2022 Hyde Novices' Hurdle Entries

Paul Nicholls' stable is currently in red-hot form and the Champion Trainer has already confirmed Hermes Allen for Friday's main event. Nicholls' paid £350k to purchase this winning Irish point-to-pointer for Ged Mason, John Hales and Sir Alex Ferguson last December and Hermes Allen looked exciting when opening his account at Stratford last month.

Weveallbeencaught beat Collectors Item in a bumper at Newbury back in March and he could make his hurdles debut in this Grade Two. Fellow entrant, Collectors Item ran out an impressive winner of a novice hurdle at Chepstow last month, beating a Paul Nicholls runner who won impressively at Wincanton over the weekend.

Irish raiders enjoyed plenty of success at the Showcase Meeting here at Cheltenham racecourse last month, and they're well represented again. Willie Mullins and Rich Ricci could run Hubrisko, with Gordon Elliott likely to run Music Drive, who was beaten here at Cheltenham racecourse last month.

Andrew Slattery has handed an entry to recent Listed winner, Plains Indian. John McConnell - who's horses are always worth watching at early-season meetings at Cheltenham - could run two-time hurdler winner, Grand Soir.

Dan Skelton has also an entry to Quid Pro Quo, who disappointed when only fourth in the Persian War Novices' Hurdle at Chepstow. The second and third-placed runners in the Persian War, Outlaw Peter and Presentandcounting have also been entered up. Ben Pauling's Getaway Drumlee could also make an appearance.
