Defi Du Seuil The Red Hot Favourite For Exciting Looking Coral Hurdle At Ascot

Saturday 25th November, 2.40pm - Coral Ascot Hurdle

A busy weekend of national hunt racing is ahead and plenty of the attention will fall on Ascot as they host a terrific fixture. The Grade 2 Coral Hurdle is one of the highlights of the day with the 2m3f contest always a pointer for the rest of the season. Recent winners of the race include Annie Power, Faugheen and Rock On Ruby and it can be a trial for both the Champion Hurdle and the Stayers' Hurdle.

  • Silviniaco Conti was the last 4YO winner of the Coral Hurdle in 2010 - Zaynar was also 4 when he won in 2009

All Eyes On Defi

We only have five runners engaged on Saturday, but there is a star attraction with Defi Du Seuil set to make his seasonal debut.

One of the stars of last season, the Philip Hobbs trained hurdler swept all before him in the juvenile division, and many are predicting that he is a genuine Champion Hurdle contender this winter. He won the Triumph Hurdle with some style back in March and the racing world is now waiting with bated breath to see if he can kick on in open company.

He certainly starts as red hot favourite on seasonal debut this weekend with Paddy Power making him the 8/11 jolly to claim the win.

Connections should have him fit for this first run of the season having decided to swerve the Greatwood Hurdle at Cheltenham, and how he performs on Saturday should tell us plenty about his 2018 chances.

Is There Anything To Challenge The Favourite?

Defi Du Seuil is clearly the one with the potential in the field but punters looking to find a bigger priced alternative do have one or two options.

Lil Rockerfeller is perhaps at his best up at 3m but he never runs a bad race, and could well put the favourite under pressure. Still only six, he pushed Yanworth close int his contest 12 months ago, and a repeat of that run could make him the major threat to Defi Du Seuil at 7/2 with Paddy Power.

Nicky Henderson runs the talented, but quirky, L'Ami Serge (10/3) in the race and he is always one to keep an eye on. The key to him these days appears to be 3m so this could well be seen as a starting point towards a tilt at the Stayers' Hurdle crown in the spring. Best watched.

Conclusion

Backing Defi Du Seuil at such a short price on seasonal debut is perhaps not ideal but with little opposition, it is hard to find an alternative. His class last season was without question, and he should be a cut above these on Saturday.
