Ballymore Novices Hurdle 2022 Preview

The Ballymore is always a fascinating clash between those novices not thought good enough to tackle the Supreme, but for that reason it is a very light ante-post betting heat, with the running plans of all those at the head of the market still not decided until the final declarations a few days before.

At this stage the progressive Ginto seems the most likely contender for the all-conquering Gordon Elliott stable, impressing in the way he landed hefty cash in Graded company in Ireland in January.

JOURNEY WITH ME

Henry de Bromhead’s 6-y-o has created a deep impression in winning both of his starts over hurdles so far, looking a stayer in the making at Leopardstown and Naas (landing hefty market confidence each time). This increased test of stamina is exactly what he needs, and he makes far more appeal than the short-priced favourite Sir Gerhard (jumping a definite concern and did not impress in that regard when gifted a soft lead last time out).

Ballymore Novices Hurdle Winners

Irish trainers have dominated the Grade 1 Ballymore hurdle since 2010, with 8 winners going back across the Channel, and it looks likely to be a similar story in 2022 with the front of the market packed with highly regarded Mullins and Elliott novices. In 2020 a future champion emerged as the top class Envoi Allen stormed clear up the hill, and he is now a progressive chaser, while it was a similar tale in 2021 as Bob Olinger landed a hefty public gamble in style under Rachael Blackmore.
