Choc Thornton suggests an each way bet on Katchit for the Champion Hurdle. In a recent interview on attheraces with the Alan King stable jockey, he has indicated that Katchit is a decent each way chance for next weeks big race. Katchit was in great form last time out in the Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton where he beat Blythe Knight by five lengths. Katchit is not a big horse but he has a big heart and he jumps with such enthusiasm and never knows when he is beat. He will certainly give his backers a run for their money.
In the same interview he talked about his two potential rides in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle and My Way De Solzen who has been very disappointing this winter. Choc thinks that Blazing Bailey never knows when he is beat suggesting that he is a bit thick, but he said this in a very nice way. Choc will be hoping that he can have another good Cheltenham after winning the top jockey award for most wins last year.
His ride on Voy Por Ustedes is probably his best of the festival, where he will be taking on the Paul Nicholls duo in Master Minded who beat him last time up and Twist Magic.
