Champion Hurdle contenders to run
More Christmas racing news and it looks like, THE NEW ONE is set for an exciting ‘Champion Hurdle’ taster showdown at Kempton with MY TENT OR YOURS.
Nigel Twiston-Davies reported his rising star had taken Saturday’s Cheltenham win in his stride and was “100 per cent” when pulling out on Sunday morning.
The Grade 1 williamhill.com Christmas Hurdle on December 26 will mark a first hurdles clash between Britain’s two premier Champion Hurdle contenders, although they did meet in a bumper at Aintree’s Grand National meeting in 2012 when The New One came out on top, finishing a length and a quarter ahead.
Although an ante-post market has yet to take shape for Kempton, the sponsor on Sunday priced up the race as a match, with The New One 8-11 and My Tent Or Yours evens.
Twiston-Davies said: “The horse is 100 per cent. I can’t see any obvious alternative to Kempton and therefore he’s likely to run.
“He wasn’t off the bridle until the run in [on Saturday] and therefore did not have a hard time of it.”
