Friday's Throwback Race Of The Day - 05/03/21


Today's throwback race of the day is looking back at the 2020 Triumph Hurdle with Goshen looking set to land festival glory for his trainer Gary Moore, but unfortunately unseated his rider at the final hurdle.

The race on the Friday of last year's meeting gave one of the biggest pieces of drama we have seen in years, matching the likes of Benie Des Dieux and Annie Power.

Burning Victory for Willie Mullins went on to snatch the race in the final furlong with the smart Aspire Tower and Dan Skelton's Allmankind picked up the places.

However, the winner off this race will not be remembered and it will always be look back on as the race that got away for Goshen having been 10 lengths clear jumping the last.

It was thought he would never get back to his best having ran poorly on the flat twice and finished last of a big field in the International Hurdle.

However, last month he got back to form in emphatic style when landing the Grade Two Kingwell Hurdle and he is now 4/1 into takes the Champion Hurdle.
