Post Eye Catchers
Hi all just a few eye catchers for the weekend.

Oldgrangetown - Dan Skelton - Brought down 4 out in the handicap chase at Aintree when travelling strongly. Jumped nicely for a novice and was just starting to move into a challenging position when he was brought down with no where to go. Only 5yo so has loads of potential and looks like he's got some room in his handicap mark. Handicap mark should be unchanged.

Cultivator - Nicky Henderson - 3rd in the Winter novices hurdle at Sandown on Friday. Ran a nice enough race over a distance that I think was a bit to far for him. Seemed to hit a bit of a flat spot but came back on the bridle and looked dangerous but just got outstayed up the Sandown hill off two horses who were better suited. Even though he hit a flat spot I think a fast ran 2 mile will suit a lot better considering the pace he showed in novice hurdles. Needs decent ground so might not be seen during the winter.

Campeador - Gordon Elliott - Probably the most obvious one of the weekend. Fell at the final hurdle in the Bar One Handicap hurdle at Fairyhouse, held up and traveled really strongly, jumped well bar the final and went wide around the turn and cruised to the front but to dive at the final hurdle and fall. Looks the type for 2 mile handicap hurdles and a strong pace will suit.

Would like to hear your eye catchers.

Thanks Peter.
