Impressive bumper winner Some Article could make his debut over hurdles at Navan early next month.

The Tom Mullins-trained four-year-old bolted up on his racecourse debut in the valuable Goffs Land Rover Bumper at Punchestown and has since being snapped up by leading owner JP McManus.

"We could do with the ground drying up a bit but he's in good order and he's schooled well," said Mullins.

"He's had a small blood problem but he's 100% now and ready to go again. We've just this week been looking for a race for him and he there is a maiden hurdle at Navan on December 8 he could go for.

"We'll see how he gets on and what the weather does between now and then, but that's the way we're looking at the moment."
