The Supreme Horse Racing Club will go into battle this winter with high-class chaser Kemboy leading a strong team.

Kemboy
The successful syndicate currently has close to 30 horses on its books, all of which are trained by Willie Mullins.

Kemboy was very much the star of the show last season, winning three of his six starts over fences including a Grade Three triumph at Limerick and a fine weight carrying performance in a valuable novice handicap chase at the Punchestown Festival.

The six-year-old was also fourth in the JLT Novices’ Chase at Cheltenham in March and with a rating of 157, he is set to be competing at the top level this season.

Steve Massey, racing manager for the owners, said: “Kemboy is in great form. He’s not a big horse, but he summered really well and came back with a big belly on him.

“He was fantastic for us last season. I don’t think any of us could have envisaged he would end up being as good as he is over fences, but he seems to love chasing and with a rating of 157, he’s the highest-rated horse we’ve ever had.

“Given his rating, there aren’t going to be a lot of options for him and he’s going to have to step up another level. As always, Willie will make plans for him. I don’t think he’ll be out before the last week of November or first week of December at the earliest.

“He has his own style of jumping, but seems effective over two and a half and three miles and hopefully it will be another exciting season for his owners.”

Kemboy is a 33-1 shot with bet365 and William Hill for the Ryanair Chase at next year’s Cheltenham Festival and 50-1 with the former firm for the Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup.
