I’ll be interested to see Iktitaf taking on the established order in the 2m championship hurdle races, ditto Voy Por Ustedes in the chasing equivalent. Bothar Na – going best of anything in the Munster National before rooting the second last – is my idea of a Thyestes Chase aspirant, and maybe a Festival handicap after that.
Slightly lower down the food chain, I’d love to see Stewart and Monique Pike having a good run over hurdles with Sovietica, who looked alright in bumpers (won two) and looks the sort who could land the EBF Mares’ Final at Newbury come the Spring.
And, of course, I share Ted Caine’s hope that just one of the battery of horses he’s about to campaign now he’s got his permit back turns out to be a decent animal and gives him and Joy a few grand days out post-Quixall.
The patron saint of lower-grade fare. A gently critical friend of point-to-pointing. Kindness is a political act.October 17, 2006 at 13:08 #80156dandanMember

I’ll go for Mister McGoldrick. Can’t imagine any owner has had more fun in the last few years than what this fella has given connections.
If Wetherby don’t give him a race in his honour when the time comes it will be a disgrace.October 17, 2006 at 18:44 #80159LingfieldMember

Hopefully Well Chief will return from injury as good as ever in 2007 and liven up the 2 mile division.October 17, 2006 at 18:53 #80160PerpetualParticipant

A few for me..
Nicanor to make his mark over fences (Arkle please ;) )
As already mentioned, Iktitaf in the top hurdle races & think he’s due out at Punchestown in the next couple of days.
And Black Jack Ketchum. I know he’s blindingly obvious but always start the seaon hoping for a superstar & he’s my one for this year.October 17, 2006 at 19:03 #80161PerpetualParticipant

Also need to add Kauto Star as am very much looking forwad to seeing him regularly because of my investment on him at @ 7/1 to win the BHB Order of Merit.October 17, 2006 at 21:54 #80162GrimesParticipant

Denman, in particular, but I’m very keenly looking forward to the Caulfield Cup, Melbourne Cup, Breeders’ Cup and the King George.October 17, 2006 at 22:51 #80163FlatSeasonLoverMember

I’ll go for one no-one has mentioned – Eurotrek
Seems to have glass legs but wouldn’t like to speculate how good it could be at its best.October 17, 2006 at 23:02 #80164jackane24Member

Yeah quite a few good ‘uns have been mentioned.
My Way De Solzen over fences, Denman over fences, Nicanor over fences – I think Voy Por Ustedes could be an incredibly progressive horse and might just get the Champ Chase, but of course there is BJK as well.October 17, 2006 at 23:13 #80165jillyMember

I’m with Lingfield re Well Chief.Will also be good to see Beef Or Salmon after he’s had his warm up over hurdles,but please keep him in Ireland and don’t even think about another crack at the Gold Cup.
Plus loads of others at Taunton :)October 17, 2006 at 23:30 #80166FlatSeasonLoverMember
