    A few I’ll be keeping an eye on this year…..

    Galvin – Didn’t quite achieve what I thought he would last year, but I’m not in a rush to ditch him. I think he’s perfect for The National Hunt Chase, and I’ll probably bet him for it if he gets put in the market.

    Midnight Run – Put him up as an early shout for The Ballymore, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see him over a fence either.

    Dallas Des Pictons – I’ve already bet him at 33’s for RSA & JLT, and though his run at Aintree wasn’t that encouraging, I’m happy to judge him on his run in The Martin Pipe.

    Felix Desjy – The Arkle isn’t a race that interests me that much, but I think the 16’s on offer for this boy would be my idea of a decent price right now.

    Midnight Shadow – Didn’t do too much wrong last year, and though I don’t what the plan is for him, I’d love to see him over a fence. Maybe not one for the biggest prizes, but he could surely figure in some of the more recognised races if given a chance.

    Sam Spinner – Still a big price for The Stayers, but by all accounts going chasing. He could be hit or miss over the larger obstacles, but interesting nonetheless.

    Early Doors – Got the better of Dallas Des in The Martin Pipe, and though I’ve not heard anything concrete as to going over fences, at 33’s, he does look big for The National Hunt Chase.

    Master Tommytucker – Travelling really strongly at Chepstow on his Chasing Debut when he took a spill. He picked up a knock from that, and missed the rest of the year, but back in full training, and he could be a dark one. I’ll stick my neck out and say RSA.

    Palmers Hill – Bit of a forgotten horse, but has looked the real deal on more than one occasion, and think he’d cope with fences.

    Carefully Selected – Seemed to arrive a bit late on the scene last term, but he offered plenty of encouragement, and surely already a candidate for RSA/NH Chase.

    Reserve Tank – My idea of a real candidate for The Stayers Hurdle, but I haven’t heard plans. Think he should make decent chaser as well as he looks the part.

    Felix Desjy and Dallas Des Pictons entered up in a decent looking Beginners Chase at Gowran Park on Saturday.

    Should hopefully be a good pointer for the season ahead, should they take up their entry.

    Everything crossed tomorrow for Dallas Des Pictons tomorrow. Obviously unbackable, but I just want to see a nice clear round.

    Well, Dallas got a clear round on Saturday…….just.

    Some hairy moments, and in what was a weak looking race beforehand, he might have been lucky that he was handed it early doors.

    Still, he can only get better, surely, and I’d like to think he’ll be back out soon.

    One horse I forgot to put up was Champagne Classic. Always been a big fan, and he’s due out this weekend. He’s another who looks an obvious candidate for The National Hunt Chase.

    Looking forward to seeing what Reserve Tank can do at Chepstow.

    Not a great start for Reserve Tank, but delighted with Champagne Classic.

    Crazy run from Sam Spinner yesterday at Wetherby, but he got it done eventually.

    Pleased to see confirmation that Midnight Shadow is off over fences, and looking forward to seeing him.

    Less good news for Felix Desjy, who’s had a setback, and might not be out until Christmas, with the option of staying over Hurdles this season.

    I was very happy with Midnight Shadow today at Carlisle, thought he jumped really well.

    Loads to build on, and will have plenty of options.

    He’s quite hard to second guess regarding targets, but I’ve got The Dipper on my radar for him.

    Battleoverdoyen to make his debut tomorrow

    Looked like a chaser in the making last season, if he can jump well could be a force to be reckoned with

    Looks the one to beat tomorrow FF, and a serious prospect, but I’m hoping for a good spin from Galvin to keep him in the frame for The NH Chase.

    I know the trainer thinks BoD is his top prospect with the most potential but Galvin is a year younger so ought to have a good chunk of natural improvement too. His pedigree is really stamina- soaked isn’t it? Got Russell on top tomorrow as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if he wins.

    Mount Pelier was super impressive Ray i thought. Really good, trainer doesn’t know how good, but he said he’ll aim high and find out. Bumper form was good, whilst hurdling didn’t work out completely he finished the season well.

    I don’t know with Galvin, i think tomrorow he’s a bad enough price. Where’s the form that entitles him to be 2-1 vs Cay York at 5-1 ish?

    Samcro very slick over his fences, jumped slightly to the right at a handful of them

    Sam spinner jumped markedly to the right at every fence and made some poor early jumps

    Summerville boy much like he did over hurdles put in 2 or 3 bad jumps

    Very much looking forward to seeing samcro take a step up in grade, if they have sorted out the problems he had last year could be back to his best

    All eyes will be on Champ today, but I’ll be hopeful that Dashel Drasher can be competitive with him.

    I could see him as a Scottish National type this year.

    Happy with how a few of these are going, with a double for Sam, and Reserve Tank getting off the mark.

    I bet Midnight Shadow yesterday, I couldn’t get my head round the 4’s. I thought he would have been a short priced favourite. I was right. Well, until the last.

    I was very underwhelmed by the debut of Galvin, and more of the same today. Alarming drift before the off told its own story, and he faded away. I’m hoping there’s a plan.

    Much better from Dashel Drasher last week. I’ve mentioned it elsewhere, but I can see him as an Scottish National horse.

    Windsor Avenue looked a very promising horse yesterday at Carlisle.
