Have your say

Here is the latest list of horses who have caught they eye and are well worth following. Recent winners from previous lists include CHRIS PEA GREEN (12/1), OUR CONOR (100/30), CHAMPAGNE FEVER (2/1) and MELODIC RENDEZVOUS (5/4).

BLACKMAIL (WON, Leopardstown Jan 29)

Somebody spotted something when this horse finished second in the Boxing Day Bumper at Leopardstown. For the winner, Moyle Park, was subsequently bought for a whopping £250,000 and sent to be trained by Willie Mullins. The very next day, the form was franked in no uncertain style by Tony Martin’s five-year-old, who made all under a very polished ride by Ross McNamara. He never came off the bridle in a deeply impressive display that left Martin in no doubt that he’s good enough to go for the Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival.
