BHP Insurance Irish Champion Hurdle

Despite taking on last year’s winner Supasundae and 2018 Champion Hurdle runner-up Melon Gordon Elliott’s wonderful mare Apple’s Jade simply turned the BHP Insurance-sponsored contest into a procession, the mount of Jack Kennedy making all of the running to come home unchallenged by sixteen lengths. The daughter of Saddler Maker has now won all four starts this season by an aggregate of 73 lengths and while connections initially stuck by their original plan of running the seven-year-old in the OLBG Mares’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival the right decision (in the eye’s of the majority of her growing list of fans) has now been made to go for the Champion Hurdle for which she is a best price 9-4 with William Hill in their Cheltenham festival betting odds.

Ladbrokes Dublin Chase

Only five runners following the defection of Simply Ned and a straightforward victory for 4-9 favourite Min, the race spoiled by the fatal injury sustained by Special Tiara. The decision now has to be made by connections of the winner as to whether they take on Altior in the Champion Chase at the Cheltenham festival or go for the potentially ‘ easier’ Ryanair Chase. The eight-year-old is an 8-1 chance with William Hill for the former and 5-1 favourite for the longer race on the Thursday.

Frank Ward Solicitors Arkle Novice Chase

Another impressive win from the Joseph O’Brien-trained Le Richebourg who now heads the ante-post betting for the Racing Post Arkle at the festival with the 9-2 available with bet365 the best on offer. The six-year-old’s task was made easier however due to the falls of both Knocknanuss and Voix Du Reve.

Tattersalls Ireland Spring Juvenile Hurdle

Sunday’s card was hit by a host of non-runners due to the ground conditions but it was impossible not to be impressed with the victory of Sir Erec in the Grade 1 Juvenile contest. This classy ex-Flat performer is now as short as 2-1 for the Triumph Hurdle.

Flogas Novice Chase

A victory for the British with the Warren Greatrex-trained mare La Bague Au Roi making most of the running before seeing off 33-1 outsider Kaiser Black. The horse’s target at the festival has yet to be decided although the JLT (10-1 with bet365) would appear the logical choice.

Unibet Irish Gold Cup

Six non-runners meant that only four went to post but what a finish as only a short head separated the two principles with 2-1 second favourite Bellshill just getting the nod over 5-6 market leader Road To Respect. The result had little impact on the betting for the Cheltenham Gold Cup however with both horses available at 14-1 with William Hill.
