    Jumps Horses to Folllow 2016-17

    A few notable buys here


    Willie Mullins enjoyed great success with progeny of Walk In The Park last season thanks to the likes of Douvan and Min, and it wasn't surprising that Harold Kirk had to go to €165,000 to secure another son of the exciting sire at the second session of the Goffs Land Rover Sale.

    The three-year-old gelding is already named Choungaya, and his grandam was a prolific winner over fences in France. The price surpassed the top figure at this Sale 12 months ago.

    and as yet unnamed

    Among the other six figure sales on the day was a Shantou own brother to Grade 2 winner Wounded Warrior and Grade 3 winner Sword Of Destiny that was knocked down to Ian Ferguson for €110,000.

    The three-year-old gelding was consigned by White Horse Stud, the property of Stephen Lanigan O’Keeffe.

    Another to fetch the €110,000 mark was Glenvale Stud’s son of Flemensfirth out of a sister to multiple Grade 1 winner Albertas Run that was purchased by Alan and Ann Potts.

    Just trying to find out a bit more info about give me a copper in training with Paul Nicholls And few more of these came up catching the eye. Bring on NH season.

    THE inaugural Goffs UK Aintree Sale held after racing on Thursday evening produced fireworks, with six lots selling for six figures headed by point-to-point winner Samcro, who was snapped by Mags O'Toole on behalf of Gordon Elliott for £335,000.

    This was the first sale under the Goffs UK banner after the company announced in February that the sale company was to rebrand from DBS.

    A four-year-old son of Germany, best known as the sire of Champion Hurdle winner Faugheen and dual Grade 1 scorer Captain Cee Bee, Samcro was offered by Colin Bowe's Milestone Stables having landed a 3m maiden four-year-old point-to-point at Monksgrange last Saturday.

    After a lengthy bidding battle it was O'Toole who came out on top and she said: "Gordon loved the horse - it was a tough battle and he cost plenty. But good horses cost that type of money so let's hope he's a good horse."

    Give Malone a Copper
    Tom Malone had to go to £270,000 to secure Give Me A Copper, a six-year-old son of Presenting who sauntered to a six-and-a-half-length success in a bumper at Cork last month for Donal Coffey.

    Prior to his bumper victory, Give Me A Copper had landed a point-to-point at Athlacca by eight lengths, and his page matched up with his form as he is a brother to useful hurdler Presenting Copper, the dam of five winners including Listed-bumper heroine Copper Kay.

    Malone, who was buying for an undisclosed client, said: "You don't get much better than that page, plus he's demolished a field in a point-to-point and then done the same in a bumper.

    "He's two from two and has the pedigree to back it up. He looks like a proper, proper National Hunt horse that could go all the way."

    Black Op for Brookhouse
    Roger Brookhouse, whose previous boutique sale purchases include Arkle hero Western Warhorse, was another to spend big on a point-to-pointer, parting with £210,000 for Black Op.

    Offered by Ballygelly Stables, the five-year-old son of Sandmason has only had one start pointing this year which was won in impressive fashion as he cruised to a 25-length success at Loughanmore.

    Sheikh Fahad makes a splash
    Supplementary entry Carter McKay, a five-year-old son of Martaline, was purchased by Peter Molony on behalf of David Redvers for Sheikh Fahad for £160,000.

    Consigned by Knockbrack Bloodstock, Carter McKay has had two runs between the flags, finishing second on his debut before notching his first success last Sunday in a 3m maiden at Ballynoe.

    Molony said: "He'll go to Willie Mullins, have a break and he should be a bumper horse.

    "I know the horse well as I bought him as a foal [in 2011] and sold him on to the present owners as a three-year-old privately.

    "Sheikh Fahad had good fun with Current Event finishing fourth in the Foxhunters today, is enjoying jump racing and loved the Cheltenham experience."

    Mullins makes a mark
    After a successful day on the racetrack that saw Willie Mullins close the gap on Paul Nicholls for the British trainers' championship to £24,466, Mullins and his bloodstock adviser Harold Kirk were busy in the ring securing Judgement Day for £145,000.

    The four-year-old son of Martaline had won a 3m maiden point-to-point at Liscaroll by three lengths on his only start last month.

    Mullins said: "I like the sire and Judgement Day was a very convincing winner of his point-to-point.

    "The plan is for him to run in a bumper next season and he has a lovely pedigree too."

    Highlyer at the top of their game
    Highflyer Bloodstock secured the last of the six-figure lots to go through the ring, paying £120,000 for Topofthegame.

    A four-year-old son of Flemensfirth, the Monbeg Stables-consigned lot was an impressive nine-length winner of a 3m maiden point-to-point at Belclare in March.

    I thought about adding Ivan Grozny to this thread, hacked up without breaking sweat on Saturday in a G3, could be he's improved and may make into a decent County hurdle horse or maybe even bigger prizes.....

    Was an impressive display. Galway next ?

    Sandymount Duke won a decent enough novice chase at Killarney last night. Being talked about as a possible Irish National horse.

    Jessica Harrington's Sandymount Duke stayed on stoutly to see off his five rivals in the extended two and three quarter mile novice chase in Killarney.

    The 9/4 favourite was well off the bridle turning for home in second behind the smoooth-travelling Deans Road.

    Power drove his mount upsides Deans Road at the third last but he was less than fluent there. However, he went into the lead heading to the second last as Deans Road stayed in the same gear.< Sandymount Duke was ridden to assert after the penultimate fence. A good jump at the last helped his cause and he boxed on as Valyssa Monterg (3/1) ran on into second without threatening him. She finished two and a half lengths adrift.

    "He'll be finished blowing before I'm finished blowing! He's a wonderful horse, he never wins races by far and only does what he has to do and makes you work for it," Robbie Power said.

    "He keeps plenty for himself - I'll have a chat with the trainer now and see what our options are but he could stay a novice for this season and then a race like the Irish National could be right up his street.

    "No doubt he could stay extreme distances and the further they go the better for him."
    Oathkeeper out tonight. Unbackable at 1/4 but might be a proper one.

    JP's buys


    Top French mare Kotkikova is set to join Nicky Henderson's team after being bought by leading owner JP McManus.

    The five-year-old boasted 11 wins in 14 starts for Jean-Paul Gallorini, winning a Grade One chase as well as being placed at the highest level over hurdles.

    Kotkikova has won twice over hurdles at Auteuil in recent weeks and was a notable contender for Saturday's Prix La Barka, which she now bypasses following her sale.
