Our 40 To Follow series features 40 National Hunt horses who look set for successful campaigns in 2021/22. We've had seven winners from 16 runners so far this season, and two tracker horses will make an appearance on Sunday.

Tracker Alert - Saturday 31st October

Silver Hallmark

New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

SILVER HALLMARK makes just his sixth start under rules in the Listed feature at Carlisle on Sunday. Fergal O'Brien's charge ran just twice over hurdles in 19/20, and twice over fences last season.

Having run Fiddlerontheroof very close on his chase debut last November, Silver Hallmark powered to an impressive four-length victory in the Altar Novices' Chase at Haydock, before a foot problem ruled him out for the remainder of the campaign.

That Grade Two triumph means O'Brien's seven-year-old will have to shoulder a six pound penalty on his reappearance. Lining up in opposition is 160-rated Espoir De Romay, Grade One-winning novice hurdler Ahoy Senor and Silver Hallmark's old sparring partner, Fiddlerontheroof. 

I'd be surprised if Silver Hallmark did carry weight to victory on Sunday, but a good run would set him up for a tilt at a lucrative handicap, as he's clearly very well treated off his current mark of 145.

Noble Yeats

Noble Yeats2:25pm Cork Grade Three Novices' ChaseGET 11/2 HERE
18+ only. Ts and Cs apply. Gamble responsibly.

I was really impressed with NOBLE YEATS' first chase start at Galway last month. Emmet Mullins' six-year-old, who only ran once over hurdles last season, made several mistakes early on and was still fourth jumping the second-last. Brian Hayes mount powered home once he hit the riding ground, and pinched victory away from Gabynako.

Given his lack of experience, you'd expect Noble Yeats to come on significantly from that chase debut. Stepping up from 18 to 20 furlongs will definitely suit and any extra softening in the ground would do his chances no harm.

The bookmakers all have Bleu Berry, Cape Gentleman and French Dynamite ahead of Noble Yeats in the market. Personally, I think the field is tightly matched here, and Noble Yeats represents plenty of value at his current price.
