"2.55 1 pt – 1 I Like To Move It
There’s not the quality to this season’s Greatwood field that there usually is and, though it’s a really competitive handicap as usual, there’s just a feeling that the higher-weighted ones could dominate in such a field. Top-weight I Like To Move It seems sure to run well. He progressed into a useful novice last season, running his best race when edged out by the narrowest of margins in the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury. His disappointing effort in the County afterwards is easily excused and there’s a strong chance he’ll have had this as his target for some time given his good record when fresh. He’s sure to be ridden prominently – which is more likely to be an advantage than not – and has a first-rate attitude if he’s still thereabouts after the last. "
I LIKE TO MOVE IT Won 17/2
Unibet Greatwood Hurdle (Premier Handicap) (1), Cheltenham, Sun 13 Nov 2022
What happened? Individual runner report written after race reads:
"made a sparkling return from 8 months off, putting a disappointing final run of his novice campaign firmly behind him, and is entitled to have his sights set on the Champion Hurdle at this stage, likely to take plenty of beating in the International Hurdle back here next month; disputed lead, not fluent first, went on soon after second, joined briefly 2 out (usual 3 out), asserted final 1f, stayed on well."
