Picks­fromthePad­dock.co.uk with their horses to fol­low

Let Right Be Done (6yo)

Trainer: Linda Per­ratt

Last Run: 15th Oc­to­ber With two runs this past month the six year old has been might­ily dis­ap­point­ing. De­spite this how­ever the horse now re­sides on a very at­trac­tive hand­i­cap mark and claimed a vic­tory around this time last year. If you see him set to race over his pre­ferred seven fur­long trip be­fore the sea­son draws to a close make sure you take ad­van­tage of a horse that is bound to be a good price.

Dis­tance: 7f Ground Pref­er­ence: Any

Thyme Hill (4yo)

Trainer: Philip Hobbs

Last Run: 11th Oc­to­ber With just one run to his name the Philip Hobbs trained geld­ing won im­pres­sively on his race­course de­but to win a na­tional hunt flat race at Worces­ter. How good the race is will cer­tainly be up for de­bate but rep­re­sent­ing de­cent con­nec­tions he de­serves a tonne of re­spect. If he goes over hur­dles or re­mains on the flat it won't be an in­con­ve­nience ei­ther way

Castle­town Quary (5yo)

so stick with this promis­ing young­ster. Dis­tance: 2m - 2m4f Ground Pref­er­ence: Any Trainer: Eoin Grif­fin

Last Run: 1st Oc­to­ber Al­though very green and all over the place the geld­ing looked very im­pres­sive to claim a win in his se­cond Na­tional Hunt Flat Race at Roscom­mon. A win­ner by over 6 lengths that day it’s per­haps a bit hard to know just how good the form of that run truly is but with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from top sta­bles such as Gor­don El­liott, Wil­lie Mullins and Noel Meade all in the lineup you have to take some hope that the 15 run­ner race he won could be bet­ter than it per­haps looks on pa­per. It’s rea­son­able to pre­sume he’ll stay on the level and not tackle an ob­sta­cle just yet but this lesser known con­tender could be the horse that puts trainer Eoin Grif­fin on the map. Dis­tance: 2m - 2m4f Ground Pref­er­ence: Any

Proud And Elated (3yo)

Trainer: Joseph O'Brien

Last Run: 12th Oc­to­ber Af­ter an 82 day lay­off she made her re­turn to ac­tion with an en­cour­ag­ing 4th placed fin­ish. Fin­ish­ing well from a wide draw gave an in­di­ca­tion that a step up in trip is likely to be of ben­e­fit and de­spite be­ing an 11 race maiden an­other promis­ing ef­fort should be around the corner es­pe­cially if she con­tin­ues to be cam­paigned on the all-weather this win­ter.

Dis­tance: 1m+ Ground Pref­er­ence: Any

Fi­noah (2yo)

Trainer: Tom Das­combe

Last Run: 6th Oc­to­ber De­spite never tast­ing vic­tory in 9 races to date this young­ster put in an eye­catch­ing ef­fort to fin­ish 5th of 21 run­ners in this years Two Year Old Tro­phy. The like­li­hood is he's not go­ing to be seen again this term but may be one worth not­ing if he con­tin­ues rac­ing next year.

Dis­tance: Any Ground Pref­er­ence: Any
