Newton King Estate Agents Maiden Open National Hunt Flat (5) Class 5

Promising start when placed in Kempton and Doncaster bumpers but needs more still to prevail here.

Date Course/Class Pos Jockey Type Dist. Gng. HDGR WGT
18/03/21 Doncaster 2/9 Brian Hughes Bumper 2m 128y Good 10st 9lbs
11/02/21 Kempton Park 3/12 Paddy Brennan Bumper 2m Slow 10st 8lbs
Piggy Blinders silk
No. 10

Stayed on gradually for second in Exeter bumper in December but it amounts to just poor form.

04/12/20 Exeter 2/8 Miss Harriet Tucker Bumper 2m 175y Heavy 10st 7lbs
28/10/20 Taunton 8/12 Page Fuller Bumper 2m 104y Good 10st 12lbs

Kapgarde gelding from the family of top stable performer Politologue. Encouraging fourth in decent Ascot bumper on debut in November then not seen to best effect in messy Wincanton race on Boxing Day.

26/12/20 Wincanton 3/13 Megan Nicholls Bumper 1m 7f 65y Soft z 11st 0lbs
21/11/20 Ascot 4/13 Harry Cobden Bumper 1m 7f 152y Gd/Sft z 11st 0lbs

Half-brother to 5 winners, notably high-class hurdler Wicklow Brave. Failed to meet expectations in 3-y-o Aintree bumper on debut in November but given a break since and could progress.

07/11/20 Aintree 4/5 Harry Skelton Bumper 2m 209y Soft 10st 12lbs

Farhh gelding. Half-brother to 7f/1m winner City Bridge. Dam, ran once on Flat, half-sister to useful hurdler (stayed 21f) Loch Ard. Makes plenty of appeal on paper.

Promise in points and again on bumper debut for Chris Gordon over C&D last month, running on well for second under this rider. Should improve for new yard.

04/03/21 Taunton 2/10 Nathan Brennan Bumper 2m 104y Soft 11st 2lbs

£24,000 3-y-o, Masterstroke gelding. Half-brother to fairly useful hurdler/chaser Fraternel and 17f French chase winner Espoir du Turf.

It's Gino brother to 3 winners, including stable star, smart hurdler/very smart chaser Lalor who won bumper on debut. Of obvious interest.
