Gavin Cromwell Stable Tour 2023/24

🌟 Stable Stars 🌟

Encanto Bruno

He’s a fantastic horse to get into the yard. He’s probably not one for deep winter ground. We are likely to run him at Cheltenham next week and he has a couple of options in novice hurdles there. We are really looking forward to getting him going.

Flooring Porter

He is going to make his debut over fences in a three-mile novice chase at Cheltenham next week. He needs to go left-handed and we couldn’t find a suitable race for him over here, so that’s why he’s going to travel there. His schooling over fences has been very good and we’re looking forward to getting him going. He has been an absolute star for all of us and hopefully he has plenty more big days ahead of him.


I thought he was really good on his chasing debut at Gowran Park. His jumping was very good. We are considering a Grade 3 novice chase at Cork on November 5th for him. Alternatively, he could go straight to the Drinmore Novice Chase at Fairyhouse. We think that he’s a smart prospect over fences.


He had a bit of a setback over the summer, so he is a bit behind the others and might not be out until Christmas at the earliest. We’ll be working backwards from the Grand National with him after he ran so well in it last year. We were very proud of him that day, but sure it’s only natural to wonder what might have been on another day when you watch him finish as strongly as he did. It’s very hard to get these horses to big days like that in top form and to get the bounce of the ball on the day, but we’ll try to do it again with him next year.

➡️ Novice Hurdlers

Antrim Coast

We were delighted with him getting off the mark at Punchestown the other day. He’s a lovely staying horse that is still quite green. He’s by Presenting and probably won’t want deep winter ground, so we might just give him one more run before putting him away for the spring. He’s one I’m looking forward to.


She’s a lovely, big mare. We’ll look to start her off over hurdles in about a month. She’s one we’re looking forward to, though we see her as a long-term prospect that will make a super chaser in the fullness of time. She’ll be a real winter mare.

Charming Fortune

He’s a horse we liked, but he has been a little disappointing so far. It might just take time for him to show what he can do, as I think he has plenty of ability. We’ll try to get his head in front in a maiden hurdle and look to build from there.


I was impressed with him at Gowran Park. I’m pretty sure he’s better going right-handed, but we’re going to have to chance him left-handed in a four-year-old only winners-of-two at Naas on November 12th as that is a stand-out option for him. He looks a smart horse.

Mint Boy

We are looking at a winner’s race at Galway for him later this month and he could be one for the Monksfield Novice Hurdle at Navan after that. I think he’s a smart horse.


I was delighted with his win at Fairyhouse. We are potentially looking at the Monksfield Novice Hurdle at Navan in the middle of November for him. He travelled really well over two miles at Fairyhouse, but I think he’ll definitely stay further. I like him.

➡️ Juveniles

Pinot Gris

The plan is to go juvenile hurdling with him, and he might well start off at Galway on October 28th. His schooling has been good and he looks the right type in that he stays well on the Flat and likes soft ground.

➡️ Novice Chasers


He’s a horse we have good regard for. The plan is to go novice chasing with him this season. He might well start off at Wexford at the end of the month.

La Malmason

She ran OK on her chasing debut and is entered at Limerick this weekend. She needs to improve, and I think she will. Winter ground suits her well.

Law Ella

She has been declared to make her chasing debut at Thurles. She has schooled well over fences, and I think she’s going to win races over them. Hopefully she makes a positive start and can drive on from there.

My Mate Mozzie

I was a bit disappointed to see him beaten on his chasing debut the other day. The plan is to send him to Cheltenham racecourse next week for a two-mile novice chase. He’s just not seeing out his races as well as he should, so we’re going to try him in a tongue tie and potentially ride him a bit differently which we think might help him.

Path D'oroux

His form has been a little in and out. He was let down by his jumping in a Grade 3 novice chase at Punchestown last time. We’ll drop him in class for a beginners chase at Wexford at the end of the month and hopefully we can get him back on the right track there.

Perceval Legallois

I was impressed with the way he jumped and travelled on his chasing debut. If you were being tough, you could say that he should have been beating the couple that he beat based on their hurdle form, but we were delighted with the way he did it. We are considering options for him at the minute, but the Grade 3 novice chase at Cork on November 5th might well be his next target.

➡️ Older Chasers

Brides Hill

We were delighted with her win at Listowel last month. She’s one that we’ll keep for mares’ chases, and I’d imagine we’ll travel to the UK with her. Sure, we’d love to end up in the Mares’ Chase at the Cheltenham Festival with her, but she will hopefully have good days before then.

Final Orders

We are looking at the Paddy Power Gold Cup at the November Meeting at Cheltenham for him, ground permitting. We just don’t want the ground to be too testing for him. The handicapper might have hold him over fences, but he could win a big one on a day that it all goes right for him. He has a lower mark over hurdles, and we’ll try to exploit that at some point, I’m sure.

Limerick Lace

We aren’t 100% sure where we’re going with her yet, but she’ll be ready to start back in a few weeks. She’s likely to be one for mares’ chases and might have a crack at a good staying handicap chase. I’d be hopeful that there is more progression in her.

Malina Girl

I was a bit disappointed with her latest run over hurdles off what was a much lower mark than she has over fences. We might just go back chasing with her. She stays very well and might well end up back in the Ulster National later in the season.


He will most likely go straight to the Troytown Chase at Navan. The handicapper might have a bit of a grip on him. He ran ok in the Kerry National, but his jumping probably just let him down a bit on the day. I have a thought that British fences might suit him a little bit better than Irish fences, so we’ll keep that in mind when we are considering targets for him.

➡️ Bumper Horses

Only By Night

I have her entered in a mares’ bumper at Limerick this weekend and I think she’ll start off there. She’ll most likely go novice hurdling sooner rather than later and I think she’s going to be a useful mare.

Springt De La Mare

We’ll start him off in a bumper, but I’d say it won’t be for at least six weeks. He goes like a nice horse, but we won’t be in a rush with him, and he could well stay in bumpers for this season.
