Here we're looking at a select band of horses that have the potential to win races of any grade this season.
Some of the 12 horses outlined below certainly have the scope to become high-profile horses, whereas others are chosen with a view to their trainers being able to exploit their current handicap marks.
The dozen horses all hail from a range of yards in Great Britain, some well-known but others less so, and look set to reward their followers with plenty of success in 2016/17.
