Three exciting horses this season set to make their reappearance


The first horse that we have been fond of over the last few seasons and are now looking forward to her going over fences for the first times is Laurina for Willie Mullins.

This star mare has only been beaten once since making her rules debut and that came when giving a disappointing performance in last seasons Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival.

That was the final time she has been seen on a racecourse but in her previous six outings she was immaculate landing contests like the Grade Two Mares Novices Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival and the similar Grade One race at Fairyhouse.

Now going over the bigger obstacles she could be an even better animal and with an entry for this Thursday at Thurles and also on Saturday at Gowran Park in a Beginners Chase she could be a special chaser.

Minella Indo

The next horse that is in the same boat as Laurina and also could be seen again for the first time on Saturday at Gowran Park in his first ever run over fences is Minella Indo for Henry De Bromhead.

The six year old has raced six times during his short career and has not finished outside the top three in his point to point and rules races to date.

Last season on his final two starts he really came to live anding the Grade One Albert Bartlett at the festival at a huge price but then backed that up at the Punchestown festival when landing another classy Grade One.

This horse has been said to be made for chasing and the yard are very excited to see how good he can be with some big targets ahead for the season.

Benie Des Dieux

The final horse to mention that we are excited about seeing in the coming weeks is one of Willie Mullins' stable star with Benie Des Dieux.

This mare has been superb throughout the whole of her career winning Grade One races over both hurdles and fences and showing how versatile she is.

The eight year old will be heading for the Mares Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival again, looking for revenge after her devastating fall at the last when clear of the field.

She has been pinpointed for running at Fairyhouse at the start of December in the Hatton's Grace Hurdle which will be a tough test but she should be in the mix.

This French exploit has hardly put a foot wrong in her career and is a very exciting horse yet to return this season.

When The Fun Stops. Stop.
