World Hurdle Favourite Big Bucks Cruises To Long Distance Win

Monday 28th November 2011

We have seen a real Cheltenham Festival legend return to the track this weekend as Big Bucks hosed up on seasonal debut. The Paul Nicholls horse has been unbeaten over hurdles for 13 consecutive races now and his latest win in the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury was as impressive as ever. Nicholls has already stated that he believes that Big Bucks could be better than ever this season and his run at Newbury has done nothing to dispel that theory. Ruby Walsh hardly moved as Big Bucks cruised to the win at Newbury for the third consecutive year and it looked the ideal starting point with the World Hurdle once again the long term aim. Big Bucks has proven untouchable at Cheltenham for the past three years and at the moment the bookmakers are convinced he will bag number four in March.

We have seen one or two horses push Big Bucks in the World Hurdle but no horse has been able to live with his gallop over the three mile distance. He stays as well as anyone and ever since he was switched back to hurdles from fences his jumping has been faultless in the big races. Big Bucks will now head to Ascot for the Long Walk Hurdle, as he has done for the last few years, before heading to the Cheltenham Festival for the big one in March. It is hard to see past Big Bucks in the World Hurdle Betting with only one or two other horses perhaps in contention with only two horses potentially on an upward curve. They include the exciting grey Dynaste, who looks like a Grands Crus clone for David Pipe and Oscar Whisky who has shown to be a horse of the very highest class on his best day.
