Overbury (IRE) – Celine Message (GB)
|Owner:||Leeds Plywood And Doors Ltd|
5yo Grey Gelding bred by Peter Cassidy, he has good size and is a nice stamp by a leading NH sire Overbury (10-12f performer) whose star offspring (2m-2m4f) include: Clondaw Warrior, Missed That, Ballyfitz and recent Morebattle Hurdle winner at Kelso Cyrus Darius.
The Dam, Celine Message, is by St Leger winner Silver Patriarch who will add some stamina to the pedigree. Bluefortytwo is the second product out of the dam who was unraced herself but a half- sister to Bumper and Hurdle winner (2m) Bypharbeanri, 7f-1m flat and Hurdle winner Queens Consul and 2m Hurdle winner Lazuli Moon.
A recent purchase from the Tattersalls Cheltenham Sales; Bluefortytwo was a close second in a Bumper at Ayr on heavy ground in January 2018 trained by Donald Whillans. He was beaten just a length by the August 2016 NH sales topper, Idee De Garde. It is evident he prefers heavy ground as he placed fourth at Perth in April on soft going.
