The Grade One Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot is set to feature some of the big names in the stayers hurdle division with Paisley Park and Thyme Hill set to do battle again, but there is another horse that has come under some serious market support for the event.

The David Pipe trained Main Fact has been a superstar yardstick and is now looking to land 10 consecutive wins for his trainer and punters believe he has a huge chance moving from 8/1 into 9/2 in the space of 24 hours.

The training performance from the Pipe team has been tremendous with the seven year old, staying on from a horrible position to land the Grade Three Stayers' Handicap Hurdle last time out.

The gelding had been running on both the flat and over hurdles and having up 15lb for this run, many thought that it would be impossible for him to win on his latest start.

However, with the heavy ground coming it saw off the challenge of some of the more prominent runners in the market and left Main Fact to power up the straight to victory.

This saw him land nine straight races in a row having been superb on both the flat and over hurdles this term and now Pipe is dreaming big with his stable star.
