100 Horses to Follow Part II

After fabulous feedback on our first ‘100 Horses To Follow’ we have released the next 20 in the the list. A few of these horses will be in action over the coming weeks so make sure you check out the new betting sites available for you to place your winning bets. Enjoy!


CHACUN POUR SOI (FR) 7 b g

This classy ex-Freuch chaser quickly made up for lost time, having been injured soon after joining Willie Mullins, when slamming rivals on his Irish debut in a beginners' chase over two miles at Naas in March. The seven-year-old then took the step into Grade 1 company in his stride when seeing off the top-class Defi Du Seuil in the Ryanair Novice Chase. That was a serious effort and, with another summer on his back, there should be plenty more to come yet and he is a serious Champion Chase prospect. WILLIE MULLINS 


CHAMP (IRE) 7 b g

A dual Grade 1 novice winner in his second season as a hurdler last term, Champ heads into the new campaign as one of the most exciting chase prospects around. The strong-travelling seven-year-old certainly isn't devoid of pace, but he really looked the part when signing off on his first attempt at 3m during Aintree's Grand National meeting. It's as a stayer that he is really expected to shine over fences and, while rising eight, he's got relatively few miles on the clock. It just remains to be seen whether a flat track is his optimum in that sphere, otherwise the world is his oyster this tet in. NICKY HENDERSON 


CHANTRY HOUSE (IRE) 5 br g

In November 2014, Chantry House was purchased from the sales ring for 12,500 euros, but by the time he went through for a third time he'd landed the second of his two starts in points after unseating his rider on his debut. Current connections had to go to £295,000 to secure the son of Yeats on this occasion and noted owner JP McManus placed the gelding with Nicky Henderson. He missed a couple of engagements to kick off his career under rules due to the going but didn't disappoint when found some soft ground at Warwick, coming home a clear winner. One would imagine hurdling is now on the agenda and he's the type to pick up a few races in that discipline, almost certainly at a high level. NICKY HENDERSON


CHRIS'S DREAM (IRE) 7 b g

Although twice finishing well beaten at the major festivals, Chris's Dream has shown flashes of smart form, indeed he started out his 2018-19 season with two wins from three starts, including a Grade 2 at Navan in February. Having bypassed Cheltenham he went to Aintree for the Grade 1 over 3m, but was let down by his usually sound jumping and trailed home a well-beaten fifth of six before again flopping at Punchestown. His optimum trip remains to be seen, but he starts out his season from a mark of 146 and very much appeals as the type to come into his own this term. HENRY DE BROMHEAD


C1EL DE NEIGE (FR) 4 b g

Willie Mullins may have classier horses in his yard, but there are sure to be plenty of opportunities for this one this season. Although winless in three attempts in France, he kept good company and there was much to like about his debut run for the yard, finishing third of 21 from a mark of 132 in the Fred Winter. He wasn't seen again afterwards, presumably as connections wanted to keep his novice status intact for this season, and he could easily rattle up a sequence before working his way into a higher grade. WILLIE MULLINS 


CILAOS EMERY (PR) 7 b g

Cilaos Emery is a horse who hasn't always had things go his way. He is very lightly raced for a seven-year-old and, despite that, his form over hurdles has been extremely good, including a Grade 1 success from a stablemate in the 2017 Champion Novice Hurdle at Punchestown. He was seen only a couple more times over hurdles afterwards before making his chasing debut in early 2019. He took to fences adeptly and finished over six lengths in front of the subsequent Arkle winner but that was to be our only view of him that season. Hopefully he'll be back for this campaign, and while he won't find things easy up against more experienced types, he has the latent ability to land plenty of races if avoiding injury. WILLIE MULLINS 


CITY ISLAND (IRE) 6 b g

Despite a heavy defeat at the Punchestown festival on his final outing, City Island enjoyed a remarkable novice campaign last season. The high point came when defeating the likes of Champ and Bright Forecast in the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham without previously testing himself in Graded company. It was a case of him being ready for a holiday when subsequently flopping and this hardy six-year-old no doubt has what it takes to give Paisley Park et al something to think about in the Stayers' Hurdle division, MARTIN BRASSIL


