The first race of the season at Cheltenham is the Class 2 Ballymore Novices' Hurdle and the horse we like the look of the five year old Camprond for the inform Philip Hobbs.
The French flat recruit has took to jumping well so far in his career, breaking his maiden at the third attempt back in March.
He took a major step forward when coming second in a deep handicap hurdle at the Aintree Grand National meeting before an impressive third in the Swinton Hurdle at Haydock.
The gelding was kept busy over the summer and dropped back markedly in grade, winning a novice event with ease, which saw him then go off favourite for the Summer Hurdle at Market Rasen but he couldn’t defy a mark of 134 and finished fourth.
A second at Stratford behind a progressive type saw him step up in trip last time out in the Grade Two Persian War Novices' Hurdle, where he bolted up by five lengths.
That was the best performance of his career and having enjoyed the trip last time out this looks right up his street.
