Summer jumpers

The relatively light summer jumping programme means it takes a little less effort to keep on top of the form. Since late April I've tried to read the jumps form each week (as published in The Weekender) and in the process compile a list of horses that have been the subject of positive comments. Obviously any such list, by nature, is arbitrary and I've reproduced it here. Listed horses should at least be worth a second glance if running in the forthcoming weeks. Jump races up to Sunday July 1st have have been analysed.

Mind How You Go - could go to Newton Abbot in August
Jam Packed - wins in a decent time
Kawagino - second to Jam Packed; getting better over fences?
Hellfire Club - bumper winner from Carl Llewellyn stable
Mange Tout - wins in fast time
Soliya - wins first juvenile hurdle of season
Commercial Express
Danehill Willy
The King Of Angels - 5yo finishing second in handicap chase
Iron Man - aimed at Market Rasen in July
Pearl King - aimed at Market Rasen hurdle in July
Capitana - second to Pearl King, pair clear
Ice Tea
Classic Gold - beat previous winner Dariak easily
Blandings Castle
Etoile Russe
Olmeto Collonges - H. Knight 'thinks a lot of him'; needs cut
