The feature race of the afternoon on day one of the November meeting is the Grade Two Ballymore Novices' Hurdle and what a spectacle it is set to be.We are siding with the Willie Mullins trained Hubrisko who could be a class above the English this event if taking to the step up in trip, which his pedigree suggests he will.
A much talked about horse having been bought by Rich Ricci in 2020 after winning a good event on the flat in France, he made his debut for the yard in January 2022 when third over 2m4f at Fairyhouse.
Sent to the Galway festival this term in July he was a good second of 17 in a Maiden Hurdle and at the same track in September finally got off the mark for his career in convincing fashion.
Last seen at Tipperary in October he was a good third behind stablemate Champ Kiely and Cheltenham festival winner Brazil in a Grade Three.
Stepping up in trip he will need to improve as this is a hot race but he could just be a class above the English.
