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.

Triumph Hurdle Preview

Great rivals Nicky Henderson and Paul Nicholls have taken five of the last eight runnings of the Triumph between them but Alan King may be the main trainer to follow in this race with two wins, two seconds and a third since 2005.
