Paddy Power Future Champions Novice Hurdle (Grade 1) of £80,000.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 1st - £52,000.00 2nd - £16,000.00 3rd - £8,000.00 4th - £3,200.00 9 Declared Soft Fine


Formscan By Donal Murphy - JEZKI is the obvious choice and it is hard to oppose the Jessica Harrington trained gelding. The 4yo son of Milan has done everything right since going over hurdles and his Grade 1 success in the Royal Bond last time out will ensure he goes off the warm order favourite for this contest. He beat the well regarded Ally Cascade on his hurdling debut at Naas and he can confirm places with that one here. The classy Waaheb is his biggest danger. The Dermot Weld trained gelding was one of the best bumper horses in the country in 2011 and he got off the mark over hurdles on the first time of asking at Fairyhouse in October. With Tony McCoy booked to ride he is sure to give the selection the most to do. Bright New Dawn beat the well regarded Ned Buntline last time out and he should run well while Wingtips could also run a big race after finally shedding his maiden tag last time out.
