Jumps Season - At The Races

Alan King Stable Tour

    The master of Barbury Castle had another consistent season in 2018/19 and has a well-balanced squad to go to war with in the upcoming campaign.
  • Features

It was a resumption of normal high standards for Alan King and his Barbary Castle team in the 2018/2019 season with his 91 winners netting £1,259,316 in prize money.

The season ended on a high note when Talkischeap landed the bet365 Gold Cup on the final day of the season at Sandown and there had been earlier notable successes with The Glancing Queen taking the Grade 2 mares’ bumper at Aintree and Sceau Royal showing he was better than ever when landing the Grade 2 Shloer Chase at Cheltenham on his reappearance.

That trio will once again be in action and Scarlet Dragon has already set out stall for what the trainer hopes will be another stellar season with victory in a listed handicap hurdle at Market Rasen at the end of September.

With a perfect mix of experienced handicap chasers, progressive handicap hurdlers, new recruits to novice chasing, bumper winners going novice hurdling and his usual productive team of juvenile hurdlers it will hopefully be repeat business for King this season.

Alan kindly spoke to Tony Elves of attheraces.com about some of his main hopes for a busy period ahead.

Form Profile:

135-rated hurdler. Successful in a novice hurdle at Exeter (2m 2 1/2f) in November and followed up with a three and a half length defeat of Darlac in a Grade 2 contest at Sandown (2m 4f) in December.

Trainer Says:

She is a decent mare who won a Graded race at Sandown last year. The plans with her is to send her over fences – she is an Irish point winner and I would have thought two and a half miles plus in novice chases would be ideal for her. She loves soft ground.

Form Profile:

135-rated chaser. Gained his last win when beating Mr Palmtree seven lengths in a novices’ chase at Ludlow (2m 4f) in February.

Trainer Says:

He was progressive last year, and he was fairly hot-headed in his younger days but the more racing he has done the better he has got. He won a couple last season and I would expect that he would probably improve again this season. We will start him at two and a half, but I could see him stepping up to three miles later in the season.

Trainer Says:

He is a good novice from last year who really took to chasing well. We will stick to two miles with him for the time being, but I could see him going up to two and a half later on. He does seem to appreciate better ground and wouldn’t want it too deep.

Trainer Says:

He is back cantering away and obviously he missed last season jumping. You won’t see him until the second half of the season but if we get him back, we would be looking at those conditions hurdles for him. He finished fifth in a Champion Hurdle at couple of years ago.

Trainer Says:

She is a decent bumper mare and won very impressively at Southwell. She probably had gone over the top when I ran her at Aintree. She has summered really well and is working away grand and she will go mare novices’ hurdles. I would imagine we would start her at two miles, but she would get a bit further.

Trainer Says:

He is a grand little horse – not the biggest and we won a couple of good handicap hurdles with him last season. We sent him over fences, and he seems to love it and he has won his two. He has only just come back from his late summer holiday and it is going to get harder with his double penalty but he’s a grand horse who tries very hard and I hope he will win again.

He is a very likeable Irish point-to-point winner. We bought him in the spring and did a little bit of work with him and we were pleased with that. He will head straight over hurdles and will start over two and a half miles with the likelihood that he will step up in trip as the season goes on.

Trainer Says:

He just took a little time to get his act together but then won a couple in the spring and was an excellent second in a very valuable novices’ handicap hurdle at Sandown on the last day of the season. The plan is to stay hurdling with him at the moment and he is possibly one for the Greatwood Hurdle.

Form Profile:

136-rated chaser. Off the mark last season with a 13-length victory from Paddy’s Poem off a mark of 117 at Stratford (2m 1f) in March and followed up with a seven-length win from Envoye Special at Kempton (2m) a week later.

Trainer Says:

He had been a little frustrating in that we sent him novice chasing in the spring and he won both his starts and then the ground had firmed up and we couldn’t run him again. We will stick down the two-mile route and he is an exciting prospect. Hopefully he will continue to progress.

Trueshan (FR)

Form Profile:

93-rated on the Flat. Winner of his first two starts over a mile and a half at Wolverhampton and Ffos Las in August and runner-up over a mile and six furlongs at Haydock in September.

Trainer Says:

He has been a very progressive three-year-old on the Flat this year. He won his first two and I was very pleased with him when he finished runner-up in a £100,000 handicap at Haydock. He might go to Newmarket in mid-October before going juvenile hurdling.

She won her only start at Uttoxeter. She is a filly who has always worked extremely well at home and she is one I think will stick to bumpers this season.
