From the Horses Mouth – Horses to Follow 2018


We have been publishing interviews with people within the racing industry and this page is dedicated to the horses they have given us to follow….

The Trainers….

Harry Dunlop – Space Talk and Goldino Bello

George Scott – 2-yo colts: Reloaded (Excelebration) & Manguzi (Planteur)

Charlie Fellowes – Jeremiah is a very talented stayer who will get better and better as the season goes on.
We have a two year old called French Montana who looks quite smart and should be out soon after Royal Ascot.
Treasure Me is also a nice filly who ran over too far first time out but wants cut in the ground

Ivan Furtado – Frank’s Legacy is showing improvement day by day, while Murdanova has also progressed and a horse I think highly about. We also have some unnamed 2 year olds and they have also been showing great potential.

David Menuisier– Nuits St Georges, he is a late developer who is starting to get his head around what Life’s all about and should be useful to follow in the next few months. I would also follow Place Des Vosges who has a huge frame to fill out but who should just be going the right way in the next few months when the grounds are getting softer.


Rising Stars

Harrison Shaw – One horse I think would be worth keeping an eye on is Ganton Par. He is a 3 year old gelding by frozen power. He was very green last year and after a winter holiday has come back a much stronger and mature horse, I really like the look of him.

Toby Ely – My horse to follow would be a 2year old Tizwotitiz, I rode him on his first run in the Brockelsby at Doncaster and he ran well.

Eoin Walsh – Jumira Bridge looks like he could be very competitive in the big sprint handicaps for my boss and also Blue De Vega who looked like he’s coming back to his old form with a big run at Newbury last time.

Phillip Dennis – Declan Carroll’s Abel Handy was game to win a group 3 at Newmarket at the end of last season and is a very genuine horse so will be interesting to see if he’s improved and compete in the best sprints this year.

Jonathan Fisher – Cowboy Solider who finished second on his only outing as a two year old and hopefully he can build on that.

Media –

Oil Bell – Jeremiah of Charlie Fellowes’ could win a couple Nice handicaps this season. I know he was beaten when well backed at Chelmsford recently but I’m not sure the race was run to suit. I wouldn’t give up on him quite yet and he’s trained by a very talented young trainer so I’m sure he will get the best out of him.

Lee McKenzie – YOUNG RASCAL is much better than he looked when trailing in a modest seventh behind Masar. Wide and never travelling at Epsom, he had impressed at Newbury and Chester beforehand and should bounce back later in the summer or early autumn when he is more mature.

As more interviews are added, we will add more to follow to the list!