CLAN DES °BEAUX (FR) 7 b g

Clan Des °beaux finally built on his immense potential last term, progressing into a legitimate top-class staying chaser and putting in a memorable performance when toying with his rivals en route to victory in the King George. The extended 3m2f of the Gold Cup proved too much for him on the softening ground and he was likely over the top when beaten nine lengths by the top-class Kemboy at Aintree, but there's almost certainly more to come from him again this season and the King George will presumably be his main aim, at a track that suits him ideally. Given how his trainer has excelled with numerous Gold Cup horses over the years, keeping them at the top level for multiple seasons, expect him once again to be a major force this term. PAUL NICHOLLS


CONCERTISTA (FR) 5 ch m

Concertista is a truly fascinating mare for this season. She proved to be useful in France on the Flat during 2017 for Christophe Ferland, winning a handicap over 1m2f, but was not then seen over hurdles until making her debut in the Grade 2 mares' novice hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. Not surprisingly sent off a 66-1 chance considering the magnitude of her task, she ran a cracker, finishing second after taking to the new challenge with relish. She wasn't seen after that, presumably to preserve her maiden status, and is already a 10-1 chance for that same Cheltenham race in 2020. It seems inconceivable that she won't have won at least once by this time next year. WILLIE MULLINS


CYRNAME (PR) T b g

It's unlikely that you'll ever see Cyrname on a left-handed track again, as he is proving to be top-class going clockwise. The signs were always there that he was well above average it was just a matter of putting it all together. What makes him so exciting is his racing style; he enjoys making the running and puts in some huge leaps when they are needed. The 2018-19 season didn't start off with a bang but his final two efforts of that campaign reminded everyone what he can do. He started with a 21-length demolition of his rivals from the front off a mark of 150 at Ascot, carrying list 10lb, before a 17-length success in a Grade 1 at the same track, utilising the same bold front-nmning style. Now officially rated 176 (RPR 181), he's sure to have his path laid out going in the direction he prefers, and he'll take a deal of catching wherever he turns up. PAUL NICHOLLS 


DARASSO (FR) 6 br g

Although it was clear he had a smart engine, it seemed as though this ex-French performer could prove tricky to place after his first two outings for Joseph O'Brien last term. However, a decision to switch him back to fences really paid off as he mopped up a couple of Graded events over the minimum distance. That took his chasing record to three from three and this season he could prove a surprise package in the Champion Chase division for JP McManus. He acts on good to soft but excels when the mud is flying. JOSEPH O'BRIEN 


DEPI DU SEUIL (PR) 6 b g

Apart from a spell between November 2017 and November 2018, when he really struggled for some reason, Deft Du Seuil has been a classy performer since joining current connections from France. His juvenile hurdling campaign was exceptional having picked up three Grade ls including the Triumph Hurdle. Then came the lean spell, which coincided with his chasing debut. However, that first defeat over fences was soon forgotten when he won next time from Topofthegame. He was beaten in a small field afterwards, but he picked up his next two, the second of which was the JLT at Cheltenham. His final start before a summer off can be excused as he was dropped to 2m, a trip almost certainly short of his best nowadays, and he is already a leading player for the Ryanair Chase in March, PHILIP HOBBS


DELTA WORK (FR) 6 br g

The impression that the 2018 Pertemps Network Final winner left something on the table when third in the RSA Chase was confirmed in no uncertain terms as he signed off the season in style at Punchestown, cruising to a third Grade 1 success over fences. That came in a hot field, A Plus Tard was well back in third, and his jumping couldn't have been better. He has to rate as a serious Gold Cup contender heading into the new campaign, with such versatility regarding underfoot conditions a serious asset. GORDON ELLIOTT

 

