Nov 18 Hargam had useful form on the level in France when trained by Alain De Royer Dupre and put in a highly promising run on debut over hurdles for Nicky Henderson when a 3/4 length runner-up to Golden Doyen in the Triumph Hurdle Trial at Cheltenham on November 15.

The three-year-old travelled strongly throughout the contest but was a bit slow at a couple of hurdles and got worried out of it close home. It was, however, a highly encouraging effort against a race fit rival who had hurdling experience in what looked a hot contest on paper.

Hargham looks open to significant improvement it will be surprising if he doesn’t turn out to be better than the winner. Given Henderson’s terrific record in the Triumph Hurdle, he must surely be a leading contender for that contest.

Nov 5 The French haven’t claimed the Triumph Hurdle since 2000, and before Bonito du Berlais came along trainer Arnaud Chaille-Chaille hadn’t won a Group 1 in seven years.

His only defeat coming on debut back in April, the son of Trempolino has gone unbeaten since and sits atop the market for Cheltenham’s premier juvenile event.

Three Listed wins, as well as a Grade 2 and a 12l Grade 1 victory in the bag and France could make a big impact at the March showpiece.

Oct 19 Stars Over The Sea made the most of his useful Flat ability to get off to a winning start in the National Hunt sphere at Kempton on October 19.

Stars Over The Sea

Rated 99 on the level for Mark Johnston and now transferred to David Pipe by owner Roger Brookhouse, the 11-8 favourite landed the William Hill In The App Store Juvenile Hurdle by six lengths with his head in his chest.

Stars Over The Sea was given a 33-1 quote for the Triumph Hurdle by William Hill (and 16s by Paddy Power), but was not exactly fluent at most of the obstacles.

Pipe said: "He's not a natural, but he'll get better. We don't normally get going until mid-November, but I wanted to give him some experience. He has got a lot of improvement to make in his jumping and I suppose he'll be out again in a few weeks."

Jul 29 Dermot Weld had to wait until his sixth runner of the 2014 Galway Festival but the king of Ballybrit got on the scoresheet when 3-1 shot Timiyan landed the Pillo Hotel Handicap by five lengths.
