Read Paul's weekly update which includes:
- LEADING PROSPECTS read Paul’s thoughts on any Leading Prospects due to run that week, details such as course, ground, opposition etc.
- PREVIOUS WEEK’S REVIEW read Paul’s thoughts on those Leading Prospects who had been in action the previous week, plus any horses who took his eye, those being winners and/or beaten horses.
- PADDOCK NOTES read about the horses who caught Paul’s attention in the paddock, pre-race when on course
- STABLE VISITS often on the road at various stables, Paul will highlight any horses who catch the eye, either in how they move or simply just from a physical perspective. He spent a week on the road prior to last season and his very first update included a full rundown of those who took the eye. It was an update which provided plenty of subsequent success.
RESULTS FROM 2021-2022 ONLINE UPDATES (EXAMPLE ALL FROM THE VERY FIRST UPDATE):
- UPDATE NO.1 (September 2021)
After visiting Dan Skelton’s yard, Paul highlighted Hartur d’Oudairies as an eye-catcher, writing “I would expect him to be sent straight over hurdles in the coming weeks.” – he made an impressive winning hurdling debut at Warwick in November.
After visiting Jamie Snowden’s yard, Paul wrote “On looks, the one who stood out was Super Survivor, who was partnered in second lot by Lucy Snowden (trainer’s wife). A five-year-old by Shantou, he was beaten by a head in a maiden in May and cost his current connections £115,000. Off the bridle some way out, he responded gamely and looks a stayer in the making, so might want a trip in novice hurdles.” Super Survivor didn’t run until February, but won twice from three starts (4-1 on debut).
And, after visiting Paul Nicholls, Paul wrote “Finally, one more name to note is Iceo, who hadn’t actually arrived in the yard the day I was there, but has been bought by Nicholls on the back of an impressive debut success at Dieppe in August. A three-year-old by Coastal Path, he adds further weight to what already looks to be a strong juvenile hurdle team. His jumping was particularly good, whilst also leaving the impression that he would relish a more strongly-run race. He is another to monitor closely upon his arrival in Britain.” Iceo won by 17 lengths on his British debut at Kempton (9-4F).
Finally, as for an eye-catcher during that first update, Paul wrote “Although One True King clearly failed to run to form, the race might still work out and Lucinda Russell’s Corach Rambler kept on well to take third, over what was clearly an inadequate trip. Twice a winner over 3m in novice hurdle company last season (on much softer ground), Russell actually selected him as her horse to follow (for the aforementioned video series), when I caught up with her on course, the previous day. The seven-year-old son of Jeremy is one to monitor through the winter months, once upped in distance, with his trainer even stating that she hoped that he could make up into a Scottish National horse of the future.” Corach Rambler won his next two starts and then won the Ultima at the Cheltenham Festival (10-1).
