Fergal O'Brien

    Another personal best is on the cards for trainer Fergal O'Brien again this season, and he reflects on near to hand targets he's selected for his talented string

  • Stable Tours

FERGAL O’BRIEN could quite rightly pinch himself when he looks at his statistics for this season as he has already notched up 38 winners and £361,516 in prize money and is well on the way to passing his personal best of 60 winners and £611,366 in prize money for the 2016-17 season.

The occupant of the Upper Yard in Grange Hill Farm in Naunton is becoming a regular collector of the “Big Saturdays” race, and Chase The Spud was successful in a 30k plus handicap chase at Haydock last weekend which nicely topped up a win for Perfect Candidate in the Grade 3 BetVictor.com Handicap Chase at Cheltenham seven days earlier.

O’Brien is also making healthy inroads into graded condition company too and took the Grade 2 West Yorkshire Hurdle at Wetherby at the beginning of November with Colin’s Sister and the Grade 2 Persian War Novices’ Hurdle at Chepstow in October with Poetic Rhythm.

Colin’s Sister is in the mix for the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury this weekend and all in all it looks like there are further big days for his team at Naunton as the season progress.

Fergal said: “What has been lovely is that most of the horses have been finishing in the first four and once you are getting in the winner’s enclosure you are doing ok. They have been running consistently well and we have a happy team of horses and staff – long may it last.”

O’Brien kindly spoke to Tony Elves of attheraces.com about those he hopes can continue to prosper this season.

  • 4 b g Alfora – Kahlua Cove
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

He is a nice bumper horse owned by Oscar Singh and he work wells. He should be running in the next month of so.

Alvarado (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of eight of his 32 starts and currently rated 130 over fences. Finished third, beaten four and a quarter lengths, to Gingili on his reappearance in a handicap chase at Exeter (3m) in October off his current mark.

Trainer Says:

He is in good form and ran a blinder first time out for us at Exeter. The ground was too soft for him at Haydock last weekend and he could go to Doncaster or we could go to the Becher Chase at Aintree. If he got into it we could look at the Grand National but the Scottish National is more likely.

Aye Aye Charlie

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 6 starts. Finished third, beaten eight and three quarter lengths, to On The Blind Side on his hurdling bow at Aintree (2m 4f) in October.

Trainer Says:

He won a bumper last year and ran well really well first time out over hurdles at Aintree. He was unlucky to fall the other day at Cheltenham when not beaten at the time and just lost his footing after jumping the hurdle really well. He will go somewhere in and around Christmas and see how we go.

Trainer Says:

He ran well first time out at Exeter and just got stuck in the ground a little bit. I haven’t really got a plan for him we will just put him in a novice chase somewhere.

Trainer Says:

He is another who has joined us this season and he will go hunter chasing.

Belle Amis

Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

She is a four-year-old Black Sam Bellamy filly who is just starting to work really well and could run in a couple of weeks time at Wetherby.

Bells 'N' Banjos (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of five of his 18 starts and currently rated 133 over fences. Finished fifth, beaten 13 ½ lengths, to Cogry on his reappearance at Cheltenham (3m 1f) in October off his current mark.

Trainer Says:

He won two races for us at Leicester last season and wasn’t disgraced at Cheltenham in the four miler. He went back to Cheltenham on his reappearance and ran fifth to Cogry. There is a big race in him somewhere and something like the Scottish National. The ground is important to him as he wants good ground and a long trip.

Trainer Says:

He is a real lovely horse who won his first bumper last year. He struggled a bit with his penalty but ran very well first time out over hurdle at Wincanton in October and was second to White Moon. He wasn’t disgraced at Bangor where the track was probably a bit sharp and he was going on again at the end.

Benny's Bridge (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of his only start in a bumper at Market Rasen last Thursday.

Trainer Says:

He had his first run at Market Rasen last Thursday and it couldn’t have worked out better for his new syndicate as he ran out a good winner of his bumper. We will look for a similar event in due course and he is a horse who should progress nicely.

Blue Comet

Form Profile:

Winner of three of his 10 starts and currently rated 132 over hurdles. Completed a hat trick (all at Market Rasen) when beating Waltz Darling over 2m 7f off a mark of 122 in October.

Trainer Says:

He has been a real star for us and has never been out of the first three or four and has won his last three on the bounce over hurdles. He probably doesn’t like the real wet ground so we will give him a break and bring him back in the early Spring on the better ground and go novice chasing.

Blue Merlin

He is a lovely horse and he goes very well. He ran in a decent bumper at Southwell and probably just needs another run. He won’t handle the depth of Winter ground and will have a little break then.

Cap Soleil (FR)

Form Profile:

Winner of her four starts to date. Successful in bumpers at Newbury, Cheltenham and Sandown (listed) last season and made the perfect start to her hurdling career at Newbury (2m 1/2f) in November when beating Countister seven lengths.

Trainer Says:

She came out of her Newbury run fine and seems in good order in herself. She will go back to Newbury on Saturday.

Chase The Spud

Form Profile:

Winner of five of his 20 starts and currently rated 139 over fences. Ended last season with a length and a half victory from Mysteree in the Midland Grand National at Uttoxeter (4m 1 1/2f) in March off a mark of 130. Made a winning reappearance off his current mark at Haydock (3m 1 1/2f) last Saturday when beating Robinsfirth six lengths.

Trainer Says:

He won the Midlands National for us last year and made a very pleasing reappearance at Haydock on Saturday when beating Robinsfirth six lengths. The plan would be the Welsh National.

He has run very well for us in his first two runs and the handicapper has been very unkind and put him up 13lb for two seconds. He is not giving him much of a chance but we will see how we go with him.

Trainer Says:

She ran at Fakenham last week and it was a little bit disappointing as it looked like she won the race when she had the favourite beaten and then put in a poor jump at the last. She has been consistent in her last few runs and there is definitely a race for her.

I was delighted with her first time out when she was taking on the boys. We have her in a mares race at Kempton but we are more likely to go for the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury.

Cuddles Mcgraw (IRE)

Form Profile:

Unplaced on his debut in a bumper at Newbury in November.

Trainer Says:

He ran very well in his first bumper at Newbury and it was probably a big ask for him as he’s a four-year-old who is massive and will make a three mile chaser. He ran a bit free that day but we were very happy with him.

Grageelagh Girl (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of one of her 3 starts. Finished runner-up, beaten three and a quarter lengths, to Posh Trish in a listed Bumper at Cheltenham this month.

Trainer Says:

I have been delighted with her – she won first time out for us and then had the race taken off her after finishing first past the post at Aintree. She ran a blinder at Cheltenham on ground which she probably wouldn’t have liked and she could possibly go for a listed mares bumper at Huntingdon.

Herecomestheboom (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of his only bumper at Cheltenham in October.

Trainer Says:

He was very impressive in his first run for us at Cheltenham and the plan would be to possibly go to Ascot on December 22.

Imperial Elixir (IRE)

Form Profile:

Unplaced in a bumper at Sedgefield in October.

Trainer Says:

He came to us last year and we never got a run into him but he was disappointing on his first run for us at Sedgefield as we thought he would go close. We have got him back and had a look at him and there wasn’t a whole lot wrong and he will improve for the experience.

She has been a phenomenal mare and won the Royal Artillery Gold Cup and the Grand Military Gold Cup and is the only mare to do that in the same year. She didn’t start off great last year but ran ok at Sedgefield and then was disappointing when unseating at Fontwell but she came back and had a fracture to her pelvis. She had all last year off and came back and won first time up at Uttoxeter which delighted us.
