    Idaho Valley

    Four-year-old bay gelding (Jumps) Trainer: Donald McCain Shares available for £59

    Shares are available in the four-year-old gelding, Idaho Valley. This very good-looking son of Idaho won his only point-to-point start in Ireland in February, displaying an excellent attitude. The race at Tallow looked competitive on paper and it could throw up plenty of winners in time. He and the second-placed Don’t Tell Jack pulled over 20 lengths clear of the third. Idaho Valley is well-related, being a half-brother to the four-time winner, Toss Again. He is from the family of Cab On Target and Glenelly Gale, both Grade 1 winning chasers. His sire, Idaho, was runner-up in the Irish Derby and won the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes at Ascot as a four-year-old. Idaho Valley is in training with Donald McCain, who sourced this horse in Ireland with Owners Group in mind. Donald has enjoyed great success for Owners Group over the past few years, particularly with the Grade 1-placed Maximilian. Whilst it's possible that Idaho Valley might run in a bumper this season before having a summer break, it's more likely that he will keep his powder dry until the autumn, when he's due to go novice hurdling. He will hopefully make up into a chaser in time. "Idaho Valley is a lovely type and has settled in really well at Bankhouse Stables. He could have a run in a bumper this spring, but we may save him for novice hurdles this coming autumn, depending on how he progresses. He was very tough in his point-to-point, and I loved how he battled to deny the well-fancied runner-up." Donald McCain

    Presenting Doy

    Five-year-old bay mare (Jumps) Trainer: Emma Lavelle (Wiltshire) Shares available for £57

    Shares are available in the five-year-old mare, Presenting Doy. This daughter of Doyen won a point-to-point in Ireland at the end of November, when asserting to score comfortably. She is out of a sister to the useful Gold Present, whose five racecourse successes include a Listed Chase at Ascot. Gold Present also finished runner-up in two Grade 2 chases and the Listed Close Brothers Chase at the Cheltenham Festival. Doyen was a high-class middle-distance performer on the Flat and has sired numerous decent jumpers, including Battleoverdoyen (dual Grade 1 winner) and Beacon Edge (Grade 1 novice chase winner). Presenting Doy is to be trained by Emma Lavelle from her Bonita Racing Stables near Marlborough in Wiltshire. Emma is one of the country's leading trainers and has enjoyed plenty of success at the highest level, particularly with the evergreen Paisley Park. Emma has achieved a number of successes for Owners Group with the likes of Manorbank, Gold Link, Wouldubewell, and most recently, Kit's Coty. "I like the look of Presenting Doy. She showed great tenacity in her point-to-point and I am looking forward to training her. We are likely to give her a run in a bumper this season, before hopefully progressing to hurdling from the autumn onwards." Emma Lavelle

    Take Your Time

    Nine-year-old bay gelding (Jumps) Trainer: Paul Nicholls (Somerset) Shares available for £46

    Take Your Time is a nine-year-old bay gelding by Dubai Destination. Dubai Destination is also the sire of the top-class Elegant Escape, winner of the 2018 Welsh Grand National.

Take Your Time is in training with Paul Nicholls, who has been crowned champion trainer on a remarkable 14 occasions. He has enjoyed great success for Owners Group over the years, most notably with Grade 1 winner and recent Paddy Power Gold Cup winner, Stage Star.
