Pinsent Masons Handicap Hurdle Tips, Predictions, and Previews
Note: the tips below refer to the 2021 Grand National Festival; updated previews will be available on the week of the 2022 Festival.
A glimpse at the racecard shows that this is a classy Grade 2 bumper pitting together a host of previous winners with bright futures ahead of them.
The Gossiper is the lone Irish raider and needs to be feared as such, given how things have been playing out this week, but Nicky Henderson’s Kempton winner Balco Coastal also looks smart. At the early prices, SUPER SIX gets the nod for Nigel and Sam Twiston-Davies. He’s 2-3 in this sphere and finished a good fifth in the Cheltenham Champion Bumper last time. An extra furlong looks favourable here.
