It is fair to conclude, that Paul Nicholls certainly had a very Merry Christmas with as many as fifteen winners in the past fourteen days.
One of which was Quel Destin in the Grade One Coral Finale Juvenile Hurdle at Chepstow on the 27th December. Having virtually made all, the french-bred 3yo jumped fluently around the long-galloping circuit and responded well to strong pressure in a dual to the line with Adjali.
He was always holding his rival, and has since jumped the Nicky Henderson 3yo in the JCB Triumph market at the Cheltenham Festival.
It is now four wins in a row for the grey; Quel Destin.
