The jumps season is about to get started and the AccaDoo Racing experts have put together a tidy list of five chasers to follow 2018-19.
Make the best of these tips with one of our exclusive free bet offers.
Five chasers to follow 2018-19: 1. Caribean Boy
We start our five chasers to follow 2018-19 list with a relatively unknown quantity.
Caribean Boy is a French-bred four-year-old that was snapped up by powerful connections in May for just under 200,000 Euros.
This son of Myboycharlie won a valuable hurdle at Auteuil last October and looked good in a few runs at the back end of last season.
He was also second in a Listed hurdle and is now with Nicky Henderson.
A novice chase campaign awaits and rumours are he has schooled well.
Five chasers to follow 2018-19: 2. Samcro
The second pick in our five chasers to follow 2018-19 comes with a big caveat.
Samcro was the top novice hurdler last season, winning the Grade 1 Ballymore Novice Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.
Though he looks every inch a chaser, connections may well keep him over hurdles.
However, should he go over the big obstacles he will be something to behold.
This scopey individual has the pace to compete over minimum trips but will surely be a Gold Cup runner one day.
Five chasers to follow 2018-19: 3. Native River
The reigning Gold Cup winner is the next choice on our five chasers to follow 2018-19.
Colin Tizzard’s stable star is only eight and connections have worked out how best to run him.
He will have a light campaign aimed at landing a repeat at Cheltenham in March.
However, his style of running from the front makes him hard to beat even when not fully fit.
It will take a good one to stop him this season.
Five chasers to follow 2018-19: 4. The Storyteller
The next one on our five chasers to follow 2018-19 list is The Storyteller.
This one is a seven-year-old trained by Gordon Elliott.
A very decent novice chaser last season, The Storyteller won a valuable handicap at the Cheltenham Festival and landed a Grade 1 at the Punchestown Festival.
That marked him out as very good and we can’t wait to see him mix it at the top level this campaign.
We reckon a tilt at the Ryanair Chase at this season’s Cheltneham Festival will be the ultimate aim.
Five chasers to follow 2018-19: 5. Great Field
The final pick in our five chasers to follow 2018-19 is also trained in Ireland.
Great Field has proven a tricky one to handle for Willie Mullins, but when he’s good he’s very good.
This one ran up a sequence of four wins on the bounce as a novice in 2017.
That included winning a Listed race by 32 lengths and a Grade 1 by 11 lengths.
He was off for a year after that with injury. However, he returned at Navan in March and won a Grade 2 easily.
The talent is still there and if Mullins can keep this one fit he is one to watch.
