World Hurdle 2012
Thu, Mar 15th, 2012

Big Bucks added a fourth title and confirmed his status as the outstanding staying hurdler of his generation. Voler La Vedette was the biggest danger this time. Andrew Lynch attmpted to switch the mare way from Big Bucks but Ruby Walsh was wise to the danger and covered the move. Oscar Whisky failed to stay the trip and is likely to go chasing next season after another crack at the Aintree Hurdle on Grand National Day. The full result of the 2012 World Hurdle is below :

Big Bucks is going for an unprecedented 4 in a row in this and is closing in on the sixty year old record of Sir Ken, who won 16 hurdle races in succession between 1951 and 1953. At  this stage there looks to be few chinks in his armour. Nicky Henderson's Oscar Whisky and Wille Mullins Thousand Stars looks the main dangers with Colm Murphy's mare Voler La Vedette and David Pipe's Dynaste also likely to be battling for a place. We have panelist comments from Cheltenham preview nights on our forum here.

World Hurdle Jockey Tips : Barry Geraghty, Jason Maguire, Richard Johnson and Choc Thornton have almost sixty Cheltenham Festival winners between them. You would also expect as first jockeys to have the inside track on Henderson, McCain, Hobbs and King stables. Does that mean they will be good tipsters ? We asked them for Cheltenham Festival tips and you can check out their picks here. Barry Geraghty has won this race on Iris's Gift and Robert Thornton won it in 2006 on My Way De Solzen. In this years race we expect Barry to ride last years Champion hurdle third Oscar Whisky, Featherbed Lane could be Richard Johnsons mount  but with no McCain or King entries we don't see an obvious ride for Jason Maguire or Choc Thornton.
