Champion jockey Tony McCoy is on board the latest selection from the stable of Scoop Racing (Richard Silverwood):
Tuesday 30th October
Taunton 2.30 WIN
Nicky Henderson has made a solid start to the new jumps season in his quest to unseat Paul Nicholls and become champion trainer for the first time for 25 years. And here, he unleashes a young novice chaser he has high hopes of. When first arriving from France, the grey finished runner-up to the very smart Zarkandar, who went on to land the 2011 Triumph Hurdle and finish fifth in this year’s Champion Hurdle. Molotof also reeled off a hat-trick of wins in novice hurdles last term and although his campaign tailed off, Henderson has always considered that he is bred and built for chasing. This will be no easy debut over the larger obstacles but his class should see him home, particularly with champion jockey Tony McCoy in the plate.
MONDAY: FICKLE FORTUNE 2ND
SUNDAY: VENDOR PULLED UP
