Triumph Hurdle Analysis
A large field and a very fast pace will test these youngsters. Some experience over hurdles and a proven ability to win
, preferably in a good class race, is what we are looking for.
Since the introduction of the Fred Winter Juvenile Hurdle the Triumph Hurdle has become a much better race for punters
with only Countrywide Flame causing a big shock.

in this race with two wins, two seconds and a third since 2005.
