Watch: World Hurdle Hopeful Thistlecrack wins the Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham

Watch: Thistlecrack wins the Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham to put him right in World Hurdle Contention for the 2016 Festival. Now 13/8.

A very impressive performance indeed.


Trainer Colin Tizzard told RacingUK:

[blockquote source=”Colin Tizzard”]He was brilliant. He powered up that hill against really top-class opposition.

“It’s a World Hurdle qualifier and he’s won it without coming off the bridle.

“At home he works like that and he’s done it on the track.

“Nothing can stay with him any more on the gallops at home.”

Scudamore said: “He’s laid down a pretty big marker.

“That was a tremendous feeling, hopefully we can do the same in five or six weeks’ time.

“You can ride him however you want to ride him – he gives you so much confidence.

“He’s just fantastic.”
