Which jump horses will you guys be following not talking about the big races like Gold Cup,national but races like the Arkle,RSA
My horses to follow are
Last year was injured but he back this year and while horses like Peddlers Cross will be hard to beat in arkle i think like Hurricane Fly last year he will bounce back to form after the injury he had.
SIR DES CHAMPS
My horse for RSA he looks a horse built for chasing no doubt he be a star this year he flew home at the festival wonder what price he was in running.But a top horse
Won a bumper in Ireland very easy he did it.A very exciting horse he be this year now with Henderson i think he be a horse for the Neptune.
Any horses you guys got.September 28, 2011 at 19:06 #372379sandwith100Member

Worth following Malcolm Jefferson’s horses early in the season up North. I was at Perth last week and his two winners looked great in the paddock. He has a group of young horses who were useful over hurdles and they are going to be better of fences.September 29, 2011 at 22:21 #372486RedRum77Participant

Interested to see how
Court in Motion
Classic bred type of horse with Emma Lavelle. Plenty of toe and showed its bravery in placing behind Bobs Worth in the Spuds Novices Hurdle this March joining the fray effortlessly with two to jump. Just lost its pace a little after the last but still stayed on for an uncontested third first time up the Cheltenham hill.September 30, 2011 at 16:28 #372557thehorsesmouthParticipant

Quito De La Roque looks a starSeptember 30, 2011 at 17:28 #372564
Am sure i saw on racingpost website last week that Court In Motion was out for season.September 30, 2011 at 23:41 #372596EmmyKMember

Houblon Des Obeaux over the winter on mud could be vvvv hard to beat.
Time For Rupert i think will come back with a bang.
don’t think Joncol has shown us all he can do and should have another big one left in him.
Cue Card chasing should be good.

Second Season chasers i will be following closely will be Quito De La Rocque, Finians Rainbow, Time For Rupert and Aiteen Thirtyfree.
An interesting one who i feel has the class, but not realised potential yet is Quel Esprit.
Supreme Novices is anybodys guess at this stage, but if he goes the novice hurdle route – Keys it the one for me.
Court in Motion FYI – Is out injured all season, shame, because on soft ground hes a good horse over 3mOctober 2, 2011 at 18:02 #372762
First Lieutenaint made debut over fences today and won quite cosy when you consider was up against race fit horses.I think he go for arkle as trainer not a RSA fan.October 3, 2011 at 04:07 #372800HurdygurdymanMember

In the chasing department I reckon there will be massive changes. Long Run has come to the fore beaten the likes of Kauto Star and Denman as they come to the end of their carreers but I can’t see him being a long term champion like Kauto was.
Long Run himself has always beeen a bit dodgy and he could very well go off the boil completely and he’s not a horse I would trust to maintain his form at top level.
Captain Chris took some time to get there but get there he did and he’d be my idea of a King George horse. I reckon the race is taylormade for him.
Time For Rupert
As far as the Gold Cup goes I’de be looking to Time For Rupert. He is one of the most impressive young chasers I have seen in a long time. You can forget his flop in the RSA that was down to a lung infection and he was quickly put away for the season once they discovered it.
Time For Rupert is being aimed at the Charlie Hall and I for one won’t be opposing him in fact I’d suggest backing him for the Gold Cup now before he runs.
It will take a very good horse to lower his colours and definitely one to follow for the season.
This fellow gallops for fun and if ever a horse was made for fencing it’s him. He had Brian Gehary scratching his head wondering what he had come up against when he galloped Titan De Sarti into the ground at Newbury. He was no match for Spirit Son but that is hardly surprisng for a horse who has chaser written all over him. PN immediately put him away for the season to give him time to hill out his huge frame. Big things are expected from him this coming season and he’ll be on a lot of short lists as one to follow.
had a few tough races last season but he’s one tough charachter and looks one to follow in handicap chases this season. He’s nothing flash but Davy Russell was heard to say he’ll improve bundles with an extra year on his back. Perhaps the Hennessy could be on the cards if Dessie Hughes has him far enough forward but one to follow nonetheless.
Rumour has it he has been going the right way since joining Alan King. He was picked up after finiinshing a promising 2nd at Clairfontainue but I’m hardly the first to come across this indo so I expect he’ll have the bookies running for cover as soon as he is entered up.
Get Me Out Of Here
Somehwat contravesial bit of training last season but that’s just the name of the game. Nowhere to go over hurdles rumour has it Jonjo will give him another go at schooling fences. Apparantly his attempts to get him to jump last year were near catastrophic but forewarned they have more time to work on him this time round. More hopeful than confident but he;d be alive hope for the Arkle if he jumps.
Hurricane Fly ?
Yeah right!!! Only decent bet you’ll get on him is to remain undefeated for the entire season.
Is a hurdler well worth a mention and my number one choice of horses to follow. A Nicky Henderson trained import who you can understimate at your peril. He had the distinct look of a horse who will improve an awful lot with another year on his back and may well be the yards biggest hope for top honours at Cheltenham this coming season.October 3, 2011 at 04:58 #372802barryboy165Member

MART LANE, a winner of a maiden hurdle at Perth recently, is likely to make his mark in much better class and is rated a Cheltenham prospect by his trainer ‘Shark’ Hanlon. From the same stable it’s worth noting HIDDEN CYCLONE, a very useful novice hurdler last season, who is rated a Gold Cup prospect on the long term by his trainer.
Nearer to home I’m looking for Linda Perratt’s ANITOPIA to make a mark over jumps. This huge beast made a mark in bumpers in the spring and is an interesting prospect over jumps.

i think the horse to follow this season is master minded. think that will be the earner in the ten to follow. then again, thats hardly a tip. i had a quick look through some trainers websites to see their horses, noticed paul nicholls has a lot of the howard johnson horses with him now. will be interesting to see how he gets on with tidal bay.
