You have just under 100 hours to finalise your Tote Ten To Follow picks for this ever-accelerating jumps season, with the window closing at 11am on Saturday 13th November. Plenty of time I hear you cry!

Not a bit of it, much like the frantic days approaching the Fantasy Premier League deadline, or if you delve into the plentiful fantasy competitions in American sport, you will know that feeling of perturbed confusion as you bid to shuffle the pack to best advantage.

Not much has changed with this year’s Tote Ten To Follow competition, and as such the usual adage of picking horses to win as many bonus races as possible will hold true. But it’s worth also trying to think outside the box a little with some picks, as other Graded races and higher SP’s carry significant weight too.

Of the 21 bonus races, there are 6 hurdles and 15 chases, so it makes sense to weight your team accordingly, and also don’t try and be too clever and neglect the obvious. There are some fairly obvious non-negotiables, and instead of trying to find wise-guy alternatives, just take the points!

Oh, and don’t even think about trying to solve the Grand National now, or too many of the Aintree races for that matter, as there are two substitutions allowed in March.

Will Smith’s Ten To Follow Selections



Will Smith's Tote Ten To Follow Tips for the 2021/22 Competition

Will Smith's Tote Ten To Follow Tips for the 2021/22 Competition


1. A Plus Tard

Still only a seven-year-old and could improve again – he could easily win the Betfair Chase, Savills Chase and the Irish Gold Cup at the Dublin Racing Festival. He won’t win any races going right-handed, but hopefully there is enough other Grade 1’s for him to mop up.

2. Appreciate It

There won’t be many (if any) 2m novice chasers that can live with him, if he takes to the bigger obstacles, which he is bred and proportioned to very much do so! Should go close to winning the Irish Arkle, Cheltenham Festival Arkle and probably the French, Spanish and any other Arkle going for that matter! There is only one horse that could handle him between 2m and 2m 4f, and that is….

3. Bob O’Linger

Quite simply, this horse is a monster, and will probably be campaigned in all the 2m, but mainly 2m4f races that Appreciate It doesn’t run in, ultimately winning the Marsh Novices’ Chase hard on the bridle. There are also some lovely Grade 1 2m4f novice chases in Ireland that would garner him some valuable points.

4. Honeysuckle

Does she really need explaining?!

5. Kitty’s Light

One of the success stories of last season, mirroring the progress that his young trainer Christian Williams is also making. He has picked up this season where he left off last too. Bonus races like the Ladbrokes Trophy and the Welsh National, along with the Scottish and Midlands Nationals would all be on his radar, and he could easily win a big one at handy price.

6. Minella Indo

Interesting that connections are favouring coming over for the King George, which I wouldn’t be overly in agreement with, but Henry De Bromhead has to keep him and A Plus Tard apart, I guess. Anyhow, he was a cosy and impressive winner of the Cheltenham Gold Cup last season, and all roads will eventually lead there again.

7. Monmiral

Slightly left field here, and flying a little against my earlier advice to ignore Aintree, but he has Aintree Hurdle written all over him. Plus, he could win some big races over hurdles beforehand like the Fighting Fifth, Relkeel Hurdle and National Spirit Hurdle.

8. Ontheropes

One of the main fancies for the Ladbrokes Trophy, and many people seem to be forgetting that he’s actually still a novice this season, with perhaps the National Hunt Chase or even the RSA coming into view come the spring.

9. Shewearsitwell

One pick that could go spectacularly right or disastrously wrong – she met with a setback after a hugely promising novice hurdle season, and would be among the most talented mares in the Willie Mullins camp. There is a good program of Graded races both in Ireland and the UK for mares, and she could easily be good enough to win the Mares Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

10. Shishkin

Having described Bob O’Linger as a ‘monster’, I’m not sure what you call the category above that, but whatever it is, Shishkin is firmly in it. Similar to Honeysuckle, if I’m having to tell you how he will gain you some points, then you’re probably best off saving your money!

