Who should be in your stable? National Hunt Tote Ten To Follow tips

We have put forward 10 horses for your Tote for your Ten To Follow stable.

Ten to Follow is back, and National Hunt followers have welcomed it warmly. The concept is simple: pick ten horses for the duration of the Jumps season and score points every time they win races, with certain big pots earning more points and so on. You can read more about that in our Ten to Follow guide here.

Not sure who should go in your stable? Here are 10 horses that you should consider to be part of your team.

Lostintranslation

Lostintranslation is the favourite for the Betfair Chase later this month which is the first bonus race of the season. Hopefully he can win that for a second year in a row before going onto the King George. He disappointed at Kempton year but showed how good he was with his third in the Gold Cup. I’m expecting another big season from Colin Tizzard’s staying chaser. 

Minella Indo

On the Irish side of the sea, I'll go with Minella Indo as another staying chaser for my stable. He should run in the Savills Chase and Irish Gold Cup which are two of the bonus races before Cheltenham. Unlucky not to win the RSA last season, his seasonal reappearance at Wexford couldn’t have been more impressive. 

Envoi Allen

Very obvious choice but impossible to leave Envoi Allen out. An effortless victory on his chasing debut continued his flawless record. He is bound to go off a very short price for all his races, but he will still pick you up plenty of points. A tilt at the Marsh at Cheltenham is the plan at the moment. 

Shishkin

One of the most exciting novice chasers in Britain, Shishkin has to have a place in my stable. The Arkle should be the aim further down the line, which he is currently favourite for. If he takes to fences like many hope, we are in for a treat this season. 

 

Chantry House

Third in the 2020 Supreme was Chantry House, and he should make into a belting chaser over the next few years. The six-year-old should come into his own stepped up in trip this season, he could be another star for Nicky Henderson.

Sire Du Berlais

The staying hurdle division looks wide open this year. The two time Cheltenham Festival winner is now ready for Grade One level. His effort in the Pertemps Final this year would have seen him go very close in the Stayers’ Hurdle. Gordon Elliott’s eight-year-old won at a trip short of his best in the Grade Two Lismullen Hurdle at Navan last weekend, proving his class. He will only get better as the season goes on and he steps back up to three miles. He could be the dominant force in the underwhelming division this season.

Epatante

Epatante hacked up in the Champion Hurdle last season and despite a few interesting newcomers on the scene, Nicky Henderson’s mare can dominate the two mile hurdling division once more. Unbeaten from three starts last season, she proved many wrong when putting in a brilliant display at Cheltenham. 

Altior 

He may be a 10-year-old now, but Altior can prove he's still the best two mile chaser around. He should turn up to the Tingle Creek (bonus race) and hopefully let everyone know he still a force to be reckoned with. He may have lost to Cyrname, but I simply can’t write him off despite his age. He’s dominated this division for years and showed at Newbury that he still retains plenty of his incredible ability. 

Monkfish

Impressive and gutsy winner of the Albert Bartlett last season and he’s bound to make into an exciting staying novice chaser. One of Mullins’ most promising novice chasers, Monkfish can pick up plenty of points in top races this year. 

Honeysuckle

Eight starts and eight wins for Honeysuckle, her most recent when beating Benie Des Dieux at Cheltenham. Another tilt at the Irish Champion Hurdle is the plan, and connections will have to decide whether to go to the Mares’ Hurdle again or try for the Champion Hurdle. Whatever route they choose, she is a horse you want to keep on side.  

Enter your very own stable here, and best of luck!
