Monmiral has been foot perfect for Paul Nicholls this season race four times and winning all four of his events, but it was at Aintree that we saw his true ability when landing the Grade One Doom bar Anniversary 4-Y-O Juvenile Hurdle.
Having now taken Grade One and Two honours and and seeing off some smart horses like Adagio, Monmiral has put himself out there as the best British Juvenile in the division.
After the race Nicholls went on to explain that he would more than likely stay over hurdles next season and then go over fences the year after that.
He could be a serious player to the two mile hurdling division next term, with the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival a possible goal before taking on the bigger obstacles, where he will also have a big future.
He is very exciting recruit for the Ditcheat master trainer and he may just turn into the new flag bearer for the yard.
