The Hunters Chase again looked between the two market principals, Salsify and Tammys Hill both went off 3/1 joint favourites, the race did not disappoint. Tammys Hill was held up just off the pace, Salsify given his customary patient ride by Colman Sweeney. Tammys Hill jumped the last in front, but was strongly pressed by Salsify who just prevailed on the run in, it was another top class race in terms of excitement.
Salsify will now head to the Foxhunters at Cheltenham, a race he won last year. He shares favouritism with the second horse that day, the Paul Nicholls trained Chapoturgeon, at around the 9/2 mark. I think this represents pretty good value and it is my NAP of the festival in March.
