Hughes sweet on Jefferson yard’s King George hope
is the most exciting horse I’m looking forward to riding this season. He was amazing last year, winning the Gold Cup at Cheltenham and, fingers crossed, he will be as good this year as he’s only an eight-year-old. LA BAGUE AU ROI won for me at Newbury on Thursday on her first start over fences. She was a high-class mare over hurdles last year. I really think she can improve from her hurdle form now she is chasing.

Bumper at the Cheltenham
Festival after he had won at the track in November. We thought the world of him but he was disappointing at the Festival. But he came out and won very nicely at Exeter the other day. He’s a really likeable horse and I would like to think he will improve throughout the year. we will decide if he’s going down the Champion
Hurdle route. He just got better and better during last season.
BLACK OP won a Grade One hurdle at Aintree last season and looks a chaser. I’m really looking forward to get going with him over fences. He’s schooled well at home and we are now just waiting for some rain.
IF THE CAP FITS was very good in his novice hurdles, winning three out of three. He runs in the Elite Hurdle at Wincanton today. A really smart horse.
CLAN DES OBEAUX is a very exciting young horse. He goes for the Betfair at Haydock. On the same afternoon POLITOLOGUE runs at Ascot. It will be a tough choice. I won the Tingle Creek on him before Sam (TwistonDavies) took over and ended up winning the Melling
