    I think that it goes without saying that Envoi Allen and Malone Road will be top of many a list this year, but there’s a few more I thought worth keeping an eye on.

    Midnight Run – Very hopeful of a big season from him. He didn’t do much wrong last year, and looks as if they’re being patient with him. Even at the tail end of August, I think he looks perfect for The Ballymore, and if I wasn’t as tight with my Anteposts on Novice Hurdlers, I might chance that 25’s with Bet365. Just holding off though (for now), A’s also a chance he could go Albert Bartlett, or indeed go straight to chasing, but he’s one I’ll be following closely.

    Gypsy Island – Very impressive at Punchestown, and obviously an exciting prospect. Prominent in the betting for The Supreme, and that looks the obvious target.

    Andy Dufresne – This boys route is even harder to second guess, but wherever he goes, he should be winning. I’m always cautious with “hype” horses, but I just get the impression he could be the real deal.

    McFabulous – If you ignore that blip at Cheltenham last November, then he’s actually a very promising prospect. Three nice wins to his name, and though very early to be speculating on ground, perhaps he just doesn’t want it too fast. Nothing to suggest yet that he’ll be absolutely top drawer, but I’m in no rush to rule that out either, and he’ll surely be winning his fair share. Interested to see just how far he can rise.

    Colreevy – No match for Gypsy Island at Punchestown, but he had a fine time of it at the tail end of the season himself, and he looks one that could go any route.

    Abacadabras – Acquitted himself without looking proper G1 Material last year. He’s another who could potentially go chasing, but either way, a smart enough prospect.

    Shishkin – Couldn’t have been more impressive at Kempton, and I’d be amazed if he doesn’t end up decent. Another who looks big for The Ballymore, at 33’s.

    Early days I know, but these are the ones who immediately sprung to mind.

    Agree on Shishkin VTC, I think the Donnellys have a few interesting novice hurdlers this year like, The Big Getaway, Tactical Move + Egality Mans. All 3 lost their bumpers, not by far! All being pointers i think a trip is what they’ll need.

    Another i like is Ask For Glory for Nicholls. Haven’t studied much mind you.

    Just to point out Bobby Colreevy is a mare so she’ll probably stick to her own division.

    Blue Sari one to definitely keep onside of also, although nowhere near anything like being ‘dark’.

    End of August and speaking about jumps gives me the fear, November is jumps time B-)

    I don’t think he’ll shake up any of these named horses so far but one in my tracker for novice and handicap hurdles is Old Jeroboam.

    The bare form of his two bumper wins isn’t anything to write home about really, but there’s something a bit sexy about the way he puts his head down and finishes his races. He powered home both times, suggesting the crawl-sprint nature of bumper racing wasn’t seeing him to best effect at all.

    I’d almost like to see him beaten in a few novices around sharp tracks in small fields because I think he’ll be a real weapon in big field handicaps.

    Nice one soldier, that’s the type of dark one I’d be hoping to put up myself, but just struggling for that type this year.

    Good luck with him, and I’ll be keeping an eye out.

    Gypsy Island is also a Mare. Hence, I would have thought the Mares Novice Hurdle would be the target not the Supreme.

    Others of note…
    1) Dlauro
    2) Wide Receiver
    3) Fructine
    4) Chantry House
    5) Festival D’Ex
    6) Asterion Furlonge

    I forgot about Wide Receiver CNC, hopefully he can live up to the price tag.

    Very happy with that run from Abacadabras today, and good to get one on the board early, for all that he was long odds on.

    Old Jeroboam really impressed today, good shout Soldier. He certainly impressed in the finish.

    Welcome to TRF Ray

    Very impressive winner, was effortless, and the faller two out wouldn’t have troubled her.

    Certainly one to take note of, and be interested in how she fares in a stronger race.

    Just got round to watching the McFabulous race from yesterday, and I was quite disappointed with that.

    After the disappointment of McFabulous, much better from Abacadabras and Andy Dufresne.
