    The Bumper Thread

    Highly touted by Marten Julian in dark horses
    Waley-Cohen and Henerson run Theatre Territory in the listed mares race today.
    Whether today is the day or not remains to be seen as she's thought to want good ground, Bearing in mind the rain that's forecast.

    Nice run in 3rd from Theatre Territory yesterday, Travelled well but didn't quite pick up in the ground
    However the well backed winner Copper Kay did it very easily

    Today as has been pointed out by Tanlic' Lisheen prince for Philip Hobbs comes here with a bit of a reputation from PtP and was also highlighted in Dark Horses.
    I'll be sticking a few pennies on LP and Be Daring for Nicholls/Hales who should love the ground.

    Edit Be Daring a NR

    Yes, Lisheen Prince very well touted.
    Am surprised The Unit is the price he is & also think Bentworth Boy overpriced

    Jessica Harrington has produced two nice horses at Punchestown this weekend with Katy riding out of her skin.

    There was a lot of money going on the NTD horse today; am I to assume it's a bit of a betting stable?

    Yes I noticed steady money for it throughout the day too.
    I remember when Little Josh won the PP in 2010, As Twister was being interviewed straight after the he'd won that he was overjoyed but the only downside being he hadn't had a bet on him!

    Katy Harrington is the most improved rider out there.

    Her stint in Ballydoyle is paying dividends.

    Augusta Kate deserves a mention after yesterday where she hacked up in the listed mares bumper at Navan. Owned in partnership by Ant & Dec, Lee Westwood, the Wylies & a very happy Alan Shearer.... https://twitter.com/alanshearer/stat...62004580020224

    Krizon is now romantically attached , Kathy is around on Twitter, Ardross does appear here occasionally.

    BTB kinda disappeared suddenly, not sure why.

    Hot bumper in Punchestown today.
    The first three are decent looking horses while Jett may be better off over jumps at this stage.

    Looked a good race. With xmas on the horizon, there will probably be a few nice ones out in next 3 week's.

    Shame about Fulham Road

    The Bumper Thread

    La Bague Au Roi from the Warren Greatrex stable was the most impressive bumper winner today in the listed contest at Huntingdon. She won as she pleased after making all a looks a lovely type.

    11/10 was a great price this morning considering the form boost of both her previous wins. Having 2 Willie Mullins mares in the field probably meant she was backable this morning.

    Looks like she'll head to Aintree next after a well earned break.

    His entry is for the Newbury DBS bumper. I don't think Festival Bumper entries are made until January at the earliest.
    The older I get the better I was.

    agree with all this, particularly as she did all the hard work. Hopefully she'll be a little forgotten by Aintree and overpriced
