Throwback Race For Tuesday - 23/02/21


This weekend sees some super racing at Kempton and one fo the feature races is the Grade Adonis Hurdle that last year was won by the Paul Nicholls trained Solo.

Back in February 2020 it was thought that Nicholls had showed off all of his Cheltenham team ahead of the festival, but had one last card to play.

Solo had joined the yard from the well known Guillaume Macaire, who has been responsible for most of the top exploits coming over from France to Britain over the years.

Solo, having raced twice in France finishing second and winning on his final start before his British debut at Kempton, not many knew what to expect.

However, he gave one of the most dominating performances in the juvenile division, landing the Grade Two event by 13 lengths and looking like a superb prospect.

Although his career has not worked out since, his run in this event will always be remembered and hopefully he can fulfil his potential later on in his career.
