Jodie writes:

“Last year’s publication was more successful than I ever could have imagined, and the feedback was overwhelmingly generous.

Horses included were the likes of Champion Bumper winner Envoi Allen, Aintree Grade 2 Bumper winner The Glancing Queen, the hugely exciting Malone Road, Listed winner Eden Du Houx and Ballymore Hurdle third-placed Bright Forecast.

The Jumps season always means there are a whole host of new potential stars about to break onto the racing scene, many of which will descend from the point-to-point ranks.

Last season I produced my first book – entitled The Point-To-Point Recruits 2018/19 – and following on from its huge success I am excited to announce I am currently in the process of writing my second edition!

Last year’s publication was more successful than I ever could have imagined, and the feedback was overwhelmingly generous. Horses included were the likes of Champion Bumper winner Envoi Allen, Aintree Grade 2 Bumper winner The Glancing Queen, the hugely exciting Malone Road, Listed winner Eden Du Houx and Ballymore Hurdle third placed Bright Forecast.

The progress for this season’s book is going well and I am really pleased with the horses I have unearthed, so far. I aim to target around 80 horses, all of which have shown sufficient promise between the flags to suggest they will have a fruitful career under Rules for their new connections.

There are a few obvious ones who went for sale-topping figures, but I have also dug out some dark ones who never went through the ring and others which ran eye-catching without winning.

The vast majority of racing enthusiasts won’t see these horses until they appear on the track, but with this book readers will have an edge and hopefully receive plenty of value.

 

The Point-To-Point Recruits features:

  • 20 horses with ‘Star Potential’ which I believe will do especially well for their new connections
  • A filly trained by Nicky Henderson who fetched a record price at the sales
  • A hugely exciting gelding for Colin Tizzard with the potential to reach Graded level
  • A top prospect with plenty of speed to win bumpers for Fergal O’Brien
  • An eye-catching runner-up of a strong maiden who has joined Tom George for owner Roger Brookhouse.
  • An impressive 10-length winner now in the care of Venetia Williams
  • A well-bred sort who should make an impact for his lower-profile yard

 

Worth remembering:

Irish point-to-points are vital nursery introductions and have paved the way for many of racing’s biggest names including – Denman, Florida Pearl, Best Mate, War Of Attrition and Imperial Commander, whilst most recently One For Arthur, Native River and Samcro have been flying the flag.

 

In previous years Jodie has spotted and written about the early potential of many future stars including – most notably last season – Santini, Blackbow, Posh Trish, On The Blind Side, Carefully Selected and Brewin’Upastorm.

 

How to keep informed:

For an additional £5 (£15 in total) you receive a hard copy, PDF copy and access to a secret web page that lists entries throughout the season.

We are also currently considering another service to accompany this publication -more to follow!
