At the start of the new National Hunt racing season, Jon Vine has written a series of articles highlighting talented jumpers for you to follow over the next six to eight months. The articles looked at the top National Hunt racing yards from across Britain and Ireland, with the selected runners ranging from fresh faced bumper horses, right up to Grade One level chasers.

Here is the full list of our horses to track throughout the 2019/20 National Hunt season. The links to the articles are available for each horses and we'll be updating this page with results as the new jumps season plays out.

Jon's Top Three Horses To Track


Envoi Allen proved a little too tough to pass on the day, but Blue Sari only enhanced his burgeoning reputation with a valiant second-place finish. While Envoi Allen looks a strong staying chaser in the making, Blue Sari has the build of a real speed-ball and I can’t wait to see him jump a hurdle this season. He could take some stopping in next year’s Supreme Novices’ Hurdle.

JANIKA (25/1 to win the Ryanair Chase)

I’m adamant Janika wouldn’t have looked out of place had he taken part in the Ryanair at Cheltenham and that’s the race he could be pointed at this season. However, I see no reason why Henderson’s chaser will not stay three miles when he’s returns and, at the age of just six, it’s safe to say there’s plenty of progression left in Janika’s tank. He could even be a Gold Cup horse.

MINELLA INDO (8/1 to win the RSA Novices' Chase)

The Albert Bartlett is such a long, hard, slog of a race, that it often takes it’s entrants many months to recover. Some are never the same again. Minella Indo, on the other hand, returned to action just six weeks after carrying odds of 50/1 into the winners’ enclosure at Prestbury Park and looked as fresh as a daisy, defeating Allaho and Carefully Selected in the Grade One Irish Daily Mirror Hurdle at Punchestown.

Henry De Bromhead has always been confident his six-year-old would be even better over fences and there are few better trainers at helping horses progress over the larger obstacles. It’s easy to see why Minella Indo is the ante-post favourite for next year’s RSA. He could take some stopping.
