    2018 County Hurdle

    Have had a little tickle on Campeador in this at 20s. Was running a mighty race in the Fred Winter before coming down at the last, and I assume he'll be aimed here. Anyone else got any plays yet in this race? The likes of Elgin, Mick Jazz, Charli Parcs and even Defi Du Seuil could end up here

    Usually I'd discount Campeador due to his lofty rating and the fact he'll be close to top weight, however, last years winner was top weight and the runner up carried the second top weight.

    Outside the usual suspects, Duca De Thaix is the only handicapper I've added for this season although he could step up in trip to the Pipe race or Coral Cup.

    If they get Mick Jazz there off his current mark then he'd be a major player.

    Will just add i haven't backed any of them, just my shortlist

    I think bleu et rouge is very well handicapped on his runs over hurdles his run at Aintree behind buveur dair reads extremely well to his rating.

    High bridge ran a mighty race behind Elgin before tiring late on the form has worked out very well so far and I could see him going very well. Off his current mark

    Mick jazz claims speak for itself.

    The others are on very fair hurdle marks compared to there chase form, and showed enough over hurdles.

    Thinking of backing Mick Jazz who does look rock solid off a decent mark then leaving it at that for this one til we know a bit more after Xmas. Ball D’Arc will be backed whichever race he’s aimed at, think he’s long had a win at the top level in him

    With no mention of Srtic Fire this side of Christmas it would be interesting if they tried the same again with him

    Would be interested in what weight he’d be given too, last year they dropped him a stone

    Jenkins could now be a plot for this race, he could get in at a feather weight. Ignore his last run on soft, he should fair better on decent ground and now he has seen the track. I heard he is a different animal this season.

    Visually it looks that way, but he has had a small wind op.
