Ten To Follow Update (10.01.2018)

Posted 3 years ago

The Jumps season continues to pick up pace and this weekend we were treated to the re-arranged Welsh Grand National Meeting at Chepstow and the Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown. 

The weekend started over at Sandown with the Mares' Listed Hurdle. Poppy Kay bounced right back to form with a hard-earned win from Midnight Jazz. The Philip Hobbs stable seemed to have turned a corner at the beginning of 2018 and these could be many more winners to come. Later on the card there was the feature race of the meeting, the Tolworth Hurdle. There was a small shock as Summerville Boy for Tom George scooped the Grade 1 prize. The favourite, Western Ryder, was surprisingly disappointing.

We then headed to Chepstow for their premier meeting of the calendar, the Welsh Grand National. First up was a commanding display from We Have A Dream in the Future Champions Juvenile Hurdle. The well touted Nicky Henderson horse lived up to market expectations and now is at the fore of the market for the Champion Hurdle. The big race of the day saw Raz De Maree and James Bowen take the limelight. Under an assured ride from the teenager, the veteran Raz De Maree saw the trip out very well and was a 6 length winner.

Sadly for players there were no points scored this week.

Be sure to check back next Wednesday for the scores.
