JCB Triumph Hurdle Form Guide

Previous winners such as Katchit and Detroit City highlighted how their form in the build up to the race was important to allowing punters the opportunity to pick out the winner. We often see a decent sized field in the Triumph with plenty of excellent young juveniles hoping to make the big step up at the Festival.

We have been following the main contenders right through the season, all of the well backed horses are featured from their first run right through until the Cheltenham Festival. One race that we focused on this year is the Juvenile Novices' Hurdle trial at the Cheltenham trials day, we often see some nice types in this one and we are expecting this year to be no different.

2014 JCB Triumph Hurdle Latest Form

Race OverviewAn open-looking renewal, especially in the absence of key trial winners Le Rocher and Activial. Paul Nicholls knows what's needed for this and there has long been an infectious wave of optimism behind Calipto, while Guitar Pete is a battle-hardened winner of the significant Leopardstown pointer that's provided the last three Irish-trained winners. However, drying conditions only further heighten interest in BROUGHTON, a classy customer off the Flat who looked destined for bigger things when doing everything right in his prep race at Musselburgh. John Quinn has a handy pair with Pearl Castle and Rutherglen potential players, as is Plinth.[Alistair Whitehouse-Jones]

3-3 in Ireland but doesn't smack of a potential Triumph winner.. French recruit and never headed in winning three times in Ireland, accounting for shorter-priced stablemate Adriana Des Mottes by diminishing half length at Fairyhouse most recently; possibly pinched it that day under Paul Townend and flashing of the tail under pressure didn't go unnoticed; trainer reportedly worried about drying ground but Ruby Walsh has switched from the second and respected on that alone.

Useful on the Flat and won impressively at Musselburgh last time.. Eyecatching Flat RPR of 95 when winning at Glorious Goodwood for Mark Johnston (stayed 1m4f and versatile ground-wise); narrowly beaten in a Grade 2 on hurdling debut before making light work of the opposition on soft ground at Musselburgh, the bare form of which (through the second) puts him on a par with Guitar Pete; encouragingly slick in his jumping then and could be happier than a good many on this drying ground; deserves to be prominent in the betting.

Impressive in winning twice at Newbury and still unexposed.. Joined Paul Nicholls after finishing second on sole French start; rather mixed messages as regards the form of his two Newbury wins (on good to soft and heavy), beating subsequent Adonis winner Activial the first time but the horse he then defeated, his elder admittedly, was well held in last weekend's Imperial Cup; not hard pressed to win either mind and regard in which he's held by trainer who knows what's required for this needs respecting.

CommentGuitar Pete

Experienced Irish raider who won a Grade 1 last time out.. No great shakes on the Flat but much better hurdler and improved since gaining valuable course experience when second here in November; now has the benefit of six runs behind him and best effort yet to win with some authority Leopardstown's Grade 1 Spring Hurdle, in which Ireland's last three winners of this finished first past the post; that was truly run and, while a better effort from fourth-placed Ivan Grozny in Wednesday's Fred Winter would have been welcomed, he should be in the mix for last year's successful yard.

Limitations exposed in three defeats since Sandown win.. Won by a street at Sandown in November but that was a weak race and had his limitations exposed in the meantime, unable to repel outsider Ballyglasheen here the following month and since then he's been playing second fiddle to long-time favourite for this Le Rocher; doesn't have that one to worry about this time but would be surprise winner.

Last seen beating Guitar Pete at Gowran in October.. Should not be ruled out having already taken the notable scalp of Guitar Pete but that was back in October and fair to say the runner-up has improved a good bit in the meantime; also rare for this to be won on the back of such a lengthy absence.

CommentPearl Castle

Won his last two, particularly impressive on first occasion.. It was only because he was so impressive in beating a big field at Doncaster in January that his win back there last month was a tad disappointing, beating a horse who had previously offered no threat to likes of Royal Irish Hussar and Tiger Roll; was giving him 7lb admittedly, had to overcome a mistake three out and tacky ground wouldn't have been ideal for dual good-ground winner on the Flat; will appeal to many each-way.

Interesting on this stiffer track and with cheekpieces applied.. Had the cheekpieces on when gaining sole success for Ballydoyle (at 1m5f) and headgear absent in winning at Leopardstown in December and again back there last time when confirming form with the horse he beat in his maiden but finishing behind Guitar Pete and Tiger Roll; will need to jump better than that day but could well do so with headgear reapplied and this more galloping track should benefit him too; interesting.

3-4 over hurdles and freshened up since below par last time.. Hardly looked a potential Triumph winner when scraping home at Market Rasen in September but impressive next time and then would have beaten Guitar Pete in a Grade 2 here with more in hand but for a late mistake; not his form when long way behind Broughton at Doncaster in December but been freshened up for this by trainer seeking sixth success in the race.

Tough sort unbeaten for current yard and needs respecing.. Likeable type with the right attitude and after rattling off a hat-trick of juvenile wins at Wetherby, Bangor and Musselburgh (on ground from good/soft to soft) he warmed up for this with 2m handicap success back on the AW (runner-up midfield in Wednesday's Coral Cup); unbeaten for his yard and assured stamina could count for a lot.

