Race 1 Bangor 13:55 Handicap Chase (Class 4) 20f

244 Midnight Jewel
Building up a fine strike rate, seeing off a subsequent winner after that one's mistake at the last in 21.6f Fontwell handicap chase 3 weeks ago. Good shout again up 5 lb.
11-9Lilly PinchinCharlie Longsdonlocked2/11.2/140
782 Pens Man
Built on his reappearance to record his third win from just 6 starts over fences in Southwell handicap over this trip 11 weeks ago. Career-high mark to overcome now but could well be up to the task.
11-12Kevin BroganJonjo O'Neilllocked2.75/14/145
256 Obey The Rules
Bagged a third success over fences in 17.2f Market Rasen handicap last month. Fair run at Stratford since but more needed in this and also unproven over the trip.
10-11Theo GillardDonald McCainlocked4.5/13.2/129
235 Abaya Du Mathan
Scored over fences at Ffos Las in April. More miss than hit since but claims on penultimate Worcester third now back in trip.
11-6Philip ArmsonDavid Pipelocked6/111/183
251 Rostello
Well held in 3 runs since his July Stratford success, not jumping great back there the last twice, and yard remains quiet.
12-0Luke ScottDr Richard Newlandlocked8/112/150
1653 Cracking Find
Won handicap chase at Newcastle over this trip on final start in 2021/22 and several creditable efforts last term. On a good mark if returning in good form.

Race 2 Bangor 14:26 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 20f

1222 Peerless Beauty
Bumped into an unbeaten rival on hurdles debut and took advantage of facing lesser opposition when easily getting off mark at Worcester (20f) in May. Tad disappointing when third under a penalty at Uttoxeter later that month but still rates a key player.
11-7Jack HoganFergal O'Brienlocked3.33/13/110
1221 Famous Function
Fame And Glory mare who made the frame on both her starts in Irish points. Poor in bumpers and brushed aside her sole rival on her Fontwell hurdling debut (21.8f) in May. Had breathing operation since and more needed under a penalty.
11-7Brian HughesDonald McCainlocked3.5/110/1186
1835 Copperfasten
Half-sister to useful hurdler Copper Gone West and bought for £160,00 after winning sole start between the flags. Finished only midfield in a bumper at Uttoxeter on her Rules debut back in March but should do better now hurdling.
11-0Alan JohnsTim Vaughanlocked5/16/120
1764 Betty's Belle
Isn't bred to be much but justified support when making a winning bumper debut at Warwick. Fair efforts all 3 starts since and commands respect on hurdles debut.
11-0Luca MorganBen Paulinglocked5.5/12.5/155
216 Liloo D'Ores
Fair form over hurdles/fences in France. Disappointing first 2 starts on British soil but took a step back in the right direction following a breathing operation and a 6-week break when third in a Uttoxeter maiden (19.9f) 3 weeks ago. Possibilities if building on that.
11-0Kevin BroganGary Hanmerlocked8/14.5/144
1683 Apple Away
£35,000 5-y-o. Arctic Cosmos mare. Dam, point winner, half-sister to useful hurdler (stays 3m) Dr Des. Easily off mark in Irish points at third attempt (Apr 13) and she's an interesting hurdling debutante.
11-0Derek FoxLucinda Russelllocked8/111/138
1577 Shesasuperstar
£16,000 5-y-o, Ocovango mare. Half-sister to fair 2½m hurdle winner Mrs Barnes. Dam point winner. Maiden Irish pointer, runner-up last 2 starts (latest Apr 24). Market should prove a good guide on Rules debut.
11-0Mr Tommie M Clive locked18/133/183
1378 Gamesters Girl
Hinted at ability in 2 course bumpers but plenty more needed now hurdling. Hooded.

Race 3 Bangor 15:01 Handicap Chase (Class 5) 17f

146 Getaman
Opened account at Perth in July and doubled his tally in straightforward style when making all at Kelso (17f) 2 weeks ago. Going the right way and needs considering.
11-1Tom BellamyD J Jeffreyslocked2.75/15.5/1100
649 Kepy Blanc
Regressive over hurdles but back on track switched to fences when second at Worcester. Claims if building on that.
10-7Tom O'BrienPhilip Hobbslocked4/13.33/117
1492 Heritier
Bolted up on chase debut at Market Rasen in March but failed to land the odds when only third there 8 days later. Back on track when third at Warwick in May and respected back from a break.
11-13Craig NicholOliver Greenall & locked4/12.75/131
231 Captain Ivan
Fair dual winner at 2m over hurdles. Runner-up on first 2 starts over fences and had excuses since, pulling too hard upped in trip latest. Worth another chance back down in trip/class.
12-2Brian HughesL J Morganlocked5/15.5/110
257 Razzo Italiano
Ran about as well as could have been expected from stiff opening mark when fourth at Stratford last time. Makes chase debut.
11-0Kevin BroganGary Hanmerlocked8/16/125
1415 Augharue
Once-raced in Irish points. Mid-field in bumpers and modest form over hurdles. Needs to improve for the switch to fences back from a break.
11-5Sam ColtherdStuart Coltherdlocked9/110/111
378 Gambie Tiep
French bumper winner but has struggled this season, including on debut for this yard at Stratford latest.
10-8Conor RingSarah-Jayne Davieslocked11/116/145
8423 Evron
Ex-French. Maiden hurdler/chaser. Winning pointer but pulled up last time (Apr 18).
11-13Stan SheppardMatt Sheppardlocked40/166/165
254 Charlie Siringo
Lost his way in Ireland and best watched for new yard.
11-9Charlie HammondMax Younglocked66/150/124
2410 Le Mur
Little worthwhile form over hurdles. 13 lb out of the handicap on chase bow.

