICEANDEASY
, whose trainer Keith Dalgleish is 2 from 6 in NHF races this campaign (Hermanous and Dubai Or Not Dubai), and whose local owners Richard and Katherine Gilbert owned a debut Newcastle NHF runner up last month (Wig Wam Wiggle).
