Henry And Rachel Could Be In For A Good Day

The Arkle Trophy puts the best first season chasers up against each other on their road to fame and fortune, and with winners such as Altior, Shishkin, Edwardstone, and El Fabiolo in recent years, the standard is very very high. At the moment the Irish dominate the betting with Gaelic Warrior heading the early betting, though interestingly his two wins over fences have been over further, while his last success over hurdles saw a win at three miles – so will he have the pace needed for the two miles here?

That looks a big question mark to me, big enough to take him on with Quilixios, the winner of the Triumph Hurdle here in 2021 and with a two out of three record since switching to fences, including an eye-catching display of jumping last time out at Naas. I can’t say this looks the best Arkle on paper by a long stretch, and if there is a chaser with a touch of class about him in this line-up, he may well be it.
