A weekly list of horses to follow CASTLEKELLYLEADER: Ridden with the utmost confidence to snatch the bumper at Naas on Saturday from the highly regarded Aidan O'Brien-trained favourite Minella Master. Disadvantaged by not having raced before, he could bea force in the valuable bumpers at the Cheltenham, Aintree and Punchestown festivals. (P Mullins).

JIBBER THE KIBBER: Put out of the race by a pile-up a mile from home in the competitive, two-and-a-half mile, 24-runner maiden hurdle won by the gambled-on Red Parade at Warwick on Saturday. Had moved up to join the leading group and was travelling cosily until that mishap. This six-year-old has a turn of foot, says his trainer. (Mrs J Pitman).
