Four Jumps Horses To Follow This Season

FOUR TO FOLLOW

The start of the jumps season is just around the corner and we have looked at four horses we think are worth following for the season with some being well known but others going under the radar.

every year we pick out four horses we believe are either going to have a hugely successful season or are certainly ones to watch as they are making a start to their careers.

Last year we put up some really smart individuals that went on to win Grade One contests including Cheltenham festival victories so lets see who we fancy ahead of the 2019/20 jumps season.

PRINCESS VEGA

The first horse on our radar for next season and we believe to be a really smart filly is the four year old PRINCESS VEGA for trainer Willie Mullins.

This youngster is the first filly out of the six time Mares Hurdle winner at the Cheltenham festival Quevega and she looks a picture of a jumps horse, currently only racing once.

She made her debut back in May at the end of last season at Tramore in a 14 runner Maiden Hurdle where from the outset she illustrated how much ability she has got getting off the mark in good style.

She is set to stay over hurdles as a juvenile and could have a really bright season with her big targets looking like either the Supreme Novices Hurdle at the festival where she is odds of 50/1 or the more serious contender being the Grade 2 Mares Novices Hurdle where she is 33/1.

Mullins has won every renewal of this race since its existence in 2016 with Limini, Let's Dance, Laurina and Eglantine Du Seuil and he will be hoping he can keep that run going with his new prodigy of Quevega.

LOSTINTRANSLATION

A horse that will be more well known to many punters is LOSTINTRANSLATION and this seven year old this season looks Colin Tizzard's big chance for the Gold Cup.

The gelding was ran frequently last season and was muddled about with what distance he is best at and it took until the final race of the season for Tizzard to finally see the light.

The seven year old raced six times throughout the season, putting in some stellar performances at 2 mile 3f to 2 mile 6f with a superb second behind Defi Du Seuil at Cheltenham in the JLT Novices Chase and also a good win in the Dipper Novices Chase earlier in the season at the same track.

However, his final contest of the season was at Aintree on his first step up to 3 miles 1 furlong in the Grade One Novices Chase and this was the race that put him in the 2020 Gold Cup frame.

He lead all the way and when normally he was being outpaced he revelled in the extra trip and put the field to shame including RSA Chase winner Topofthegame.

His prep for the race will have to be different but it showed that the step up in trip bought the best out of him and it would be surprising for him not to go down that route next season.

Lostintranslation is currently a best priced 12/1 for the Cheltenham Gold Cup but may be shorter than that after his first run of the season which is scheduled at Carlisle on November 3rd in the Colin Parker Memorial Intermediate Chase.

JON SNOW

Our third horse to follow for the season is going back into the region of the unknown with JON SNOW for Willie Mullins again, looking like he can have a huge season on his British and Irish debut campaign.

The four year old started his career last season over in France on the flat racing three times, finishing eighth on his debut at Chantilly then using that experience to come a better fourth at Compiegne.

On his final start back in May he got off the mark when stepped up in trip to 1 mile 4f on his first run on good ground and now he will start over hurdles for Mullins.

Off the back of his three runs in France, Rich Ricci bought the gelding like he has done before from France with Benie Des Dieux, Chacun Pour Soi and many more.

Jon Snow is said to be one of the most exciting horses in the yard and is currently 33/1 for the Supreme Novices Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival and that is before he has even jumped a hurdle in his career.

He could turn out to be a very special recruit for the master Irish trainer and we think he will have a huge season.

BRAVEMANSGAME

The final horse on the agenda is BRAVEMANSGAME who is a new recruit for Paul Nicholls and the four year old looks a very respectable newcomer to the sport.

The gelding ran back in March over in Ireland at Lingstown in a point to point and hosed up by seven lengths beating a field of 11 runners, immediately taking to the sport in the three mile event.

From there he was bought for £370,000 at the Cheltenham sales at the festival and was given to 11 time champion trainer Paul Nicholls.

The youngster looks like he will have this season finding his feet and the yard seeing how good he is in bumpers with the Cheltenham festival Champion Bumper a big aim.

He is currently 25/1 to take the spoils in the Grade 1 national hunt flat race and being bought for that amount money gives him automatic respect.