Andrew Blair White’s Ten To Follow Selections



Andrew Blair White's Tote Ten To Follow Tips for the 2021/22 Competition

Andrew Blair White's Tote Ten To Follow Tips for the 2021/22 Competition


It has come around to that time of the year where we all look at our Tote Ten To Follow and we dream of constructing the best stable of 10 horses that we can find in this exciting venture. It keeps the juices flowing for everyone throughout the entirety of the jumps season and is a good way of tracking the progression of the horses you have selected. The game works on a points system, with certain races garnering more points than others, so to put it mildly – there can be no prizes for originality with plenty of my stable of 10. This is not a dark horse to follow list by any means, but based on the races these horses are likely to run in, I am hoping that the horses I have selected can serve me well this year.

1. Shishkin

Where to start with this horse? Shishkin looks like one of the potentially best horses we have seen in the last couple of years and has found himself on the rich conveyor belt of brilliant 2 milers from the Henderson stable. Having won the Supreme despite a troubled passage, he was unbeaten over fences last year and added the Arkle to his list of Cheltenham honours. He now seeks his third Festival win in a row with the Champion Chase, and is sure to be campaigned in some of the big 2 mile races throughout the calendar before getting to there. With everything set fair for an excellent campaign once again, and being the leading 2 miler in the division in England, he should be sweeping up plenty of these races.

2. Appreciate It

From one of the best open 2m chasers to one of potentially one of the best novice chasers in this division, Appreciate It looks a brilliant prospect for the season ahead after an all-conquering novice hurdle campaign. Having come second in the Champion Bumper to Ferny Hollow, Appreciate It benefited from the lack of that rival last year to register four wins from four over timber, including a destructive performance in the Supreme. His 18 length victory at Cheltenham was one of the most impressive of the whole week and it puts him in a good position to take high rank in novice chases.

3. Chacun Pour Soi

It wouldn’t be a list made without one of my favourites in the jumps game, the brilliant Chacun Pour Soi. He was absolutely devastating in all of his starts bar the Champion Chase last year, when struggling to get up the Cheltenham hill on that occasion. He returns this year with a point to prove, and his performance at Punchestown showed connections how to ride this horse – as it is his speed in the mid race section that wins him so many of his races, rather than his finishing kick. He is being earmarked with a potential tilt at the Tingle Creek at Sandown, before taking the similar course of Grade 1s at Leopardstown before looking to take on that Cheltenham Hill again come March.

4. Honeysuckle

I don’t think you could make your stable for this competition without including Honeysuckle – who has been nothing short of sensational for the last number of years and remains unbeaten over hurdles. Even though the laws of probability dictate that she will surely lose a race at some stage in her career, it is hard to see it at this juncture of her career. One would have to assume that they will be taking a very similar route to usual, taking in the Hatton’s Grace Hurdle before the Irish Champion and then the Champion itself. She looks to be a clear standard bearer in the 2 mile hurdling division and has to merit a place as a result.

5. Clan Des Obeaux

One of the key knacks of this Tote Ten To Follow is to make sure you’re selecting horses who stand a chance of collecting in the bonus races. Despite Clan Des Obeaux not being likely to take up the engagement of the Cheltenham Festival, the King George and Betway Bowl are brilliant races to target. With this in mind, he should be added to your teams as he has an excellent chance of running well in those two said races. Clan Des Obeaux had another excellent season, culminating in wins at both Aintree and Punchestown – beating the two time Gold Cup winner, Al Boum Photo, in the Punchestown race. He should be able to add to his tally of Grade 1s this season.

6. Delta Work

On similar tracks to the thoughts of Clan Des Obeaux, you have to find horses that might be able to run well in some of these bonus races. Delta Work will be aimed at the Savills Chase and Irish Gold Cup at Leopardstown – both of which are bonus races in this competition. I thought he shaped with considerable promise on his reappearance in Down Royal, when jumping well under Jack Kennedy. However, he does seem to need this jockey to be seen to his best, and I will be hoping that the arm injury for Kennedy is not as bad as first feared when writing this article. Delta Work is a Cheltenham Festival winner and a multiple Grade 1 winner over fences, so therefore warrants a place in the stable.

