Ballymore Novices Hurdle On The Blind Side

Horse racing - Cheltenham - 17 Nov 15:35

On The Blind Side won nicely for us last time out on stable debut and I'm happy to follow him again here. It's fair to say that he didn't beat too much last time out, however visually I was taken with what I saw. He travelled like a class horse, swept to the front and found a bit more when challenged. That was over 20 furlongs so the 21 furlongs at this testing track will bring heaps of improvement, as will the experience.

Prior to that he was an impressive winner of a point-to-point, a race in which the 2nd, 6th, 7th & 9th all won since and the 3rd, 4th, 5th & 8th all placed since. He was then sold for £205,000 and sent to champion trainer Nicky Henderson. That PTP win in combination with his rules win on debut for Henderson confirms this unbeaten horse is a nice type and one good enough to be winning a race like this too.

The fact he's stepping up in class so soon here and going for a good race like this speaks volumes, the trainer must like what he sees. Nicky Henderson also said a few days ago that two runners to follow at this meeting were Dame De Compagnie and On The Blind Side, further proof that he likes this horse. It's a strong race but On The Blind Side is open to any amount of improvement and is worth following again.
