Form & Verdict
Pulled up in his first two Irish points but he won the last two in the spring; out of a half-sister to a bumper winner and he's an interesting contender on his switch to this sphere; has joined yard with 17% record in bumpers this season.

5 yo Mare

OR:

Form & Verdict
Half-sister to useful 2m1f-2m3f hurdle winner Impervious; took six attempts to get off the mark in Irish points but she came good with an easy win from the front in May; new yard is 2-7 in bumpers this season and it wouldn't be a surprise if this mare was a major player on her rules debut.

OR:

Form & Verdict
Attracted support into 14-1 over C&D (good; tongue-tie applied) early this month but he couldn't sustain his effort before finishing fourth of nine; showed some ability in that race but the form is not strong and others are preferred.

W: 11st 4lb

6 yo Gelding

OR:

Form & Verdict
Closely related to winners Focal Maith (7f-1m4f Flat/2m hurdle) and Focal Eile (1m-8.6f) and is a half-brother to six other winners; showed some promise when runner-up in his third Irish point in May and market should be informative on this switch to rules.
