Jamie Snowden

    Lambourn trainer Jamie Snowden has had a fine start to his season and has shown himself adept at taking moderate stock and squeezing notable wins from them, and when he does get a classy recruit he's capable of winning a Cheltenham Festival prize.

JAMIE SNOWDEN has come out of the blocks pretty smartly this jumps season  and with 12 winners from only 67 runners he is entitled to feel that the swingometer is suggesting that his fortunes are on the rise.

Double Measure landed his fourth race in succession when taking the Grade 2 Novices’ Chase at Cheltenham last week and potential stable star Dans Le Vent signalled his intent with a solid second to Colin Tizzard’s Slate House in the Maiden Hurdle at the same meeting. They could both be back there in the months to come and whose to say that one of his fledgling stars couldn’t emulate Present View who provided Snowden with Cheltenham Festival success when winning the two and a half mile novices handicap on the opening day in 2014.

Snowden said: “We have had a great start to the season and the best we have ever had. To be in the top 20 trainers from just a few horses we have run is great news. If we can uncover another Festival winner this time around then that would be the icing on the cake for the season.”

Snowden is almost halfway to his personal best of 25 winners last season and his total prize money of £188,782 for 2016-2017 looks sure to be passed shortly with £107,663 in the coffers already.

Jamie kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about his team for the busy jumps schedule ahead.

Adrrastos (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of three of his 13 starts and rated 132 over fences. Successful in a novices’ handicap chase at Worcester (2m 1/2f) in July when beating Spoilt Rotten four lengths off a mark of 118 and followed up with a ten length defeat of Deauville Dancer at Stratford (2m 1f) in August off a mark of 125.

Trainer Says:

He has done very well for us this Summer and he has won his two novice chases and has gone up in the weights. Unfortunately, he landed in the ditch at Plumpton on his last start and Aidan pulled him up. He likes good ground and he will have a holiday now and come back for one run in the Spring and then go for the two miles and four novices handicap chase on the first day of the Cheltenham Festival.

Trainer Says:

He is a half brother to As De Mee who won at Kelso last week and he has been placed a few times. He hasn’t got his head in front for us yet but when he does he could rattle up a hat trick. Two mile on soft ground is what he needs.

Dans Le Vent (FR)

Form Profile:

Winner of two of his six starts. Finished runner-up, beaten three and a quarter lengths, to Slate House in a maiden hurdle at Cheltenham (2m 1/2f) last week.

Trainer Says:

He was a decent bumper performer last year and finished fifth in the Champion Bumper. He finished third on his first start over hurdles and stepped up on that when finishing second at Cheltenham last week where he just bumped into a very useful horse. He will win his maiden hurdle fairly soon and will improve going up in trip as well. Depending where we are with him he will be a Festival bound horse it will just be a question of whether it is a handicap or a Graded race.

Double Treasure

Form Profile:

Winner of four of his 12 starts and currently rated 127 over fences. Has won his last four starts in chase company and scored by three and a quarter lengths from Two Taffs at Cheltenham (2m 4f) last week.

Trainer Says:

He has now won four on the bounce and won a Class 2 Novice at Cheltenham last weekend. All being well he will be aimed at the BetVictor meeting at Cheltenham next month and is a cracking horse who will stay further. I would like to think he will stay three miles in time and the world is his oyster at the moment.

He arrived with us and had a bit of time off and jumps his hurdles well. He could be a very nice novice hurdler and he will be out in December.

He is a proper staying chaser and he won a handicap hurdle at Exeter in the mud and a handicap chase at Uttoxeter in the mud. He has progressed from that and actually won first time out on only good to soft at Uttoxeter. I would imagine he will be targetted towards those regional nationals that will be his cup of tea.

He is a very talented horse who won his bumper and two novice hurdles. He looked useful over hurdles and I couldn’t wait to go novice chasing with him. Unfortunately his novice chasing career didn’t really take off and he ended up with a leg. He has had a year and a half off and has come back in.