DEPLOY THE GETAWAY (IRE) 4 b g

We've yet to see Deploy The Getaway under rules but if his 20-length demolition of 11 rivals in a four-year-old maiden point at Tallow is anything to go by a race in which only three finished, we'll know a whole lot more about him this time next year. Sent off 3-1 favourite for that event, he was soon in front and steadily drew further and further away, recording an easy success. This all saw him become the joint-third most costly purchase at the Tattersalls Ireland Cheltenham February Sale and he looks set to run for Willie Muffins. There's no doubt he will go the usual route and start off in bumpers, and it'll be interesting to see whether new connections allow the son of Getaway stride on, something his previous trainer suggested he enjoyed doing. WILLIE MULLINS


DICKIE DIVER (IRE) 6 b g

Dickie Diver, second on his rules debut when green behind Lisnagar Oscar at Ffos Las, confirmed himself a smart sort when fourth in a gruelling edition of the Grade 1 Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham in March. However, he was very much a work in progress over hurdles, waiting to embark on a novice chase campaign, and it is this season when the six-year-old ought to really come into his own. His bloodless Irish point success came on deep going, but a sound surface is not a problem either for this dour stayer. NICKY HENDERSON 


DINONS (FR) 6 b g

Dinons is a five-time hurdles winner, including at Cheltenham, and had exc?MPA when pulled up in the Albert Bartlett in March. It didn't take him long to make an impact once switched to fences in the spring, winning on his first two attempts before running below form when last seen at Killarney in June. Ideally suited by a sound surface, expect to see him out in the autumn and he can add further wins in novice events before moving into good-quality handicaps. There are significant prizes to be won with him. GORDON ELLIOTT


DLAURO (FR) 6 b g

Finally, in May of 2019, we got to see this horse who featured as an unraced prospect in this book last year. The reason he was added 12 months ago was the fact he was purchased for a whopping £410,000 by respected connections following one start in points, where he won at Belharhour by six lengths, There was a worrying time during the winter when nothing was seen of the Lauro gelding, but Joseph O'Brien unleashed him at Punchestown, where he was sent off the 2-1 second favourite. Anyone who backed him that day didn't have the slightest moment of concern as he took it up around two furlongs out and stayed on far better than anything else, corning home 11 lengths in front of the second who, along with the third, went on to success in bumpers. The future looks very bright for Dlauro, presumably starting over hurdles this term. JOSEPH O’BRIEN


DOMMAGE POUR TOI (FR) 6 b g

Dornrnage Pour Toi rates a very smart novice chase prospect for the season ahead. Off the mark at the third time of asking when landing a Grade 2 at Fairyhouse in April, springing a bit of a shock in the process, he was snapped up by Gigginstown and headed for a Grade 1 at Punchestown on his final outing. Finishing fifth in what was a deep race, he shaped better than the result and the race looked to be coming soon enough in his career, but it's all about chasing with this six-year-old and he could take high rank. HENRY DE BROMHEAD


DOWNTOWN GETAWAY (IRE) 6 b g

Sold for a massive £350,000 after winning a Fairyhouse bumper for Margaret Mullins, the son of Getaway joined Nicky Henderson to go hurdling, but didn't make his debut until just over a year after the sale. Although beaten at odds-on after making a bad error three out, he still had eight subsequent winners behind him and managed to get off the mark narrowly at Ascot next time despite jumping poorly. Stepped up in both trip and class for his final start at Aintree, he dropped away tamely and ran well below previous form with others in the race. It could be that he did not stay the 3m, but that remains to be seen and he can be expected to be stronger and more streetwise this season. He has the option of switching to fences if he is deemed ready, but he needs soft ground. NICKY HENDERSON


DUC DES GENIEVRES (FR) 6 gr g

Dux Des Genievres went almost two years without a win, but showed himself to be a smart novice hurdler in defeat and the switch to fences last term was always likely to be the malting of this strapping grey. A surprise reversal first time up was initially viewed as a disappointment, but it came at the hands of A Plus Tard. He stormed to festival success in March, not long after this gelding posted an equally impressive Cheltenham victory when running away with the Arkle, jumping like a pro and hammering his rivals. It may not have been the strongest edition of the race and he was a bit disappointing at Punchestown on his final outing in April, but he's very much the type to progress again this term and he ought to prove versatile trip-wise. It would be no surprise to see him end up over intermediate trips as he may be found wanting for pace in the Champion Chase division. WILLIE MULLINS
