Five chasers to follow 2017/18: #1 Might Bite

Might Bite was a jumping sensation last season.

With three Grade 1 wins under his belt, including the RSA Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, Might Bite was the top staying novice chaser.

This year trainer Nicky Henderson has plotted a route to the top.

The Betfair Chase, King George and Cheltenham Gold Cup are Might Bite’s targets.

It won’t be easy, but Might Bite can mix it with the best and showed his well-being with a pleasing win on his seasonal debut.

Henderson’s eight-year-old looks the one to watch.


Five chasers to follow 2017/18: #2 Finian’s Oscar

Finian’s Oscar has already had a run this year and hacked up by 11 lengths at Chepstow.

He won two Grade 1 races last year and finished second in another which earned him a place in the notebook.

Before his race in October this year, trainer Colin Tizzard was quoted as saying: “He came with a big reputation last year and has fulfilled that in spades. He is a beautiful horse. Robbie Power schooled him and you would have thought he was a handicap chaser.”

His win this year looks like the first of many and makes him one to follow for the coming season.


Five chasers to follow 2017/18: #3 Robin Roe

Robin Roe is a horse to watch from Dan Skelton’s yard.

A 12-length winner first time out over the sticks, he next ran in a Grade 1 where he went off as favourite.

He was travelling powerfully before falling three from home and cracking a bone in his knee.

The yard had to put him away for the winter after that.

But, he looks set for a promising campaign this year back from injury.

Robin Roe is a Grade 1 winner in waiting this year and one to follow.


Five chasers to follow 2017/18: #4 Movewiththetimes

Movewiththetimes won first time out in a national hunt flat race before being sent over the hurdles, where he won again.

A blip in form at Cheltenham was followed by an impressive win at Wincanton before he finished second to Ballyandy, who went on to run well in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at last season’s Cheltenham Festival.

Nicholls was keen to run Movewiththetimes in the same race at the festival and was very optimistic of his chances. Unfortunately Movewiththetimes was injured and had to miss the rest of the season but any sort of progress from last year’s form makes him one to watch over the larger obstacles.


Five chasers to follow 2017/18: #5 Mia’s Storm.

Alan King’s seven-year-old has started this season in flying form, winning a Class 3 chase at Chepstow under hands and heels by three and a quarter lengths.

Mia’s Storm was then upped in grade to run in a Class 1 in what looked like strong company.

She travelled powerfully and jumped cleanly as she powered home to win by 13 lengths on the bridle.

This one is definitely a mare going places.
