Classy Field Set For Doncaster's 32Red Hurdle

With Sandown Park's national hunt fixture on Saturday in jeopardy due to the inclement weather, it's Doncaster that have taken the initiative and put on an extra jumps fixture that could see some potential Cheltenham Festival runners put some finishing touches to their prep work.

Reigning Champion Hurdler Rock On Ruby was entered for the Contenders Hurdle at Sandown Park, but Harry Fry has already touched on the fact that he is likely to miss that race and was planning to wait until the Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton next month.

However, the Listed 32 Red Hurdle at Doncaster on Monday could be a perfect alternative for last year's Cheltenham hero and he may well head to the Yorkshire venue to try and ignite a season which will end up with him trying to regain the coveted Champion Hurdle crown on March 12.

He could face some notable adversaries for that Doncaster contest as Nicky Henderson has also entered impressive Christmas Hurdle winner Darlan, who is looking to cement his place in the higher echelons of the 2013 Champion Hurdle betting market.  Second to Cinders And Ashes in last year's Supreme Novices' Hurdle, the Seven Barrows inmate was superb on his comeback run at Kempton Park on Boxing Day and he will look to emulate that display on Monday.

He beat Countrywide Flame that day convincingly, but last year's Triumph Hurdle winner could well be handed another tilt at Henderson's raider in this mouth-watering prospect and he will be hoping to recapture the form that saw him trounce Cinders And Ashes in the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle at the beginning of the season.
