Monday ninth January – Paul Nicholls Racing

We began the New Yr as we ended the outdated one with one other spectacular Grade 1 success.

Situations at Sandown have been attritional for the Tolworth Hurdle however Tahmuras dealt with them comfortably as he cruised by means of the race earlier than stretching clear on the flat for a prepared victory. He’s inexperienced however gifted, travelled so effectively and his leaping was excellent, too, till he made errors on the final two flights of hurdles. He has additionally proven he acts effectively on higher floor.
Harry Cobden didn’t need to hearth Tahmuras on the second final flight as a result of he didn’t need to be in entrance too quickly on that deep floor. He nonetheless gained with a lot in hand as he quickened away from his rivals and we are able to sharpen up his leaping.
I’d say it’s nearly sure that Tahmuras goes for the Supreme at Cheltenham. He suits the profile for the race and it wouldn’t make any sense for him to be taking over one other of our younger stars Hermes Allen within the Ballymore. He’s in the identical mould as our different winners Noland (Tolworth Winner ) and Al Ferof , each robust stayers.
Iceo ran a extremely promising race in ending second in a aggressive handicap at Sandown on his return from a bit of fracture that required surgical procedure. He’d been off for some time, simply wanted the outing, will enhance a lot for it and may very well be an fascinating contender for the Betfair Hurdle in a month’s time.
Stage Star gave us a superb begin to the week with a decisive victory over fences at Plumpton. It was good to see him again on observe after a under par run at Newbury. I don’t suppose he was proper that day however he appeared a lot brighter in himself at Plumpton the place he went around the parade ring with a spring in his step.
He jumped very effectively, was all the time in command and gained with a lot in hand. We’ve the choice of taking him Warwick for a fairly worthwhile race on Saturday or ready for an especially worthwhile one at Lingfield in a fortnight.
Stage Star may have an entry for each the Turners and Brown Advisory Chases on the Cheltenham Pageant and if we get him proper he’ll go for certainly one of them.
We’re closing quick on a century of winners and wish solely three extra to succeed in three figures. We nonetheless have about twenty horses to run who haven’t but had their mid winter vaccinations and expectantly we’d even obtain that landmark at Taunton the place we’ve a number of first rate probabilities at present (Monday).
Then we are going to once more be busy on the weekend with runners at Warwick and Kempton the place Pic D’Orhy runs within the Silviniaco Conti Chase and each Outlaw Peter and Pink Danger are pencilled in for the Lanzarote Hurdle.
Horses more likely to head to Warwick embody Threeunderthrufive within the £100,000 Basic Handicap Chase and Knowsley Street within the Grade 2 Leamington Novices Hurdle whereas both Stage Star or Full Unknown run within the Grade 2 Hampton Novice Chase.
For all the newest information on my Saturday runners do pease take a look at my Betfair column which works dwell early on Friday afternoon.
