Throwback Race For Wednesday - 13/01/21

Andy Dufresne

One of the feature races of the weekend comes on Sunday from Punchestown and it sees some stand out young hurdlers take to the track over two miles for the Grade Two Moscow Flyer Novices Hurdle.

In honour of the race we are taking a look back at last year's renewal and it saw a fascinating finish between two top class athletes, Captain Guinness and Andy Dufresne.

The latter for Gordon Elliott and JP McManus went on to land the event in the final stages of the race, but it saw a superb finish to a great race.

The six year old has been a horse that came to Ireland with bundles of potential and has shown glimpses of excellence without yet fulfilling how good he can be.

Landing this race is at the high point of his career and hopefully now novice chasing he looks a horse that can finally go on and do great things, being unbeaten on both his starts over the bigger obstacles.
