Style de Garde (FR)

Style de Garde is as handsome four-year-old jumper as you would clap your eyes on. He stood out in the paddock for the Fred Winter Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival and emerged the best horse in this always ultra competitive race. He had to give 8lb to the Gordon Elliott trained winner and was only beaten three lengths, clear of the rest.

Style de Garde’s English debut, an easy win at Newbury, had been a copycat of his final French race – an easy win in Strasbourg. Two other hurdles in his first season in Britain were not up to that standard but his sire Kapgarde is principally a sire of chasers and that will be Style de Garde’s job. He is the first foal out of a smart race mare, Anowe de Jelois, a five-time winner. Her second has just emerged to win on its flat debut at Saint-Cloud.

With speed in his pedigree and jumping in his blood Style de Garde’s possibilities this forthcoming season cannot be overstated.
