Ascot Hurdle Trends
Sat, Nov 24th, 2012

The Ascot Hurdle is a  Grade 2 Hurdle over an intermediate distance of 2 miles 3 and a half furlongs. Previous winners include horses that have won both the Champion Hurdle over 2 miles (Hardy Eustace) and World Hurdle over three miles (Baracouda) at the Cheltenham Festival.

The 2011 winner Overturn went on to finish second in the Champion Hurdle and also landed the Grade 1 Fighting Fifth Hurdle duringthat season.

Oscar Whisky was a comfortable winner of the 2012 Ascot Chase confirming his status as the leading two and a half mile hurdler in the UK. Post race trainer Nicky Henderson and jockey Barry Geraghty suggested a crack at the 2013 Champion Hurdle if the ground turned up soft was a possibility.
