Tuesday 26 December 1995
His trainer, Tom Foley, now has the AIG Europe Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown in February as the gelding's first target. He will also enter Danoli for the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham and William Hill were quick to reinstate the horse into a market on the race that has been weakened by withdrawals and disappointments. They make him a 6-1 chance for Cheltenham, behind Alderbroook, at 11-4, and Montelado, at 9-2. The last-named is likely to be partnered by Jamie Osborne for the first time when he contests tomorrow's Christmas Hurdle at Kempton as Richard Dunwoody prefers to ride at Leopardstown.
