Nicky Henderson & JP McManus Eye-Up Cheltenham Bonus


Trainer Nicky Henderson has not been far from the horse racing headlines this week, with health concerns over Champion Hurdle favourite Constitution Hill. Nonetheless, he’ll aim for a winning weekend when Under Control lines up in the Morebattle Hurdle at Kelso on Saturday.

The JP McManus-owned mare is the antepost favourite for the race, and success in the Scottish Borders, coupled with a win at the Cheltenham Festival, would see connections land a £100,000 bonus.

Under Control

2:50pm Kelso (Saturday)

Last seen when placing 2nd at Doncaster when splitting Grade 1 winners Ashroe Diamond and Gala Marceau, Under Control runs off a mark of 138 on Saturday.

Her stand-out piece of form is her Sandown victory in April over stablemate and subsequent Greatwood Hurdle and Betfair Hurdle winner Iberico Lord, now rated 143.

Under Control looks good value to add to Nicky Henderson’s excellent strike rate at Kelso - the Seven Barrows handler has a 48% win rate with 15 winners from 31 runners at the track over the years, including winning the Morebattle with Simonsig and Top Notch.

A win at Kelso on Saturday would likely see Under Control then head to the Cheltenham Festival, where she is currently 12/1 for the County Hurdle.
