Akarita Lights shaped well in an AW bumper at Newcastle on debut and is the type to win races but this represents a very different test and, given his Flat pedigree, he's taken on with PIECEOFTHEACTION, who has won half of his six starts in points and was far from disgraced behind two previous winners on his latest start.

Handles soft and has won half of six starts in points; not disgraced behind two previous winners last time and interesting on debut under rules with Brian Hughes up.

Promise to chase home a previous winner on debut in Tapeta bumper last time and type to improve further; however, has a Flat pedigree so has to be a concern about how he'll handle these conditions at this track.

Ability at a very ordinary level in points and similar story in two outings in bumpers; this isn't a strong race but likely she'll have to raise game to win.

6,000euros half-brother to three winners including Dreadnot (2m/3m hurdle) and Upsanddowns (bumper/2m-2m5f hurdle); trainer has plenty of bumper winners and market to guide on debut.

Big price and soundly beaten for John Weymes in heavy at Wetherby on debut; since joined yard that does well in this type of event so no surprise to see a fair bit better.

£5,000 first foal of a 2m4f hurdle winner and has plenty of stamina in pedigree; yard not noted for bumper winners (1-22 in recent years) but this isn't strong and market to guide.
