1.20 Ballymore Novices' Hurdle Tips
Wednesday 17 March | Age: 4yo+ | Prize: £125,000
The Ballymore Novices Hurdle is a Grade 1 National Hunt hurdle race, open to horses four years and older who are novices (meaning they hadn’t won a race over hurdles prior to that season), the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle is run on the Old Course over a distance of about two miles and five furlongs (2 miles 5 furlongs and 26 yards).
If it wasn't for a one length defeat to the very smart Ferny Hollow (last year's bumper winner) BOB OLINGER would be undefeated in his career to date and he looks a very smart horse to me.
There is a fair bit of competition here, particularly in the shape of Bravemansgame and Gaillard Du Mesnil but I think Bob Olinger could be something special and a cut above the rest.
He has no problem with stamina but also has a turn of foot off a strong pace which will serve him well here.
- Bob Olinger 4pt win at 9-4 with Casumo
