Kalanisi - Recent Black Type Progeny

Katchit has run two very encouraging races in his first two starts outside of his own age group.

The first of these runs was in the Grade 1 Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle on December 1st and he finished a gallant 3rd behind seasoned Grade 1 performers Harchibald and Al Eile. Having made a mistake at the last hurdle Katchit was running on again at the finish in his true determined style.

Most recently, Katchit finished 2nd in the Grade 2 Bula Hurdle at Cheltenham on December 15th. The front running Osana proved victorious at the finish and Katchit was the only horse to challenge him. Behind him on this occasion were other Champion Hurdle contenders Sublimity, Afsoun and Straw Bear.

Katchit’s next run will be in the Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton in February before he attempts to upstage his elders in the Champion Hurdle in March.

European Dream has also run two gallant races in defeat in black type races recently. Finishing 3rd in both the Paddy Power Listed Hurdle and Gerry Feilden Listed Hurdle, European Dream has come up against some very well handicapped novice hurdlers. His turn should come shortly and hopefully he will win the big pot that he deserves.
