Irish Saint Goes For Adonis Glory At Kempton

Paul Nicholls will be hoping that he can add to his JCB Triumph Hurdle team on Saturday when exciting four-year-old Irish Saint lines up for the Grade Two Adonis Juvenile Hurdle at Kempton Park, which is a leading trial for the Cheltenham Festival contest.

The Ditcheat maestro used this race as a springboard to Zarkandar's victory in 2011, as he went on to win the Triumph and he will be hoping that Irish Saint can emulate those heroics tomorrow before a crack at the Cheltenham Festival crown.

Nicholls already has Far West as a major player in the Triumph, but he could well have another after the weekend's race and Irish Saint is looking to bounce back to winning ways after being beaten by Rolling Star in the Triumph Trial at Cheltenham last time out.

The pair pulled way clear of their rivals that day, but the Nicky Henderson-trained raider just edged the contest and was instantly cut towards the ante-post favourite for the event and so Irish Saintw ill be hoping to show he too could be a challenger.

However, he will have some notable opposition and Alan King's L'unique was a winner at Kempton's Park Lanzarote Hurdle meeting and will be aiming for his third win out of three on these shores and shaped as if there was a lot more improvement to come.

Gary Moore's Chris Pea Green is another who is looking for a hat-trick of wins and he is another lively outsider in the Triumph market and can't be discounted, whilst the likes of Courtesy Call and Vasco Du Ronceray from the Henderson camp will be another duo who stand a chance in what will be an infomative renewal.
