Well the start of the National Hunt season is just about coming, around the corner. This season I have three horses ready this season. Also hopefully might add one more to the string. Then that’s it and ready for an exciting, NH season in any level if it’s Grade one to Class 5 chaser or hurdler.
The three horses I’m, involved with are starting a full NH season and I’m very excited about it. Especially how they done, on there first or second run. Or just turning a corner so there form is getting better and better.
First horse in my string is called Oleg. Who is trained by Champion Trainer Paul Nicholls. He won very well on his UK debut run at Kelso jumping over hurdles very well. He beat a very good Donald McCain horse to win the race. But on his second run at Chepstow he finish 2nd to a very progressive horse who is trained by Harry Whittington. Again Oleg jumped well through out. Now this season he will go over the big fences in the Novice division this season. In which I feel he will improve over them. He is a tall and strong horse and lots of scope going over fences. Plus he will go further distance in his races over fences, I feel as well. He’s a lovely looking Grey as well so keep an eye out on him.
My second horse in my string is a horse called Father John. Who is trained by Nicky Henderson which is based at Severn Barrows at Lambourn. This fella has taken some time and patients, because he is a huge horse. He won very well in his only bumper race at Hexham. It was a great hand and heels ride from Nico de Boinville as well.
Now Father John has won his race, he went away on his break. So he will get time to strengthen up and fill out in his frame, that he has. He is a very exciting horse and he is a chaser in the making because of his scope etc. But in the mean time he will go over hurdles and will start over 2 miles plus. Because he has a lot of stamina in his pedigree. Father John will be a working progress through out this season but also one to follow in the future.
The third and last horse in my string is called Jen’s Boy. Who he is traimed by Nicky Henderson. This lad has turned a massive corner in his early career. Since stepping up in trip, in his races, he has improve no end. Also he’s improve his jumping over hurdles as well. Hoping he will get decent ground in the season he will win more races over hurdles. But I’m sure they will pop him over a fence in time. But at the moment he’s been great over hurdles.
Keep a look out this season with Oleg. He be interesting how he does especially over fences this season. Also how he does in a full NH season with Champion Trainer Paul Nicholls.
