The first youngster that we believe is se for a huge season going over obstacles for the first time is the Willie Mullins trained Jon Snow for owner Rich Ricci.
This 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.
