Perfect start for Willie Mullins when landing 18-runner maiden against her own sex at Clonmel in January. Received age allowance on that occasion and bare form is ordinary.

Analyst's Verdict

The fact that SIR EREC managed to finish placed in Group 2 company on just his fifth Flat start marks him down as out of the ordinary for the division and his easy Spring Juvenile Hurdle win (by 6 lengths from Gardens of Babylon) is the best form on offer. The Paul Nicholls trained pair Quel Destin and Pic d'Orhy have had contrasting preparations for this but both are interesting.

Open exclusively to horses aged four years, the Triumph Hurdle is the most prestigious event in the jumps calendar to be contested only by juveniles (in National Hunt racing, ‘juvenile’ generally refers to a horse turning four years old during the season in question, though some horses begin hurdling a year earlier).

First run in 1939 at the now defunct Hurst Park racecourse in Surrey, it was moved to Cheltenham’s April meeting in 1965, before finally becoming a Festival fixture in 1968.

Nowadays, as the first event on the biggest day of the Festival, runners in the Triumph Hurdle are sent on their way with the ‘Cheltenham Roar’, from over 70,000 racegoers.

With the race being less than 100 yards further than the Champion Hurdle, which is run on the Old Course, Triumph Hurdle winners are often viewed as future Champion Hurdle contenders, and four horses have gone on to win both: Clair Soleil (1953 and 1955), Persian War (1967 and 1968/69/70), Kribensis (1988 and 1990) and Katchit (2007 and 2008).

With that said, most National Hunt horses are introduced to hurdle races over shorter trips of around two miles, before ever being raced over larger obstacles, or longer distances.

With the competitors being so early on in their careers, the Triumph Hurdle might be considered as much an early indicator of precocious talent over fences, as it is over hurdles – especially when you consider that the 2014 winner, Tiger Roll , went on to win the 2018 Grand National as well as National Hunt Chase and Cross Country Chase at the 2017 and 2018 Cheltenham Festivals, respectively.

Although Tiger Roll is probably the highest-achieving, and undoubtedly the best-known Triumph Hurdle winner of recent years, the 2016 renewal did manage to showcase another future Festival winner, and top-class chaser, in the shape of Footpad .

Third-placed in the Triumph Hurdle and fourth-placed in the subsequent year’s Champion Hurdle, Footpad went on to go unbeaten in the 2017/18 season, including a resounding 14-length victory in the 2018 Arkle Challenge Trophy – the Festival’s and the National Hunt calendar’s pre-eminent two-mile novice chase.

As far as human accomplishments are concerned, it is Barry Geraghty who holds the record for most Triumph Hurdle wins as a jockey, with five: Spectroscope (2003), Zaynar (2009), Soldatino (2010), Peace And Co (2015) and Ivanovich Gorbatov (2016).

Nicky Henderson has recorded the most wins as a trainer, going one better than Geraghty, with six, though teaming up with the Irishman for three of those. Henderson’s wins are: First Bout (1985), Alone Success (1987), Katarino (1999), Zaynar (2009), Soldatino (2010) and Peace And Co (2015).
