I know we’re a few months away from knowing the lay of the land but are there any horses that people are looking forward to seeing go over Hurdles next season?
The main players from the Champion Bumper are usually a good place to start; anyone know if the next Samcro is out there and if so where?July 20, 2018 at 15:33 #1360666thewexfordmanParticipant

Main players from the champion bumper are not usually the place to start. Chances are the winners of the top novice hurdles at the festival’s haven’t seen a racecourse yetJuly 22, 2018 at 17:56 #1360873MarkTTParticipant

Well, recent first and seconds in the Supreme and Neptune had seen a racecourse by now.
A decent bumper horse, something in the Spring. Tornado Flyer at 33s for the Supreme and 25s for the Neptune might look big prices in a few months time.July 22, 2018 at 19:39 #1360876rollotommasiParticipant

As we are in the middle of the flat season are there any flat horses that look potentially useful for the NH sphere ?
Harold Kirk was spotted wandering around the July course last week and Eddie O’Leary was at the Curragh on Derby weekend…they obviously arent sleeping with NH in summer seasonAugust 1, 2018 at 22:25 #1361844Pat123Participant

Good Boy Bobby looked good at Chepstow on Welsh National Day and will be interesting to see where he goes next.August 7, 2018 at 11:43 #1362423FrankieMacParticipant

Danny Kirwan of Paul Nicholls’ looks one to follow.August 9, 2018 at 17:52 #1362567
I’ll be interested to see how Stay Humble gets on at Sligo tonight.
Never been that much of a fan of “summer” horses with a view to Cheltenham, but considering how the likes of Fabulous Saga were campaigned last year, a good run tonight might just put him in the picture for something like The Albert Bartlett. 50-1 Shot for that at the moment.August 9, 2018 at 20:47 #1362578jackh1092Participant

Face the Facts will be an interesting horse for Wylie + Mullins. Bought for 100k he’s a 104 rated flat horse by Nathaniel.
He stayed 2m on the flat, and i’d imagine he’ll need a Neptune or AB trip come March but he’s certainly interesting in a similar mould to Thomas Hobson. According to Gosden’s comments 2miles on the flat was his minimum, so he’s certainly a staying type.
Punchestown bumper winner Commander of Fleet out of Fame + Glory looked very promising. Whilst the form is quite untested (a minor winner or two only) it’s worth noting Petit Mouchoir also won this.
Pakora looked very promising for the Mares Hurdle…..if she can be kept fit- connections had a galway winner name Muthaza a few years back that was all the rage+ fully expected to be top notch, but unfortunately died.
Whilst TWM, recently that’s been true, i would say some of the Mullins bumper runners from this year will be very good, worth remembering he had to restock the year before, + i’d say he could end up with a fair few good ones come out of it.
Hindsight is 20/20 so make the most of it!August 10, 2018 at 12:07 #1362613
I was hoping Pakora would be a Dark Horse for me this season Jack, but cat out of the bag after Galway. The Mares Novice isn’t a race I would normally look at, but must say the 14-1, even now, looks generous.August 11, 2018 at 14:09 #1362804Cheltenham Novice ChaseParticipant

CNC they will be coming with big reps anyway given their prices! Didn’t attend any PTPs last season unfortunately as have had to travel a fair bit, so can’t give a real opinion on any of them!

Really interested in Andy Dufresne from that list, hoping he’ll be decent.August 15, 2018 at 12:38 #1363067botchy1Participant

No idea if he goes hurdling but Dlauro has a big rep. Well he should do by rights, considering connections and price tag.
His PTP win below
Also like Hollowgraphic and Didtheyleaveuoutto from the Bumper horses.August 18, 2018 at 13:48 #1363415
Most interesting horse for me today, is Galvin at Perth. Thankfully he’s unbackable, but I think he has the profile of a horse who connections could have some fun with long term.
