Who to follow over the jumps on Saturday

Horse To Follow - Fussil Raffles - Wincanton

Fussil Raffles looks a serious horse to follow this season and starts his campaign off at Wincanton.

This four year old started his career in two point to point contests winning and placing in them before being bought by Simon Munir and Isaac Souede and sent to Nicky Henderson.

On his first start for the yard at Kempton in the Grade Two Adonis Juvenile Hurdle he bolted up seeing off a strong field of runners and looked a decent recruit.

He then went to the Punchestown festival in the four year old Grade One hurdle and kept his unbeaten record in tact to land the spoils.

He looks a serious athlete that is still very much unexposed and as said before, he will be getting his season up and running at Wincanton in the Grade Two Elite Hurdle on Saturday.

Trainer To Follow - Paul Nicholls - Wincanton

Wincanton has for many seasons been a superb racecourse for Paul Nicholls with it being his local course has been able to send plenty of horses and a lot of them have won nicely.

On Saturday Nicholls has some huge chances in plenty of the races but we want to focus on three of his runners starting with Danse Idol.

This six year old last season had form figures of 12221 winning over course and distance at this track on her hurdles debut and then went on to run well in some strong contests.

She had three seconds on the bounce in Class 1 events two of them coming in soft/heavy conditions and now back down in grade should see her make a big statement on her seasonal debut.

If Say Run comes next for the 11 time champion trainer and this smart mare was a very classy hurdler that impressed highly on her chase debut.

She headed to Worcester and beat a fair field of five with ease and even though this contest is much tougher she should come on a bunch for that experience and give another good account of herself.

The final fancy of the afternoon at the Somerset track from Nicholls' yard is Give Me A Copper who is thought very highly of by his yard and if getting back to his early season form of last year could have a part to play in his race.

Jockey To Follow - Harry Skelton - Aintree

Harry Skelton has been in fine form this season already and we are hoping this can carry on at Aintree this Saturday with some stellar rides.

He has two big fancies from us starting with Diomede Des Mottes and this six year old gelding is a fairly consistent runner that has raced twice already this season winning on his debut at Southwell before a decent fourth last time out when stepped down in trip.

Back up to three miles in soft conditions for this race plays to his strengths and only two pounds higher than his seasonal debut win should see him in the mix.

The other runner Skelton in with a big shout is Roksana and this mare was ultra consistent last season getting better with every run and eventually, although getting some luck, landed the Grade One Mares Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival.

The seven year old looks to have stayed over hurdles for the season and off the back of that Cheltenham win and her second in the Grade One Stayers Hurdle at Aintree she is the one to beat.
