Throwback Race For Thursday - 17/12/20

Long Walk Hurdle

The Long Walk Hurdle on Saturday is now just days away and we have taken a look back at last year's renewal that saw a horse take the event at a bit of a surprise.

The nine year old The Worlds End for Tom George stole the show last term, with only four runners heading to post due to the heavy ground, which also saw the reigning champion before that Paisley Park withdrawn.

Now called the Marsh Hurdle, The Grade One event always sets up the prices for the Stayers' Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival, but last year it was not the case.

This was the first and his since been the last win in a Grade One event for the horse that has suffered with slight setbacks since his win in this race, but could be back to defend his crown on Saturday.
