    Now NJH is contemplating sending Altior for the Dovecot which would mean 5 runs/possible wins prior to Cheltenham. The Likes of Lami Serge SS and Grandouet were never asked to go to the well that often before the Festival.

    Must be one tough cookie but you have to wonder if he's striking while the iron is hot and doesn't see him as good enough for the Festival..

    Maybe he does. Either that or he thinks he has a better one. The only other Supreme candidate he has that I can think of is Buveur D'air. Is there anything else that springs to mind?

    In fact he seems to be lacking his usual ammunition with his novice hurdlers now I think of it.

    The Nicky Henderson Thread

    He's been on than since early December I think. He does 'The Road to Cheltenham' blog for Stan James every weekend. Their racing ambassadors are him, Richard Johnson & Davy Russell.

    There looks like a decent handicap hurdle at Catterick next week, Hendo has Cup Final running, his last race in mid December looks good form going by events since.

    Pity we're not seeing Baden at Ascot tomorrow. Left a favourable impression on me when 2nd at Cheltenham on his debut running green.

    I'm sure NJH has his reasons but it does seem like a lot of his are being pulled out of possible engagements at the moment. Possibly the ground but he's not blaming that for P&C to name but one

    But my second hobby is cryptic crosswords. Trying to decipher Hendo is like trying to do the Mephisto.

    well its getting to the point where it don't matter what he says..because he just seems scared to run horses

    i wonder if its traineritis..a bit like dartitis..he is ok entering horses..but when it comes to running them....he just can't let go

    I think that has some truth in it. The tears etc after big wins are sheer relief that he hasn't gone at the game. The domination of Mullins probably hurts more for him with the likes of Munir having dipped their toe with him. He is genuinely scared to lose with his dwindling number of top class horses

    Nicky is not running many horses at the moment for the same reason Jonjo isn't. Sh!tty ground and waether.

    Peace and Co, Altior, Buveur D'Air, MTOY, Sprinter Sacre, Hargam, Top Notch, Bobs Worth, Ma Filleule and Simonsig are all on course for Cheltenham. There are trainers who would kill for that lot to be moved into their yard.

    Things don't always work out as planned but the situation was Peace and co Hargam Top Notch and MTOY were all potential Champion Hurdle horses so had he bought a bundle of novices this preseason and the developed into the same......what a mess that could turn into. Could still do with the 2 novices he has now both potential Supreme winners

    So they cleaned up 7 barrows getting rid of over 50 horses and buying less than normal pre season but that was through choice.

    As soon as is neccessary they have the space to refill and the clients so don't worry NJH is going nowhere and will continue to top the million pound mark every season for the foreseeable future.

    I think of Hendo as the Daniel Sturridge of racing