Race 4 Bangor 15:36 Handicap Hurdle (Class 4) 23f

361 Blakeney Point
Unpredictable overall but confirmed promise of his second over 19.5f here in July when running out a good winner of a C&D handicap 5 weeks ago, produced to lead after 2 out and driven clear. Claims from 7 lb higher if arriving in same groove.
12-0Abbie McCainDonald McCainlocked2.5/11.2/152
164 Ted's Friend
Fairly useful hurdler who confirmed promise of his fourth place finish over shorter here when taking a 23f Worcester handicap 16 days ago, always holding on. Remains unexposed at this trip so not discounted up 6 lb.
11-11Max KendrickFergal O'Brienlocked2.75/12.5/19
1677 Madera Mist
8-y-o mare who is better known as a fair chaser, posting a career-best when successful again in that sphere at Cheltenham (26f) in April. Betting should guide on return to action/back over hurdles.
11-0Alan JohnsTim Vaughanlocked4.5/118/1300
1652 Go Chique
Bumper winner who doubled tally in handicap hurdles at Hereford (25.5f) in March. Seemingly not herself when tailed off at Haydock the following month but returns to action with yard amongst the winners, so certainly no forlorn hope.
11-11Nico de BoinvilleNicky Hendersonlocked5/14/120
738 Oxwich Bay
Resumed winning ways over fences at Chepstow (19.5f) in April and filled runners-up spot on 2 of next 3 starts, latterly over hurdles at Ffos Las (20f) in June. Not in same form at Newton Abbot in July but not out of things back from a short break.
10-12Luke CarberryEvan Williamslocked11/114/127
645 Iron Heart
Produced just about his best effort to date when second at Worcester (20f) in June, no extra final 100 yds but clear of rest. Not in same form at Perth next time though, and got no further than the first returned to Worcester in July. Up further in trip now. Blinkered.
11-5Fergus GillardDavid Pipelocked16/116/10
363 Starsky
Dual winner over hurdles at up to 26f who ended time with Dan Skelton on a below par note at Worcester (23f) in June. Changed hands for £4,500 thereafter but fell early back over fences here (3m) 5 weeks ago. Cheekpieces refitted ahead of hurdles return.
11-11Nathan BrennanBarry Brennanlocked20/166/1230
6906 Chanceanotherfive
Landed 3m handicap hurdle from 2 lb higher mark at Perth this time 2 years ago but absent since finishing well held at Kelso (25.7f) later that year. Best watched unless market vibes proved particularly positive.

Race 5 Bangor 16:11 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 17f

3077 Keep Running
Had some fair form in France in autumn 2021. Prominent showing likely on stable debut assuming he's ready to roll after 10 months off.
11-2Daryl JacobHarry Whittingtonlocked2/12/10
1864 Stroll On By
Well-bred 5-y-o who ran to a fair level in bumpers last season, finishing placed 3 times. Ought to be up to making his presence felt in a race like this now hurdling.
11-4Brian HughesCharlie Longsdonlocked2.75/11.75/136
20011 Rocktreerunner
Closely related to smart hurdler/useful chaser Bitofapuzzle, and half-sister to 2 winners, including bumper winner/fairly useful hurdler Golden Gael. Won a British point in March. Good pedigree. Interesting to see what the betting makes of her.
10-11Henry BrookeOliver Greenall & locked9/122/1144
1516 Iron D'ex
£60,000 purchase after finishing third in an Irish point in May. Interesting to see what the betting makes of him on Rules debut.
11-2Sean HoulihanSheila Lewislocked12/125/1108
1458 The Geordie Ginge
Ran to only a modest level when 6 lengths fourth of 7 in a Market Rasen bumper in July. Connections waste no time switching him to hurdles.
11-2Sam Twiston-DaviesNigel locked12/16.5/146
425 Thunder Flash
Fair handicapper on Flat (stays 1¾m), winning twice at Leicester this summer. Could easily have a say on hurdle debut.
11-4Charlie ToddIan Williamslocked16/114/113
1599 This Ones For Fred
Just the one win to his name from 14 starts on the Flat. Well held in 2 hurdle starts in the spring and could only consider if backed on his return to action.
11-2Tom CannonAlan Kinglocked20/125/125
7610 Tio Mio
Fair handicapper on Flat (stays 1¼m) for David Loughnane. New stable went to £8,500 to acquire him in August. Hurdle debut.
11-2Kevin BroganGary Hanmerlocked25/111/156
1891 Bertie's Bandana
Looked more of a longer-term prospect in a bumper and novice hurdle last season. Likely best watched.
11-4Jonjo O'Neill JrJonjo O'Neilllocked50/140/120
863 Separate Ways
€15,000 3-y-o, Darsi gelding. Half-brother to point winner Chinensis. Dam unraced. Maiden Irish pointer and shaped like a stayer on hurdles debut in July.
11-4Connor BraceDavid Bracelocked50/122/156

