Our 40 To Follow series features 40 National Hunt horses who look set for successful campaigns in 2021/22. We've had eight winners, plus placers in the West Yorkshire Hurdle and the Ladbrokes Champion Chase, from 19 runners so far this season, and two tracker horses will make an appearance on Saturday.
Tracker Alert - Saturday 6th November
Bravemansgame1:50pm Wincanton John Romans Park Homes "Rising Stars" Novices' Chase (Grade 2) 2m4fGET 2/5 HERE
18+ only. Ts and Cs apply.
Paul Nicholls could hardly have hoped for more from Bravemansgame's chasing debut at Newton Abbot. True, he was getting plenty of weight from both Fusil Raffles and The Big Breakaway, but Harry Cobden's mount comprehensively outjumped two experienced chasers and powered clear without really being tested.
Fusil Raffles boosted that form somewhat by claiming a fortuitous victory in the Charlie Hall Chase. Bravemansgame isn't really a betting proposition on Saturday, so we'll just hope for another flawless display from one of Britain most exciting novice chasers.

Jonjo O'Neill will give impressive Midlands Grand National winner, Time To Get Up his first look at Aintree's most fearsome fences on Saturday. The bookies have Time To Get Up as the favourite for the Grand Sefton, despite the fact Tom Scudamore's mount has never run at Aintree before, many of his rivals have a run under their belt and this 21-furlong trip is shorter than ideal.
I'm happy to watch Time To Get Up on Saturday. I've backed another horse against him, you can find out who that is in my ITV Racing tips piece for Saturday.
If Time To Get Up gets around the National course unscathed back in fourth or fifth, I'll be quite pleased. You can still get 25/1 about this progressive chaser for the Grand National with Unibet, so if you do fancy him to win at Aintree in April, then you may be best served backing him for the Grand National now, instead of Saturday's Grand Sefton.
