Abacadabras just magic in Aintree Hurdle

Abacadabras made amends for crashing out at Cheltenham when taking Grade One honours in the Betway Aintree Hurdle on the Liverpool course.

The latter was main when Jason The Militant, who unseated Rachael Blackmore after leaping the seventh flight, went throughout him on the second-last.

Kennedy mentioned: “I obtained there manner too quickly on him, however the free horse (Jason The Militant) actually helped me hold him .

“Two and a half miles there, ridden patiently, it suited him nice – and he jumped nice.

“I’m delighted for the entire workforce again at house, Cullentra – they’re among the finest groups in racing and so they work extraordinarily arduous, so it is sensible to reward them with winners like this.

“He jumps like a real hurdler – I suppose he might jump a fence as well.”

“He was just actually outclassed – however he is house secure and sound, which is the primary factor.”
