Hughes sweet on Jef­fer­son yard’s King George hope


is the most ex­cit­ing horse I’m look­ing for­ward to rid­ing this sea­son. He was amaz­ing last year, win­ning the Gold Cup at Chel­tenham and, fin­gers crossed, he will be as good this year as he’s only an eight-year-old. LA BAGUE AU ROI won for me at New­bury on Thurs­day on her first start over fences. She was a high-class mare over hur­dles last year.

IF THE CAP FITS was very good in his novice hur­dles, win­ning three out of three. He runs in the Elite Hur­dle at Wincanton to­day. A re­ally smart horse.

CLAN DES OBEAUX is a very ex­cit­ing young horse. He goes for the Bet­fair at Hay­dock. On the same af­ter­noon POLITOLOGUE runs at As­cot. It will be a tough choice. I won the Tin­gle Creek on him be­fore Sam (Twis­tonDavies) took over and ended up win­ning the Melling
