The British Stallion Studs EBF “National Hunt” Novices’ Hurdle (Qualifier) 2m 3f looked a fair contest, the Paul Nicholls trained Arenice Et Pictons was made a short priced favourite but sadly he had to be pulled up after the fifth. The Venetia Williams trained BURTONSWELL ridden by Aiden Coleman could have been called the winner two from home he jumped and stayed on very well to win comfortably on debut beating Buckhorn Timothy by 3 lengths.
2.20: Paul Nicholls introduces French import ARENICE ET PICTONS who finished third over hurdles at Auteuil in April we expect him to make it a winning British debut here. Point winner Sykes makes his hurdling debut and could pose a threat, the main danger appears to be Harry Fry’s Polamco who won a bumper at the third time of asking and makes his hurdling debut too.