Race 6 Bangor 16:46 Handicap Chase (Class 5) 24f

1195 Glendruid
Well-bred winning pointer who scored over hurdles here in summer of last year and returned from 10-month absence with an encouraging second on chase debut (21f) at Newton Abbot in June. Open to improvement and looks the one to beat. Cheekpieces on first time.
11-12Sam Twiston-DaviesNeil Mulhollandlocked1.88/12/16
1597 Peter's Portrait
Below best form in 4 starts last term and has something to prove on first start for 5 months. Blinkers back on.
11-1Lilly PinchinCharlie Longsdonlocked4.5/14/111
252 Steel Wave
Won 3 times last term and shaped better than distance beaten when second of 4 in handicap chase at Stratford (22.6f, good) 25 days ago. Likely contender off same mark here.
12-0Tabitha WorsleyGary Hanmerlocked6/18.5/142
324 Seemingly So
Likely flattered proximity to winner when second of 4 in handicap chase at Cartmel (25.5f, good) 32 days ago. Can race off same mark, however, and must enter calculations. Visor back on.
12-0Brian HughesL J Morganlocked6.5/16.5/10
1721 Methodtothemadness
Opened account over fences at Hexham in June of last year. Unable to add to that success since but figures off a decent mark and has undergone a wind operation since his last start.
12-0Derek FoxLucinda Russelllocked7/14.5/136
226 Kauto D'Amour
Posted creditable efforts last twice, latest when third of 8 in handicap chase at Hexham (24.2f, good) 22 days ago. Cheekpieces now added and should give another good account.
11-8Thomas WillmottSue Smithlocked7/18/114
1823 Young Wolf
Multiple hurdles/chase winner who can go well fresh but largely disappointed last season and percentage call is to look elsewhere.

Race 7 Bangor 17:16 NH Flat Race (Class 4) 17f

1683 Catuaba
€7,200 3-y-o, £52,000 4-y-o, Jet Away gelding. Dam (h83), unreliable 2m hurdle winner, also 1m winner on Flat. Won sole start in Irish points (Apr 13). Interesting.
11-2James BestCharlie Longsdonlocked2.25/13/133
1104 Mark The Man
Fetched £30,000 after unseating rider at the last in an Irish point and showed plenty when runner-up in a bumper at Newton Abbot on Rules debut 110 days ago. Merits respect.
11-2Jonjo O'Neill JrJonjo O'Neilllocked2.5/110/1300
1727 Trick Of The Tail
Half-brother to 7 winners, including smart hurdler/top-class chaser Dodging Bullets. Made a pleasing start when third over C&D 172 days ago and, with improvement on the cards, he makes plenty of appeal.
11-2Brian HughesDonald McCainlocked2.75/11.25/155
2201 Ajp Kingdom
Mahler gelding. Brother to point winner Constant Friday, and half-brother to fair hurdler/fairly useful chaser Padraig's Joy, stayed 25f. Runner-up on first of 2 starts in Irish points, unplaced last time (Feb 20). Notable Rules newcomer.
11-4Connor BraceFergal O'Brienlocked9/16.5/128
372 Rhodia
Promising debut when runner-up in Down Royal bumper almost a year ago. Hasn't matched that in two subsequent outings but shaped as if better for the run on stable debut at Stratford 37 days ago.
11-4Sean BowenSarah Hollinsheadlocked16/114/113
2495 Sailed Away
8,000 gns 3-y-o, Sea The Moon gelding. Half-brother to 3 winners on Flat, including 5.5f-8.5f winner Walec. Dam 11.4f winner. Made frame sole start in point bumper (Jan 22).
11-2Ciaran GethingsStuart Edmundslocked22/18/164
1658 Buying Money
£8,000 3-y-o, £3,000 4-y-o, Yeats filly. Dam, ran once in bumper, half-sister to smart hurdler (2m winner) Tudor City. Fourth on completed start in point bumpers (Apr 16).
10-9Henry BrookeStella Barclaylocked33/1100/1203
1966 The Spin King
Getaway gelding who was only fifth of 8 in a Huntingdon bumper 6 months ago and looks more of a long-term project.
