BALLYMORE NOVICES’ HURDLE WEDNESDAY 1.20
1. Uhtred 2. Bob Olinger 3. Gaillard Du Mesnil I’ve been following the Joseph O’brien-trained Uhtred since his impressive bumper debut win at Fairyhouse in 2019. Although only fourth on his sole run over hurdles last month in a Listed race at Punchestown, he would have been in need of the run having been off the track for 427 days. Connections have always spoken highly of him and he could run a big race at a decent price. Bob Olinger has impressed in each of his runs at 2m4f and looks an obvious danger.