7. Latest Exhibition

I would like to hope that on Twitter, there is not a bigger fan of Paul Nolan and his horses that isn’t directly connected to these animals than myself. Therefore, after a frustrating year last year – it has been brilliant to see his horses in such good form this year and I am really excited by the return to the smaller obstacles for Latest Exhibition. Having been a superb novice hurdler, he was a good novice chaser last year when bumping into Monkfish on two different occasions. That has prompted a change in plans, and he will be campaigned at Grade 1 hurdle races in Ireland this year, starting off with the Hatton’s Grace at Fairyhouse. I think he will make up into having a massive Stayers Hurdle chance by the end of this season.

8. Mrs Milner

You’re not blinking – you’re getting a double dose of Nolan love on your Tote Ten To Follow! This mare made giant strides last year when landing the Pertemps Final at the Cheltenham Festival in facile fashion for Bryan Cooper. This gutsy little mare is still only young and is improving with every run at the moment. I was taken by her effort on seasonal debut, when winning convincely in a Listed race down at Limerick. That will surely book her spot in plenty of Graded races this year, both in open and mares only company. I wouldn’t be ruling her out in any of these races as I’m firmly of the opinion that we have not seen the best of this horse yet. She is a lovely little horse who is as tough as nails and never gives up. Those are the horses you need to keep onside, and I am going to just that!

9. My Mate Mozzie

One of the more inexperienced on this list and potentially one of the most interesting as a result. I have been a major fan of My Mate Mozzie and after winning his Punchestown bumper in such impressive fashion, he has taken to hurdles like a duck to water. It is rare you see a young horse show such great appetite for jumping, and he is a joy to watch out over his hurdles. He followed up a convincing win in a maiden hurdle by landing for the For Auction at Navan last weekend when beating some decent yardsticks. He now seems destined to run in the Royal Bond, and there is an argument that this horse might well end up being a horse that can run well in some of the big spring novice races down the line.

10. Three Stripe Life

The final selection on this list comes in the shape of Three Stripe Life – who looks like another horse you can add to your trackers for this year, as he could be a very good novice hurdler. Having won his bumper at Navan in impressive fashion, when smashing the smart Outlaw Peter, he went on to finish fourth in the big one at Cheltenham. That was not devoid of promise by any stretch, as he was unruly beforehand and he was quite steamy in the early parts of the race. He came back to the track when winning a maiden hurdle a week ago and looks like he would improve plenty for that effort. His jumping was tidy though and he looks like another horse who is set for the Royal Bond at Fairyhouse. He is an exciting prospect.

Once a regular part of any racing fan’s yearly planner, the rejuvenated Tote Ten-To-Follow is quite simply one of the best ways of keeping a season-long interest in the racing game. The prospect of a huge prize at the end of it is the ideal, but clearly the likelihood is low. So, the monthly prizes of £10,000 to the winner is an excellent incentive.

For a full rundown on how to play and all the relevant information, click here.

There are many different tactics that will be employed, but essentially picking as many big-priced winners of the bonus races is going to catapult you up the leaderboard. Or you could play it safe and go for the high-profile horses who should help you rack up win after win. The choice is yours, but I do think that concentrating on trying to find the winners of the bonus races is a good way to go, as that will also keep you in the hunt for the monthly prizes too. With a smattering of prolific winners alongside too.

The later bonus races like the Aintree, Scottish and Irish Grand Nationals can be thought about when you make any substitutions in the transfer window the week before the Cheltenham Festival.

The final deadline is 11am on Saturday November 14th, and so your horses will begin scoring points from Paddy Power Gold Cup day at Cheltenham onwards. Here are my early thoughts and 15 horses to consider for your final stable of 10.

