05/04/21 Cork 5/14 Mr H. C. Swan Bumper 2m 3f Gd/Sft 12st 2lbs

Cheap Kodiac gelding who didn't offer a great deal when fifth at Hereford 51 days ago. Easily passed over.

25/03/22 Hereford 5/8 Jamie Moore Bumper 2m 53y Good 10st 7lbs

Half-brother to French 9.5f winner and showed plenty to work on when runner-up at Bangor on debut, doing his best work at the finish. Might not need to improve on that to go one better.

€20,000 3-y-o, £50,000 4-y-o, Kingston Hill gelding. Half-brother to fairly useful chaser Hazzaar, stays 19f. Runner-up sole outing in Irish point (Feb 12), and bumper runners from yard continue to impress.

Mrs Marie Martin silk
No. 7

Delegator mare. Half-sister to numerous winners, including fairly useful hurdler/chaser Ganbei and fair hurdler/fairly useful 2½m chase winner John Louis. One to note on pedigree.

Tony Worth & Vic Bedley silk
No. 3

Universal gelding. Brother to fairly useful 19f hurdle winner Universal Dave. Dam unraced half-sister to fairly useful hurdler/fair chaser (2½m/21f winner) Rathcor.

Proconsul gelding. Dam ran once over hurdles/modest maiden on Flat. Doesn't make much appeal on breeding, but stable has been in rude health lately.
