Ballymore Novices' Hurdle 2021 Result

13:20 Wednesday 17 March 2021

BALLYMORE NOVICES' HURDLE (Baring Bingham) (Grade 1) (1)

Distance: 2m 5f (Old)
Prize: £52,753 Age: 4yo+ Race Type: Hurdle Going: Gd/Sft

As with the Supreme the day before, this was the smallest field assembled for the Baring Bingham in its current form, but similarly it was very much a case of quality over quantity, with 3 last-time-out winners of Grade 1 novices in opposition, and it produced a winner of almost limitless potential, Bob Olinger, just the most gorgeous chasing type to look at, who ran to a level at least on a par with such recent victors as Envoi Allen, Samcro, Faugheen and The New One, behind only Simonsig among winners in the last decade, every chance that he will reach some of the heights that quintet have done; the race was soundly run and there were no obvious excuses for the beaten horses, though Bear Ghylls would have finished closer with even a halfway fluent round of jumping.

All 7 ran. Hurdles: 10.

Winning Owner: Robcour

Time: 5m 6.5s
