Heading the market for Willie Mullins and Cheveley Park is 7 year old Sir Gerhard.
Showing what he was made of last season by setting the bumper division alight, he captured a listed bumper before winning the Champion bumper at the festival last year. Beating stablemate Kilcruit before that form was reversed at Punchestown.
He’s a perfect two from two over hurdles this season. Making a late debut over timber saw him win his maiden hurdle in December at Leopardstown before winning a Grade 1 at the same venue during the Dublin Racing Festival.
His form certainly sets the standard but he’s yet to tackle 2.5 miles and has stamina to prove.
