Week 16

05/07- I've gone for one who I backed at this years festival and was perhaps fortunate to have won on, with a peach of a ride from Rachel Blackmore winning the bumper on Sir Gerhard over Kilcruit in second. That form was since reversed at the Punchestown Festival but I see them ending up in different races next year anyway. Kilcruit I think has the Ballymore as his main aim at this point, with SG aiming towards the Supreme, which is where I'm going to back him. That reverse of festival form is the only loss so far for SG, he has course form at Cheltenham which I think can be important and of the horses that look likely to go at this early stage, he has the best form by a long way. There may be a few that improve for hurdles and I will monitor throughout the months leading up to it, but at 13/2 SG will be much shorter if he starts winning over hurdles.
