It has certainly been a challenging month for us but one that we sadly all go through from time to time. Winners have been hard to come by yet we are still in a very strong position overall and that has to be a positive.
I say positive because that really is the mind set you need to make it in this game. Do you ever wonder why most people don’t make any money at gambling? Well it’s because of losing periods! Once a losing run starts the natural need for instant gratification takes over and many punters start to panic or to jump ship. They move to another tipster or even worse start playing there own bets with not much real reasoning. We know this, we have all been there!
It took me years to build a pot capable of sustaining my family even over losing periods. However I have complete faith in our selection process and I know that anything given back to the bookmaker in these times is just lent and will be repaid with interest.
Now last week I told you that I would be giving you some horses to follow for the jump season. These horses should be winning plenty of big races between them if of course they stay fit and well.
As a bonus we will also be sharing the names of some sires as their progeny are horses to watch out for.
Do you remember a horse called GEORDIELAND trained by Jamie Osborne? He was placed in 3 Ascot Gold Cups behind the legendary YEATS. Well now he is a sire and is being bred with a number of decent jumping types. The first crop are 2 this year so in the next 2 years we should start seeing them on the race track and believe me, I met one last week and he looked just like his dad! There could well be a special one from that sire! You heard it here first certainly a sire to watch out for in the future.
His sire JOHANN QUATZ (was half-brother to HERNANDO) has produced another horse a filly called BELLA – there should be more races in her as she improves with age, unless of course she is kept for breeding in which case I will be watching out for her progeny in the years to come.
Right here are 5 horses to follow over the jump season. There will be another 5 next week too.
LE MERCUREY – looks a very exciting prospect for PAUL NICHOLLS will go over hurdles this winter but chasing has to be the long term goal could he be another wonder horse for the stable.
HARGAM – NICKY HENDERSON. Could be anything but I expect this horse to be aimed at the triumph hurdle, was superb on the flat and I can only think this horse will make waves over hurdles.
KALKIR – WILLIE MULLINS. Bought out of the same yard as VAUTOUR has only had one spin over hurdles but the form looks very strong and this horse should win decent races.
MONBEG GOLD – JONJO O’NEILL. From the same family as holywell and johns spirit and likely to be even better this winner of the Tallow is definitely a horse to watch out for.
FLECHERS FLYER – HARRY FRY. Will probably start with a novice chase we have this horse around 140 mark over hurdles and we think he will make a better chaser. He should be contesting some of the better 3 mile chases and there is every chance he will win his share.
