William Hill ambassador Sam Twiston-Davies talks to Emma Spencer about some of the horses he’s most looking forward to this season.
Emma: Sam it’s an exciting time of the year, there’s a real buzz about the place because you’ve got the ammunition that are about to come out. What else are you looking forward to?
Sam: It’s that time of year now where you’ve got a lot of young horses coming through, we’ve got a really nice horse here who was placed in a Grade 1 at Aintree, One For Rosie, he’s very exciting.
We’ve got some really nice young horses, I won’t actually ride him but Echiquier is one of Simon and Issacs’s who’s done really well early season already. He won and then he ran okay in the Persian War but it was quite quick, I think he could be a lot of fun over fences, over hurdles, he’s got a lot of options which is really nice position to be in.
Emma: Another horse, trained by anyone in England that you’d love to jump on, that you think we haven’t seen the best in yet
Sam: I rode in a novice chase recently and it’s a bit unfair to say but Good Boy Bobby. He’s from here and it’s not very often you jump on a novice chaser and it goes where you have a really enjoyable first time over fences. We hadn’t done loads and loads of schooling with him, we’d done plenty but he jumped around Carlisle effortlessly. He’s still rated 139, the handicapper has got to assess him but he could be a really fun horse for the year. If he’s to make top grade then you kind of hope it will be over fences because I’ve not ridden something to take to fences as well as him for a long time.
