Martin Pipe Conditionals Hurdle Analysis
One thing is certain - David Pipe
is going to be trying his damndest to win this race named in honour of his father and ended up with SEVEN runners in 2009 but could fare no better than third. Since then Pipe has had a further six runners without success.
A better return must surely be on the cards very soon.
has a great record in the handicap hurdles at Cheltenham with wins in the Coral
Cup and County Hurdle in recent years and he had two representatives in the top eight home in this race in 2009 and finished third with Clova Island in 2010.
The Hobbs stable regularly find excellent young jockeys and winning a race such as this would be a suitable reward for all their hard work.
Representatives from the Hobbs yard will definitely be worth considering in this race in 2013.
However, the stable with the best return so far from this race belongs to Nicky Henderson
With a winnner at 25/1 in 2009, 2nd and 4th in 2010, 3rd in 2011 and 3rd again in 2012 .It seems the master of Seven Barrows likes to have a tilt at the Martin Pipe race and Henderson's runners in 2013 will warrant very close inspection once again.