Tote Ten To Follow Tips

Update 13/11/2020: As always a lot has happened in the 10 days since we published the original draft 15 selections for this season’s Ten To Follow and after reviewing the latest form and injuries we have now selected the final Ten that we hope can give you a good run for your money over the next few months. From the original draft we have now dropped the following horses : Minella Indo, Topofthegame, Easy work, Defi du Seuil, Asterion Forlonge which leaves the WhichBookie/Will Smith Ten To Follow selections as :

  • Abacadabras
  • Clan Des Obeaux
  • Delta Work
  • Envoi Allen
  • Fusil Raffles
  • Honeysuckle
  • Put The Kettle On
  • Shewearsitwell
  • Thyme Hill
  • Thyme White

A reminder that entries must be made by 10am tomorrow November 14th . Good luck.


Abacadabras:

Many will have been disappointed with his seasonal debut, but fear not, he will be a force in all the best 2m hurdles, and pick up valuable points in the Irish Champion Hurdle and Champion Hurdle itself.

Asterion Forlonge:

Given how much ground he conceded in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle last season by jumping markedly right, yet still finished fourth, he must have some engine. There are plenty of good pots over in Ireland on right-handed tracks that he could scoop up.

Clan Des Obeaux:

The two-time winner of the King George might not have it quite all his own way this year, after Cyrname’s romp in the Charlie Hall. But he still has the Betfair Chase, King George and Betway Bowl there as options.

Defi Du Seuil:

Not quite sure what it was that produced such a lifeless run in last season’s Champion Chase, but the Tingle Creek, Champion Chase and Melling Chase could all be at his mercy this time around.

Delta Work:

After his Down Royal reappearance effort, he could go off an inflated price for the Savills Chase and Irish Gold Cup – races he won last year. He can show himself a much better horse than he did in last year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup also.

Easywork:

Chasing home Envoi Allen will have left him as a forgotten horse for many, but he will win some nice races over fences, and presumably be kept apart from Envoi Allen, coming from the same stable of course.

Envoi Allen:

While he won’t be the horse that wins you a monthly or overall prize by setting you aside from the masses, it could be a case of if you didn’t have him in, then you would be conceding a large head-start to many.

Fusil Raffles:

Despite coming from the same stable as likely Arkle winner Shishkin, Fusil Raffles has the option of going over further and he was sneakily very good on the clock when winning at Cheltenham in October.

Honeysuckle:

Quite simply, a high-class winning machine – so while she might not contest that many bonus races, she will surely rack up the points for you.

Minella Indo:

 Similar races apply for Henry De Bromhead’s star chaser as they do for Delta Work, and it’s probably a case of plumping for one of the pair. Minella Indo would look to have more improvement to come.

Put The Kettle On:

Last season’s Arkle winner can progress again, and while she would have bonus point races like the Champion Chase on her agenda, she could pick up a few points in mares’ chases and other open company Grade 1’s.

Shewearsitwell:

She will be prolific in mares’ novice hurdles over in Ireland, and also will have the option of open Grade 1 novice hurdles like the Royal Bond.

Thyme Hill:

Looks set to be a leading player in the staying hurdle division, and was ready to run last weekend at Wetherby so could be about to start picking up points at this early stage of the season too.

Thyme White:

A bit of a flyer here, but he was super impressive at Chepstow in his reappearance and could be a live contender for the Greatwood Hurdle and the Betfair Hurdle (now a bonus point race).

Topofthegame:

Ante-post favourite for the Ladbrokes Trophy, could pick up other bonus point races in the shape of the Cheltenham Gold Cup. While other races like the Cotswold Chase and Denman Chase will be suitable targets for him.

 

Many will be keen on the likes of Al Boum Photo, Epatante, Shishkin, Sire Du Berlais, Galvin, Easysland, Monkfish and one or two others – but they might not be seen all that often, and the transfer window can give you an opportunity to sub them in for their big days, should you so wish.
