Might Bite Set For Racecourse Return

Might Bite

Nicky Henderson believes he has penciled in the return date for his 2017 King George VI winner Might Bite hoping that his choice of race can spark a revival in his form which has dipped over the past few seasons.

The Cheltenham Gold Cup second back in 2018 has not been the same horse since that season where he rounded off his campaign off in style to land the Betway Bowl at Aintree.

The 10 year old has won four Grade One races during his esteemed career including a Cheltenham festival winner in one of the most dramatic RSA Chases since the race was established.

Henderson is hoping more than anything to get his chaser back to his best and hopefully challenging in the big Grade Ones this season and believes his jumping is the thing he needs to focus on being his best attribute.

Might Bite has two options of where to have his seasonal Bow with his trainer and jockey Nico De Boinville considering Huntingdon for the Peterborough Chase at a shorter trip and also Aintree for the Many Clouds Chase.

(Credit At The Races) “The whole demeanour about him at the moment is his jumping,” said Henderson.

“He used to be the most spectacular horse. He used to bowl along in front and he had them all off the bridle a long way out, just because his jumping took him there.

“Last season he never jumped as well as he did before. That is why we let him jump five fences today and he has been very good. He has got that part of his mojo is back.

“Nico (de Boinville) wants to come back to two and a half miles and we don’t often disagree. However, he thinks the Peterborough would suit him and I think the Many Clouds at Aintree would be the right race for him. That is the time of year he will appear.”
