Jumps Racing 2018/2019 Hunt Season 

The Cheltenham Festival is always the highlight of the season but there is plenty of racing to enjoy before then and he have already seen some stunning performances. The highlight came at Kempton on Boxing Day when Clan Des Obeaux claimed the King George in stunning fashion and he is now set for a tilt at the Gold Cup during the 2019 Cheltenham Festival for Ditcheat trainer Paul Nicholls.

Native River was a staying on 3rd place in the King George and can't be ruled out of the Gold Cup as he looks to win the race for a second year on the bounce in March for Colin Tizzard and Richard Johnson.

Elsewhere, Altior has continued to make serene progress with wins in the Tingle Creek and Desert Orchid Chase to his name and plenty of punters will be using their Cheltenham Free Bets on the Nicky Henderson trained superstar. The Seven Barrows team are blessed with a host of superstars including Buveur D'air who won the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle in scintillating fashion as his bid for a third Champion Hurdle crown started in impressive fashion back in November.

Willie Mullins and Gordon Elliott are continuing to dominate the scene in Ireland as always with stars like Kemboy and Battleoverdoyen claiming big race success so far this winter and both are on track to head over to England in March with chances.

Laurina remains one of the most exciting young horses in the sport for Mullins after her classy success at Sandown on seasonal debut with many believing she is set to rival the boys in the Champion Hurdle.

Things haven't gone to plan for Samcro though with the Ballymore winner from last term flopping for Gordon Elliott after connections had decided to keep him over hurdles, meaning his future now remains up in the air.
