Treve couldn’t win the 3rd Arc but she really wasn’t far away. Her chance this year was statistically flawed but with 6 group 1’s and 2 arcs in the bag she really does go down as a wonder filly. Sheik Joann has got an amazing horse to breed from and it will be an exciting wait for the team to see what she produces.
As stated last week here are 5 more horses to follow over the jump season.
BOUVREUIL – Looks a very exciting prospect for PAUL NICHOLLS. We backed this horse for the Fred winter at Cheltenham last year at around 18/1 and he ran a huge race to finish 2nd. The horse has strengthened further this year and could be an exciting prospect.
PEACE AND CO – NICKY HENDERSON. Had hargam behind when landing the triumph hurdle could develop in to a top chaser, he certainly looks the sort, unbeaten over hurdles I can see this horse going on to big things.
THE SAINT JAMES – JONJO O’NEILL. Cost a decent amount of money and showed plenty of promise at Aintree and Cheltenham, should improve again at 5 and could well win a big handicap. Probably was too far over the top at Punchestown latest. May run well fresh so watch for this horse first time up.
DJAKADAM – WILLIE MULLINS. 2nd in the gold cup but we think the horse is better than that. Had a few problems last year but must be a big player if taking his chance in 2016. Only 6 years old last year the experience will have been invaluable. This horse should make the history books.
A PLEIN TEMPS – HARRY FRY. We are looking forward to seeing what this horse can do this season. His sire was a group 1 winner for AIDEN O’BRIAN. Did well in point to points in Ireland and has improved with each. This horse will probably start in a bumper but we can’t wait to see what happens when the horse goes over hurdles. Around 2 and a half miles should be the right trip.
More from us next week.
