Paul Ferguson's Jumpers To Follow 2023-2024 ONLINE UPDATES
Restricted to the first 200 subscribers, receive Paul’s weekly update (via email), detailing horses from the book who have run or who hold entries/declarations, as well as eye-catchers, paddock notes and much more. Published from early-October right through to the end of the National Hunt season, Paul analysis is invaluable.
Examples from last year's online updates:
The very first update of the season – which is often the longest, as it includes Paul’s thoughts from his many summer stable visits – included the following:
“From there I called into Hull Farm, home of Charlie Longsdon Racing. As highlighted in the book itself, Longsdon looks to have a decent team of novice hurdlers for the upcoming campaign and another to add to the list is Realisation.”
Realisation won a Bangor-on-Dee bumper @ 10-1 on her Rules debut
“The following day I headed to Jackdaws Castle (Jonjo O’Neill), where there is a whole host of young talent. Land Genie is sure to be popular when making it to the track, being a half-brother to Constitution Hill. He is a four-year-old by Flemensfirth.”
Land Genie made a winning debut at Huntingdon, returning @ 9-4
“A couple of weeks later, I spent a full morning with Paul Nicholls, where I was fortunate enough to see the likes of Monmiral and Gelino Bello schooling. One who really impressed with the way he moved was Point-to-Point winner Hermes Allen, who has done very well – physically – since I saw him go through the sales ring at Cheltenham last winter.”
Hermes Allen won his first 3 starts, including the Grade 1 Challow Novices’ Hurdle
“This week I was at Southwell on Tuesday, but the most interesting race of the day was the bumper from Sedgefield, which was won in taking fashion by Gentle Slopes. He was the first runner from the Point-to-Point Graduates section of the book and might well be considered for the Listed bumper at Cheltenham next month.”
Gentle Slopes won that Listed bumper @ 12-1
Update 2 (second week of October) included:
“Elsewhere over the weekend, I was taken with the chasing debut of Banbridge at Gowran Park. The Martin Pipe winner jumped with aplomb….much tougher assignments lie in wait, but this was a pleasing start.”
Banbridge won a Grade 2 next time and ended the season with a Grade 1 win at Aintree
Update 3 (third week of October) included:
“Looking back at last week and starting with Thursday. At Worcester, the opening mares’ novices’ chase looked to be a competitive race and I thought the third home Fairfield Ferrata shaped with plenty of promise and should be found easier opportunities in the same division. The daughter of Kayf Tara is only rated 112 and is certainly one to note next time, if heading into handicap company. She finished third on her hurdling debut a year ago, before getting off the mark at Market Rasen the following month, so it is possible that this reappearance will put her spot on for her second start.”
Fairfield Ferrata won a Fakenham handicap @ 5-2 next time and again at Uttoxeter (9-2)
“I was down at Chepstow for the weekend, but before Friday’s racing I visited the yard of Neil Mulholland…..Another Irish Points winner to note from the yard is Feel Good Inc, who was a final fence faller when holding every chance…..he boasts a good jumping pedigree.”
Feel Good Inc won on hurdling debut at Doncaster @ 9-1 (having been 33-1 overnight)
