    Four Weeks to go...

    Although It Is not until around October until the cream of National Hunt Chasers grace our Race-courses.

    It will be a sad season without Kauto Star and Tricky Trickster and RIP Witicha Lineman and Exotic Dancer, gracing the paddocks this year but many dates already set In my racing calender.

    Ones I will be following very closely this season:

    Big Bucks will be going for a 4th consecutive World Hurdle at Cheltenham In March.
    Denman In the Lexus and Gold Cup
    Master Minded In the King George 6th Stakes, Boxing Day

    DIAMOND HARRY Quirky horse, goes really well for Timmy Murphy, he’s a lot better than his RSA run, and his Hennessey win, a course like Newbury is Ideal.

    GARDE CHAMPETRE Unlucky in last year’s Festival Cross Country where he was runner up still sets the benchmark in these races. Except him to be own the field in a warm up over hurdles before the first Cheltenham Cross Country.

    JONCOL Top class chaser who could be a King George or Gold Cup horse

    PANDORAMA At his most effective given extreme tests of stamina, distance and ground, The Irish or Aintree Grand National could be possible or even a Gold Cup If the going Is soft enough.

    PEDDLER’S CROSS The most impressive hurdler of last season, I can't see what can beat him over 18 furlongs upwards, serious World Hurdle contender to Big Bucks Will make a serious chaser , looks like a future Gold Cup winner on his form of last season.

    QUOTICA DES POYANS Jockey up-grade Is essential for him to fill his potential, Tough Chaser, excellent hurdler.

    SIZING EUROPE Showed his class over hurdles at Cheltenham with an Impressive win that could only have come about due to Master Minded's wrong footing at the 2nd to last In the Queen Mother Stakes.

    HORSES TO BEWARE

    BIG BUCKS
    HURRICANE RUN
    MIKEAL DE HAUGUNET

    Horses to beware are at such short odds, the risk of big money bets over hurdles Is risky.

    Horse of the Year- Big Buck's - YouTube

    Grand Cruz

    Out run by Big Bucks at Cheltenham when he looked dangerous at the last but struggled on the hill for the run In. Again out run by Big Bucks at Aintree a month later where he struggled with the distance.
    Not to be entirely ruled out though.

    IMPERIAL COMMANDER

    Winner of the Gold Cup 2010 after Kauto Star crashed to the turf at the 4th last. His jumping seems to have Improved since his blunders In the 2009 King George and will no doubt see him lift a crown this season.

    QUEVEGA

    Out-standing mare of her generation. Unfortunately her track record Isn't enough to persuade Champion Irish trainer Willie Mullins to take on supreme stayer Big Buck's next year. Her style to hug to rail has proven to keep her out of trouble with fallers.
    She will be probably aimed at the David Nicholson Hurdle before coming back to Cheltenham.

    WHAT A FRIEND

    What A Friend posted a pair of Grade One victories last season, having scored in the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown in December and ended his campaign with a comfortable success in the Totesport Bowl at Aintree’s Grand National meeting, when he took on the likes of Nacarat and Imperial Commander.
    If he runs the Lexus this season, he will take on Denman who he lost out to In the 2009 Hennessy. Improved greatly since his days of becoming so distracted. Another stable companion of kauto Star.
