In depth


A very competitive bumper for this time of year, chances going to many of them but Princess Yum Yum gets the nod. She finished a fine second on her race course debut and with improvement she can win a race of this calibre. But with so many in with chances it has to be a tentative vote. Hills Fort Timmy carries a penalty after his course and distance success. It was a below standard contest that day as this race looks better but is worth noting. The Cliffe showed signs of ability on his debut run and could improve as could Xcentra who finished third last time out. The same can be said for Silver Serg and Show The Hands who has the services of the Champ on board so again is worth noting in the betting market. But for the winner the tentative vote goes to Princess Yum Yum.
