Shares now available in possible Betfair Hurdle/Cheltenham horse!


Together with Ali and Sam Stronge, I claimed a horse at Fakenham yesterday called Blu Cavalier and I feel he represents an outstanding ownership opportunity.

He is rated 143, having won three novice hurdles by an aggregate of 40 lengths last spring.  That form is particularly strong, as he beat Dentley De Mee (now rated 129) 18 lengths at Taunton, and Cotswold Way (now rated 131) six lengths at Wincanton, giving him plenty of weight too.

Though beaten 28 lengths on his return/chasing debut at the beginning of last month, that came behind Jerrysback (runner-up in Grade 2 on next start) and a Grade 1 runner-up in Mulcahys Hill.

He was beaten at long odds-on yesterday, but he simply doesn’t go on good ground (he was also beaten at 2-13 in May on his previous start on a sound surface) and, when given his optimum conditions, he is clearly a very talented individual indeed.

The plan…!

I have written to the handicapper this morning regarding a new mark for Blu Cavalier, which I anticipate being around the 138 mark.

Depending on how well he takes his first couple of weeks at Sam and Ali’s, we may look at starting him off in the £50,000 Grade 3 Handicap Hurdle at Ascot on Saturday 19th January.  If not, we’ll wait for the £155,000 Betfair Hurdle at Newbury on Saturday 9th February, entries for which close next week.  He should get into that race with a fair bit to spare and, given it normally takes place on very soft ground, it is an obvious target.

Looking further ahead, he will be entered for the County Hurdle and Martin Pipe at the Festival, but would only go if the ground was good to soft or softer.  If not, I have discussed this morning the idea of sending him out to France, as he would get his ground at Auteuil and there are any amount of opportunities for him there, both in conditions races and in valuable claiming races, which are normally won by 110-120 rated horses, so in which he would be very well favoured at the weights.


5%, 10% and 20% shares are available, with costs as follows:

5% – £475 upfront then £135 a month for six months.

10% – £950 upfront then £250 a month for six months.

20% – £1900 upfront then £475 a month for six months.

* The upfront cost includes entry fees for the Betfair Hurdle and both races at Cheltenham.  Monthly fees are all-inclusive, with the exception of transport to France, which will be taken from prize-money won.

**  The syndicate will run through to the end of June, at which point the horse will be sold unless all syndicate members wish to continue.

This is an exceptional opportunity, but shares will only be on sale until the end of the week, as entries for the Betfair Hurdle close on the 8th and ownership of Blu Cavalier will need to be sorted by then!
