Top Class Ivanovich Gorbatov The Hot Anniversary 4YO Hurdle Favourite

Thursday 7th April 2016, 2.15pm - Anniversary 4YO Hurdle

The eyes of the racing world will fall on Aintree this Thursday for the first day of the Grand National meeting and there are a number of top class races to follow. One race that certainly catches the eye is the Grade 1 Anniversary 4YO Juvenile Hurdle as some of the best young horses in training clash in Grade 1 company and it looks like a real cracker.

  • The last horse to win the Triumph Hurdle and the Anniversary 4YO Hurdle in the same season was Zarkandar in 2011
  • Alan King has trained the Anniversary 4YO Hurdle winner four times during his career since 2007

Triumph Hurdle Form To Bet Tested

A number of the horses engaged on Thursday are coming straight from the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham last month and it will be fascinating to see if that form holds up on Merseyside.

Ivanovich Gorbatov was the impressive winner of the Triumph Hurdle for Joseph O'Brien and there is no doubt this is a highly exciting horse who could be anything. He travelled like a dream at Cheltenham before quickening up in very taking fashion on ground that day that will have suited him perfectly.

That run ensures Ivanovich Gorbatov is the one to beat and it would be no surprise to see him win again at a price of Evens with Sky Bet although too much rain would hinder his chances, as he showed when only 4th in the Spring Juvenile Hurdle back in February in heavy conditions.

Footpad (11/2) was the winner of that race in February in very testing ground for Willie Mullins and he followed that up with a solid 3rd place in the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham in very quick conditions. A clearly versatile horse who very rarely runs a poor race, Footpad is a solid each-way bet here as a result and it would be a surprise if he was out of the frame.

Mullins will also run Apple's Jade in the race after her 2nd place in the Triumph Hurdle and she is clearly a juvenile to follow for the Irish handler. She was very impressive when chasing home Ivanovich Gorbatov and her mares allowance has to give her a chance in this one at a price of 9/2 with Sky Bet and she is another one who is versatile conditions wise.

Other Contenders to Consider

The Fred Winter is often referred to as the Triumph Hurdle B race at Cheltenham and that theory will be tested here as the winner of the Fred Winter, Diego Du Charmill (8/1), steps up in class. The Paul Nicholls trained hurdler made his British debut at Cheltenham and was clearly well handicapped as he claimed the win in decent fashion and the vibes from the yard suggest that this is a pretty smart animal, which he will need to be to feature here.

Sceau Royal is another juvenile who has impressed this season with a series of wins for Alan King and although he did disappoint in the Triumph Hurdle, it is too early to write him off just yet. He is an efficient jumper and battler which can only be a good thing and although he might lack the class of the top few here, he might out run his 16/1 odds.
