The JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial race is the first race for the juvenile runners kicking off at 12:55. This is a
stepping-stone for the beginners at which any winner will certainly make way to success through out the
It has been observed that the previous 6 runners from the JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial were taken from the
top. Therefore, punters would need to look at the favorites and other horses that have better odds.
One of the favorites for this year’s JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial is Baby Mix who recently won the
Cheltenham in December, 2011. Other favorite contender is Grumeti trained by Alan King also made a
triumph when he won the debut over hurdles for Totequadpot Novices Hurdle at Taunton in December
and can surely show impressive results throughout the season.
Grumeti has made some success on flat races and can certainly win the JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial.
However, He lost his unbeaten record at Newbery but promises to perform wonders for the JCB
Other runners listed in this race include Sadlers Risk, Minsk, Ranjaan, Ut De Sivola, Hinterland, Dildar,
Urbain De Sivola, Darroun. Phillip Hobbs has the exciting Sadlers Risk in his yard this season who after
some good performances on the flat has now taken to hurdles. The horse made his jumping debut in the
Juvenile Hurdle at Kempton and he simply hacked up to outclass the field and enter the Triumph Hurdle
picture. Sadlers Risk is likely to have a couple more runs before the Festival and he looks a horse to keep
an eye on.
The Highclere owned Ranjaan looks like a potential Triumph Hurdle contender after two good wins
recently for Paul Nicholls. The horse was an expensive buy but he looks a talent after he won at
Kempton over Christmas before following up at Taunton in the Betfair Handicap Hurdle more recently.
Like so many at this level he could still be anything at this stage but he has shown potential and seems
to be improving which is a good sign for Triumph
