Excessive-class hurdler the New One defied a BHA mark of 160 in 2017 whereas subsequent Champion Hurdle second Silver Streak was a snip off simply 139 the next 12 months.
This 12 months’s topweight Ballyandy (154) may need had higher prospects on the previous date, as he has run a lot of his greatest races when the bottom is tender sufficient to convey his stamina into play.
He’ll do nicely to provide the burden to up-and-coming kids with a string of ones to their title, together with Predominant Truth who has gained his final 5 races – although he’s no sure runner because of the drying floor.

What they are saying

The softer the bottom the higher and he isn’t a particular runner if it dries out.

After having a busy time with Hughie Morrison he did nicely for us final season. He has fairly a excessive ranking however he seems to be tremendous.
