Bumper Replay

Review: A late entry to this sale, the Emmet Mullins trained Rocket Lad is offered for sale with an impressive CV.  Having been placed in his Maiden P2P, he was placed third on his Bumper debut at the Punchestown Festival beaten only a length & 3/4 by the winner. Winning on his next start & finishing second he went on to win his second career Bumper at the Galway Festival on Sunday in good style under novice rider Ruth Dudfield. The son of Olden Times looks sure to now progress over obstacles with the Racing Post commenting afterwards 'If all goes well, he could be back here next year looking for a novice chase success'.