Big improvement to finish second to Guitar Pete last time.. Bought for 80,000GBP after winning five-runner juvenile event at Market Rasen in November (soft) but that looked money well spent when chasing home the more experienced Guitar Pete in Grade 1 at Leopardstown in February, beaten just over 2l despite fluffing the final flight; could find the necessary improvement to have a squeak.

May reverse recent form with Abbyssial but not fancied to win it.. Horse she beat at Punchestown in December remains a maiden over hurdles but she did win by some 18l and at Fairyhouse last time finished strongly behind stablemate Abbyssial, who unquestionably enjoyed the run of the race up front; can make a case for her reversing that form but Ruby Walsh presumably disagrees having jumped ship.

February 2014

Musselburgh played host to its Cheltenham trials day recently and the most impressive performance of the day came from Broughton. The John Ferguson trained juvenile won the Scottish Triumph Hurdle Trial in good style ahead of Clarcam. Broughton was beaten a head by Fox Norton at Doncaster last time out but he got his head in front here to win five lengths. It was very testing conditions which should be noted and while he will need to improve to win at the Festival, there is no doubt that he deserves to take his chance.

The Spring Juvenile Hurdle on Irish Hennessy day at Leopardstown is always a classy race and we saw a very impressive performance from Guitar Pete. Dessie Hughes on this race last season with Our Conor and he followed up with Guitar Pete who ran well from the front in testing conditions. Tiger Roll ran well to finis in second place while the well fancied Plinth jumped terrible but still stayed on ok to claim a third place. Pre-race favourite Ivan Grozny just didn't pick up for Ruby Walsh and he was the disappointment of the race with the Triumph Hurdle in mind.

Paul Nicholls is having another strong season and his top juvenile Calipto once again proved himself to be top class at Newbury. He won the Betfair Novices Hurdle in bottomless ground over two miles on super Saturday. He quickened up well to pull clear of Little Jon and while he does hold an entry for the Supreme, he is likely to head to the Triumph were he has leading claims.

The Adonis Hurdle is perhaps the best Triumph Hurdle trial in terms of recent winners and that ensures that this year's winner, Activial, has to be a major threat at the Festival. The Harry Fry trained horse was beaten by Calipto earlier in the season but looked to be better this time as he pulled clear of the field to win the Adonis for Harry Fry. Commissioned ran well for John Ferguson in second place but he was no match for the winner and although he was rightly cut for the Triumph Hurdle after this win, Fry did say that he is not a definite Cheltenham runner at this stage.

January 2014

Willie Mullins has another potential Triumph Hurdle horse in his yard this season in the form of the the highly exciting Ivan Grozny. The former French flat horse won his first race over hurdles at Naas recently in the Book Hospitality On Line Maiden Hurdle over two miles. It was a highly impressive win, albeit in maiden company, and the feeling is that this horse could still be anything. He hacked up that day in testing conditions which should be noted and following the injury to Analifet, Ivan Grozny could be the first string for Mullins in the Triumph Hurdle.

John Quinn won the Triumph Hurdle with Countrywide Flame a few years back and he looks to have a nice juvenile on his hands once again this season in the form of Rutherglen. The former flat horse has taken to hurdles well and he picked up another impressive win at Musselburgh on New Years Day. Conceding weight, Rutherglen scooted clear up the run-in when asked too and while the field didn't look too strong, there could be more to come from this exciting juvenile.

The Triumph Hurdle trial on Trials day at Cheltenham is always of interest with the Festival in mind and we saw a very taking performance from Le Rocher. The Nick Williams trained juvenile pulled well clear of Kentucky Hyden in testing conditions to win by ten lengths in the end. He looks to be improving with every run and proved he was happy in heavy ground and will be bidding to become the first horse since Katchit in 2007 to follow up a win here with a win at the Festival in March.

December 2013

Willie Mullins nearly always has a nice juvenile or two in his powerful yard and that is certainly the case this season. The classy Analifet won her second race of the season at Fairyhouse at the start of the month with Ruby Walsh almost motionless on-board the horse. The former French horse, now owned by Gigginstown, looked a class act as she skipped clear of the field in the Juvenile Hurdle and with more improvement likely to come, she is very much a leading contender in the Triumph Hurdle betting.

November 2013

Nicky Henderson always has a nice juvenile on his hands and that looks to be the case once again this season. The Champion Trainer saddled Kentucky Hyden to a winning debut success at Sandown in the Movember Spitfire Ale Juvenile Hurdle. The French recruit simply hacked up to alert punters to his class and although it is too early to see what he beat, it certainly looks as though he could be a live Triumph contender.

There was more success for Nicky Henderson in the Juvenile division at the Cheltenham Open Meeting with Royal Irish Hussar making it two wins from two this season. Under a good ride from Barry Geraghty, Royal Irish Hussar won the JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial in good style from Guitar Pete to see his Festival price trimmed and it remains to seen if he is as good as his stable mate, Kentucky Hyden.

Paul Nicholls has been the master of bringing French recruits to England over the last few years and he could have another one this season in the form of Calipto. The juvenile had his first run in the UK at Newbury during the Hennessy meeting and he impressed to win by just under four lengths. He showed a good turn of foot to move clear of the field and while it is difficult to asses the form of the Newbury race, Calipto is certainly one to watch ahead of the Triumph Hurdle.
