Horse Racing Trackers: Five Horses To Watch Include Some Potential Cheltenham Festival Contenders

In the 8th November edition of this column, I flagged Red Rookie who finished second in a competitive novices’ handicap; and while he is yet to run, I thought it would be worth noting that the form of that race has been boosted significantly with the third and fourth both winning since. Furthermore, Witness Protection, who beat Red Rookie that day, has had the form of his previous run franked too; he only faced three rivals when finishing second at Newton Abbot, but all three have won since. These two are certainly worth keeping onside when next seen.
