wind wind Formed encouragingly when she was fifth on her hurdles debut at the Galway Festival, a race in which she was still traveling well when a mistake two stopped her in her tracks. She jumped soundly up to that point and the rider didn’t give her a hard time once it became clear that her chance had been missed. That experience is sure to bring her, and the shape of the bumpers indicates that she is well capable of winning a race of this type now on the trek and back against her race.
Tinder and He apparently showed somewhat useful form when he was fifth on his Galway debut two weeks ago, swiping the post about 12 lengths behind the clever Darver Star. He was almost certainly flattered for being so close to this competitor, but it was still a very promising start to his career despite the obstacles. This model clearly sets the standard in this lineup and looks like a good chance for him to off the mark on the second try.

to EBASA The score was much better than the bare score when she was last seen fourth in a major handicap at Galway, and her defeat performance improved by only five lengths after she made a huge mistake on the last ride. He only increases 1 pound in weights today and leaves the impression that he might be putting in more effort in the closet when all goes wrong. After only his third appearance in a handicap, he earned the vote to come out on top in a fierce competition.
he follows She caught the eye when she filled in runners-up in Cork in July, edged past the post by just one and a half distances from the winner and looked unlucky not near the finish after facing two troubles. He’s been doing fine in the apartment lately and 3lbs higher than when he lined up in Cork it still looks fair now over the hurdles. Clearly he can win with a normal handicap and today could be the day.

she’s perfect He was undefeated much when he was sixth in the listed rookie hurdle at Galway, remaining good to defeat only two and a quarter times and arguably deserving of the extra credit after being held back more than ideal. She’s now switching to handicaps and she’s too one to stay on the right side on her fourth start just over the hurdles. The 114 certainly seems fair when judged based on the strength of its Galloway form, and the earlier step in the journey could lead to further improvement.
great king He’s a smart hurdler in his day and the form he showed when he was last seen finishing third in the second division at the Fairyhouse in April was right there with his best effort. A tall eunuch, he has a good physique to chase and this seems like an excellent opportunity for him to start a life in the field. He had a higher barrier rating than any of his six competitors, and those with previous fence experience didn’t show much.
Abidel He is the half-brother of several winners, including clever barrier/chaser Irish Saint and bumper winner/helpful blocker Welsh Saint. Trained by Gordon Elliott, he is in the right hands to have a successful jumping career himself. Others in this bumper probably don’t have the same potential and it wouldn’t be surprising if he proved that he could successfully debut.
