World Hurdle (Thursday)

Big Bucks is our bogey in the race.

We’re happy to continue laying him along with Annie Power on the day.

More of That, Rule the World and Celestial Halo are all horses we’ll be looking to have running for us on the day. It’s a race that could well throw up a surprise winner.
