RACING anorak Graeme Johnston (@GraemeJ_83) is on hand to dissect the always competitive County Hurdle, the second race of Day 4 at the Cheltenham Festival.
County Handicap Hurdle| Friday 13th March 2019, 14:10 | ITV1
The County Hurdle is the big betting race of the day and one of the few handicaps of the seasons I look forward to. It's a typically wide open race however there is one here who may appreciate the drop in company from Grade 1 races.
) has spent his last seven starts in Grade 1 company and drops into handicaps here. He has a big weight but he shapes like a horse who will appreciate the test of a handicap more than a graded race. He's not short of pace, is still relatively unexposed and could use this as a return ticket to the big leagues.
