Blu Cavalier was purchased out of a selling hurdle at Fakenham in January 2019. Just a month later, he gave us all a day to remember when finishing third in the £85,000 Grade 3 Betfair Hurdle at Ascot! He has since won in class 2 company and is a hugely exciting prospect for 2020/21.
Originally intended to be a six-month syndicate, Blu Cavalier ran a brilliant race to finish third in the Betfair Hurdle and backed that up with a fine run in the Grade 2 Select Hurdle, despite trip and ground being against him, so all involved decided to keep him in training for 2019/20.
On his second start of the 2019/20 season, he recorded a career-best effort to win a class 2 handicap hurdle at Doncaster and we are now looking forward to an exciting autumn campaign in France, where Blu Cavalier is now in training with David Cottin.

A three-time Champion National Hunt jockey in France, David Cottin retired from the saddle in 2017 and could hardly have made a more impressive start to his training career.
In under three years, he has trained over 150 winners and has firmly established himself as one of the leading trainers in France. Fourth in the Trainers' Championship there in 2019, he is behind only Francois Nicolle and Guillaume Macaire in 2020 and his burgeoning string contains several top-class performers.
It is tremendously exciting to have a horse in training with David for the first time this year and we look forward to organising a visit to his yard in Chantilly in the autumn.
