Cheltenham Festival 2020 – Thursday Review

In this video, Liam has a look at Day 3 of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival. He’s a big fan of one from the Brown Advisory Chase at the Festival. Nothing went right for him and he still ran a great race.

Liam’s Horses To Follow – Day 3 of Cheltenham Festival 2020

Liam was tasked with finding just 1 horse to take out of each race from the Cheltenham Festival. Check out his Horses To Follow from Day 3 of the Cheltenham Festival below. He’ll be looking at them in more depth in upcoming blogs.

Marsh Novices Chase – Saint Sonnet

Saint Sonnet – travelled well in against some good rivals when lacking in experience. He had only made his British debut 16 days ago and is only a 5 year old and arguably will have more improvement to come. He looked to be finding things a bit tough and […]

Betfair Hurdle – Saturday 8th February – Can JP win it again?

National Hunt Horses To Follow 2017-2018 Season!

2017-07-15T11:59:22+01:00May 21st, 2017|

Here are our NATIONAL HUNT HORSES TO FOLLOW for the 2017-2018 season Although the National Hunt Season has drawn to a close, National Hunt racing doesn’t really stop and there are some good prizes over jumps during the summer, although I’m not sure if any of these will be aiming for such prizes. Hopefully we have highlighted horses in this blog post that will be well worth following next season in some of the feature handicaps. Charli Parcs Trained by Nicky Henderson and Owned by Mr J P McManus Charli Parcs is a great starting point as he will split opinions. After winning a Juvenile Hurdle in France he […]

Early Season Eyecatchers!

2017-07-15T11:59:46+01:00December 21st, 2016|

I decided that I wouldn’t include winners in this list otherwise the likes of Altior (Nicky Henderson), Buveur D’Air (Nicky Henderson), Frodon (Paul Nicholls) and Cap Soleil (Fergal O’Brien) would have made the list. I strongly recommend looking out for the last named Mare as I thought she was an incredibly impressive TOP RATED winner on debut!

I therefore have looked for horses that have been beaten and hopefully highlighted some that you have either forgotten about or didn’t see yourself. One For Arthur – 5th in the Becher Chase @ Aintree One For Arthur ran a career best when 5th in the […]
