Six of our Ten To Follow horses have now made their seasonal debuts and 4 have won, with the other two both running well in finishing 2nd. Whilst the quality of the victory from Lostintranslation is perhaps the highlight performance wise, Deyraan De Carjac winning at 16/1 has obviously been the punting highlight so far..
Onwards and upwards, here is a brief review of the runners so far.
A Plus Tard, 2nd over 2 miles, that was a really nice comeback run over a trip shy of his best which sets him up for the season to come.
Clan Des Obeaux, excellent return to action in Ireland when 2nd to the high class Road To Respect. Jumping superbly he was just beaten by match fitness and it looks like all systems go for the King George on Boxing Day.
Deyrann De Carjac, a very impressive 2nd run over fences where he gave his opponents a lesson in jumping. Very slick over his fences he looked to winner a fair way out and stayed on strongly to win with ease at a cracking 16/1.
Ecco, has won both his races over hurdles and looked to be a lot sharper for this initial win last time when accounting for a fair field in the manner of a decent hurdler. It’ll be interesting to see where he runs next, as he does hold an entry in the Greatwood Hurdle at the next Cheltenham meeting. (11th Nov, has now been taken out of the Greatwood Hurdle)
Lostintranslation, an outstanding return to the track when jumping and racing like a top class chaser. He was foot perfect and in giving a couple of nice horses weight and a sound beating, we couldn’t have wished for a better start to the season. The Betfair Chase at Haydock looks to be his next port of call.
Nube Negra, backed up his debut over fences with an empathic victory under the penalty. He looks a natural over fences and has the build to continue to improve. Sure to be stepped up in grade soon, he’ll hopefully develop into a graded chase performer.
Plenty more to look forward to and if you’re not a Premium Member with aracingfirst, why not give us a trial for just £5 for your first month..
