    Has anyone spotted a young horse they think may be a future NH star.

    Has anyone spotted any young horse they think have a big future?

    I have 3 for starters I think may go to the top.

    Binocular N. Henderson’s triumph hope really impressed me in his only run over hurdles. As natural a hurdler as I have seen in a long time and has a real engine. Given time I think he will be a Champion Hurdle contender in the next couple of years.

    Nevertika 7yo trained by Mrs Walton.I first spotted him in a hudle race at haydock and jotted him down as a horse crying out to go chasing.
    He has won 3 out of 3 chases from 2m to 2m4f but the further he goes the horse next season. Entered for the Scottish Grand National but his trainer is unlikely to ask too much of him this season.

    Money Trix. Nicky Richards. The old man loved this family and trained Four Trix back in the nineties. This one could turn out to be even better. He took to fences like a duck to water and looks destined for big things if he stays sound. Misses Cheltenham but could be seen out again this season.

    Anyone have any thoughts on The Old Pretender’s performance the other day in the Group 2 bumper?

    I don’t think there was a lot of confidence behind him, though, of course, it was a significant rise in class. Is it possible he could return such a high speed figure on the heavy, and his speed be so compromised on good to soft?

    Won In The Dark impresses me everytime he runs, very well bred, very game, adaptable, consistent and tough, think he’ll be in the thick of it at cheltenham.

    Binocular for obvious reasons, has the best turn of foot of all the juve novices this year.

    Masterminded, absolutely outclassed the champion chaser, who looked in form, and has left alan king to come up with the excuse of a slow pace for VPUs defeat when it was clearly a good pace and VPU was outtravelled rather than outpaced, the youngest horse in the champ chase, the rightful favorite and the one to beat, says it all.

    Numide – winning races easily and looks like will become a serious force over jumps.

    Carruthers – A lot to like about the way he destroyed Nenuphar Collonges and Souffleur, went from the front at a really serious gallop, showed amazing temperament as he plugged on gamely when clearly tired, a true out and out stayer.

    Dont Push It – now upped in distance since last year, should prove a serious force in 2m4f-3m chases (possibly never be up to kauto and denman, but thats live-with-able), could possibly win the Ryanair, if getting there, really likeable.

    Just a few that spring to mind.

    Is Don’t push it going to run before the festival?

    I thought ‘ZAARITO’ was very impressive over the weeked. It looked like useful bumper and was travelling very well turning for home. 3rd bumper win which is a rare occurence – though many bumper winners dont run that often

    ZARRITO is being trimmed in quite a bit for the champ bumper (close 2nd fav @ general 7-1 and being backed), didnt see the race, and find the champ bumper to be an e/w race on the day but it would seem a few people have been impressed with him.

    Dont know if DPI is due a run before the festival but he has been mentioned a few times as being headed there and has held his betting position in the Ryanair quite well.

    Wouldnt they be better off running DPI in a handicap rather then ruining his mark against horses on level weights.

    It is the festival and the Festival/ryanair chase is now a big one but I would have thought a more suitable target could be sought for a horse who is still merely a novice. Not sure hwta else he could run in though. The grand annual might be a little fast and the Racinpost chase is over 3 miles

    Mad Max, winner of the bumper at Newbury on Saturday, is huge and already looks a staying chaser.

    It’s remarkable that he has had enough speed to win both his bumpers.

    I thought he had quite a hard race on Saturday and perhaps should be put away for now.

    He will be very interesting when he goes over fences.

    Pretty sure that Cork All Star turned up at the festival last year having won three bumpers. Could be a good omen for Zaaaaaaarito.

    My bankers for Cheltenham are Carruthers and Numide.
