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 […]

Cheltenham Festival Part IV – Championship Chases

2017-07-15T12:00:13+01:00February 12th, 2016|

In this part we have looked at the Championship Chase races of the Queen Mother Champion Chase, The Ryanair Chase and the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Cheltenham Festival Preview Part I – Novice Hurdles

With just over a month to go, it’s time we went through the feature races in depth analysing which horses are probably going to have a say in the finishes of these races. In the first part we are going to look at the Novice Hurdles at the Cheltenham Festival.

Supreme Novices Hurdle

The Supreme Novices Hurdle currently has a short priced favourite in Min for Willie Mullins and Mr Rich Ricci. Having won this race for the last 3 years with Champagne Fever, Vautour and Douvan anything that proved to be their number 1 for this race was going to be a short priced however his form has looked very strong.
