Horses to follow list 2015

My horses to follow list for the 2015 flat season is headed by

The Grey Gatsby - trained by Kevin Ryan

A 4yo colt who raced 4 times in his first season winning once. In 2014 he raced 7 times and won 2 group 1's including the French Derby and a group 2; in his final race of the season he beat Australia in the QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes (Group 1)at Leopardstown.

His first start in 2015 saw him runner up to Solow in the Dubai Turf Sponsored By DP World (Group 1) (Turf) at Meydan

Horses to follow list No. 2 
Watchable - trained by David O'Meara

Watchable is a 5yo and is still lightly raced. He had one race in 2013 coming 3rd and raced 8 times in 2014, winning the Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund "Bold Lad" Sprint Handicap (Premier Handicap)at the Curragh with a prize of £75,000. There should be plenty more to come from this interesting colt.

 No. 3 

Elm Park - trained by Andrew Balding

This 3yo bay colt was beaten just once from five races in his first season last year. He won the Racing Post Trophy (Group 1) (Entire Colts & Fillies) off a mark of 111 and is the home sides best hope in the Epsom Derby.

 No. 4
Tiggy Wiggy - trained by Richard Hannon

A bay filly with a brilliant turn of foot who won six of her eight races in the first season last year. She ended 2014 with a win in the Connolly's Red Mills Cheveley Park Stakes (Group 1) (Fillies)at Newmarket. she has raced only at 5f and 6f so it will be interesting to see if she has the stamina for the 1000 Guineas. 

 No. 5
John F Kennedy - trained by Aidan O'Brien

This admirable colt won two out of three as a 2yo including the John Deere Juvenile Turf Stakes, a Group 3 at Leopardstown. He rates Ballydoyle's main hope for the Epsom Derby.

 No. 6
Limato - trained by Henry Candy 

Is unbeaten in four starts as a juvenile and could achieve high rank this term.

 No. 7

Free Eagle - trained by Dermot Weld 

Won a Group 3 in Ireland last term and as a lightly raced 4yo colt is expected to put injury troubles behind him and realise his true potential this season. Pat Smullen considers Free Eagle the best he has ridden.

 No. 8
Lightning Moon - trained by Ed Walker

Ed Walker's charge oozes class (he won all 3 starts last season) and is set to mix it with the top sprinters in 2015.

 No. 9
Windsor Park - trained by Dermot Weld

This Cheltenham Festival hurdles winner is an out and out stayer and likely has the Ascot Gold Cup in his sights, having won his two previous starts on the flat.

 No. 10
Able Friend - trained by John Moore

Rated the best miler in the world and has already won two Group 1's at Sha Tin this season.
