Champion Hurdle The Aim For Classy Yanworth

Wednesday 7th December 2016
Yanworth

News has emerged this week that Yanworth is to be dropped in trip with the Champion Hurdle now the likely aim for the Alan King in-mate. The JP McManus owned horse was good enough to finish 2nd in the Neptune last season as a novice and his future plans had been up in the air with two potential options being discussed.

The 6YO made his seasonal debut at Ascot last month when winning the 2m3f Coral Ascot Hurdle with a battling display and following that it had been expected that the horse would be aimed at the World Hurdle. 

Those plans appear to have changed now with the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton on Boxing Day now his likely target over the Festive period. That comes after Unowhatimeanharry impressed recently when winning the Long Distance Hurdle and given that he also wears the famous green and gold JP silks, it now seems like he and Yanworth will be kept apart.

McManus also has former Champion Hurdler Jezki amongst his ranks this season and the thought of running all three in the World Hurdle is clearly not an appealing one at this stage.

Yanworth was certainly staying on through the line when winning at Ascot on the last day which would be a worry as he drops in trip but equally, he clearly wanted to go a quicker pace in the early stages and a fast run 2m could well see him seen to best impact.

The ante-post markets were shaken up yesterday in the wake of this news with Yanworth into a best price 12/1, from 14s, for the Champion Hurdle in the spring. That price could yet contract further in the next few weeks with fitness doubts continuing to remain over Faugheen and Annie Power and Yanworth running over 2m could now be one of the highlights of December.
