Might Bite makes Henderson proud

Nicky Henderson was proud of his Might Bite finishing runner-up in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. He said: “He hung on, he had his crack, he didn't go right, he didn't duck out, he didn't shirk it. It was great and we're proud of him, his jumping was fantastic even considering that ground.”

Racing at Uttoxeter to go ahead

Going heavy. Hurdles on inside on ground not raced on for four months. Chase fences at full width with fresh ground on inside.

Today’s teasers…

“She won an ordinary race the other day and this doesn’t look much better, therefore, I’d be hopeful she would be up to winning this – it will be a wasted journey to Fontwell with just the one runner if she didn’t!”

Nicky Henderson, Big Robin

“He won a jumpers bumper on the all-weather at Kempton last time and is a horse who will ply his trade well throughout the summer. He’ll be given a handicap mark after this and then we will know where we stand. He’s in good heart though, fit and well, and should run a nice race.”

Nicky Henderson, Grapevine


Lambourn’s recent successes

Heresmynumber (2/1)

5.10 Fakenham | March 16

“Ran well on his debut over fences last time at Leicester. The extra furlong and soft ground should be in his favour. It’s not the strongest of races so fingers crossed he goes close.”

Ali Stronge

Morney Wing (9/1)

4.35 Fakenham | March 16

“He’s run well around Fakenham and has won there before. He’s had an in and out season so we’re hopeful rather than confident. He’d have some sort of chance.”

Charlie Mann

Alifax (2/1)

4.20 Lingfield | March 16

“Disappointing with him earlier in the week, but Southwell can do that. I think he will prefer this surface, but I don’t think is screamingly well handicapped. We will chuck him out there and hope he’s got a chance.”
