SUERTE AL SALTO
Kempton 3.55 WIN
Champion trainer Paul Nicholls and top Irish jockey Ruby Walsh team up to join the cast assembling at Kempton today for a hastily-arranged card of Bumper races for National Hunt horses starved of action by the snow and ice. One of their best hopes of success is this novice hurdler, a six-year-old son of Old Vic owned by Paul Barber. He’s expected to have benefited from a two-month break since a couple of promising performances at Taunton in November when he was touched off into second despite travelling extremely well. Nicholls believes the Polytrack surface will suit him better than testing ground on Turf, while the return to 2m round a sharpish track should help too.
