How Twitter Reacted To The Return Of Simonsig

Tuesday 10th November 2015

When Simonsig won the 2013 Arkle Chase in spectacular style, he was among the most popular and exciting horses in training but following a near three year absence the big question remained ahead of his return at the weekend; Was there anything left in tank?

Channel 4 Racing were quick to set the scene for the return of Simonsig at the weekend;

Fingers were also being crossed by Camilla Henderson, the daughter of Nicky Henderson, with the horse clearly still held in high regard by all at Seven Barrows.

Simsonsig was always an exuberant runner, even in his hey day, and that was the case again as he raced with great enthusiasm on Saturday before being beaten by Bobs Worth after finding very little off the bridle.

Channel 4 Racing were impressed with both horses;

Social media quickly exploded with views on the returning Simonsig with opinions being thrown around left right and centre by various figures from within the sport as well as racing fans.

A drop back in trip to 2m is now on the cards for Simonsig with the Tingle Creek at Sandown his next aim according to reports.

We ran a poll about Simonsig following his return and it seems as though the majority of our followers do still retain faith in the dual Cheltenham Festival winner. It would certainly be fantastic to see him back to his best in the Tingle Creek.
