Horses To Follow.
Gentle Rivage (Nigel Twiston-Davies)
I think he's a very nice horse.
The Tall Guy (Nigel Twiston Davies)
He won a bumper at Ayr on his only run last year at the
Scottish National meeting and
was fourth in a bumper at Carlisle on his seasonal reappearance..
The Villager (Nigel Twiston-Davies)
He won a bumper at Doncaster last year on decent ground. In
Contrast (Philip Hobbs)
He's trained by Philip Hobbs and is very well thought of.
Joss Naylor (Jonjo O'Neill)
He won a bumper at Chepstow first time out last year
Beau (Nigel Twiston-Davies)
River Trix (Nigel Twiston-Davies)
He's another young horse with ability.
Best Mate (Henrietta Knight)
He's quite an obvious one to follow.
Frantic Tan (Nigel Twiston-Davies)
He won a novice chase last year and then went to Haydock and
impressively in a decent handicap.
Valley Henry (Paul Nicholls)
He's trained by Paul Nicholls, who has started off the season
well again and
has some terrific horses in the yard.
The Bajan Bandit - Len Lungo
Top Class horse.
Blue Royal (Nicky Henderson)
He was off all last season but finished third behind Istabraq in the 2000 Champion Hurdle.
First Ballot (David Elsworth)
He has been running well on the Flat this year – and looked an improved peformer.
Gola Cher (Alan King)
Here is a fine chasing prospect
Young Devereux (Paul Nicholls)
He is a lovely young chaser from a very powerful stable.
DAVIDS LAD (Tony Martin)
Davids Lad was just about the most improved chaser in training
last season when he rounded
off his campaign with three straight wins including the Powers Gold Label Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse.
NED KELLY (Edward O'Grady):
Unbeaten in six starts, Ned Kelly should prove a real force in the top events over hurdles this winter.
SACKVILLE: (Frances Crowley):
Miss Crowley's star began a sequence of eight consecutive
chase wins when
scoring at Cheltenham last November.
TRUCKERS TAVERN (Ferdy Murphy):
Truckers Tavern cost connections 50,000gns at the Doncaster
May Sales and went some way to repaying
that outlay with a very impressive victory in an 11-runner novice hurdle at Wetherby on his debut last October.
FIRST GOLD (Francois Doumen)
An outstanding performance in the King George VI Chase at
Kempton on Boxing Day
marked First Gold out as the top staying chaser in Europe last term.
