    Trainer Kim Bailey’s National Hunt horses to follow

    YARD SUPERSTAR
    “Vinndication is a progressive individual who has won seven races from 10 starts for our yard. We bought him as an unbroken three-year-old and he is now seven. He’s a Grade Two winner and one of his best runs came at the Cheltenham Festival in March, when he finished fourth from a field of 23 in the Grade Three Ultima Handicap Chase. His 2020/21 campaign will start in the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby (31 October), if all goes to plan.”

    MOST EXCITING NEWCOMER
    “Ajero is a five-year-old son of Red Jazz and ran very well at the end of September to finish second in a novices’ hurdle at Huntingdon – just his second-ever start. He did pull rather hard and needs to learn to settle in a race, but he’s an exciting prospect. He finished third in a bumper in Ireland and I think he’s a very good horse.”
