Three Horses From Gigginstown To Watch

1. Samcro

We will start with an obvious one - Samcro, mainly because he is being unfairly criticised recently.

A few rumours went around on Wednesday morning that he was not going to run in the Fighting Fifth at Newcastle on Saturday, gossip that trainer Gordon Elliott has since dismissed and laughed off. However, of late everyone seems to have ruled out Samcro going forward?

After being confirmed to stay over hurdles this season by his trainer instead of switching to fences, it was admittably, a disappointing reappearance for last year's star novice in the WKD Hurdle at Down Royal last month; who was beaten for the first time when standing up to his fences.

Samcro officially lost his unbeaten record at Punchestown when falling in the Irish Champion Hurdle three from the finish back in April, meaning his last win stretches back to Cheltenham in the Ballymore.

But everyone seems to have forgot the immense talent this horse possesses, nicknamed the second coming of Jesus, and the disappointment of losing his seven-race unbeaten record just proves how high his standards are.

Gordon will get him back to his best shortly for sure, making him a serious contender to Buveur D'Air - if not on Saturday, then to his Champion Hurdle crown.

2. Commander Of Fleet

Commander Of Fleet is probably not a horse many know too much about, but from what we have seen, there is an unbelievable amount of potential in this horse.

Three starts; beginning with a win in an Irish point-to-point, he then breezed home in the Land Rover Bumper at Punchestown in April, before making a winning start at the same venue over hurdles a fortnight ago.

The vibes are sky-high with this 4yo, who just after one run over timber in a maiden, is already the favourite to follow in the footsteps of stable companion Samcro, with a success at Cheltenham in the Ballymore Novices Hurdle.

Plenty of raw and natural talent, I bet that we have not seen the true depths of his ability just yet.

3. Monbeg Notorious

Monbeg Notorious is entered for this weekend's Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury, so we could see our third and final Gigginstown horse to follow selection very shortly.

A son of Milan, he progressed into an almighty stayer last season, winning three races on the bounce, before a creditable run in the Irish Grand National.

The 7yo then went onto finish second in the Punchestown Champion Novice Chase, despite being handed a place with all the chaos unfolding at the final fence, he was still staying on powerfully.

Very much ground dependent, it is hard to see him running in the Ladbrokes if the heavens do not open up in time, but a lovely sort who should be kept an eye on.
